Promising Strategy to Fight the Most Deadly Brain Tumor in Children
Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago

A study published in Nature Communications found that an inhibitor of an enzyme called ACVR1 slows tumor growth and increases survival in an animal model of diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG) – the most deadly brain tumor in children. Currently, there are no approved drugs for treating DIPG. This research opens the door to a promising new treatment strategy.
