Researchers have discovered a new way to target and kill cancer cells in hard-to-treat brain tumours using electrically charged molecules to trigger self-destruction, that could be developed into a ...

Researchers have designed a device that can help test treatments in patients with gliomas, a type of tumor that originates in the brain or spinal ...

A study sheds new light on why tumors that have spread to the brain from other parts of the body respond to immunotherapy while glioblastoma, an aggressive cancer that originates in the brain, does ...

Scientists discovered that anti-CTLA-4 immunotherapy extended the lives of mice with glioblastoma by causing specialized CD4+ T immune cells to 1) infiltrate the brain and 2) tell brain-resident ...

A new boron agent drastically improves the effectiveness of boron neutron capture therapy for glioblastoma. The agent is selectively absorbed by brain tumor cells, exhibits enhanced blood retention, ...

New AI tool enables in-surgery genomic profiling of gliomas, the most aggressive and most common brain tumors. This information offers critical clues about how aggressive a cancer is, its future ...

A new vaccine boosts the response of engineered CAR-T cells and helps the immune system generate T cells that target other tumor antigens. The researchers found this approach made it more likely that ...

A group led by researchers at Nagoya University in Japan used nanowires to develop a technology for capturing cell-free DNA from cancer cells in urine samples. Using their technique, they captured ...

Folate-based radiopharmaceuticals can be used in positron emission tomography (PET) imaging to detect folate receptors in brain tumours. The discovery of folate receptors and their exploitation ...

A new, biodegradable ultrasound far more powerful than previous devices could make brain cancers more treatable, researchers ...

Researchers are describing the results of a recent clinical trial -- a breakthrough in glioblastoma treatment with the help of a modified cold virus injected directly into the tumor. When combined ...

Scientists have shown that a new targeted therapy drug can extend the amount of time people with a subtype of glioma are on treatment without their cancer worsening. The finding suggests a possible ...

Researchers have partnered to create a first-of-its-kind open-source, reproducible analysis platform for pediatric brain tumors. With the help of thousands of genomically sequenced samples, ...

The difficult-to-treat brain cancer glioblastoma steals a person's mental faculties as it spreads, yet the tumor's insidious ability to infiltrate neighboring networks in the brain could ...

In the first in-human clinical trial, scientists used a novel, skull-implantable ultrasound device to open the blood-brain barrier and repeatedly permeate large, critical regions of the human brain ...

Medication delivered by a novel gel cured 100% of mice with an aggressive brain cancer, a striking result that offers new hope for patients diagnosed with glioblastoma, one of the deadliest and most ...

Medical researchers have found that glioblastoma tumor cells are particularly sensitive to ferroptosis -- a type of cell death that can be triggered by removing certain amino acids from the ...

Using artificial intelligence, researchers have discovered how to screen for genetic mutations in cancerous brain tumors in under 90 seconds -- and possibly streamline the diagnosis and treatment of ...

Researchers have developed a new drug delivery approach that uses nanoparticles to enable more effective and targeted delivery of anti-cancer drugs to treat brain tumors in ...

Previous studies have suggested a possible link between head injury and increased rates of brain tumors but evidence has been limited and often inconclusive. A team has now identified a possible ...
