Who said Neurosurgeons cannot be cool. They discovered a new technique that will lead to new treatment options for those with brain cancer and give them hope for a better survival rate.
Neurosurgeons at Washington University in St Louis, discovered a technique using laser that breaks down the blood-brain barrier, which according to them is a natural “security system” that protects the brain from dangerous toxins in the blood, but also hampers the delivery of live-saving chemotherapy drugs.
Dr Eric Leuthardt, a professor of neurosurgery at Washington University in St Louis, said that this technique would lead to better pin-point ways to deliver effective drugs that will kill brain tumors from the inside.
There is hope to kill brain tumors in a more effective way.
