Phase 1 Study Results Show CAR T-cell Therapy Promising in Solid Brain Tumors

Glioblastoma tumors were successfully infiltrated by investigational CAR therapy with an acceptable safety profile.

Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy Combination Prolongs Survival in Low-grade Glial Brain Cancer

The addition of chemotherapy to radiation therapy prolonged survival in adults with grade 2 glial brain tumors.

Altered Metabolism of Four Compounds Drives Glioblastoma Growth

The altered metabolism of methionine, tryptophan, kynurenine, and 5-methylthioadenosine can drive the development of glioblastoma. Results also suggest ways to treat the cancer, slow its growth, and precisely elucidate its extent.

Novel Drug Combination Inhibits Growth of MYC-driven Medulloblastoma

The growth of medulloblastoma was inhibited by a new drug in research conducted in cell cultures and mice. This study targeted a particularly aggressive form of the disease driven by the oncogene MYC.

Novel Approach Harnesses Dendritic Cells to Treat Glioma

Research Unit Aims To Train Nurses to Provide Better Care to Clinical Trial Patients

A research unit created by oncology nurses trains nurses to provide high quality care to patients in oncology clinical trials.

Clinical Trial Infusion Nurse Orientation Improves Care for Patients in Investigational Studies

A clinical trial infusion nurse orientation improves training for nurses so they can better care for patients participating in investigational trials.

Antibody Therapy Reduces Numbers of Cancer Stem Cells in Patients With Multiple Myeloma

Cancer stem cells that drive tumor growth were halved by MEDI-551, an experimental antibody treatment for multiple myeloma, according to results of a small preliminary clinical trial.
