Dr. Paul Mischel discusses how molecular medicine is opening up new ways to treat and diagnose brain cancer.

Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure recently funded Dr. Karen Aboody, a pioneering stem cell researcher at the City of Hope Medical Center in Duarte, California. 

She is working on a revolutionary new cancer treatment for the very worst brain tumors called glioblastomas (GBM).  These types of tumors are so invasive that until now there's been no way to get large enough amounts of chemotherapy through the blood-brain barrier. 

A University of Alabama at Birmingham study has identified a gene deletion in nearly 25 percent of all glioblastoma cases that is believed to be responsible for poor patient outcomes. The discovery could lead to better diagnosis and targeted treatments with drugs that are currently available.
