Treatment of high-grade glioma with radiolabeled peptides.

Hide Abstract
The management of high-grade glioma (HGG) patients in clinical routine represents a challenging task. HGG has a poor prognosis because of early recurrence or therapy-refractory disease following first-line standard therapy, which includes a multidisciplinary approach involving radical surgical resection followed by external beam radiation therapy in combination with chemotherapy. Glioma cells are known to express specific receptors or glycoproteins on their surface which can be used as biological targets for treatment. The application of radiopharmaceuticals consisting of a targeting and an effector domain has led to the introduction of new treatment approaches, aiming at a tumor-specific treatment sparing normal brain tissue. One of these new modalities is the peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT). Peptides labeled with radioactive nuclides can bind directly to the tumor cells and deliver high doses of radioactivity directly to the tumor tissue. This article reviews the literature for PRRT in HGG.

Hide Abstract
There is currently no standard for neurosurgical interventions in patients with recurrent high grade gliomas. An individualized approach is recommended as well for decision-making as for planning an intervention with resection of the outmost possible amount of tumor tissue while preserving neurological function and thus quality of life. Recent technical developments of imaging and of neuronavigation and visualization of tumor tissue with in vivo fluorescence with 5-Ala have proved helpful in improving symptoms and prolonging survival times also for patients with recurrent malignant gliomas.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) maps to distinguish anti-vascular and anti-tumor effects in the course of anti-angiogenic treatment of recurrent high-grade gliomas (rHGG) as compared to standard magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

Photodynamic diagnosis and therapy and the brain.

Hide Abstract
Photodynamic techniques such as photodynamic diagnosis (PDD), fluorescence-guided tumour resection (FGR) and photodynamic therapy (PDT) are currently undergoing intensive clinical investigations as adjuvant treatment for malignant brain tumours. The following chapter provides an overview on the current clinical data and trials of PDT as well as photosensitizers, technical developments and indications for photodynamic application in neurosurgery. Besides many clinical phase I/II trials for PDT for malignant brain tumours, there are only few controlled clinical trials following tumour resection. Variations in treatment protocols, variation of photosensitizers and light dose make the evaluation scientifically difficult; however there is a clear trend towards prolonging median survival after one single photodynamic treatment as compared to standard therapeutic regimens. According to the meta analysis the median survival after PDT for primary glioblastoma multiforme (WHO grade IV) was 22 months and for recurrent GBM was 9 months as compared to standard conventional treatment, in which it is 15 and 3 months, respectively. Fluorescence-guided resection of the tumour demonstrated significant greater reduction of tumour burden. The combination of PDD/ FGR and intraoperative PDT ("to see and to treat") offers an exciting approach to the treatment of malignant brain tumours. PDT was generally well tolerated and side effects consisted of occasionally increased intracranial pressure and prolonged skin sensitivity against direct sunlight.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
