Neuro Oncology and Stem Cell Therapies

Neuro oncology deals with brain and spinal tumors. Gliomas are the important causes of tumors. Brain tumors are responsible for severe cognitive and physical disability and accounts for high malignancy rates. Tumors can also cause brain lesions or spinal lesions. Lesions are damaged tissues caused by injury, infection or exposure to certain chemicals.  Treatment of tumors depends on the type, location and size of the tumors as well as the age of patients. Tumors can be treated surgically or by chemotherapy or radiotherapy.  Stem Cells can be used in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases. The transplantation of embryonic neurons or stem cells that offers potential treatment strategy for neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson's diseaseHuntington's disease (HD), and Alzheimer's disease.
