Low-dose radiation therapy improves delivery of therapeutic nanoparticles to brain tumors
Mar 27, 2019
New study finds that radiation therapy may increase the uptake of therapeutic nanoparticles by glioblastomas, raising the possibility of using both growth-factor-targeted and immune-system-based therapies against the deadly brain tumor.
Radiation after surgery triples survival for a type of pediatric brain tumor
Mar 04, 2019
Study shows that postoperative radiation improves outcomes for children with ependymoma, even those with historically poor prognoses and the very young.
