MRI-based sequences can provide non-invasive quantification of intratumoral 2-hydroxyglutarate (2HG) distribution and tumor cellularity in human gliomas and help guide the development of n...
This drug is being developed to treat a type of brain cancer, glioma. This study was developed to evaluate the safety, time to disease progression and survival rates after treatment.
Currently, treatment with a specific anti-epileptic drug mainly depends on the physicians' preference, as there are no studiessupporting the use of one specific anticonvulsant in glioma pa...
This pilot study will include grade II and III glioma patients treated with SSRIs during a 3 month study period. Changes in cognition and evaluation of psychosocial factors from baseline t...
Phase IIa Safety and Light Dose-Escalation Study in Patients With Primary or Recurrent/High-Grade Glioma Using the Litx™ System to Confirm the Zone of Tumor Destruction During the Intraoperative Treatment of Glioma
The pupose of this study is to demonstrate the safety of the Litx™ therapy and confirm the zone of tumor destruction with escalated light doses following intraoperative treatment of prim...
Twenty-five single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are associated with glioma risk. We hypothesized that the inclusion of these 25 SNPs with age at diagnosis and sex could predict risk of glioma as we...
Glioma susceptibility is inversely related to a history of allergies and atopy. Lung allergies are associated with 30% lower glioma susceptibility, compared to no lung allergies. Asthma and eczema als...
Gliomas are the most common malignant primary brain tumors with poor prognosis. We attempted to explore the role of CYP17A1 in glioma progression. We demonstrated that the expression of CYP17A1 was si...
This study aims to investigate the utility of F-FET PET in surgical decision making in suspected glioma. A retrospective review of patients undergoing F-FET PET was performed. Previously published thr...
Interleukin 17 (IL-17), as a pro-inflammatory cytokine, is up-regulated in the sera and tumor tissues of glioma patients; however the effects of IL-17 on glioma proliferation and migration remain uncl...
An imaging technique that combines a POSITRON-EMISSION TOMOGRAPHY (PET) scanner and a CT X RAY scanner. This establishes a precise anatomic localization in the same session.
A non-invasive method that uses a CT scanner for capturing images of blood vessels and tissues. A CONTRAST MATERIAL is injected, which helps produce detailed images that aid in diagnosing VASCULAR DISEASES.
A malignant BRAINSTEM neoplasm of the PONS. They are more commonly found in children than adults.
A BRAIN-specific hyalectin that may play a role in terminally differentiating NEURONS. It is found highly overexpressed in primary BRAIN TUMORS and in experimental models of GLIOMA.
Rare, slow-growing, benign intraventricular tumors, often asymptomatic and discovered incidentally. The tumors are classified histologically as ependymomas and demonstrate a proliferation of subependymal fibrillary astrocytes among the ependymal tumor cells.
