The fatty acid composition of human gliomas differs from that found in nonmalignant brain tissue

  title={The fatty acid composition of human gliomas differs from that found in nonmalignant brain tissue},
  author={Douglas D. Martin and Michael E. C. Robbins and Arthur A. Spector and B.-Chen Wen and David H. Hussey},
To compare the fatty acid composition of tumor tissue from glioma patients with that of normal brain tissue, tissue samples were obtained from 13 glioma patients and from 3 nonmalignant patients. Following lipid extraction, total fatty acid composition was measured using gas-liquid chromatography. Samples were further separated into phospholipids and neutral lipids. Representative samples were then separated into phospholipid classes by thin-layer chromatography and the fatty acid composition… CONTINUE READING
