1. The clinical value of Ki-67/MIB-1 labeling index in human astrocytomas.
Match Strength: 3.459
The current WHO classification of human astrocytomas has limitations in predicting prognosis and diagnosis, and there is a need for additional factors. Several studies have investigated the clinical value of proliferative activity in these tumors, especially the Ki-67/MIB-1 labeling index (LI). The aim of this study was to review the literature on this topic to get a survey of the current experience. All studies show increasing values of Ki-67/MIB-1 LI with increasing grade of malignancy. Most of them demonstrate that MIB-1 LI differentiates well between diffuse astrocytomas WHO grade II (AII) ... Read More »

2. Apparent diffusion coefficient histograms may predict low-grade glioma subtype.
Match Strength: 3.058
The subtypes of glioma are known to have different prognosis and response to treatment. The purpose of this work was to investigate whether apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) histograms of untreated low-grade astrocytomas and oligodendrogliomas exhibit different characteristics due to their biological differences, and whether a diagnosis of tumour subtype can be made at presentation using the histogram alone, which, if possible, would have an impact on clinical practise. Fifteen patients with astrocytoma (AC) [11 male (mean age +/- standard deviation) 40 +/- 11 years], nine with ... Read More »

3. Combined treatment of pediatric high-grade glioma with the oncolytic viral strain MTH-68/H and oral valproic acid.
Match Strength: 2.987
The case of a 12-year-old boy with anaplastic astrocytoma of the left thalamus is reported. Postoperative irradiation and chemotherapy could not repress tumor progression; therefore, treatment was undertaken with an oncolytic virus, MTH-68/H, an attenuated strain of Newcastle disease virus (NDV), and valproic acid (VPA), an antiepileptic drug, which also has antineoplastic properties. This treatment resulted in a far-reaching regression of the thalamic glioma, but 4 months later a new tumor manifestation, an extension of the thalamic tumor, appeared in the wall of the IVth ventricle, which ...

4. Neuropathological spectrum of pilocytic astrocytoma: an Indian series of 120 cases.
Match Strength: 2.962
Pilocytic astrocytomas (PAs) are generally well circumscribed, slowly growing, cystic tumors, occurring in the pediatric age group. Our aims were to retrospectively analyze the neuropathological spectrum of PA, and correlate it with various clinicopathological features. A total of 120 PAs, diagnosed and managed at this center during a 5-year period, were included. The study population had a mean age of 18.9 years, with male predominance (68.3%), and demonstrated predilection for posterior fossa (61.7%). On histopathology, biphasic pattern (89.2%) along with Rosenthal fibers (66.7%) and ... Read More »
