Look, the government has not found that your cellphone gives you cancer, as many headlines on Friday would have you believe. A two-year, $25 million study conducted by the National Toxicology Program found an increase in brain tumors...Show More Summary
WASHINGTON (AP) — A new federal study of the potential dangers of cellphone radiation, conducted in rats, found a slight increase in brain tumors in males and raised long-dormant concerns about the safety of spending so much time with cellphones glued to our ears. [...]Show More Summary
Partial results from an ongoing $25 million, federally-funded study into the dangers of cellphone radiation found a tentative link between such radiation and two rare types of tumors in male rats. However, the study won't settle the...Show More Summary
WASHINGTON (AP) — National Institutes of Health expert reviewers are finding flaws in the agency’s new study that connects heavy cell phone radiation to a slight increase in brain tumors in male rats. The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences is releasing partial preliminary results of a study on rats bombarded with cell phone radiation […]
Glioblastoma multiforme is an aggressive form of brain tumor. Researchers find a genetic signature that may help improve future treatment and extend life.
Researchers have identified a group of immune system genes that may play a role in how long people can live after developing a common type of brain cancer called glioblastoma multiforme, a tumor of the glial cells in the brain. The research is published in the May 25, 2016, online issue of Neurology(r), the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology.
Teresa: I just received my sons initial ER. My son has tumors on his brain and as a result has epilepsy. He has dyslexia which was diagnosed by an outside evaluator. The school district accepted it. I need help understanding what can be listed in the IEP under primary and secondary DX. His reads OHI. And nothing under secondary. I’m confused.
Tiny drug carriers could help treat brain tumors more efficiently as they are able to get through natural barriers and deliver chemotherapeutic drugs more efficiently, a new study has found.
As an 18-year brain tumor survivor with three awake brain surgeries, radiation, chemotherapy, and clinical trials including immunotherapy with a dendritic cell vaccine, I've gone through many experiences to stay alive. The cancer journey can be complicated and complex. Show More Summary
A study using nanotechnology to treat brain tumors got such good results, the researchers initially questioned themselves. But further testing showed the results held up.
Great discoveries do come in small packages. Few know that better than Ann-Marie Broome, Ph.D., who feels nanotechnology holds the future of medicine with its ability to deliver powerful drugs in tiny, designer packages. Her latest research finds the perfect application - targeting cancerous brain tumor cells. read more
Mariana was brought to Loyola Medical Center to treat a rare brain tumor at the young age of five. Her treatment process was extensive, including surgery, radiation and intense chemotherapy. Throughout it all, Mariana kept an optimistic attitude.
SYDNEY (AP) — An Australian judge has ruled in favor of a couple who refused to allow their 6-year-old son to undergo radiotherapy for a malignant brain tumor. Princess Margaret Hospital in Perth had applied for a Family Court order forcing Oshin Kiszko to undergo radiotherapy for a rare cancer known as medulloblastoma that was […]
Researchers at Umeå University in Sweden and the Cancer Registry of Norway have studied possible causes behind the development of brain tumours. The results, published in the journal Oncotarget, show differences in expression of certain...Show More Summary
Researchers have studied possible causes behind the development of brain tumors. The results show differences in expression of certain molecules known as metabolites when comparing healthy individuals with people who would eventually develop brain tumors. The greatest difference were found when looking at vitamin E.
A new study shows that repeated radiation therapy used to target tumors in the brain may not be as safe to healthy brain cells as previously assumed. The findings, which appear in the International Journal of Radiation Oncology, Biology,...Show More Summary
Support interventions by child life specialists decrease sedation use and costs associated with cranial radiation therapy, new research shows.
Repeated radiation therapy used to target tumors in the brain may not be as safe to healthy brain cells as previously assumed. The findings of a new study show that the treatment also kills important support cells in the brain and may cause as much, if not more damage, than single dose radiation therapy.
New research from St. Jude Children's Research Hospital shows support interventions by child life specialists decrease sedation use and costs associated with cranial radiation therapy.
A recent large-scale study reveals that it is not possible to catch cancer from cell phone usage, according to Medscape. A lot of people will consider this finding assuring since it’s only natural to wonder if putting the cellphone on the ear, close to the brain area, could lead to say, a brain tumor. Show More Summary
