Cyto-megalovirus might speed brain-cancer growth
We had known about a link between cyto-megalovirus (CMV) and GBMs for a few years. This article gives an explanation of how the virus may activate a pathway that drives tumor growth. There is a drug available against the CMV - and it is in trials now in Europe. There is also a vaccine against this virus in trials. This opens the door not only for a treatment but the possibility of using a CMV vaccine to prevent the development of cancer (not only brain tumors)!
