Brain Cancer

  1. -02-07-06 Breakthrough in Brain Cancer Research (
      "In their quest to find and exploit vulnerabilities in the natural armor that protects malignant brain tumors from destruction, researchers have found a way to decrease the cells resistance to therapies that are designed to trigger cell death. The findings resulted from laboratory experiments conducted at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center’s Maxine Dunitz Neurosurgical Institute and are based on the manipulation of a series of intricate biochemical events taking place within brain tumor cells." 02-06

  2. Brain Cancer (
      "There are two types of brain tumors: primary brain tumors that originate in the brain and metastatic (secondary) brain tumors that originate from cancer cells that have migrated from other parts of the body."

      "Aside from a known association with exposure to vinyl chloride, there are no known chemical or environmental agents that lead to the development of brain tumors." 02-06

  3. Brain Cancer Basics and Treatments (
      "It is important to understand the difference between primary brain tumors and brain metastases because they are treated differently. I occasionally hear the media refer to a person who died of lung cancer and brain cancer, when, in actuality, it was lung cancer that had metastasized to the brain." 02-06

  4. Brain Tumor: Glioblastoma (American Brain Tumor Association)
      "Glioblastomas (GBM) are tumors that arise from astrocytes—the star-shaped cells that make up the “glue-like,” or supportive tissue of the brain. These tumors are usually highly malignant (cancerous) because the cells reproduce quickly and they are supported by a large network of blood vessels." 10-14
