CONCLUSIONS: This study establishes normative data for a model exploiting dogs with naturally occurring glioma, which can be used to test novel therapies prior to translation to human trials. Further work will focus on the effects of different therapies, including chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and immunotherapy. PMID: 30234401 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionsDeficits in social cognition are frequent and clinically relevant in patients with intracranial tumors. The inclusion of social cognitive measures in the routine neuropsychological examination for brain tumor patients might add valuable information about the patient whilst requiring reasonable additional resources.

This midbrain mass in a 33-year-old patient has low-grade histology (minimal mitoses, low MIB-1 cell cycling index, and a single Rosenthal fiber), yet it harbors the H3 K27M mutation. Perivascular lymphocytes were present, but ganglioglioma was ruled out. So, the following diagnosis was rendered:diffuse midline glioma, H3 K27M mutant, WHO grade IV. Other molecular changes included loss of p16 (CDKN2a) and loss of PTEN and 10 centromere, consistent with monosomy for chromosome 10. The discordance between histopathology and molecular findings can make the diagnostician squeamish about rendering a high-grade diagnos...

Cancers, Vol. 9, Pages 103: Secondary Intracranial Tumors Following Radiotherapy for Pituitary Adenomas: A Systematic Review Cancers doi: 10.3390/cancers9080103 Authors: Ryuya Yamanaka Eisuke Abe Toshiteru Sato Azusa Hayano Yasuo Takashima Pituitary adenomas are often treated with radiotherapy for the management of tumor progression or recurrence. 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...
