Brain tumors are responsible for 25 percent of cancer-related deaths in children and young adults.
Multiple studies suggest that cancer stem cells within these tumors resist therapy and are responsible for tumor recurrences.
Despite initial response to treatment, most aggressive brain tumors eventually recur and are ultimately incurable.
Researchers have devised a strategy to treat these tumors by identifying a secretion-mediated pathway that's essential for maintaining glioma cancer stem cells.
Researchers describe a new technique for precisely measuring the temperature and behavior of new two-dimensional materials that will allow engineers to design smaller and faster microprocessors.
