Cracking the code of a brain cancer that keeps coming back
Aug 29, 2019
Powerful new computer-assisted technology measures thousands of individual cells simultaneously to map cell types and molecular cascades that drive the growth of SHH-medulloblastoma.
Adding multiple sclerosis drug to targeted cancer therapy may improve glioblastoma outcomes
Aug 09, 2019
By reaching stem cells at the tumor's root, multiple sclerosis drug teriflunomide, paired with targeted cancer therapy, markedly shrinks patient-derived glioblastomas grown in mice.
