OBJECT Malignant progression of choroid plexus papillomas has been occasionally reported, but this issue has not yet been systematically addressed. METHODS Frequency and extent of malignant… Expand
Oral topotecan in children with recurrent or progressive high‐grade glioma
Continuous oral treatment with topotecan may be more effective than the typical 1‐day and 5‐day treatment schedules. In previous studies of continuous treatment with topotecan, increased intestinal… Expand
Preradiation chemotherapy of children and young adults with malignant brain tumors: results of the German pilot trial HIT'88/'89.
BACKGROUND Preradiation chemotherapy could be beneficial in malignant brain tumors, because the blood-brain tumor-barrier is disrupted after surgery, bone marrow recovery--essential for intense… Expand
Intensive chemotherapy improves survival in pediatric high‐grade glioma after gross total resection: results of the HIT‐GBM‐C protocol
The authors hypothesized that intensified chemotherapy in protocol HIT‐GBM‐C would increase survival of pediatric patients with high‐grade glioma (HGG) and diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG).
Preradiation chemotherapy for pediatric patients with high‐grade glioma
To evaluate the feasibility and efficacy of intensive chemotherapy given prior to irradiation in pediatric patients with malignant glioma, the Society of Pediatric Oncology in Germany started a… Expand
