new research on NF2 from UK
« on: March 24, 2008, 02:08:31 pm »
I have just seen this article going through the news. I thought it should be of interest to a lot of people.

Right side AN (6x3x3 cm) removed in 1988 by Drs. Benjamin & Cohen at NYU (16 hrs); nerves involved III - XII.
Regrowth at the brainstem 2.5 cm removed by Dr.Shahinian in 4 hrs at SBI (hopefully, this time forever); nerves involved IV - X with VIII missing. No facial or swallowing issues.

This is great news!  Dr. Rhoton mentioned at the last symposium in Philly about the possibility of curing these tumors with stem cell therapy.  Awsome article, thanks.
