The aim of this study was to determine the experience of patients with brain tumors and their carers across distinct parts of their treatment pathway and identify their views on potential service gaps in need of addressing.

Just when you thought you've seen it all as a Long Islander, Northwell performs another first. Neurosurgeons at North Shore University Hospital removed a glioblastoma brain tumor using a new imaging tool that transforms the way diseased cells are targeted - the first surgery of its kind on Long Island.

Brain cancer is one of the deadliest cancers. The surgery to remove the tumor is often very invasive. But now engineers at Vanderbilt University have designed a device that can make surgery easier for both doctor and patient, and the same technology also holds promise for lung cancer diagnosis.

A new compound discovered by scientists at Scripps Research may prove to be a powerful weapon in the fight against one of the most aggressive and deadly types of cancer. Just like the cancer it fights, the compound is incredibly strong, selectively targeting the cells that allow glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) to rapidly take over the brain.

A Children's Oncology Group study shows that postoperative radiation improves outcomes for children with ependymoma, even those with historically poor prognoses and the very young

A study found that an inhibitor of an enzyme called ACVR1 slows tumor growth and increases survival in an animal model of diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG) -- the most deadly brain tumor in children.
