A team of researchers from Brigham & Women’s HospitalMass. Institute of Technology and Mass. General Hospital demonstrated that localizing the delivery of NAMPT inhibitors can extend survival in a mouse model of glioma, according to a paper published this week in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

The scientists created a test to check for a mutation linked to glioma and implanted microparticles that slowly elute drug over the course of several days or even weeks to treat the brain cancer.
