Adrenocortical carcinoma (acc) is a rare malignancy of the adrenal cortex, associated with a generally dismal prognosis owing to its aggressive behavior. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to this disease.
Low grade gliomas in the brain form from oligodendrocytes and astrocytes and are the slowest-growing glioma in adults. Discover the latest research on these brain tumors here.
Brain Stem Neoplasms are cancers that are common in children and can occur in the mesencephalon, pons or medulla oblongata. Discover the latest research on Brain Stem Neoplasms here.
In CNS lymphoma, cancerous cells from lymph tissues or other parts of the body form tumors in the brain and/or spinal cord. Here is the latest research on this rare non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
Glioblastoma is the most common and aggressive type of brain tumor. It contains a population of tumor initiating stem cell-like cells known as cancer stem cells. Investigations are ongoing into these cancer stem cells found in these solid tumors which are highly resistance to treatment. Here is the latest research on cancer stem cells in glioblastoma.
Tumors within the cerebellum of the brain can be malignant or benign. This is often a secondary site for metastasis from other cancers, including lung and breast cancer. Symptoms of cerebellar tumors include ataxia and intracranial hypertension. Here is the latest research on cerebellar neoplasms.
Cerebral Ventricle Neoplasms are cancers that occur in the brain ventricles, which are structures that produce fluid for the spine and brain. Discover the latest research on Cerebral Ventricle Neoplasms here.
Diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma is a highly aggressive pediatric brainstem tumor with a peak incidence in middle childhood and a median survival of less than 1 year. Here is the latest research.
Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) is a tumor that develops from astrocytes and oligodendrocytes. Here is the latest research on mechanisms that underlie GBM and associated therapeutic approaches.
The cause of gliomas is not known, but certain genetic mutations have been associated with the development of gliomas. Recently, the World Health Organization has proposed a new classification of gliomas based upon genetic alterations. Find the latest research research on glioma genomics here.
Hypothalamic tumors are located within the hypothalamus of the brain. The tumors may arise from abnormal growth of glial cells, known as gliomas or may be caused from the spread from surrounding structures, such as optic tumors. Here is the latest research on hypothalamic neoplasms.
Medulloblastoma is a malignant brain tumor that starts in the cerebellum and spreads through the cerebrospinal fluid to other parts of the CNS. Here is the latest research on this cancer.
Meningeal carcinomatosis is a type of cancer that is spread into the leptomeninges within the brain, which are the inner two meningeal layers surrounding the brain. The most common types of cancer that spread to the leptomeninges via the CSF are breast cancer, melanoma and lung cancer. Here is the latest research on meningeal carcinomatosis.
Meningiomas are tumors that originate in the meninges, three layers of protective tissues that surround the brain and spinal cord. Discover the latest research on Meningiomas here.
Mesotheliomas are tumors that arise from the mesothelial cells of the pleura, peritoneum, pericardium, or tunica vaginalis. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to this disease.
This feed focuses on neuroblastoma in Zebrafish, as well as MYCN and ALK oncogenes which are highly expressed in neuroblastoma. Here is the latest research.
Opsoclonus-Myoclonus Syndrome (OMS) is a rare inflammatory neurological disorder characterized by ocular, sleep, and behavioural disorders, as well as ataxia. Here is the latest research on OMS.
