Animal study shows depriving deadly brain cancer of cholesterol kills tumour cells.

Adult brain cancers are almost always universally fatal, due in part to the biochemical composition of the central nervous system and the blood-brain barrier, which selectively and protectively limits the … Continue Reading Animal study shows depriving deadly brain cancer of cholesterol kills tumour cells.

Large-scale study identifies new epigenetic subtypes of brain cancer.

Diffuse gliomas represent 80% of all malignant brain tumours. Adult diffuse gliomas are classified and graded according to histological criteria.  However, although histopathology classification is well established it suffers from unstandardized, … Continue Reading Large-scale study identifies new epigenetic subtypes of brain cancer.

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.

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.

Hijacking the brain’s blood supply, tumour discovery could aid treatment.

Dangerous brain tumours hijack the brain’s existing blood supply throughout their progression, by growing only within narrow potential spaces between and along the brain’s thousands of small blood vessels, new … Continue Reading Hijacking the brain’s blood supply, tumour discovery could aid treatment.
