Epigenetic study provides new insights into the origins of glioma

MicroRNA-10b (miR-10b) is a regulatory molecule that is silenced in normal cells of the brain but becomes abundant in more than 90 percent of high-grade gliomas. Glioblastomas (GBM) — the highest grade of glioma — appear ...

Converting glioma cells into neurons may treat glioblastoma

Gliomas are the most common primary brain tumors in adults. Among them, the high-grade glioblastomas (GBMs) are particularly known to be notoriously aggressive and invasive, which makes it challenging to treat them. The disease ...
