Unraveling Brain Tumors — Molecular Biologists Devise Strategy To Starve Brain Tumors
Daily Science September 1, 2007 — Brain tumor researchers have found that brain tumors arise from cancer stem cells living within tiny protective areas formed by blood vessels in the brain. Killing those cells is a promising strategy to eliminate tumors and prevents them from re-growing. The researchers have found that drugs that block new blood vessel formation can destroy the protected areas and stop cancer from developing.
