    Research paper from Cureus curated by Editor in Chief George Lundberg, MD, who notes: 

    Breast cancer in men is unusual but important. This academic paper outlines the case of a specific patient who was found to have a genetic mutation that could explain why he was diagnosed at a relatively younger age.

    Article from WKYC Studios curated by Editor in Chief George Lundberg, MD, who notes: 

    An experimental treatment in which the virus that causes polio is directly injected into glioblastoma (GBM) tissue has shown some promise, as reported in the New England Journal of Medicine in 2018. This news story from WKYC provides a partial update from an ongoing subsequent clinical trial.

    Research paper from Neuro-Oncology curated by Editor in Chief George Lundberg, MD, who notes: 

    These clinical trial results suggest that six cycles of temozolomide is as effective as 12 for patients with glioblastoma and produces fewer side effects.

    Research paper from the Journal of Neuro-Oncology curated by Editor in Chief George Lundberg, MD, who notes: 

    Safety and potential adverse effects are serious issues with many cancer treatments. This academic paper outlines post-marketing research that reveals few adverse effects from a type of treatment known as tumor-treating fields (TTF) in brain malignancies.

    Research paper from Cancers curated by Editor in Chief George Lundberg, MD, who notes: 

    Instead of focusing on “curing” cancer, the authors of this academic research paper focus on approaches to managing cancer as a chronic disease.

    Research paper from Journal of Neuro-Oncology curated by Editor in Chief George Lundberg, MD, who notes: 

    Tumor-treating fields (TTF) is a type of cancer treatment that uses alternating electric pulses. Its use for adults with high-grade gliomas remains controversial, and as outlined in this academic review paper, more high-quality research is needed.

    Academic research paper from Clinical Epigenetics curated by Editor in Chief George Lundberg, MD, who notes: 

    Brain tumor treatment decisions may be improved by integrating methylation-based tumor classification into the diagnosis process. Methylation refers to specific chemical features of tumor DNA that may impact how well different treatments might work.

    Article from Clinical OMICs curated by Editor in Chief George Lundberg, MD, who notes: 

    Researchers have recently demonstrated a noninvasive way to diagnose and classify brain tumors using a blood test. This promising “liquid biopsy” method detects cell-free tumor DNA in the blood and analyzes its chemical features—specifically, its “methylation patterns”—with high sensitivity and accuracy. Such a test could help guide treatment decisions.

    Article from MedPage Today curated by Editor in Chief George Lundberg, MD, who notes: 

    Chemotherapy in the form of a single drug (as opposed to a combination of drugs) remains the best treatment for relapsed, platinum-resistant, serous, epithelial ovarian cancer. However, clinical trials are exploring new targeted therapy and immunotherapy options for this disease.
