Kind of amazing that with all our science, they have practically no ability to treat it?
Unless there's somethign I'm missing.

Perhaps you are missing something... like an explanation of what you looked into.
The treatment kind of "depends". But like lots of things, there is lots of research, lots of treatments, but an actual cure is not yet there yet. A search at http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi brought up over 1000 references.
The same can be said for pancreatic cancer.

Well, there are any number of things that, "with all our science", we can't fix, that we can only deal with on a palliative basis--diabetes, multiple sclerosis, arthritis, various disorders like lupus and psoriasis, and of course many different kinds of incurable cancers.
The doctor ain't God no more. :(

The real problem is that the glia cells are the ones that sort of enforce the blood brain barrier and provide the energy to the nuerons, so they are hard to effect and if you toxify them, well you die.

Of course, glioma is entirely dependent on your star sign.
If you are an aquarius - watch out!
Cancers and Leos can relax.
