Developing Novel Combination theraputic approaches for DIPG targeting Polo-like Kinase 1

Whole genome sequencing on DIPG biopsy and autopsy samples have identified specific mutations in Histone H3, ACVRI, TP53 and ATRX causing heterochromatin silencing, genetic instability and alterations in DNA damage response pathways. Using a unique panel of patient derived DIPG cultures, we have further examined the molecular profile of DIPG ...

Targeting DIPGs in vivo in Intra-brain Stem Xenograft Mouse Models ...

The objective of this application is to examine if combining ionizing radiation with an oncolytic virus SVV-001 would lead to synergistically enhanced tumor cell killing and significantly improve therapeutic efficacy in vivo in patient tumor-derived intra-brainstem xenograft mouse models of diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG). DIPG is the most lethal ...

Methionine deprivation as a therapeutic strategy for diffuse intrinsic pontine ...

After decades of clinical trials, no effective treatment has yet been found for DIPG. While we now know a lot about the genetics of this disease, this has unfortunately not thus far led to improved survival for children with DIPG. To better understand ...

Evaluating TORC1/2 kinase inhibition in murine and nonhuman primate (NHP) ...

Scientific Merit: New therapies are desperately needed for children with DIPG. Our group participated in recent collaborative efforts that led to identification of panobinostat as an active agent in DIPG. However, additional agents are likely required in combination with panobinostat to improve long-term survival for these children. We identified mutations ...

Allele-specific antisense therapy for DIPG

Diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG) mainly affects very young children and has the highest mortality of all pediatric solid tumors. The median survival is only 9 months, with most patients dying within 2 years after the initial diagnosis. The clinical management of DIPG is a major challenge in pediatric neuro-oncology. The tumor'...
