TGen-Barrow study shows drug penetration of glioblastoma

PHOENIX, Ariz. — May 24, 2018 — In a first-of-its-kind clinical trial, a drug called AZD1775 was shown to penetrate deadly glioblastoma brain cancer cells, according to a study conducted at Barrow Neurological Institute and initiated by the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen).

Glioblastoma catapulted into the public spotlight in recent months after Arizona’s U.S. Sen. John McCain was diagnosed with this aggressive cancer, which has a median survival time of just 12-16 months.
