Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma.

In tumors like DIPG, the diagnosis itself spells a death sentence for the child affected. For several decades, none of the altered fractionation radiotherapy or additional chemotherapy or targeted agents have shown a significant benefit over conventional radiotherapy. We propose amalgamation of several known and tested hypothesis in DIPG ...

Exploring Combination Therapy for DIPG: SGI-110 and GAA Vaccine

Diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG) are some of the deadliest childhood brain tumors. The immune system protects the body by recognizing targets on harmful cells, but tumor cells can “switch off” the targets and hide from the immune system. We have been using a vaccine that can target ...

Development of immunocompetent animal models for pediatric high-grade glioma and ...

Brain tumors are the leading cause of cancer-related death in children, with high-grade glioma (pHGG) and diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG) carrying the worst prognosis, with no chance of cure. Over the past years, the prognosis of other aggressive cancer types has improved thanks to scientific breakthroughs in the field ...

Testing cytotoxic effects and deciphering signalling pathways engaged by a ...

Glioblastoma (GBM) is the most common malignant brain tumor, being highly invasive and not responsive to standard treatment (surgery, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy). Moreover, a major determinant of the high lethality of GBM is the presence of self-renewing, tumorigenic glioblastoma stem-like cells (GSCs) that threateningly support the development and the progressive ...

Targeting hypoxia and mitochondrial metabolism with repurposing drugs as an ...

Abstract Diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG) is a rare and incurable brain tumor that arises in the brainstem of children predominantly between the ages of 6 and 9.  Unlike many brain tumors, DIPGs cannot be removed through surgery due to its sensitive location. The standard of care today remains radiation therapy (...
