The newest and most promising therapies for challenging cancers are adopting molecular-biology strategies. Brain tumors are especially problematic because of their location impedes patient function and presents formidable barriers to surgical treatments. But new molecular approaches show promise. A series of new techniques from viruses genetically trained to attack the tumor, to genetic modifications of immune cells, to new types of monoclonal antibodies represent a few of the new tricks researchers are now deploying in the fight against these deadly conditions. Dr. Duane Mitchell is a Professor at the University of Florida. He is a neurosurgeon that is discovering and refining the leading edge of next generation therapies. In today’s podcast, he shares his expertise in explaining the new types of technologies and the potential promise they may bring.
