[05/06/2012] New research from the University of Wisconsin-Madison explains why the incurable brain cancer, glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), is highly resistant to current chemotherapies.Brain Cancer: Treating Drug-resistant Tumour Cells - Read more

From Stem Cell to Brain Cell: New Technique Mimics the Brain

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[24/05/2012] A new technique that converts stem cells into brain cells has been developed by researchers at Lund University. The method is simpler, quicker and safer than previous research has shown and opens the doors to a shorter route to clinical cell transplants.From Stem Cell to Brain Cell: New Technique Mimics the Brain - Read more

Drugs Ferry: ”We are not limited to one active ingredient group or one active ingredient“

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[08/05/2012] Drugs that treat brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease or multiple sclerosis are most effective directly where they are needed – in the brain. Unfortunately, it is difficult to develop drugs that are capable of getting there specifically, since the so-called blood-brain barrier prevents this from happening. However, now a team led by Doctor Heiko Manninga succeeded in doing precisely that. Drugs Ferry: ”We are not limited to one active ingredient group or one active ingredient“ - Read more

Control by the Matrix: Role of Proteins in the Cell Environment

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[14/12/2011] How astrocytes, certain cells of the nervous system, are generated was largely unknown up to now. Researchers of Ruhr-Universität Bochum (Germany) have now investigated what influence the cell environment, known as the extracellular matrix, has on this process.Control by the Matrix: Role of Proteins in the Cell Environment - Read more

Tumour Cell Formation and Growth: Metabolic Protein Plays Unexpected Role

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[07/11/2011] The embryonic enzyme pyruvate kinase M2 (PKM2) has a well-established role in metabolism and is highly expressed in human cancers. Now, a team led by researchers at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Centre reports that PKM2 has important non-metabolic functions in cancer formation.Tumour Cell Formation and Growth: Metabolic Protein Plays Unexpected Role - Read more

New Metabolic Pathway: Dioxin-like Chemical Messenger Makes Brain Tumours More Aggressive

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[07/10/2011] A research alliance of Heidelberg University Hospital and the German Cancer Research Centre (Deutsches Krebsforschungszentrum, DKFZ), jointly with colleagues of the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research in Leipzig, have discovered a new metabolic pathway which makes malignant brain tumours (gliomas) more aggressive and weakens patients’ immune systems.New Metabolic Pathway: Dioxin-like Chemical Messenger Makes Brain Tumours More Aggressive - Read more

Children: Incidental Findings – Dilemma for Doctors and Patients

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[16/06/2010] Paediatricians whose patients undergo "routine" brain MRIs need a plan to deal with findings that commonly reveal unexpected-but-benign anomalies that are unlikely to cause any problem, reports a research team led by Johns Hopkins Children's Centre investigators. Children: Incidental Findings – Dilemma for Doctors and Patients - Read more

Cancer: Delivering Medicine into a Tumour

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[14/12/2009] Researchers have identified a peptide (a chain of amino acids) that specifically recognizes and penetrates cancerous tumours but not normal tissues.Cancer: Delivering Medicine into a Tumour - Read more

Cell Phones: No Change in Brain Tumour Incidence

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[07/12/2009] There was no substantial change in brain tumour incidence among adults five to ten years after cell phone usage sharply increased, according to a new brief communication. This does not mean, however, that there is no risk.Cell Phones: No Change in Brain Tumour Incidence - Read more

Imaging: Lighting up Tumors

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[18/08/2009] Researchers have been able to illuminate brain tumors by injecting fluorescent nanoparticles into the bloodstream that safely cross the blood-brain barrier – an almost impenetrable barrier that protects the brain from infection. Imaging: Lighting up Tumors - Read more

Brain: Method Predicts which Tumors Will Respond to Drug

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[12/08/2009] Researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), have uncovered a new way to scan brain tumors and predict which ones will be shrunk by the drug Avastin - before the patient ever starts treatment. Brain: Method Predicts which Tumors Will Respond to Drug - Read more

Parkinson's: Cell Therapy Advanced
