New ultrasound method shows promise in brain cancer


A study published in Science Translational Medicine found that patients with brain cancer who underwent magnetic resonance-guided focused ultrasound, a new ultrasound technique that allows the antibody drug Herceptin to shrink tumors by crossing the blood-brain barrier, did not experience any major adverse effects after the procedure. "Herceptin is also a huge compound, so if we can [get it in] we can pretty safely assume that we can get other compounds that are as large, or smaller, into the brain with focused ultrasound as well," said lead study author Dr. Nir Lipsman.
