Experts find gene signature that may improve brain tumor surgery
June 14, 2019
CUTLINE: A team of physicians and neuroscientists from Dartmouth, Harvard and Georgetown University have uncovered the biological basis for fluorescence in fluorescence-guided neurosurgery providing a potential pathway to maximize the effectiveness of surgery for brain tumors. SUMMARY: Despite optimal medical management, aggressive brain cancers, like Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) tend to be lethal. One of the most effective medical interventions for this type of cancer is surgery. Maximizing the extent of the surgical resection of these tumors improve survival significantly, unfortunately the surgeon’s ability to achieve good resection is challenged by the lack of obvious tumor borders. This study unveils the gene expression pattern that allows brain tumors to ‘glow’ when treated with 5-aminolevulinic acid, providing a basis to identify novel strategies to maximize the effectiveness of brain tumor surgery, and improve patient...
