Clinical follow-up survey of the Norwegian material of paediatric patients who received therapy for medulloblastoma and CNS-PNET from 1974 - 2013 with a focus on quality of life, education, work, family and children, delayed effects of tumour disease and treatment, endocrine evaluation, existence of auditory neuropathy, and neuropsychological testing.

This study is to evaluate which cognitive-linguistic symptoms are most commonly experienced following brain tumor treatment. Cognitive surveys will be administered after treatment of prima...
The purpose of this study is to culture primary human brain tumor cells with the specific aims of: 1. Develop primary cultures from human brain tumor surgical specimens 2. Dete...
In neurosurgery, brain tumor patients show increased levels of lactate at the beginning of surgery. This has been related to malignancy. Ki-67 is a cell proliferation index used as a marke...
The purpose of this research study is to collect and store brain tumor tissue samples for future research. The samples will become part of the University of Florida Brain Tumor Tissue Bank...
The study will compare two different size MRI's of a brain tumor.
This paper explicates the impact of tumor capillary permeability for glioma WHO grades 2 to 4 on brain-penetrant drug entry and distribution within the tumor and the brain adjacent to tumor (leading e...
Intraoperative ultrasound (iUS) imaging is commonly used to support brain tumor operation. The tumor segmentation in the iUS images is a difficult task and still under improvement because of the low s...
Cognitive investigations in brain tumor patients have mostly explored episodic memory without differentiating between encoding, storage, and retrieval deficits. The aim of this study is to offer insig...
Sigma-1 receptors (Sig1R) are highly expressed in various human cancer cells and hence imaging of this target with positron emission tomography (PET) can contribute to a better understanding of tumor ...
Advances in radiation treatment (RT), specifically volumetric planning with detailed dose and volumetric data for specific brain structures, have provided new opportunities to study neurobehavioral ou...
Tissue NECROSIS in any area of the brain, including the CEREBRAL HEMISPHERES, the CEREBELLUM, and the BRAIN STEM. Brain infarction is the result of a cascade of events initiated by inadequate blood flow through the brain that is followed by HYPOXIA and HYPOGLYCEMIA in brain tissue. Damage may be temporary, permanent, selective or pan-necrosis.
Localized reduction of blood flow to brain tissue due to arterial obstruction or systemic hypoperfusion. This frequently occurs in conjunction with brain hypoxia (HYPOXIA, BRAIN). Prolonged ischemia is associated with BRAIN INFARCTION.
Antineoplastic agent especially effective against malignant brain tumors. The resistance which brain tumor cells acquire to the initial effectiveness of this drug can be partially overcome by the simultaneous use of membrane-modifying agents such as reserpine, calcium antagonists such as nicardipine or verapamil, or the calmodulin inhibitor, trifluoperazine. The drug has also been used in combination with other antineoplastic agents or with radiotherapy for the treatment of various neoplasms.
Multi-channel hearing devices typically used for patients who have tumors on the COCHLEAR NERVE and are unable to benefit from COCHLEAR IMPLANTS after tumor surgery that severs the cochlear nerve. The device electrically stimulates the nerves of cochlea nucleus in the BRAIN STEM rather than the inner ear as in cochlear implants.
Bleeding within the brain as a result of penetrating and nonpenetrating CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA. Traumatically induced hemorrhages may occur in any area of the brain, including the CEREBRUM; BRAIN STEM (see BRAIN STEM HEMORRHAGE, TRAUMATIC); and CEREBELLUM.
