Tumor Treating Fields for the Treatment of Brainstem Gliomas
https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT05310448

May 17th, 2022 - PRIMARY OBJECTIVE: I. To evaluate the safety and tolerability of tumor treating fields in combination with standard of care radiotherapy and chemotherapy in patients with brainstem gliomas. SECONDARY OBJECTIVE: I. To evaluate the anti-tumor activi...

Combining apatinib and temozolomide for brainstem glioblastoma: a case report and revie...

https://doi.org/10.1016/j.drudis.2021.12.016
Drug Discovery Today; Ni S, Chen R et. al.

Dec 27th, 2021 - As an intractable central nervous system (CNS) tumor, brainstem glioma (BG) is one of the leading causes of pediatric death by brain tumors. Owing to the risk of surgical resection and the little improvement in survival time after radiotherapy and...

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...

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) ...
