Adaptation to hypoxia is a critical step in tumor progression and is, in part, regulated by the transcription factor hypoxia-inducible factor-1alpha (HIF-1alpha). Xenograft models have been extensively used to characterize the role of HIF-1alpha in experimental cancers. Although these models provide an understanding of tumor growth at terminal stages of(More)
Hypoxia inducible factor-1 (HIF-1) is a transcription factor that is a major regulator of energy homeostasis and cellular adaptation to low oxygen stress. HIF-1 is also activated in response to bacterial pathogens and supports the innate immune response of both phagocytes and keratinocytes. In this work, we show that a new pharmacological compound AKB-4924(More)
OBJECT The object of this study was to determine the tolerability and activity of lacosamide in patients with brain tumors. METHODS The authors reviewed the medical records at 5 US academic medical centers with tertiary brain tumor programs, seeking all patients in whom a primary brain tumor had been diagnosed and who were taking lacosamide. RESULTS The(More)
Recently cell phones have become the target of much controversy because they are increasingly being viewed as potential carcinogenic agents with a causal role in brain tumor development. The overall incidence of malignant brain tumors in the United States from 1992 to 2007 declined slightly from 6.8 to 6.2 per 100,000, while the incidence in children has(More)
122 Background: Glioblastomas are considered the most life-threatening central nervous system (CNS) tumors. With such a rapidly progressing disease resulting in low survival rates, it is no surprise that many of the factors related to first-course treatment regimens are also related to patient survival. There is a need to investigate treatment patterns and(More)
