• malignant brain
  • In these cases, untreated survival usually amounts to only a few months, and survival with current radiation and chemotherapy treatments may extend that time from around a year to a year and a half, possibly two or more, depending on the patient's condition, immune function, treatments used, and the specific type of malignant brain neoplasm. (wikipedia.org)
  • commonly
  • While neurocognitive impairments in attention, memory and executive functioning are commonly reported sequelae of childhood leukemia and brain tumors, studies have only recently begun to examine the treatment of attention deficits in this population. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Phase
  • This phase I study, is based on the range of efficacy of Vorinostat and its ability to cross the blood-brain barrier. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Clinical trial is a combined Phase I/II imaging, open label, single site study in patients with known or suspected carcinoma of the lung, breast, renal cell, pancreas or brain, and with gastrointestinal malignancies, neuroendocrine tumours, or lymphoma. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Trauma
  • In patients with loss of visual imagery during sleep, instances of acute-onset brain damage such as thrombosis, hemorrhage, trauma, and carbon monoxide poisoning in particular have been indicated as possible motivators for CWS. (wikipedia.org)
  • Visual impairment can also be caused by problems in the brain due to stroke, premature birth, or trauma among others. (wikipedia.org)
  • gliomas
  • Despite widespread localization in the brain, astroblastoma is rarely reported in oncological studies, accounting for only 0.45-2.8% of all brain gliomas since its discovery in 1926. (wikipedia.org)
  • irradiation
  • Whole-brain irradiation is used as a primary treatment method in patients with multiple lesions and is also used alongside surgical resection when patients have single and accessible tumors. (wikipedia.org)
  • blood brain b
  • Objective: The normal blood brain barrier (BBB) is composed of tight junctions between endothelial cells and surrounding astrocyte foot processes. (scopemed.org)
  • Evaluation
  • As one evaluation of brain. (springer.com)
  • Additionally, imaging and its derivatives have made an impact in knowledge of what represents a normal adult brain the evaluation of multiple disease processes, primar- and a normal developing brain along with an exp- ily in ischemia, but also in other conditions of the nation of artifacts seen in DW imaging makes this a brain. (springer.com)
  • focal
  • Charcot-Wilbrand syndrome (CWS) describes dream loss following focal brain damage specifically characterized by visual agnosia and loss of ability to mentally recall or "revisualize" images. (wikipedia.org)
  • impairment
  • Earlier, in 1908, researchers Lewandowsky and Stadelmann published the first report of an individual afflicted with calculation impairment due to brain damage. (wikipedia.org)
  • migraine
  • The first possibility is that migraine offers an advantage to the organism in fighting infection by increasing blood flow to the brain. (wikipedia.org)
  • patients
  • This condition is quite rare affecting only a select number of brain damage patients, and further study could help illustrate the neurological pathway for dream formation. (wikipedia.org)
  • However
  • The question remains, however, as to the extent of GI in other samples of Ph tumors and, indeed, in different types of Drosophila malignant neoplasms. (g3journal.org)
  • However, the effectiveness of this medication for improving attention and behavioral functioning in children with medical illnesses or brain injury are less clear. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • However due to significant differences in the observations of Charcot and Wilbrand's case work, this syndrome bridged the entire loss of dreaming, whether it be due to the isolated inability of the brain to produce images while asleep as Charcot had dictated, or the complete loss of dreaming all together as with Wilbrand. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, damage to various but not necessarily identified areas of the brain can cause computational difficulties, as various cognitive functions are necessary to execute mathematical calculations. (wikipedia.org)
  • high-grade
  • The rapid growth of fast-growing high-grade brain tumors may damage the subcortical network essential for electrical transmission, whereas slow-growing tumors have been suggested to induce partial deafferentation of cortical regions, causing denervation hypersensitivity and producing an epileptogenic milieu. (wikipedia.org)
  • In general, when brain lesions are smaller than Grade I, demarcating between these features is near impossible, often mistaking astroblastoma with glial neoplasms, high-grade astrocytes, and embryonal neoplasms. (wikipedia.org)
  • include
  • Relevant molecular changes in brain tumors that affect BBB structure and function include decreased expression of transmembrane junctional proteins and heightened release of vascular endothelial growth factor. (wikipedia.org)
  • nerve
  • Olfactory-induced migraines (migraines stimulated by strong smells) have been explained as an attempt to interrupt the entry of toxins into the brain via the olfactory nerve. (wikipedia.org)
  • different
  • In 1936, Lindquist proposed that lesions of different areas of the brain can cause different calculation defects, and that there are therefore several variations of acalculia. (wikipedia.org)
  • present
  • T is will allow cross-referencing to pr- molecules in the brain to the present time, dif usion lematic cases which one may encounter. (springer.com)
