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.
Researchers have devised a strategy to treat these tumors by identifying a secretion-mediated pathway that's essential for maintaining glioma cancer stem cells.
Despite initial response to treatment, most aggressive brain tumors eventually recur and are ultimately incurable.
Researchers have developed a wireless energy source that generates electricity from simple mechanical motion, such as the waves in the ocean, the tap of a foot or the clap of a hand.
