Using RNA sequence data from the Cancer Genome Atlas and the Chinese Glioma Genome Atlas, researchers identified six genes with expression ties to overall survival.

An array-based analysis involving more than two dozen patients led to a miRNA signature associated with overall survival in primary central nervous system lymphoma.

The transcription factor FOXM1 marked meningioma cases with poorer outcomes and enhanced cell proliferation, based on integrated exome, expression, and epigenetic profiles.

The researchers used DNA methylation profiles to define 82 central nervous system tumor classes, some of which differed from WHO tumor classes.

In conjunction with its 51 percent stake in Immuneering, Teva will have the right of first refusal in projects related to CNS disorder treatments.
