New Way to Block Brain Cancer
Cancer has been a threat widespread among humans since a long time and the threat is growing as a menace. The fluids present within the body are responsible for several mechanisms. However, in case of a type of brain cancer, glioblastoma, the interstitial fluid plays an important role in spreading the cancer. This fluid flows with a much higher pressure, responsible for its fast flow and thereby, forcing cancer cells to spread. Earlier methods of curing glioblastoma included inserting a drug into the tumor which increased the flow of the fluid and aggravated the condition. But a recent study published in Scientific Reports, discusses that a new drug AMD3100 which uses a new therapy known as convection enhanced therapy that can slow down the flow of the interstitial fluid and thereby reduce the spread of cancer. Researchers are yet to explore more into the above mentioned therapy and find its effectiveness.
