The role of QPRT and NAD pathways in DIPG treatment ...

The proposed study will provide insights into a novel strategy to inhibit energy metabolism as a potential way to tackle treatment-resistant high-grade gliomas (HGGs) and diffuse intrinsic pontine gliomas (DIPGs), the most commonly fatal brain tumors of childhood. This work incorporates our unique resource of treatment-naïve and treatment-resistant ...

Investigating the role of DIPG-derived exosomes in tumor growth and ...

Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) is a highly aggressive and infiltrating brain tumor affecting children for which there is no effective treatment. Sequencing data have revealed  the existence of well defined subgroups of tumors based on age of onset, specific location in the brain, mutations and clinical outcome. Those ...

Determine the efficacy of BMP and MEK inhibitors with RT ...

We and others co-discovered the presence of activating mutations in ACVR1 in 25% of human DIPGs in 2014. Subsequently, my laboratory has developed a murine DIPG model incorporating R206H ACVR1 and observed that R206H ACVR1 significantly accelerates brainstem gliomagenesis. In addition, short-term treatment with a bone morphogenetic protein pathway inhibitor (...

Establishment of an International Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma Registry (DIPG ...

Brainstem gliomas account for up to 20% of all CNS tumors in children with a median age at presentation of 6-7 years.1  Diffuse intrinsic pontine gliomas (DIPG) comprise 80% of all brainstem gliomas. In North America and Europe, approximately 300 children develop brainstem gliomas per year. 2 Prognosis for patients with DIPGs remains ...

Validation of TAK228 as an effective drug for treating children ...

Validation of TAK228 as an Effective Drug for Treating Children Diagnosed with DIPG Diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG) is an untreatable childhood cancer.  DIPGs develop in pons making them surgically unresectable.  We and others have identified mutations in histone and their obligate partner mutations that seem to drive ...
