Previous central nervous systems Oncology Scan articles in this publication have discussed treatment and molecular characterization of low-,1 intermediate-,2 and high-grade3,4 gliomas, controversies in the management of brain metastases,5-8 and evolving approaches to atypical meningiomas.9 Although arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) are nononcologic entities, optimal management of patients with this disease presents many of the same questions involved in the treatment of low-grade tumors: when, whom, or even if to treat.

Authors: Suo F, Zhong B, Lu F, Dong Z Abstract Glioma is the most aggressive brain tumor and is associated with a high mortality rate. The aim of the present study was to explore the association between matrix metalloproteinase 2 (MMP-2) and ephrin type-A receptor 2 (EphA2) expression in glioma cells, and to investigate the contribution of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in glioma classification. A total of 43 patients with pathologically confirmed glioma were divided into two groups as follows: Low-grade (grades I and II; n=21) and high-grade (grades IV and IV; n=22). Subsequently, immunohistochemistry staining w...

AbstractPrimary central nervous system lymphomas (PCNSLs) are typically intraparenchymal. A subset of PCNSLs predominantly arises in the ventricles, with minimal parenchymal involvement. We review the clinical, radiological, and pathological features of ventricle-predominant PCNSLs (VP-PCNSLs) in 40 previously reported cases and report 5 additional cases. Including all cases of VP-PCNSLs (n = 45), 38% were diffuse large B-cell lymphomas (DLBCL), 11% were Burkitt lymphomas, 7% were MALT lymphomas, 4% were T-cell lymphomas, and 40% were lymphomas, not otherwise classified. VP-PCNSLs show rapid clinical progress...

In a recent study performed in this setting specific effects can be induced by direct electrical stimulation on different sectors...

Researchers from the University of Strathclyde have developed a blood test that could help to accelerate the diagnosis of brain cancer. The technology uses infrared light to produce a "bio-signature" of a blood sample and applies artificial intelligence to check for the signs of cancer. This research is being commercialized by ClinSpec Diagnostics Ltd, a company spun out from the university in February 2019. The work has now been published in the journal Nature Communications, and also involved clinicians at the Western General Hospital in Edinburgh, the University of Liverpool and the Walton NHS Foundation Trust...

Abstract13N-Ammonia (13N-NH3) is widely used positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) radiotracer for the measurement of myocardial blood perfusion; the possible role of13N-NH3 PET or PET/CT in oncological disease is not yet clear. Aim of this review is to evaluate the diagnostic performances of13N-NH3 PET in this field. A comprehensive computer literature search of the PubMed/MEDLINE, Scopus, and Embase databases was conducted including articles up to June 2019. Eighteen articles were finally included in the review. From the analyses of the selected studies, the following main findings could be drawn: (1)...
