Nanoparticle penetration of brain tumors can be limited due to protective barriers around the brain and the tumor. Access to invasive tumors that have spread throughout the brain is even more challenging. Nanoparticles with a...

A brain tumor is a development of abnormal cells in the tissues of the brain. Brain tumors can be benign, without any cancer cells, or malignant, with cancer cells that grow swiftly. Some are primary brain tumors, which begin in the brain. Brain tumors can cause many symptoms. Some of the most common are: Headaches, usually in the morning; Nausea and vomiting; Changes in your ability to talk, hear, or see; Problems with balance or strolling; Problems with believing or memory; Feeling drowsy or weak; Changes in your state of mind or habits; Seizures. Doctors diagnose brain tumors by doing a neurologic examination and tests including an MRI, CT check, and biopsy. Targeted therapy uses drugs or other substances that attack cancer cells with less damage to normal cells. There are many types of brain tumors. Brain tumors may be slow-growing, not likely to spread, and not cancer. Both type of brain tumors can cause significant issues by pushing on and harmful normal brain tissue. In addition to its location, the way a tumor grows can affect the symptoms you have. A tumor might affect the brain in 1 or more ways. There are several types of brain tumors with many different symptoms, treatments, and end results. Contact your health care provider if you have any inquiries about your symptoms and if they could be a sign of a brain tumor. A type of brain tumor called a high-grade glioma, or malignant brain tumor, is among the hardest tumors to treat. Specific types of stem cell have a tendency to move towards the tumor cells anywhere they are in the brain. These CAR-T cells will recognize a molecular marker on the surface of glioma cancer stem cells and kill the tumors. Immune cells from the patient's own body immune system are subjected to fragments of these cancer cell proteins in the lab.
