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 ...

Establishment and characterization of renewable tissue resources for dipg research

Background:  Due to their vital location, diffuse intrinsic pontine gliomas (DIPGs) are not treated surgically, and the lack of tumor material for research has greatly limited research efforts [1]. Recently, our group and others have used autopsy tissue, and rare biopsy tissues, for genetic analyses of DIPG to identify the ...

Investigating the role of DIPG-derived exosomes in tumor growth and ...

Diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG) is a devastating brain tumor which affects children and for which there is no effective treatment at the moment.  We and others have recently shown that DIPG is characterized by a remarkable degree of intratumoral heterogeneity and consists of distinct genetically and phenotypically heterogeneous ...

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 ...

Validation of TAK228 as an effective drug for treating children ...

Validation of TAK228 as an Effective Drug for Treating Children Diagnosed with DIPG Diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG) is an untreatable childhood cancer.  DIPGs develop in pons making them surgically unresectable.  We and others have identified mutations in histone and their obligate partner mutations that seem to drive ...
