Pathway for origin of most common form of brain and spinal cord tumor identified

ScienceDaily (June 13, 2012) — Johns Hopkins researchers say they have discovered one of the most important cellular mechanisms driving the growth and progression of meningioma, the most common form of brain and spinal cord tumor. A report on the discovery, published in the journal Molecular Cancer Research, could lead the way to the discovery of better drugs to attack these crippling tumors, the scientists say. “We are one step closer to identifying genes that can be targeted for treatment,” says study leader Gilson S.
