Cellular 'Racetrack' Accurately Clocks Brain Cancer Cell Movement
Lab test may predict glioblastoma aggression and spread
With the ability to observe and document how quickly brain tumor cells move, doctors will be able to predict how quickly and aggressively a given cancer might lethally spread throughout the body. “After I remove a brain tumor from a patient, the patient always asks me, ‘Doc, how long do I have?’ I don’t have a reliable way to answer them,” says Alfredo Quinones-Hinojosa, MD, director of the Brain Tumor Surgery Program and professor of neurosurgery at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. “But we have taken a step to creating a possible way to provide useful updates, inform treatment choices and perhaps develop new treatments faster.” To read more, click here.
