Teenager Keiran Halliday grows 8 inches in a YEAR after brain tumour

Keiran Halliday, 19, from Bridgend, South Wales, has shot up eight inches in the last year after he was diagnosed with acromegaly, where the body produces too much growth hormone.

Conclusion: Aiming to achieve longer progression-free survival in cases of GS, we recommend resecting all portions of the mass as much as possible, so named en bloc resection, and then refer the patients for appropriate and timely chemoradiotherapy. PMID: 30533274 [PubMed]

Conclusions: Chordoid glioma of the third ventricle is a very rare tumor that is difficult to diagnose on routine neuroimaging. Accurate diagnosis requires detailed analysis of neuroimaging and immunohistochemical studies using CD34 and TTF-1 staining. PMID: 30533273 [PubMed]

MAPT (Tau) expression is a biomarker for an increased rate of survival for low‑grade glioma. Oncol Rep. 2018 Nov 28;: Authors: Zaman S, Chobrutskiy BCI, Sikaria D, Blanck G Abstract The association of MAPT (Tau) with various tauopathies and other neurological disorders has long been established. However, the role of microtubule‑associated protein Tau (MAPT) expression in brain cancer is largely unknown. To determine whether MAPT expression is related to low‑grade glioma (LGG) survival rates, RNASeq data representing samples from the Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) were assessed. Results revealed that ...

In conclusion, ROS production and MAPKs signaling pathways contribute to GdCl3‑induced caspase cascade‑mediated apoptosis in C6 cells. Our findings provide a better understanding of the molecular mechanisms underlying the role of GdCl3 in rat glioma C6 cells. PMID: 30535448 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

LesniakAbstractAlthough radiotherapy has been established as a major therapeutic modality for glioma, radical new avenues are critically needed to prevent inevitable tumor recurrence. Herein, we utilized a magnetic nanoparticle-based platform with cationic polymer modification to promote radiotherapy for glioma treatment. We found that the nanoplat...

Despite the improvement in cure rates, patients treated by radiotherapy are at risk of development of secondary malignancies. We conducted a comprehensive literature review of the secondary intracranial tumors that occurred following radiotherapy to pituitary aden...
