NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The Translational Genomics Research Institute and its partners Nemucore Medical Innovations and Barrow Neurological Institute at St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center have received a $3 million grant to fund a personalized glioblastoma treatment study.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Glioblastoma tumors essentially hide mutant EGFR in response to therapies targeting those mutations, a new study appearing in Science reported today.

A research team from Northwestern University this week published new data showing that a class of novel nanoparticle conjugates, which have been exclusively licensed to startup AuraSense Therapeutics, can be used to deliver cancer-fighting siRNAs into the brains of mice.

The National Comprehensive Cancer Network now supports MGMT methylation testing in elderly glioblastoma patients to assess the likelihood that they will benefit from temozolomide treatment. This may help spur adoption of MDxHealth's MGMT PredictMDx for Glioblastoma test.

A group of researchers from Massachusetts General Hospital has developed a method using either BEAMing RT-PCR or digital droplet-based PCR to detect mutations associated with glioblastoma brain tumors in RNA extracted from extracellular vesicles released from these tumors into pa

Researchers from the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center are developing a new approach for identifying novel cancer drug targets, combining patient-derived stem cells that retain the specific characteristics of the original tumor with genome-wide RNAi screens to create so-call
