Pursuing the Link Between Brain Cancer and Genes

In the United States, 23,720 people are diagnosed every year with a malignant primary brain tumor, known as a glioma. Of these cases, 5 to 10 percent are believed to run in families. Gliogene is the largest genetic study of glioma in families and aims to reveal more about genes that may contribute to brain tumors. If you and a blood-relative were both diagnosed with glioma, you may be eligible to participate in Gliogene.
