Commonly associated with helping improve brain function, the omega 3 fatty acid DHA may have another, previously unknown benefit. A new study reports DHA and other related fatty acids may help slow the development of cancerous tumors.
Naked mole rats have a unique DNA repair mechanism that prevents them from developing cancers and neurodegenerative disorders, researchers say.
Neural activity plays an underappreciated role in the development and growth of nervous system cancers, a new study reports.
Combining αGITR antibodies with ICBs resulted in stronger survival benefits in mouse models of human glioblastoma brain cancer.
Glioblastoma can mimic the normal repair of white matter in the brain, causing the tumor to become less malignant. Additionally, a drug commonly prescribed for asthma can help suppress glioblastoma growth in mouse models.
Loneliness in middle-aged men increased the risk of them developing cancer by 10%.
A newly developed ion pump can deliver cancer-fighting drugs more accurately, and with fewer side effects than conventional chemotherapy, to those with glioblastoma brain cancer.
Administering the chemotherapy drug temozolomide to glioblastoma brain cancer patients in the morning may enhance the cancer-fighting effects. The study demonstrates the timing of chemotherapy could have a significant impact on treatment for glioblasto…
Two existing medications show promise in the treatment of the deadly childhood cancer, neuroblastoma. Phenformin and AZD3965 exploit the metabolic hunger of the disease to kill cancer cells without inflicting excessive damage to healthy tissue.
Researchers have carried out clinical trials to test a mutation-specific vaccine against malignant brain tumors. The vaccine has been found to be safe and effective in triggering the desired immune response in the brain cancer tumors.
Study shows how cholesterol becomes dysregulated in brain cancer cells and reports the gene responsible for the dysregulation could be a potential target to help treat glioblastoma brain cancer.
A new, large-scale neuroimaging study found potentially life-threatening conditions in 1 out of 500 seemingly healthy children, and minor yet clinically significant brain abnormalities in 1 out of 25 children.
Night-shifts destroy the natural 24-hour biological rhythm in the activity of certain cancer-related genes, resulting in more vulnerability to DNA damage and causing a mistiming in the DNA repair mechanisms in shift workers.
Researchers have developed a Dp44mT nano-carrier that can directly target glioblastoma and other brain cancer cells.
Treating mouse models of astrocytomas with a new combination therapy resulted in tumor regression in 60% of the mice.
Disabling the CD161 pathway restores the T-cell’s ability to attack gliomas and extends lifespan in animal models of brain cancer.
A new zebrafish model holds the potential for future studies of glioblastoma, an aggressive and lethal brain cancer.
Study reveals a detailed map of gene proteins, infiltrating cells, and signaling pathways that play significant roles in the development and progression of glioblastoma brain cancer.
Inhibiting the SCD enzyme and blocking the function of FOSB blunts acquired drug resistance and improves survival in mouse models of glioblastoma brain cancer.
Researchers discovered all neuroblastomas arise from a single type of embryonic cell called sympathoblasts. The findings could lead to new avenues of treatment for the aggressive childhood cancer.
