‘Continued research into the biology of adult stem cells will assist in the knowledge of how cancers originate and develop and may lead to possible brand-new therapies for treating intense, currently incurable brain tumors,’ said Dr. Parada. Malignant astrocytoma, or glioma, is one of the most common types of human brain tumor in adults. The tumors are thought to occur from glial cells, which are non-nerve cells offering support and nutrition to cells of the nervous system.
