Neural precursor cells induce cell death in certain brain tumors

Neural precursor cells in the young brain suppress certain brain tumors such as high-grade gliomas, especially glioblastoma, which are among the most common and most aggressive tumors. Now researchers have deciphered the underlying mechanism of action with which neural precursor cells protect the young brain against these tumors.

Supposed Help Against Tumors - How Glioblastoma Tumor Cells Use The Body's Protection

Health : Medical News Today (6 years ago)

Glioblastoma is one of the most common but also most aggressive brain tumors, almost invariably leading to death in a short time. It consists of different cell types and their precursors, complicating successful treatment. To fight ... Read Post

Neural stem cells attack glioblastoma cells

Academics / General Science : Science Daily (4 years ago)

Scientists in Germany have demonstrated how the brain's own stem cells and precursor cells control the growth of glioblastomas. Of all brain tumors, glioblastomas are among the most common and most aggressive. They have now shown in... Read Post

How A Neural Stem Cell Turns Into A Tumor Stem Cell - Researchers Identify Key Molecules For Brain Tumor Initiation

Health : Medical News Today (4 years ago)

Glioblastomas, the most common and most aggressive brain tumors, apparently arise from neural stem cells (NSCs) in the brain. Researchers are now beginning to understand the mechanisms of how NSCs, which are present in small quantit... Read Post
