US researchers identified expression of NY-ESO-1 protein in 108 of 110 meningioma tissue samples (Sept 2013)

This US research project is a bit technical but it’s worth knowing about

“Meningiomas: US researchers have identified expression of the NY-ESO-1 protein in 108 of 110 meningioma tissue samples and believe this could be a potentially significant target, particularly because of a previously-unrelated clinical trial at the National Cancer Institute designed to activate the immune system of patients with other types of tumours that express the protein.”
