Researchers in Manchester find genetic key to preventing spine tumors
Date:2/19/2013

k, doctors did not know that inherited spinal meningiomas have a completely different cause to other tumours affecting the brain and spine.

"The next step is to develop a screening programme to assess the risk of developing spinal tumours for individuals in affected families, and to investigate possible treatments to prevent the spinal tumours from growing."

Professor Richard Marias, Director of Cancer Research UK's Paterson Institute at The University of Manchester, said "This research highlights the complexity of tumour diagnosis. Such detailed molecular characterisation underpins current thoughts about how meningioma and cancer will be managed in the future and is at the heart of the personalised medicine approach."

Just over two people in every 100,000 develop meningiomas in the head and spine, with twice as many women as men diagnosed with the condition.
