Red blood cell distribution width in glioblastoma.
Clinical Neurology and Neurosurgery; Kelly PD, Dambrino RJ et. al.

Jan 2nd, 2022 - Glioblastoma (GBM) is the most common and deadly adult brain tumor. Red blood cell distribution width (RDW) has been found in non-central nervous system neoplasms to be associated with survival. This study aims to assess the prognostic value of pr...

Racial/ethnic and sex differences in young adult malignant brain tumor incidence by his...
Cancer Epidemiology; Monterroso P, Moore KJ et. al.

Dec 14th, 2021 - Brain tumors are among the top four cancers in young adults. We assessed important windows of tumor development and examined the interplay of race/ethnicity, age, and sex in young adult brain tumor incidence. Using SEER 18 data (2000-2017), incide...

Incidence of Symptomatic Brain Injury Following Pencil Beam Scanning Proton Beam Therap...
International Journal of Radiation Oncology, Biology, Phy... Savla B, Alexander GS et. al.

Oct 28th, 2021 - Although proton beam therapy (PBT) results in decreased dose to non-target tissue compared to modern photon therapy, there are concerns of rare CNS injury occurring following PBT due in part to RBE/LET uncertainties. Such uncertainties can be furt...

CCNB2/SASP/Cathepsin B & PGE2 Axis Induce Cell Senescence Mediated Malignant Transforma...
International Journal of Biological Sciences; Wang Y, Zhang H et. al.

Sep 14th, 2021 - Glioma is the most frequent and aggressive adult brain tumor with maximum mortality. However, the gene alteration and mechanism underlying malignant transformation of glioma remain largely unknown. We aimed to find key factors regulating tumor pro...

Amide proton transfer-weighted MRI in the clinical setting - correlation with dynamic s...
Radiography (London, England : 1995); Friismose AI, Markovic L et. al.

Sep 13th, 2021 - We investigated the correlation between amide proton transfer-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (APTw MRI) and dynamic susceptibility contrast (DSC) perfusion in order to assess the potential of APTw MRI as an alternative to DSC in adult brain t...
