Significant advances in the design and understanding of the materials and systems of 1-100 nm have provided unprecedented tools to probe, diagnose, and treat diseases at the molecular level with greater efficiency and accuracy. In particular, optical and chemical properties of nanomaterials are being exploited to improve the effectiveness of neuro-oncological and neurosurgical interventions. Modern nanotechnology-driven clinical applications may have significant impact on management of brain tumors.

Gliomas encompass a wide spectrum of various histopathological entities with different management strategies and associated prognoses. In many cases, initial biopsy of the brain lesion is required, si...
We present a comprehensive review of Neuroendocrine Tumors (NET) and the current and developing imaging and therapeutic modalities for NET with emphasis on Nuclear Medicine modalities. Subsequently, n...
Gliomas are the most common type of brain cancer in the pediatric patients, constituting about 50% of all childhood intracranial tumors. This is a highly heterogeneous group, varying from the benign W...
In cases of recurrent gliomas, the treatment options are limited and not yet standardized. Choices usually include re-operation, systemic chemotherapy, salvage re-irradiation, and supportive care, whi...
Gliomas are the most common primary central nervous system (CNS) neoplasms in children and adolescents and are thought to arise from their glial progenitors or stem cells. Although the exact cells of ...
RATIONALE: Patients with gliomas may be at risk for developing blood clots. Learning about the risk factors for developing blood clots may help doctors plan better treatment for gliomas. ...
The objective of this study is to determine response rates (partial and complete responses) to nivolumab of recurrent or progressive IDH mutant high-grade gliomas with prior exposure to al...
Gliomas, especially high grade gliomas and diffuse low grade gliomas, are characterized by their infiltrative nature. Recently, a new conception of supratotal resection has been proposed. ...
To evaluate the efficacy of multi-modality magnetic resonance quantitative parameters in evaluating the treatment effects of high-grade gliomas, and to provide new biomarkers for the estab...
18F-Fluorothymidine is a recently developed PET tracer to image tumor cell proliferation. Very few data report an interest of using such a tracer for cerebral malignant tumor management. I...
