Delineation of two clinically and molecularly distinct subgroups of posterior fossa ependymoma.
Despite the histological similarity of ependymomas from throughout the neuroaxis, the disease likely comprises multiple independent entities, each with a distinct molecular pathogenesis.Expand
Epigenomic alterations define lethal CIMP-positive ependymomas of infancy
Ependymomas are common childhood brain tumours that occur throughout the nervous system, but are most common in the paediatric hindbrain. Current standard therapy comprises surgery and radiation, butExpand
Effect of Tandem Autologous Stem Cell Transplant vs Single Transplant on Event-Free Survival in Patients With High-Risk Neuroblastoma: A Randomized Clinical Trial.
Importance Induction chemotherapy followed by high-dose therapy with autologous stem cell transplant and subsequent antidisialoganglioside antibody immunotherapy is standard of care for patients withExpand
Immunotherapy of Childhood Sarcomas
Pediatric sarcomas are a heterogeneous group of malignant tumors of bone and soft tissue origin. Although more than 100 different histologic subtypes have been described, the majority of pediatricExpand
Treatment and outcome of adult‐onset neuroblastoma
Adult‐onset neuroblastoma is rare and little is known about its biology and clinical course. There is no established therapy for adult‐onset neuroblastoma. Anti‐GD2 immunotherapy is now standardExpand
Extracellular Vesicle and Particle Biomarkers Define Multiple Human Cancers
There is an unmet clinical need for improved tissue and liquid biopsy tools for cancer detection. We investigated the proteomic profile of extracellular vesicles and particles (EVPs) in 426 humanExpand
Lack of survival advantage with autologous stem-cell transplantation in high-risk neuroblastoma consolidated by anti-GD2 immunotherapy and isotretinoin
Since 2003, high-risk neuroblastoma (HR-NB) patients at our center received anti-GD2 antibody 3F8/GM-CSF + isotretinoin – but not myeloablative therapy with autologous stem-cell transplantationExpand
Successful Targeted Therapy of Refractory Pediatric ETV6-NTRK3 Fusion-Positive Secretory Breast Carcinoma.
This 14-year-old girl from a small farming village in rural Bangladesh presented in 2010 at 8 years of age with a lump in the left breast. There was no significantpastmedical or familyhistoryofExpand
Adoptive immunotherapy with haploidentical natural killer cells and Anti-GD2 monoclonal antibody m3F8 for resistant neuroblastoma: Results of a phase I study
ABSTRACT Natural killer (NK) cell-mediated antibody-dependent toxicity is a potent mechanism of action of the anti-GD2 murine monoclonal antibody 3F8 (m3F8). Killer immunoglobulin-like receptor (KIR)Expand
Ifosfamide, carboplatin, and etoposide for neuroblastoma
The authors report a retrospective analysis of high‐dose ifosfamide, carboplatin, and etoposide (HD‐ICE) for patients with refractory or relapsed neuroblastoma (NB). A major reason for using thisExpand
