Glioma is the most common and aggressive primary brain tumor in adults. Long-non coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been recently shown to play important roles in regulating numerous biological processes both in physiologic and pathologic condition. However, the role of lncRNAs in glioma remains largely unknown. In this study, we firstly found that lncRNA CCND2-AS2 is significantly up regulated in malignant glioma tissues and cell lines. Both loss- and gain-functions assays show that CCND2-AS1 promotes glioma cells proliferation and growth...

BACKGROUND: Each year, over 16,000 patients die from malignant brain cancer in the US. Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) have recently been shown to play critical roles in regulating neurogenesis and brain tumor progression. To better understand the role of lncRNAs in brain cancer, we performed a global analysis to identify and characterize all annotated and novel lncRNAs in both grade II and III gliomas as well as grade IV glioblastomas (glioblastoma multiforme [GBM]). METHODS AND FINDINGS: We determined the expression of all lncRNAs in over 650 brain cancer and 70 normal brain tissue RNA sequencing datasets from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) and other publicly available datasets...

REVIEW
Lawrence Kleinberg
Polifeprosan 20 with carmustine (GLIADEL(®)) polymer implant wafer is a biodegradable compound containing 3.85% carmustine (BCNU, bischloroethylnitrosourea) implanted in the brain at the time of planned tumor surgery, which then slowly degrades to release the BCNU chemotherapy directly into the brain thereby bypassing the blood-brain barrier. Carmustine implant wafers were demonstrated to improve survival in randomized placebo-controlled trials in patients undergoing a near total resection of newly diagnosed or recurrent malignant glioma...

BACKGROUND/AIM: Statins are cholesterol reducers with considerable dose-dependent effect against glioma cells. The apoptotic effect could be increased by combining statins or by adding pioglitazone (PGZ). The last one is an anti-diabetic drug, an agonist of the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-gamma (PPARG). We used an animal model to test the effect of such combination in vivo and we investigated the changes on immunological processes. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Thirty-three rats (F344/DuCrl) were anesthetized and glioblastoma (F98) cells were implanted stereotactically...

Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most common primary malignant tumors originating in the brain parenchyma. At present, GBM patients have a poor prognosis despite the continuous progress in therapeutic technologies including surgery, radiotherapy, photodynamic therapy, and chemotherapy. Recent studies revealed that miR-101 was remarkably down-regulated in kinds of human cancers and was associated with aggressive tumor cell proliferation and stem cell self-renewal. Data also showed that miR-101 was down-regulated in primary glioma samples and cell lines, but the underlying molecular mechanism of the deregulation of miR-101 in glioma remained largely unknown...

The expression of microRNA 21 (miR-21) has been reported to be upregulated in various types of cancer, including malignant gliomas. However, its functions and mechanisms in glioma remain to be fully elucidated. The present study established miRNA‑21 overexpression and knockdown cell lines using SRY‑box 2 (Sox2) small interfering RNA (siRNA) to knockdown expression and Sox2 cDNA was cloned into pcDNA 3.1 mammalian expression vector for ectopic expression. BIO and XAV‑939 were used for β‑catenin signaling activation and knockdown, respectively...

INTRODUCTION: Surgical resection used to be the mainstay of treatment for glioma. In the last decade, however, opinion has changed about the goal of surgical resection in treating glioma. Ample evidence shows that maximum safe resection in glioblastoma improves survival. Neurosurgeons have therefore revised their objective of surgery from diagnostic biopsy or limited debulking to maximum safe resection. Given these changes in the management of glioma, we compared the survival of local Chinese patients with glioblastoma multiforme over a period of 10 years...

Tomato thymidine kinase 1 (ToTK1) is a deoxyribonucleoside kinase (dNK) that has been subject to study because of its potential to phosphorylate the nucleoside analogue 3-azido-2,3-dideoxythymidine (azidothymidine, AZT) equally well as its natural substrate thymidine (dThd). The combination of ToTK1 and AZT has been tested in two animal studies for its efficiency and use in suicide gene therapy for malignant glioma. The determination of the 3D structure of ToTK1 might shed light on the structure-function relationships of nucleoside activation by this enzyme and thereby show routes toward further improvement of ToTK1 and other TK1-like dNKs for suicide gene therapy...

The human metastasis associated lung adenocarcinoma transcript 1 (MALAT1) is a long non-coding RNA associated with metastasis, and is a favorable prognostic factor for lung cancer. Recent studies have shown that MALAT1 plays an important role in many malignancies. However, little is known about the role of MALAT1 in glioma. In this study, we determined the expression of MALAT1 and explored its prognostic value in glioma. Further, we investigated the regulatory mechanism of MALAT1 in glioma progression. Our results showed that the expression of MALAT1 was significantly decreased in glioma specimens than in noncancerous brain tissues...

BACKGROUND: Bevacizumab is an antiangiogenic agent active in patients with recurrent malignant gliomas. However, evidence for its clinical efficacy is relatively limited so that bevacizumab is approved for this indication in Canada and the United States, but not in the European Union. We reviewed the effectiveness of bevacizumab in patients with recurrent brain tumour using a large population database. METHODS: This was a retrospective, multicentre, study conducted at the BC Cancer Agency, a public cancer care organisation for the residents of the Canadian province of British Columbia...

: Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is a common malignant brain tumor that portends extremely poor patient survival. Recent studies reveal that glioma stem-like cells (GSCs) are responsible for GBM escape from chemo-radiotherapy and mediators of tumor relapse. Previous studies suggest that AEG-1 (MTDH), an oncogene upregulated in most types of cancers including GBM, plays a focal role linking multiple signaling pathways in tumorigenesis. We now report a crucial role of AEG-1 in glioma stem cell biology...

The mixed-metal supramolecular complex, [(Ph2phen)2Ru(dpp)PtCl2](2+), displays significant DNA modification, cell growth inhibition, and toxicity towards F98 malignant glioma cells following visible light irradiation. The design of this complex affords superior cellular uptake and antiproliferative activity compared to the classic chemotherapeutic agent, cisplatin.

Astrocytomas are one of the most common brain tumours; however, the current methods used to characterize these tumours are inadequate. The establishment of molecular markers may identify variables required to improve tumour characterization and subtyping, and may aid to specify targets for improved treatment with essential prognostic value for patient survival. One such candidate is testin (TES), which was reported to have prognostic value for glioblastoma patients. However, the role of TES protein in gliomagenesis is currently unknown...

Malignant brain tumors are devastating despite aggressive treatments such as surgical resection, chemotherapy and radiation therapy. The average life expectancy of patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma is approximately ~18 months. It is clear that increased survival of brain tumor patients requires the design of new therapeutic modalities, especially those that enhance currently available treatments and/or limit tumor growth. One novel therapeutic arena is the metabolic dysregulation that results in an increased need for glucose in tumor cells...
