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. Gliogene is the largest genetic study of glioma in families and aims to reveal more about genes that may contribute to brain tumors. Only 5-10 percent of gliomas may be related to inherited genes, but these cases can be difficult for affected families. If you and a blood-relative have both been diagnosed with glioma, you may be eligible to participate in Gliogene.
