Massive Cancer Gene Search Finds Potential New Targets In Brain Tumors

Thursday, September 4, 2008 - 16:35 in Biology & Nature

An array of broken, missing and overactive genes have been identified in a genetic survey of glioblastoma, the most common and deadly form of adult brain cancer, report scientists. The large-scale combing of the brain cancer genome confirms the key roles of some previously known mutated genes and implicates a variety of other genetic changes that may be targets for future therapies.
