Innovative brain tumor operation set to tailor to patients' needs

One of the biggest challenges facing surgeons carrying out the removal of a brain tumor is working out how much of it they can remove without damaging the patient's life afterwards.

Synodos does it again: Breaking barriers to solve the 'impossible' problems

(Children's Tumor Foundation ) Treatment for low-grade gliomas in patients living with neurofibromatosis type 1 are now one step closer thanks to recent research discoveries initiated and funded by the Children's Tumor Foundation. The Foundation's SYNODOS consortium has just recently been published in Nature Medicine, showing that immunotherapy has the potential to impact gliomas.

Growing brain cancer in a dish

Brain tumors are among the most aggressive and deadly cancers and a leading cause of cancer-related death in children and young adults. Glioblastoma is a particularly aggressive form of brain tumor that is characterized by a very rapid tumor growth of glia cells – the most abundant cell types in th...

Immunotherapy Offers Hope to Neurofibromatosis Type 1 Brain Tumor Patients

Although brain tumors have largely remained resistant to immunotherapy, a new study has shown that a slow-growing brain tumor arising in patients affected by neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) may be vulnerable to that treatment approach. The findings (“The molecular landscape of glioma in patients with Neurofibromatosis 1”), made by an international consortium led by researchers […] The pos...

Cancerous cells in aggressive childhood brain tumor work together to infiltrate the brain, shows study

Scientists have discovered that cancerous cells in an aggressive type of childhood brain tumor work together to infiltrate the brain, and this finding could ultimately lead to much needed new treatments, according to a new study published in Nature Medicine today (Monday).

Boy's brain recovers after visual center removed

Surgery to remove a brain tumor took much of the patient's vision. But the remaining part of his brain has adjusted.

Brain & Behavior Research Foundation awards over $13 million in young investigator grants

(Brain & Behavior Research Foundation) The Brain & Behavior Research Foundation announced the awarding of its Young Investigator Grants to 200 of the world's most promising young scientists. The grants, awarded annually, support the work of early-career scientists with innovative ideas for groundbreaking neurobiological research seeking to identify causes, improve treatments and develop prevention...

Death of Sen. John McCain sheds new light on aggressive brain tumor

The death today of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) sheds a new light on glioblastoma, a form of brain cancer that the American Brain Tumor Association estimated would be diagnosed in nearly 13,000 people this year.

Scientists bring new hope to brain tumor patients

Scientists undertook a groundbreaking large-scale study on secondary glioblastomas (sGBM) to search for new therapy treatments. sGBMs are an aggressive type of brain tumor, target younger patients and existing treatment method is insufficient.

Radiation for Childhood Brain Tumor Can Hinder Memory

TUESDAY, Aug. 21, 2018 -- Radiation therapy for the most common childhood brain tumor can cause memory problems, new research suggests. Specifically, it can leave young survivors struggling to create memories of recent personal events, the small...

The Bigger the Brain, the Bigger the Tumor Risk?

TUESDAY, Nov. 6, 2018 -- The bigger your brain, the greater your risk for a deadly brain cancer, new research from Norway suggests. It's a matter of math: A large brain means more brain cells, and more cells means more cell divisions that can go...

Childhood brain tumor treatment impairs new memory formation

(Society for Neuroscience) Young people who received radiation therapy for the most common pediatric brain tumor struggle to create new memories about specific events, according to a study of children and adolescents published in JNeurosci. Their ability to recall events prior to treatment, however, remains intact.

Are machine learning applications in brain tumor imaging worth the challenge?

When imaging brain tumors such as gliomas, machine learning may advance the use of imaging and augment clinical care for patients, according to a review published Oct. 17 in the American Journal of Roentgenology—specifically in tumor segmentation and MRI radiomics.

A 12-Year-Old Had One-Sixth of His Brain Removed. He Feels ‘Perfectly Normal.’
