Expression of CD44 in glioma cells was previously correlated with tumor grade and is considered a stem cell marker. CD44 stabilizes the cystine-glutamate transporter (xCT) and inhibits apoptosis in cancer stem cells (CSCs). Recently it was found that Sulfasalazine (SSZ), an anti-inflammatory drug, acts as an inhibitor of xCT and therefore has potential as a targeted therapy for CSCs. In this study, we tested an efficacy of SSZ against glioma stem cell model developed in rats. As poor penetration of blood-brain barrier resulted in insufficient efficacy of systemic SSZ treatment, SSZ was delivered locally with convection-enhanced delivery (CED)...

Silent corticotroph staining pituitary adenoma (SCA) represents an uncommon subset of Non-Functioning adenomas (NFAs), hypothesized to be more locally aggressive. In this retrospective multicenter study, we investigate the safety and effectiveness of Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) in patients with SCA compared with other non-SCA NFA's. Eight centers participating in the International Gamma-Knife Research Foundation (IGKRF) contributed to this study. Outcomes of 50 patients with confirmed SCAs and 307 patients with confirmed non-SCA NFA's treated with SRS were evaluated...

Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) represents a promising source of cell-free DNA (cfDNA) for tumors of the central nervous system. A CSF-based liquid biopsy may obviate the need for riskier tissue biopsies and serve as a means for monitoring tumor recurrence or response to therapy. Spinal ependymomas most commonly occur in adults, and aggressive resection must be delicately balanced with the risk of injury to adjacent normal tissue. In patients with subtotal resection, recurrence commonly occurs. A CSF-based liquid biopsy matched to the patient's spinal ependymoma mutation profile has potential to be more sensitive then surveillance MRI, but the utility has not been well characterized for tumors of the spinal cord...

The goal of this study is to spatially discriminate tumor from treatment effect (TE), within the contrast-enhancing lesion, for brain tumor patients at all stages of treatment. To this end, the diagnostic accuracy of MRI-derived diffusion and perfusion parameters to distinguish pure TE from pure glioblastoma (GBM) was determined utilizing spatially-correlated biopsy samples. From July 2010 through June 2015, brain tumor patients who underwent pre-operative DWI and DSC-MRI and stereotactic image-guided biopsy were considered for inclusion in this IRB-approved study...

Studies comparing intraventricular oligodendroglioma (IVO) and central neurocytoma (CN) in terms of their clinical, radiological and pathological features are scarce. We, therefore, investigated the similarities and differences between these types of tumors to get a better understanding of how they may be more properly diagnosed and treated. The clinical manifestations, CT/MRI findings, pathological characteristics and clinical outcomes of 8 cases of IVOs and 12 cases of CNs were analyzed retrospectively. Both IVO and CN occurred most commonly in young adults and manifested with symptoms of increased intracranial pressure secondary to obstructive hydrocephalus...

To investigate the radiomic features associated with Ki-67 expression in lower grade gliomas and assess the prognostic values of these features. Patients with lower grade gliomas (n = 117) were randomly assigned into the training (n = 78) and validation (n = 39) sets. A total of 431 radiological features were extracted from each patient. Differential radiological features between the low and high Ki-67 expression groups were screened by significance analysis of microarrays. Then, generalized linear analysis was performed to select features that could predict the Ki-67 expression level...

The radiogenomics association of neovascularization is important for overall survival (OS) in glioblastoma patients and remains unclear. The purpose of this study is to assess the association between MR perfusion imaging derived parameters and genomic biomarkers of glioblastoma, and to evaluate their prognostic value. This retrospective study enrolled 41 patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma. The mean and maximal relative cerebral blood volume (rCBV) ratio (rCBVmean and rCBVmax), derived from MR perfusion weighted imaging, of the enhancing tumor, as well as maximal rCBV ratio of peri-enhancing tumor area (rCBVperi-tumor) were measured...

Measures of treatment intensity for childhood cancer are needed in research in order to control for variability in treatments. Existing measures of treatment intensity for childhood cancers do not reflect the complexities of treatment protocols for central nervous system (CNS) tumors. This paper describes the development of the Pediatric Neuro-Oncology Rating of Treatment Intensity (PNORTI). PNORTI development occurred in three phases. Phase 1: five experts in pediatric neuro-oncology created a 5-point scale of treatment intensity and 42 pediatric neuro-oncology providers completed a three-part online questionnaire to evaluate the classification system and apply the rating system to 16 sample patients...

Spalt-like transcription factor 4 (SALL4), a oncogene, is known to participate in multiple carcinomas, and is up-regulated in glioma. However, its actual role and underlying mechanisms in the development of glioma remain unclear. The present study explored the molecular functions of SALL4 in promoting cell proliferation in glioma. The expression level of SALL4 in 69 human glioma samples and six non-tumor brain tissues was determined using real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Then, we transfected U87 and U251 cell lines with siRNA, and assessed cellular proliferation and cell cycle to understand the function of SALL4, and the relationship between SALL4, PTEN and PI3K/AKT pathway...

Management of low-grade gliomas (LGG) is based on clinical and radiologic features, including the Pignatti prognostic scoring system, which classifies patients as low- or high-risk. To determine whether molecular data can offer advantages over these features, we have examined the prognostic impact of several molecular alterations in LGG. In a cohort of 58 patients with LGG, we have retrospectively analyzed clinical and molecular characteristics, including the Pignatti criteria, IDH mutations, TP53 mutations, the 1p/19q deletion, and MGMT methylation, and correlated our findings with progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS)...

Computational modeling shows that intra-arterial delivery is most efficient when the delivered drugs rapidly and avidly bind to the target site. The cell-penetrating peptide trans-activator of transcription (TAT) is a candidate carrier molecule that could mediate such specificity for brain tumor chemotherapeutics. To test this hypothesis we first performed in vitro studies testing the uptake of TAT by one primary and three potentially metastatic brain cancer cell lines (9L, 4T-1, LLC, SKOV-3). Then we performed in vivo studies in a rat model where TAT was delivered either intra-arterially (IA) or intravenously (IV) to 9L brain tumors...

Gap-junctional intercellular communication (GJIC) plays a major role in the malignant growth of glioma. Although the mechanistic aspects of GJIC have been extensively studied, the role of connexins in the regulation of the malignant behavior of glioma stem cells (GSCs) remains unclear. In our previous studies, we have shown that connexin30 can interfere with the insulin-like growth factor 1 receptor (IGF-1R), which is known for self-renewal and pluripotency. Following our earlier in vitro observation, in this work, we aimed to study the consequence of this influence of Cx30 on IGF-1R by evaluating the marker of GSCs, CD133 and oncoprotein, cMyc...

The 2016 World Health Organization Classification of Tumors of the Central Nervous System incorporates the use of molecular information into the classification of brain tumors, including grade II and III gliomas, providing new prognostic information that cannot be delineated based on histopathology alone. We hypothesized that these genomic subgroups may also have distinct imaging features. A retrospective single institution study was performed on 40 patients with pathologically proven infiltrating WHO grade II/III gliomas with a pre-treatment MRI and molecular data on IDH, chromosomes 1p/19q and ATRX status...

In this national population-based study of glioma, we present epidemiologic data on incidence, demographics, survival, clinical characteristics and symptoms, and evaluate the association of specific indicators with the grade of glioma. We included 1930 patients registered in the Danish Neuro-Oncology Registry (DNOR) from 2009 to 2014. DNOR is a large-scale national population-based database including all adult glioma patients in Denmark. The age-adjusted annual incidence of histologic verified glioma was 7...

Glioblastoma stands out as the most frequent central nervous system neoplasia, presenting a poor prognosis. The aim of this study was to verify the frequency and clinical significance of the aneuploidy of chromosomes 7 and 10, EGFR amplification, PTEN and TP53 deletions and 1p/19q deficiency in adult patients diagnosed with glioblastoma. The sample consisted of 40 patients treated from November 2011 to March 2015 at two major neurosurgery services from Southern Brazil. Molecular cytogenetic analyses of the tumor were performed through fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH)...

Prior studies exploring the impact of resident involvement on complication and mortality rates in neurosurgery have evaluated heterogeneous cohorts. Since brain tumor resection is characterized by significant operative complexity, variety, and morbidity, intraoperative resident involvement has the potential to impact patient outcomes. The purpose of this study was thus to explore the relationship between resident involvement and patient outcomes following craniotomy for brain tumor resection. Data for adult patients undergoing craniotomy for brain tumor resection were extracted from the 2008-2014 National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database...

Among primary brain tumors, gliomas are the most common and most aggressive, with a poor prognosis and limited treatment options. Thus, it is essential to determine the mechanisms involved in glioma development to develop effective therapies for glioma patients. Pre-B-cell leukemia homeobox 3 (PBX3), a critical member of the PBX family, is frequently overexpressed in multiple human malignancies. However, the expression patterns and biological functions, as well as the involved molecular functions of PBX3 in human gliomas remain largely unknown...
