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 have identified the first oncogenes responsible for the brain tumour, choroid plexus carcinoma.
Researchers have identified three genes that play a pivotal role in the brain tumour, choroid plexus carcinoma (CPC), a discovery that lays the groundwork for more effective treatment of this … Continue Reading Researchers have identified the first oncogenes responsible for the brain tumour, choroid plexus carcinoma.
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.
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.
Glioblastomas are a highly aggressive type of brain tumour, with few effective treatment options. Moffitt Cancer Center researchers are one step closer to understanding glioblastoma development following the identification of … Continue Reading Researchers map protein pathway involved in brain tumour stem cell growth.
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.
A new study by Johns Hopkins researchers links a well-known cell communication pathway called Notch to one of the most common brain tumours found in children. Their study suggests the … Continue Reading Notch pathway mapped and linked to common pediatric brain tumour.
UT Southwestern Medical Center researchers have discovered that brain tumours are capable of burning acetate for fuel, providing a new potential target for halting tumour growth. The opensource study is published … Continue Reading Neuro-oncologists discover cancer cells can burn acetate for fuel.
