Goldman, the senior author of the study and the co-director of the URMC Center for Translational Neuromedicine said in a statement released this week, “This study identifies a core set of genes and pathways that are deregulated during both the early and late stages of tumor progression. By virtue of their marked difference from normal cells, these genes appear to comprise a promising set of targets for therapeutic intervention.”

Brain tumors, also known as gliomas, originate from these glial cells. They progress in severity as time passes and ultimately turn into glioblastomas, which are highly invasive tumors that are difficult to treat making them almost always fatal. Presently, these glioblastomas are treated with a combination of surgery, radiation and chemotherapy. Although, these procedures do delay the cancer’s progression, they ultimately prove to be ineffective at fighting the tumor. However, this new study, published in the journal Cell Reports, could change this.

In the study, researchers took human tissue samples that represented the three initial sta
