Existing drug could treat aggressive brain cancer
A research team from the University of Georgia’s Regenerative Bioscience Center has found that a compound molecule used for drug delivery of insulin could be used to treat glioblastoma, an aggressive, usually fatal form of brain cancer.
UGA scientists Franklin West and Qun Zhao have draw comparisons between sensory and cognitive relevance found in swine and those previously established in humans. Collaborators in the UGA Regenerative Bioscience Center, West and Zhao have discovered that pig brains are even better platforms than previously thought for the study of human neurological conditions such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
