Development of a New Therapy Against Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma
Ion channels, special cellular proteins, could serve as new targets for the treatment of diffuse intrinsic pontine gliomas. Researchers will try and identify DIPG associated ion channels through interrogation of data from the Pediatric Brain Tumor Atlas.
Brainstem glioma- Diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma
A presumptive diagnosis of DIPG based on classic imaging features, in the absence of a histologic diagnosis, has been routinely employed. Increasingly however, histologic confirmation is obtained for both entry into research studies and molecular characterization of the tumor. New approaches with
