Promising new strategy to attack the most lethal brain tumor in children

Researchers have revealed new insight into how the most deadly pediatric brain tumor, diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG), may develop. They also have identified a compound that targets the „on“ switch for cancer-promoting genes, which resulted in shrinking tumor size and increased survival in an animal model of DIPG. Preparations for a clinical trial are now under way. (Mehr in: Cancer News — ScienceDaily)
