Elucidating the underlying mechanisms of radio resistance at diagnosis and ...

Backgound. Radiotherapy is still the mainstay of the treatment for DIPG. If the majority of children experience an improvement of their neurological condition following irradiation, this effect is not observed in all patients and is universally only transient. Determinants of the response to radiotherapy have yet to be defined. We ...

Establishment of an International Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma Registry (DIPG ...

Brainstem gliomas account for up to 20% of all CNS tumors in children with a median age at presentation of 6-7 years.1  Diffuse intrinsic pontine gliomas (DIPG) comprise 80% of all brainstem gliomas. In North America and Europe, approximately 300 children develop brainstem gliomas per year. 2 Prognosis for patients with DIPGs remains ...

Defining the molecular mechanisms of DIPG development and progression to ...

  Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Gliomas (DIPGs) are devastating pediatric brainstem tumors that lack effective treatment and are uniformly fatal. Patient studies have identified recurrent genetic lesions that drive the development of these tumors. Almost all DIPGs carry mutations in genes encoding either replication-dependent histone-H3 proteins (mostly HIST1H3B) or ...

Targeting DIPG through combining a super-activator (MCB-613) of steroid receptor ...

The objective of this application is to demonstrate that combining MCB-613, a small molecule stimulator of the oncogenic steroid receptor co-activator (SRC), with ionizing radiation would synergistically kill tumor cells of diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG) in vivo and significantly prolong survival times in patient tumor-derived orthotopic (intra-brain stem) xenograft (...

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 &...
