Blocking of an enzyme stops brain tumour cells from growing

By blocking of an enzyme that affects the cellular microenvironment it is possible to stop brain tumour cells from growing. This is shown in a new study published in the journal Molecular Cancer Therapeutics by researchers at Uppsala University in collaboration with researchers in Haifa, Israel and Brisbane, Australia.

Brain tumours constitute 25% of all childhood cancers. Among those are malignant forms such as medulloblastoma, a cancer of the cerebellum.
