Targeting Glycolysis for Inhibition of Tumor Growth in Pediatric Brain ...

Pediatric brain tumors have limited responses to conventional therapeutic option and high mortality rates. Novel approaches to treat these and other forms of cancer involve targeting metabolic mechanisms of cancer cells from which they derive energy. These include aerobic glycolysis or the Warburg effect; named after Otto Warburg who first ...

Multi-modal Epigenetic Pt(IV) Prodrugs for Paediatric High Grade Gliomas

Diffuse intrinsic pontine gliomas (DIPG) are highly aggressive cancers - DIPG has a survival rate of 1% at 5 years. Platinum(II) anti-cancer drugs (e.g. carboplatin) are used in combination with sodium valproate to treat DIPG clinically, with the intact blood brain barrier being effectively bypassed by convection enhanced delivery. We ...

Targeting a novel mitochondrial apoptotic pathway in Neuroblastoma

Mitochondria are subcellular, double-membrane organelles. From a functional point of view they can be considered as hubs where cellular energy metabolism and cell death signalling converge and are finely regulated. Functional mitochondria are essential for cancer cells. Many of the agents with anti-cancer activity that act on Mitochondria (Mi), hold ...

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 ...

MiR181 as novel biomarkers in precision medicine of Bile Duct ...

Bile Tract Cancers (BTC) include cholangiocarcinoma (CCA) and gallbladder cancer (GBC) and their incidence is increasing worldwide [1, 2] . Lack of effective radical treatments highlights the need for a better understanding of BTC biology and mechanisms of response to treatment [1, 2]. Eighty-percent of BTC patients present at an advanced stage, when treatment options ...
