05/24/18 Heat shock protein peptide complex-96 vaccination for newly diagnosed glioblastoma: a phase I, single-arm trial.        

 Pretty good results, but it is in a small trial.   

05/24/18 Patterns of care and outcomes of chemoradiation versus radiation alone for MGMT promoter unmethylated glioblastoma.        

 This study says that for glioblastoma patients with unmethylated MGMT, adding Temodar to radiation does not improve survival or progression free survival.    This is a retrospective study that does not control for other factors, but it is interesting. It opens the door for experimenting with other treatments for newly diagnosed MGMT unmethylated patients, such as perhaps substituting Val-083 instead of Temodar.

05/13/18 Potent antitumor efficacy of anti-GD2 CAR T cells in H3-K27M+ diffuse midline gliomas        

 This is only in lab rats, but looks very promising.  They did note that the treatments caused death because of too much swelling in a small number of the rats - that will have to be watched and treated early when they start in humans, but this has the potential to be a huge breakthrough.

05/13/18 When did the glioblastoma start growing, and how much time can be gained from surgical resection? A model based on the pattern of glioblastoma growth in vivo.        

 Fascinating. We get this question all of the time. The answer is it takes about a year for the gbm to grow to the size where it causes symptoms and you notice it.   And there is a big gain from removing 99% of the tumor compared to 95%.  If they only remove 50% of the tumor, it will grow back before the surgery heals.

05/03/18 Durham firm with innovative brain cancer treatment lights up $642K equity round        

 I did not see research results but the methodology looks very interesting
