MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are endogenously small non-coding RNAs which are key post-transcriptional regulators of gene expression. Deregulation of miRNAs is common in human tumorigenesis. We report that miRNA-205 is significantly down-regulated in glioma cell lines and tissue specimens. Ectopic expression of miRNA-205 induces(More)
BACKGROUND Primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL) is an aggressive extranodal non-Hodgkin's lymphoma limited to the CNS. Treatment of PCNSL with high-dose methotrexate (HD-MTX)-based chemotherapy and whole-brain radiotherapy (WBRT) is associated with high rates of relapse and severe treatment-related neurotoxicity. AIM To report our experience of(More)
BACKGROUND Brain metastases (BMs) occur in up to 40% of patients with nonsmall-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). When surgery or radiosurgery is not possible, whole-brain radiotherapy (WBRT) is the standard treatment, with a cerebral response rate of approximately 30%. Pemetrexed-based chemotherapy presents an approximately 40% response rate on brain lesions of(More)
