Targeting Group 4 medulloblastoma via Musashi1-cell cycle inhibition

Despite recent progress in medulloblastoma treatment, two main problems remain. High risk groups 3 and 4 medulloblastoma patients still show a high rate of mortality. Even in the case of success, patients are frequently left with devastating neurocognitive and other sequelae. Therefore, more effective and less aggressive therapies are still in demand. ...

Developing novel combination therapies for diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma

This project will develop novel combination therapies for the most aggressive childhood cancer, diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG). Our team performed a comprehensive high-throughput drug screen, testing 3,570 drugs for their ability to prevent DIPG cell growth and found ACT001 to be one of the most effective drugs tested. ACT001 is ...

OLIG2 Targeting in DIPG using the novel small molecular inhibitor ...

Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) is an incurable brain stem glioma predominantly arising in young children, better options to treat this aggressive disease are urgently needed. Oligodendrocyte transcription factor 2 (OLIG2) is mostly expressed in restricted domains of the brain and spinal cord ventricular zone which give rise to oligodendrocytes and ...

INNOVATIVE MODELS OF THE BRAIN MICROENVIRONMENT TO IDENTIFY NEW TREATMENTS ...

Brain tumors are the leading cause of disease related mortality in children. Survival rates for children diagnosed with medulloblastoma (MB), the most common malignant pediatric brain tumor, have stagnated for decades. Despite aggressive treatment approaches, a significant proportion of patients&...

Modulation of intra-tumor hypoxia to sensitize DIPG irradiation and initiate ...

Malignant gliomas in specific region like brain pons are not curable as they cannot be surgically resected and are only transiently benefiting from local irradiation and in some cases from targeted therapies. These aggressive brain tumors are molecularly well known as they are characterized by a driver mutation. This abnormality ...
