TARGETING NEURONAL ACTIVITY-REGULATED DIPG INFILTRATION (2017)

DIPG is characteristically infiltrative (i.e. diffuse and intrinsic), and this infiltrative/invasive behavior is destructive both in the brainstem and in other areas of the central nervous system to which DIPG spreads during the course of the disease. In work previously funded by the Cure Starts Now and the ...

MRI Guided Focused Ultrasound: Targeted Drug Delivery in Diffuse Intrinsic ...

Hypothesis & Anticipated Results Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma, (DIPG) is a fatal cancer and the leading cause of death from  brain tumours in young children. Despite numerous existing chemotherapeutic agents and  promising new molecular therapies, one overriding challenge remains: to overcome the blood  brain barrier (BBB) and ...

TARGETING TOP3A-AMPLIFIED DIPG CELLS BY SIRTUIN INHIBITION

Diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG) is a malignant brainstem tumour arising in children representing a major unmet clinical need, with a 2-year survival rate close to zero. With chemotherapy ineffective and surgical intervention not possible, new therapeutic approaches are urgently required based upon the unique biological mechanisms driving DIPG tumorigenesis. ...

targeted therapy and stem cell therapy for DIPG

BACKGROUND: Diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG) is the leading cause of brain cancer associated deaths in children despite constituting only 10-15% of childhood brain tumours.  Approximately 300 children per year with a median age of 6-7 years will be diagnosed with DIPG in the US [about 20 per year in Australia]. &...

Mitochondrial DNA alterations and their potential as a novel therapeutic ...

Brain tumors are the leading cause of cancer-related death in childhood. Diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG) arises in the pons of the brainstem and is universally fatal, comprising nearly 15% of all pediatric brain tumors.1 Despite international endeavors to improve outcome, DIPGs show poor response to conventional radiation and chemotherapeutic strategies ...
