What’s on the Horizon for Brain Tumor Treatment?
« on: July 27, 2018, 01:30:49 pm »
Brain cancer is a relatively uncommon type of cancer, accounting for only 1 percent of new cancer diagnoses. More commonly, brain tumors arise because a patient’s cancer has metastasized, or spread, from other primary tumor(s).

The most common cancer in adults that originates in the brain is glioblastoma, which is characterized by the uncontrolled proliferation of glial cells, known as the “supporting cells” of the nervous system. Traditionally, metastatic brain tumors and brain cancer have been treated with surgery and radiation and/or chemotherapy, but researchers are investigating other therapies in the hopes of increasing survivorship and life expectancy.
