A genomic analysis of ependymomas from 42 patients led to nearly 1,700 suspected super enhancers, highlighting potentially targetable genes.

Many molecularly distinct subgroups emerged from a meta-analysis bringing together more than 1,000 high-grade glioma or diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma cases.

With mutation, expression, and epigenetic features from hundreds of medulloblastoma tumors, researchers characterized key features of brain tumor subtypes.

Winship's director of the cancer tissue and pathology shared resource said that some labs aren't leveraging molecular technologies due to reimbursement issues. 

Amoy will supply its CD95 IHC and CpG2 qPCR kits to develop a companion diagnostic for Canbridge's lead product targeting recurrent glioblastoma multiforme.

A multi-region analysis of medulloblastoma and other tumor types highlighted the dramatic somatic alteration differences that can crop up within a single tumor.

For the first time, the researchers also found a clear difference in risk factors for high-grade glioblastoma versus low-grade glioma.

Mutation and expression patterns in longitudinal, multifocal, and solitary tumor samples suggest glioblastoma follows a multiverse model of evolution.

Angsana will support a Phase 2 basket trial for a tyrosine kinase inhibitor that targets tumors harboring TRK, ROS1, and ALK fusions.

The study will use NantHealth's GPS Cancer test to help treat adult and pediatric brain cancer patients.
