Doctors May Be Able to Slow Progression and Recurrence of Brain Cancer After Discovery

Doctors May Be Able to Slow Progression and Recurrence of Brain Cancer After Discovery Scientists have always believed that glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), the most aggressive type of primary brain tumor, begins in glial cells that compose the supportive tissue in the brain or in neural stem cells. However, a paper published in Science Express reveals that tumors can originate fr... Read More

Test Could Revolutionize Brain Tumor Diagnostics

Test Could Revolutionize Brain Tumor Diagnostics At UT Southwestern Medical Center, researchers have developed what they believe to be the first application of a new imaging technique to diagnose brain tumors. The new test could prevent the need for surgery when the tumor is located in areas of the brain too dangerous to biopsy. Read More

Virus Technology Improves Brain Cancer Diagnosis

Virus Technology Improves Brain Cancer Diagnosis Brain cancer is one of the deadliest forms of cancer, and survival rates for the disease remain very low. While cancer research has allowed for advancements in the identification, diagnosis, and treatment of tumors in the brain, brain cancer is still highly resistant to treatment with cancer c...
