Repurposing antimalarial drugs for DIPG therapy

Diffuse intrinsic pontine gliomas (DIPGs) are rare but highly aggressive brain tumors found in the pons, an area of the brainstem that controls many of the body’s most vital functions such as breathing, blood pressure, and heart rate. Despite DIPG being the leading cause of pediatric death by ...

Pilot Trial to Evaluate the Feasibility and Clinical Utility of ...

Abstract: Outcomes in children with solid tumors that are already spread at the time of diagnosis or that do not respond with chemotherapy are generally poor and attempts to intensify treatment have not improved survival.  Personalized medicine is an emerging field of medicine that uses genetic information obtained from ...

Nuclear receptor NR5A2 as a therapeutic target for pediatric ...

Brain tumors are the predominant cause of cancer-associated deaths in children. For example, pediatric diffuse high-grade gliomas carry an extremely unfavourable prognosis with 70–90% of patients dying within 2 years of their initial diagnosis. Unfortunately, treatment for pediatric brain tumors has not radically changed over the past three decades. These ...

Exploring the brain-gut-microbiota axis to characterize and predict outcome in ...

Abstract Diffuse intrinsic pontine gliomas (DIPGs), represent a group of malignancies with rapid onset of devastating neurologic symptoms associated with the local extension, poor response to adjuvant therapy and a very poor prognosis. Radiotherapy has remained the only modality of treatment with proven transient symptomatic improvement and represents the mainstay ...

Enhancing response to radiation therapy by increasing tumor oxygenation in ...

The survival time for patients with pediatric high-grade glioma (pHGG) remains devastatingly short, in large part because pHGG tumors become resistant to radiation, the only available therapy with confirmed efficacy. This radioresistance is triggered by regions of hypoxia (low oxygen) that develop within the tumor as it grows. We found ...
