  • tumours
  • Radiation therapy is the most common treatment for diffuse brain stem gliomas because most of these tumours cannot be removed with surgery. (cancer.ca)
  • brain
  • Gliomas located in brain stem area are difficult to treat even if they are benign. (medindia.net)
  • Brain stem gliomas are a type of glioma that starts in the brain stem. (cancer.ca)
  • Focal brain stem glioma occurs in one area or is contained within a small part of the brain stem. (cancer.ca)
  • A recurrent brain stem glioma is a tumour that has come back after treatment. (cancer.ca)
  • Treatment of brain stem gliomas in children with neurofibromatosis may differ. (cancer.ca)
  • Some focal brain stem gliomas grow so slowly that treatment might not be needed unless the tumour causes problems. (cancer.ca)
  • If treatment is needed, surgery is the main treatment used for focal or low-grade brain stem gliomas. (cancer.ca)
  • Recurrent focal brain stem gliomas may be treated with surgery, radiation therapy or chemotherapy or a combination of these treatments. (cancer.ca)
  • Chemotherapy drugs used for recurrent focal brain stem gliomas include carboplatin (Paraplatin, Paraplatin AQ) and vincristine (Oncovin). (cancer.ca)
  • There is no standard treatment for recurrent diffuse brain stem gliomas. (cancer.ca)
  • Many children with brain stem gliomas are treated in a clinical trial. (cancer.ca)
  • Intensive or high-dose chemotherapy with autologous bone marrow transplantation or peripheral blood stem cell rescue has not demonstrated any effectiveness in brain stem gliomas. (wikipedia.org)
  • citation needed] Neuroimaging, such as MRI, is the main diagnostic tool for brain stem gliomas. (wikipedia.org)
  • Nasal glioma (also known more correctly as Nasal glial heterotopia, along with "Brain-like heterotopia," "Cephalic brain-like heterotopia," "Glial hamartoma," "Nasal cerebral heterotopia," "Heterotopic neuroglial tissue," and "Nasal heterotopic brain tissue") is a rare benign congenital lesion, usually a firm, incompressible, reddish-blue to purple lesion occurring on the nasal bridge or midline near the root.

  • We describe here a method for generating mouse orthotopic gliomas in order to follow their progression over time by multi-photon laser scanning microscopy. (springer.com)

  • stem cells
  • Current studies suggest that high-grade gliomas arise from neural progenitor cells, but the precise stage of differentiation of such target cells (ie, stem cells versus progenitor cells) is not clear. (uptodate.com)

  • patients
  • Seizures are a very common symptom of these gliomas (affecting 50 percent to 80 percent of patients), as well as headache, weakness, or problems with speech. (hopkinsmedicine.org)
  • tissue
  • Glioma is a general name for any tumour that arises from the supportive tissue called glia , which help keep the neurons in place and functioning well. (wikipedia.org)
