Study identifies new nutrient-based mechanism of cancer proliferation, drug resistance.

Cancer researchers have known for years that tumours have unusual metabolisms, their rapid use of glucose is used as a diagnostic tool for tumours in PET scans.  However, only recently … Continue Reading Study identifies new nutrient-based mechanism of cancer proliferation, drug resistance.

Researchers show that brain cancer proliferation is stimulated by nerve activity in the cortex.

Deadly brain tumours called high-grade gliomas grow with the help of nerve activity in the cerebral cortex, according to a new study by researchers at the Stanford University School of … Continue Reading Researchers show that brain cancer proliferation is stimulated by nerve activity in the cortex.

Researchers identify noncoding RNA crucial for stem cell suppression in the brain.

A research team at UC San Francisco has discovered an RNA molecule called Pnky that can be manipulated to increase the production of neurons from neural stem cells.  The opensource … Continue Reading Researchers identify noncoding RNA crucial for stem cell suppression in the brain.

Revolutionary probe enables surgeons to detect all invasive brain cancer cells during surgery.

Brain cancer patients may live longer thanks to a new cancer-detection method developed by researchers at the Montreal Neurological Institute, McGill University and the Polytechnique Montréal. The collaborative team has … Continue Reading Revolutionary probe enables surgeons to detect all invasive brain cancer cells during surgery.
