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

Breakthrough in Glioblastoma Treatment With the Help of a Virus

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 with an immunotherapy drug, the authors observed a subset of patients that appeared to be living ...

New Drug Delays Progression of Glioma, a Deadly Brain Cancer

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 new treatment option for people with the slow-growing but deadly brain ...
