study of radiotherapy and concurrent bevacizumab temozolamide followed by bevacizumab. ...

Five-year overall survival in children with high-grade glioma (HGG) and diffuse, intrinsic brainstem glioma (DIPG) are  approximately 25% and 10%, respectively1-3.  Achieving cure for all children with HGG and DIPG  remains a major goal of pediatric neuro-oncology. DIPGs are infiltrative gliomas, and have typically been found to be &...

EPIGENETIC ALTERATIONS AS THERAPEUTIC TARGETS IN PEDIATRIC BRAIN TUMORS

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 (...

POLYAMINE PATHWAY METABOLISM AS A NOVEL THERAPEUTIC OPTION FOR DIFFUSE ...

Diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG) is the most aggressive of all childhood cancers. Standard treatment with radiotherapy is only palliative and chemotherapy has been found ineffective. Polyamines are organic compounds essential for key functions of living cells. They can be made by human cells but also generated from intestinal microorganisms ...

Targeting neuronal activity-regulated DIPG infiltration (2015)

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 ...

Credentialing an improved DIPG mouse model

DIPG is a rare type of childhood brain cancer that is currently incurable. One barrier for progress against DIPG is the development of predictive models, i.e. models in which observations regarding the evaluation of new therapies will accurately predict observations in clinical trials for children with DIPG.   ...
