Astrocyte immunometabolic regulation of the tumour microenvironment drives glioblastoma pathogenicity

https://doi.org/10.1093/brain/awac222 Summary: Glioblastomas are incredibly deadly brain tumors. While there have been decades of research on curing these cancers, survival rates haven't increased much. Recently, a study out of Tel Aviv looked at what makes glioblastomas so resistant to treatment. Results showed that glioblastomas are protected and fed by astrocytes. Astrocytes are specialized glial cells… Continue reading Astrocyte immunometabolic regulation of the tumour microenvironment drives glioblastoma pathogenicity
