Revision of the World Health Organization classification of brain tumors for childhood brain tumors

L B RorkeL E Becker


A classification for childhood brain tumors based upon revision of nomenclature of all brain tumors published by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 1979 is proposed. Applicability of the WHO classification scheme was tested in a combined study of the clinical and pathologic features of approximately 3300 brain tumors in children. It was found to be adequate for many of the neoplasms but unsuitable for a significant proportion, including a number of complex cerebral tumors for which there was no appropriate name. Nomenclature of poorly differentiated or densely cellular neuroepithelial tumors was simplified to reflect the current state of knowledge of neuroembryology and neuro-oncology, although the Committee members recognized that such a proposal would likely perpetuate the long-standing and continuing controversy relative to the nature and origin of these neoplasms.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule.
