Molecular Analysis of Samples From Patients With Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma and Brainstem Glioma
https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT01106794

Nov 8th, 2021 - High grade diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG) accounts for approximately 80% of pediatric brainstem tumors and 10% of pediatric brain tumors, and is the most lethal form of brainstem gliomas in children. There is currently no effective therap...

Oct 8th, 2021 - Diffuse intrinsic pontine gliomas (DIPGs) arise in the pons and are the leading cause of death from brain tumors in children. DIPGs are routinely treated with radiation therapy, which temporarily improves neurological symptoms but generally fails ...

First-line Chemotherapy With Temozolomide Alone for Non-enhancing Adult Brainstem Gliomas, With a Diffuse Subtype and Showing Clinical and/or Radiological Infiltrative Pattern of Progression
https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT03932981

Sep 10th, 2021 - The goal of this study is to assess the impact (objective response) of first-line chemotherapy in infiltrative non-enhancing adult brainstem gliomas that are progressing in an infiltrative and non-threatening way. Upon progression, (radiotherapy) ...
