CONCLUSIONS: HGG patients have less species diversity of TCR repertoires compared with that of healthy individuals. TRBV9 regions in TCRs may be protective factors for long-term survival of GBM patients. PMID: 31205101 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Sun Y, Xiong ZY, Yan PF, Jiang LL, Nie CS, Wang X Abstract We evaluated characteristics and different prognostic factors for survival in age-stratified high-grade glioma in a US cohort. Eligible patients were identified in the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) registries and stratified into 3 age groups: 20-39 years old (1,043 patients), 40-59 years old (4,503 patients), and>60 years old (5,045 patients). Overall and cancer-related survival data were obtained. Cox models were built to analyze the outcomes and risk factors. It showed that race was a prognostic factor for survival in pati...

Abstract Recent reports describe how genome-wide transcriptional analysis of cancer tissues can be exploited to identify molecular signatures of immune infiltration in cancer. We hypothesize that immune infiltration in cancer may also be defined by changes in certain epigenetic signatures. In this context, a primary objective is to identify site-specific CpG markers whose levels of methylation may be highly indicative of known transcriptional markers of immune infiltration such as GZMA, PRF1, T cell receptor genes, PDCD1, and CTLA4. This has been accomplished by integrating genome-wide transcriptional expression a...

ini The rat protoparvovirus H-1PV is nonpathogenic in humans, replicates preferentially in cancer cells, and has natural oncolytic and oncosuppressive activities. The virus is able to kill cancer cells by activating several cell death pathways. H-1PV-mediated cancer cell death is often immunogenic and triggers anticancer immune responses. The safety and tolerability of H-1PV treatment has been demonstrated in early clinical studies in glioma and pancreatic carcinoma patients. Virus treatment was associated with surrogate signs of efficacy including immune conversion of tumor microenvironment, effective virus distributi...

BOSTON (CBS) — Researchers in Finland have developed a so-called “artificial nose” that they believe can help sniff out brain cancer during surgery. Surgeons often use an electric knife, particularly when operating on the brain. As the knife cuts, it burns through tissue, releases molecules into the air in the form of surgical smoke. Researchers developed a way to feed this smoke into a measuring system that has been taught to recognize smoke molecules from malignant tissue versus that from healthy tissue. In a study of almost 700 tissue samples, the device was at least 83 percent accurate at finding the ...

ConclusionsAngiocentric Glioma is a rare neoplasm mostly present in patients with difficult to control epilepsies. Tumoral resection provides broad control of symptoms, besides reducing recurrence and the progression of the disease, leading to an extremely favorable prognosis.

ConclusionsIncidence and prevalence of these rare brain and other CNS tumor histologies have not been previously reported. Along with survival, these data provide a statistical foundation to understand the impact of these cancers and provide important disease-specific data for the design of prospective clinical trials.
