More than 23,000 new cases of glioma are diagnosed in the United States every year.
Researchers in Houston are studying brain tumor susceptibility in families.
Researchers say the Gliogene study uncovered the first gene thought to be associated with familial glioma.
Dr. Melissa Bondy, professor of medicine and epidemiology and population sciences at Baylor College of Medicine and principal investigator of Gliogene, was on Houston’s Morning Show to talk about the study and their need for more patients to participate.
