Potential therapy found for incurable pediatric brain tumor
(Northwestern University) scientists have discovered a new potential drug therapy for a rare, incurable pediatric brain tumor by targeting a genetic mutation found in children with the cancer.By inhibiting the tumor-forming consequences of the mutation using an experimental drug called GSKJ4, they delayed tumor growth and prolonged survival in mice with pediatric brainstem glioma.

Newly identified brain cancer mutation will aid drug development
New genetic insights into a rare and deadly form of childhood and young adult brain cancer called brainstem glioma has been identified by an international team of researchers. The researchers identified a genetic mutation in the tumor cells that plays a role in both the growth and the death of a cell. Additionally, the mutation to the newly identified gene may also contribute to the tumor’s resistance to radiation. (Source: ScienceDaily Headlines)

Researcher studies pediatric brain stem tumors
Children's National researcher, Javad Nazarian, PhD, authored a new study entitled, "Comparative Multidimensional Molecular Analyses of Pediatric Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma Reveals Distinct Molecular Subtypes." The study found, for the first time, two distinct subtypes in pediatric diffuse intrinsic pontine gliomas (DIPG). It was published online in Acta Neuropathologica, a leading journal on pathology and pathogenesis of neurological disease. (Source: Health News from Medical News Today)

What Neoplasms are Patients with Neurofibromatosis At Risk For?
Discussion Neurofibromatosis Type 1 (NF1) is one of many neurocutaneous diseases with a probable underestimated incidence of 1:3000. Also called phacomatoses, a review can be found at: What is the Epidemiology and Genetics of the Major Phacomatoses? The key elements of NF1 are: Neurofibromatosis Type 1 Epidemiology: 1:2500-3000 – most common phacomatosis Genetics: autosomal dominant with variable penetrance, associated with chromosome 17 Neurological: various central nervous system tumors especially neurofibromas (often benign but may act malignant because of location or size, tumors may also degenerate into a mal...
