glioblastoma

A team of German researchers identified the four-microRNA signature and said it might inform treatment decisions.

In an analysis of glioblastoma, the researchers identified changes in protein signaling linked to resistance as early as several days after treatment.

ISB President and Co-founder Lee Hood will join Providence as senior VP and chief science officer as the partners join forces on research.

Two Boston-based researchers shared methods for detecting circulating nucleic acid biomarkers for potential use in cancer diagnosis and monitoring.

In Phase II testing, the company has shown that an epigenetic biomarker associated with the drug's target can predict patients' responses to treatment.

The method, developed by scientists at Uppsala University in Sweden, uses antibody-based proximity assays alongside off-the-shelf gene expression assays.

Through comprehensive genomic profiling, researchers identified molecular events that cause lower grade gliomas to progress to more deadly forms of brain cancer.
