Infiltrating gliomas are shaped by their genetic evolution and microenvironment, researchers report. The findings may help in the development of therapies to treat glioma brain tumors.
Researchers say the gut microbiome may be a viable targetable biomarker to improve immunotherapy responses in those with glioblastoma and a range of other cancers.
Researchers have developed drug-carrying nanoparticles that cross the blood-brain barrier, allowing for more effective delivery to the brain than conventional medications. The nanoparticles can get into tumors and kill glioblastoma brain cancer cells.
Study reveals the ZNF117 gene is a major regulator of glioblastoma tumor cells.
Most cancer patients who used medical cannabis reported a significant improvement in pain measures and a decrease in some other cancer-related symptoms. Additionally, medical cannabis use reduced the consumption of traditional, opioid-based pain killers for those with cancer.
Hypermutation in children may be linked to increased mutations in the sperm of the biological father, especially fathers who received certain forms of chemotherapy to treat cancer early in life.
INSR, a protein essential for insulin activity, plays a critical role in stem cell longevity. Additionally, inactivating INSR in glioblastoma brain cancer stem cells inhibits the growth of primitive tumor forming cells.
