This study aims to evaluate whether MRI can be used to predict genomics and prognosis in glioma. Given the profound prognostic significance of genetic mutations seen in glioma, there have been increasing attempts to correlate imaging characteristics with genetic, mutational and expression patterns. To be able to predict genomics and prognosis based on imaging alone will prove useful in patients with involvement of glioma in delicate areas of the brain and better reflect tumor and molecular heterogeneity.
Previous studies have proposed certain imaging characteristics correlating with genetic, molecular and expression patterns. Advanced imaging provides additional clues but no studies have examined its added value particularly in a prospective setting. The investigator's aim to evaluate preoperative MRI for patients suspected of glioma to predict IDH mutation, 1p19q codeletion, MGMT methylation and EGFR mutation status using imaging characteristics such as margin, patterns of contrast enhancement and edema as well as diffusion and perfusion characteristics. This will be confirmed pathologically and further correlated with patients' long term outcome.

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...
Glioma was the most frequent primary brain tumor. Immunotherapy is one of the most promising therapeutic approaches for gliomas. TIM-3 can induce the malignancy of gliomas. The function of GAL-9, as o...
Glioma is the most common primary malignant tumor in the central nervous system. Because of the resistance of glioma to chemoradiotherapy and its aggressive growth, the survival rate of patients with ...
To investigate the expression level of microRNA-374b in glioma tissues and its influence on the invasive ability of glioma cells. Meanwhile, the regulatory mechanism of microRNA-374b in glioma was als...
Glioma is identified as a broad category of brain and spinal cord tumors. MiR-362-3p is important in regulating the genesis of different cancers; however, the mechanism of miR-362-3p in the progressio...
To study the correlations of micro ribonucleic acid (miR)-126 expression with pathogenesis and prognosis of glioma, and to screen potential biological targets for the diagnosis, treatment and prognosi...
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. (From Clin Neurol Neurosurg 1997 Feb;99(1):17-22)
Neoplasms located in the brain ventricles, including the two lateral, the third, and the fourth ventricle. Ventricular tumors may be primary (e.g., CHOROID PLEXUS NEOPLASMS and GLIOMA, SUBEPENDYMAL), metastasize from distant organs, or occur as extensions of locally invasive tumors from adjacent brain structures.
Benign and malignant neoplasms that arise from the optic nerve or its sheath. OPTIC NERVE GLIOMA is the most common histologic type. Optic nerve neoplasms tend to cause unilateral visual loss and an afferent pupillary defect and may spread via neural pathways to the brain.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
