Mark Malkin Discusses Using Viruses to Treat Brain Cancer

Mark G. Malkin, M.D., professor of Neurology at the Virginia Commonwealth University, discusses the possibility of using viruses to treat glioblastoma.
Two early-phase studies showed survival benefit for this subset of patients with brain cancer when viruses were used to deliver a gene of interest to the tumor. The next logical step, Malkin says, is to extend these trials to a larger cohort of patients.
