Role of Fibirnogen Like Protein 2 as Aprognostic Factor in High Grade Glioma

2019-10-08 08:47:30 | BioPortfolio


The study population was selected from high grade glioma pateints attending the Department of Clinical Oncology, Assiut University hospital during the period from December 2018 to September 2020, we analyzed human high grade gliomas paraffin block for FLG2 expression


Glioblastoma is the most common malignant primary brain tumor in adults, and despite aggressive treatment, it is incurable Patient prognosis differs considerably within the different World Health Organization (WHO) grades, poorest prognosis for patients with the grade IV tumour- the glioblastoma multiform (GBM).

Fibrinogen-like protein 2 (FGL2),regulates both innate and adaptive immunity. FGL2 is a 439 amino acid secreted protein that is similar to the β- and γ-chains of fibrinogen.

Secreted FGL2 (sFGL2) is the key regulator in immunosuppression may play important role in malignant transformation of low to high by inhibiting the proliferation of T cell Study the role of fibrinogen-like protein2 on Immunosuppression and progression ,free survival and overall survival in high grade glioma

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A neoplasm composed entirely of GRANULOSA CELLS, occurring mostly in the OVARY. In the adult form, it may contain some THECA CELLS. This tumor often produces ESTRADIOL and INHIBIN. The excess estrogen exposure can lead to other malignancies in women and PRECOCIOUS PUBERTY in girls. In rare cases, granulosa cell tumors have been identified in the TESTES.

An eph family receptor found primarily in the nervous system. In the embryonic BRAIN EphB1 receptor expression occurs in the mantle layer and increases with the progression of embryogenesis. In adult brain it is found in the several regions including the CEREBELLUM; CEREBRAL CORTEX; and CAUDATE NUCLEUS; and PUTAMEN.

A nonspecific term referring both to the pathologic finding of swelling of distal portions of axons in the brain and to disorders which feature this finding. Neuroaxonal dystrophy is seen in various genetic diseases, vitamin deficiencies, and aging. Infantile neuroaxonal dystrophy is an autosomal recessive disease characterized by arrested psychomotor development at 6 months to 2 years of age, ataxia, brain stem dysfunction, and quadriparesis. Juvenile and adult forms also occur. Pathologic findings include brain atrophy and widespread accumulation of axonal spheroids throughout the neuroaxis, peripheral nerves, and dental pulp. (From Davis & Robertson, Textbook of Neuropathology, 2nd ed, p927)

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.

Secretagogins are EF HAND MOTIF-containing calcium-binding proteins that are involved in early neuronal migration and neurogenesis. They are also present in many adult organs and in brain and endocrine neoplasms.
