Blood/Spinal Fluid (Liquid) Biopsies: An innovative non-invasive way to assess brain tumor response to therapy during treatment

Doctors have been researching non-invasive options to assess how brain tumors, especially in children, respond to therapy.  In particular, doctors can closely follow how treatment impacts on key genetic changes that drive tumor growth. The traditional approach was to obtain tissue biopsies to assess tumor response.  However, this approach is…
