Adrenocortical carcinoma (acc) is a rare malignancy of the adrenal cortex, associated with a generally dismal prognosis owing to its aggressive behavior. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to this disease.
The use of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation or blood and marrow transplantation (bmt) is on the increase worldwide. BMT is used to replace damaged or destroyed bone marrow with healthy bone marrow stem cells. Here is the latest research on bone and marrow transplantation.
Glioblastoma is the most common and aggressive type of brain tumor. It contains a population of tumor initiating stem cell-like cells known as cancer stem cells. Investigations are ongoing into these cancer stem cells found in these solid tumors which are highly resistance to treatment. Here is the latest research on cancer stem cells in glioblastoma.
Tumors within the cerebellum of the brain can be malignant or benign. This is often a secondary site for metastasis from other cancers, including lung and breast cancer. Symptoms of cerebellar tumors include ataxia and intracranial hypertension. Here is the latest research on cerebellar neoplasms.
Cerebral Ventricle Neoplasms are cancers that occur in the brain ventricles, which are structures that produce fluid for the spine and brain. Discover the latest research on Cerebral Ventricle Neoplasms here.
DPP4 has the potential to truncate proteins. DPP4-mediated truncation of certain chemokines, interleukins, and colony stimulating factors have recently been linked to regulation of hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells. Given its role in tumor biology, it is also used as a marker for various cancers. Here is the latest research.
