Trifluoperazine, a dopamine receptor antagonist commonly prescribed for schizophrenia, used in combination with radiation therapy delays the growth of glioblastoma brain tumors and prolongs survival for brain cancer.
Neurons and immune cells work together to promote tumor growth in neurofibromatosis type 1.
Administering medulloblastoma specific CAR T cells into the cerebrospinal fluid was more effective than administering via the blood.
Cannabidiol (CBD) appears to slow the growth of glioblastoma brain cancer cells in both animal and human cell lines. CBD’s anti-cancer actions target mitochondria, causing them to dysfunction and release harmful reactive oxygen species. Cancer cells tr…
Glioma patients whose tumors were hypermutated showed no significant benefit when treated with checkpoint blockers.
Glioma brain tumors disrupt neural synchrony between bilateral cortical regions. The findings provide new insight into the association between seizures and tumor progression.
A new optical imaging tool allows surgeons to map put cancerous tumors and helps to provide a better understanding of how diseases affect brain activity.
Glioma brain tumors alter the function of astrocytes, possibly contributing to seizures many brain cancer patients experience. Astrocytes encasing gliomas exhibit different molecular signatures based on their proximity to the cancer cells. Those direct…
Combining niacin, or vitamin B3, with chemotherapy, helped slow the progression and increase life span in mouse models of glioblastoma.
The ELP1 gene is abnormally mutated in the germline DNA of 15% of children with the Sonic Hedgehog subgroup of medulloblastoma brain cancer.
