(Ivanhoe Newswire) -- The deletion of a gene called NFKBIA may cause glioblastoma, the most common and malignant brain cancer. Researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine recently discovered that the deletion of this gene, which is known to promote tumor development and resistance to therapy, was present in one out of every four glioblastoma cases. When NFKBIA is deleted, certain biochemical processes occur with striking similarity to an onset of glioblastoma, which often...

A study fast-tracked for online publication Dec. 22 in the New England Journal of Medicine has identified an important gene deletion in up to one of every four cases of glioblastoma, the most common adult brain cancer. This deletion contributes to tumor development, promotes resistance to therapy and considerably worsens a patient's survival prospects. The deletion of the gene, known as NFKBIA, triggers biochemical processes similar to those resulting from a better-known aberration common in...
