Researchers at the UC Cancer Institute Make Progress in Brain Tumor Testing

Dr. El Mustapha Bhassi, research assistant professor at the University of Cincinnati, described a new blood test that can detect the presence of a certain type of brain tumor called a Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM). Being able to detect GBM cells through the blood stream will allow for patients to receive more conclusive test results sooner after treatment. An early diagnosis could mean living with cancer, rather than dying from it, says Dr. Bhassi. The blood test will be available for patients through a clinical trial next year.
