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 ...

Brain cancer growth halted by absence of protein, study finds

The growth of certain aggressive brain tumors can be halted by cutting off their access to a signaling molecule produced by the brain's nerve cells, according to a new study by researchers at the Stanford University School ...

Attractive drug candidate identified to target glioma brain tumors

In a paper published today in Cancer Research, researchers: 1) identify a biomarker enzyme associated with aggressive glioma brain tumors, 2) reveal the regulatory mechanism for that enzyme, and 3) demonstrate potent efficacy, ...
