For the first time, Johns Hopkins researchers, including Dr. Jordan Green, used a compound-filled biodegradable nanoparticle gene therapy along with an intercranial delivery system to kill brain cancer cells in animals and lengthen their survival. This new strategy shows great promise in treating brain cancers, such as glioma.
