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.

This review summarizes recent advances in the molecular classification of adult gliomas.
The present review introduces recent progress in eliciting the role of mutant isocitrate dehydrogenase (IDH) in gliomas, especially regarding its mode of action as a modulator of antitumor immune resp...
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 ...
Diet and fluid management can reduce mortality, serious comorbidities, and debilitating symptoms in patients on hemodialysis, but restrictions may also be a major burden, and nonadherence remains high...
Diffuse gliomas comprise the bulk of "brain cancer" in adults. The recent update to the 4th edition of the World Health Organization's classification of tumors of the central nervous system reflects a...
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...
Participation of employees with management as a labor-management team, in decisions pertaining to the operational activities of the organization or industry.
The management of all procurement, distribution, and storage of equipment and supplies, as well as logistics management including laundry, processing of reusables, etc.
Business management of medical and dental practices that may include capital financing, utilization management, and arrangement of capitation agreements with other parties.
Management review designed to evaluate efficiency and to identify areas in need of management improvement within the institution in order to ensure effectiveness in meeting organizational goals.
Theoretical approach to social processes with a fundamental concern with power phenomena. There is a focus on the analysis of culture, the influence of Foucault, and the development of feminist perspectives.
According to the American Brain Tumor Association, just over 24,000 patients will be diagnosed with a primary malignant brain tumour during 2012 in the US alone. Some 80% of primary malignant brain tumours are gliomas, a broad term which includes all tum...
