New brain tumor treatments and regenerative medicine

Terence (Terry) C. Burns, M.D., Ph.D., a neurosurgeon at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, discusses regenerative therapies and new cutting-edge research for the treatment of brain cancer.

Regenerative medicine is the effort to maintain the critical functions of the brain. One of these strategies developed at Mayo Clinic helps promote the regeneration of the immune response against tumors.

Experimental programs at Mayo Clinic help reenergize the immune response. This groundbreaking research is available to our patients.

Mayo Clinic researchers are constantly working to improve the outcomes and efficacy of surgery on brain tumors. Other research includes trying to reduce radiation necrosis, which is the area of active brain injury from radiation.

Metabolic diagnoses and cell therapies are being developed at Mayo Clinic as well. By pushing forward on the forefront of research, Mayo Clinic brings the latest in medical discovery to patients faster.
