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.
