Brain cancer is one of the most aggressive and difficult-to-treat malignancies. Moreover, in the almost 50 years since the start of the war on cancer, the prospects for people who develop brain cancer have improved much more slowly than those of individuals with other types of cancer. Despite a lack of progress in the clinic, research on this group of conditions is advancing steadily, and treatments with the potential to transform the field are on the horizon.
