Objective: Fluorescence-guided surgery with 5-aminolevulinic acid (5-ALA) enables more complete resections of contrast-enhancing malignant gliomas in adults. Aquaporins (AQP) are a family of membrane proteins that provide a major pathway for water transport in mammals. Prior studies have suggested that[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
