A new study suggests that using rotavirus in combination with immune checkpoint blockade therapy could give oncologists a new way to treat pediatric cancers.

The FDA and its pediatric oncology drugs advisory committee heard at a recent meeting how the drug is allowing some to live longer than expected, without toxicities.

The researchers believe using cerebral spinal fluid will enable them to identify brain tumors with a higher sensitivity than with blood samples.

Researchers identified germline and somatic changes that marked low-grade and high-grade cases in adults and children with a condition called neurofibromatosis 1.

Investigators developed a droplet digital PCR assay targeting driver mutations and found that changes in circulating DNA were correlated with response to radiation.

The researchers aim to offer the half-hour diagnostic assay for use during neurosurgery to help clinicians pursue the best treatment for patients with gliomas.  

Researchers analyzed HERBY trial data to uncover a subgroup of patients with MAPK pathway alterations who had increased overall survival.

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