Focus at Four: New A&M research suggests biological clock affects brain cancer treatment

New research from the Texas A&M Health Science Center suggests that certain devastating brain cancers could benefit from treatments related to the body's biological clock.


"That means that giving treatments, like chemotherapy and radiation, at certain times a day, could make a difference in the prognosis," said David Earnest, the TAMU HSC and College of Medicine scientist who co-authrored the study.

"We knew it helped in other cancers, like breast cancer, but this is the first time we've seen the difference in this difficult-to-treat brain cancer," Earnest said.
