Use of Selective Cyclooxygenase-2 Inhibitors, Other Analgesics, and Risk of Glioma.
 

Author(s): Corinna Seliger, Christoph R Meier, Claudia Becker, Susan S Jick, Ulrich Bogdahn, Peter Hau, Michael F Leitzmann

Journal:

 

Selective cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) inhibitors are analgesic, antipyretic, and anti-inflammatory drugs. They have been found to inhibit the development of glioma in laboratory investigations. Whether these drugs reduce the risk of glioma incidence in humans is unknown.

An Overview of Alternating Electric Fields Therapy (NovoTTF Therapy) for the Treatment of Malignant Glioma.
 

Author(s): Kenneth D Swanson, Edwin Lok, Eric T Wong

Journal: Curr Neurol Neurosci Rep. 2016 Jan;16(1):8.

 

As with many cancer treatments, tumor treating fields (TTFields) target rapidly dividing tumor cells. During mitosis, TTFields-exposed cells exhibit uncontrolled membrane blebbing at the onset of anaphase, resulting in aberrant mitotic exit. Based on these criteria, at least two protein ...
