Scientists Find Ally in Fight Against Brain Tumors: Ebola

Glioblastomas are relentless, hard-to-treat, and often lethal brain tumors. Scientists have enlisted a most unlikely ally in efforts to treat this form of cancer -- elements of the Ebola ...

Scientists Breach Brain Barriers to Attack Tumors

The brain is equipped with barriers designed to keep out dangerous pathogens. Researchers have now found a novel way to circumvent the brain's natural defenses when they're ...

Jawless Fish Take a Bite out of the Blood-Brain Barrier

A jawless parasitic fish could help lead the way to more effective treatments for multiple brain ailments, including cancer, trauma and stroke. Researchers borrowed molecules from the immune system ...

Potential New Approach Against Fatal Childhood Brain Cancer

In mouse models of DIPG, a fatal childhood brain cancer, simultaneously attacking two metabolic pathways led to significant improvements in ...

New Drug Targets for Lethal Brain Cancer Discovered

More than 200 genes with novel and known roles in glioblastoma - the most aggressive type of brain cancer - offer promising new drug targets. Researchers engineered a new mouse model to show for the ...

Brain Tumors May Be Seeded from Distant Site

A mouse model of glioblastoma, an aggressive type of cancer that can occur in the brain, suggests that this recalcitrant cancer originates from a pool of stem cells that can be a significant distance ...

Unexpected Associations Found Between Drug Response and Cell Changes in Brain Cancer

Therapies for treating glioblastoma brain cancer can be delivered with greater precision and existing drugs can be used in new ways. These are the conclusions from a stud investigating a large number ...

New Targets for Childhood Brain Tumors Identified

People with the genetic condition neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) are prone to developing tumors on nervous system tissue. A new study has found that the development and growth of such tumors are ...

A Promising New Treatment for Recurrent Pediatric Brain Cancer

Researchers developed a novel approach that delivers appropriately-targeted chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cell therapy directly into the cerebrospinal fluid that surrounds recurrent pediatric ...

Optical Imaging Technology May Help Surgeons Better Treat Cancer, Brain Diseases

Researchers created technology that uses optical imaging to better help surgeons map out tumors in the body and help them understand how certain diseases affect activity in the ...

Targeting a Transporter to Treat SHH Medulloblastoma

Scientists have identified a novel target for a type of pediatric brain ...

Despite Failures, Chemo Still Promising Against Dangerous Childhood Brain Cancer, DIPG

The pediatric brain cancer known as diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG) is almost uniformly fatal. In part, this is due to where and how it grows, forming as a diffuse net of cells in a part of ...

From Scorpion to Immunotherapy: Repurposing Nature's Toxin for CAR T

Scientists have developed and tested the first chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cell therapy using chlorotoxin (CLTX), a component of scorpion venom, to direct T cells to target brain tumor cells, ...

Imaging Can Guide Whether Liquid Biopsy Will Benefit Individual Glioblastoma Patients

New research shows brain imaging may be able to predict when a blood test known as a liquid biopsy would or would not produce clinically actionable information, allowing doctors to more efficiently ...

Targeting Stromal Cells May Help Overcome Treatment Resistance in Glioblastoma

The deadly brain cancer glioblastoma (GBM) is often resistant to chemotherapy and radiation, but new research shows targeting stromal cells -- the cells that serve as the connective tissue of the ...

Combination Drug Therapy for Childhood Brain Tumors Shows Promise in Laboratory Models

In experiments with human cells and mice, researchers report evidence that combining the experimental cancer medication TAK228 (also called sapanisertib) with an existing anti-cancer drug called ...

Finding a Cure for Dog's Brain Cancer May Help Us Find a Cure for Ourselves

For cancers such as glioma, preclinical research models have failed to provide sufficient insight for medical progress. A team has now thoroughly analyzed sporadic canine gliomas and found that their ...

Brain Tumors Remodel Neuronal Synapses to Promote Growth

Scientists discovered that glioma, a lethal form of brain cancer, alters the activity of neighboring neurons, accelerating a vicious cycle that drives tumor-associated epilepsy and tumor ...

Unexpected Connection Between Gliomas, Neurodegenerative Diseases

New basic science and clinical research identifies TAU, the same protein studied in the development of Alzheimer's, as a biomarker for glioma ...

Improved Brain Chip for Precision Medicine

A biomedical research team is reporting an improvement on a microfluidic brain cancer chip. The new chip allows quick assessment of the effectiveness of cancer drugs on brain ...

Peering Into the Genome of Brain Tumor

Scientists have created a machine learning method for classifying the mutations of glioma brain tumors based on MR images alone. Thus far, classification has only been possible by tissue sampling ...

Brain Tumor Organoids May Be Key to Time-Sensitive Treatments for Glioblastomas

Lab-grown brain organoids developed from a patient's own glioblastoma, the most aggressive and common form of brain cancer, may hold the answers on how to best treat it. A new study showed how ...

Ultrasound Blasts Potent Glioblastoma Drug Into Brain Tumor

A potent drug for glioblastoma can't be used in patients. It can't reach its target because it's blocked by the blood-brain barrier, and the conventional formulation for this drug is ...
