Epigenetic Targeted Therapy and Resistance in AT/RT

Pediatric rhabdoid tumor in the brain, atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumor (AT/RT), is a highly malignant brain tumor that has a very poor prognosis despite aggressive treatment. The development of new, effective therapeutic approaches for AT/RT has been hindered by a lack of specific therapeutic targets. It is necessary ...

A novel CRISPR/Cas9 approach to target the EWS-FLI1 fusion ...

Ewing’s sarcoma (EWS) is a devastating pediatric cancer of bone and soft tissues where the treatments used are typically very toxic, resulting in profound morbidities. Furthermore, these intense and non-specific treatments often lead to secondary tumors later in life. Thus, a less toxic and more specific treatment is ...

The current situation of childhood brain tumor long-term survivors in ...

Central nervous system tumors, represent the highest mortality rate of all childhood malignancies, Nevertheless, the number of survivors of pediatric Brain tumors continues to increase. Gradually improving survival rates and a growing population of long-term survivors have expanded the focus of research, Increased attention has been given to late ...

Interaction of Immune System with Oncolytic Measles Virus Therapy of ...

Medulloblastoma (MB) is the most common malignant brain tumor in children. The Group 3 MB patients have the worst prognosis and dismal 5-year survival rate among the four distinct subtypes of MB: WNT, SHH, Group 3 and Group 4 tumors. Sadly, MB survivors face life-long debilitating neurocognitive side effects from craniospinal radiation that ...

Targeting Glycolysis for Inhibition of Tumor Growth in Pediatric Brain ...

Pediatric brain tumors have limited responses to conventional therapeutic option and high mortality rates. Novel approaches to treat these and other forms of cancer involve targeting metabolic mechanisms of cancer cells from which they derive energy. These include aerobic glycolysis or the Warburg effect; named after Otto Warburg who first ...
