Targeting a novel mitochondrial apoptotic pathway in Neuroblastoma

Mitochondria are subcellular, double-membrane organelles. From a functional point of view they can be considered as hubs where cellular energy metabolism and cell death signalling converge and are finely regulated. Functional mitochondria are essential for cancer cells. Many of the agents with anti-cancer activity that act on Mitochondria (Mi), hold ...

Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma.

In tumors like DIPG, the diagnosis itself spells a death sentence for the child affected. For several decades, none of the altered fractionation radiotherapy or additional chemotherapy or targeted agents have shown a significant benefit over conventional radiotherapy. We propose amalgamation of several known and tested hypothesis in DIPG ...

MiR181 as novel biomarkers in precision medicine of Bile Duct ...

Bile Tract Cancers (BTC) include cholangiocarcinoma (CCA) and gallbladder cancer (GBC) and their incidence is increasing worldwide [1, 2] . Lack of effective radical treatments highlights the need for a better understanding of BTC biology and mechanisms of response to treatment [1, 2]. Eighty-percent of BTC patients present at an advanced stage, when treatment options ...

CHARACTERIZATION OF THE ROLE OF L3MBTL3 IN MEDULLOBLASTOMA

LAY ABSTRACT: Millions of cells are formed every day in the developing brain of children. Medulloblastoma, a pediatric tumor, occurs when the proliferation of cells in the cerebellum (a lower part of the brain) becomes uncontrolled. The Notch pathway is a key mechanism that governs cell proliferation in many biological ...

Therapeutic targeting of NTRK2 rearrangements in diffuse midline glioma

Lay Summary   Diffuse midline glioma (DMG) is a malignant brain tumour arising in children representing a major unmet clinical need, with a 2-year survival rate close to zero. We recently discovered a proportion of children with DMG to have small genetic alterations in a gene called NTRK2. Although not ...
