Brain tumors can be highly aggressive and debilitating for many patients and lead to an untimely death in just a few months. Unfortunately, due to the location of many brain tumors, therapy with ionizing radiation, chemotherapeutic agents and/or surgery has limited rewards. In addition, the probability of totally removing highly infiltrative tumors, particularly gliomas, is extremely low and rarely provides a cure. The need for directed targeting and ablation of tumors with minimal damage to… CONTINUE READING
