To evaluate clinical evolution of pediatric patients diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) at Hospital Infantil de México Federico Gómez. Cases of patients treated from January to May, 2007, were included in this study. Variables analyzed were: age, diagnosis, size of tumor, histopathological description, degree of resection, time of stay in(More)
Resistance to the cytotoxic effects of alkylating agents is a major limitation to their clinical efficacy. Although a number of animal and human tumor cell models have been developed to study this problem, it has proven difficult to achieve very high levels of resistance to alkylating agents in vitro. This is consistent with the recent clinical evidence(More)
We investigated the transport of [chloroethyl-14C]melphalan with lymphocytes from three groups of patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (untreated, treated sensitive, and treated resistant). There was no significant difference in the Km or Vmax of melphalan transport in lymphocytes from the three groups. In addition, there were no significant(More)
Astrocytomas are the most frequent type of tumor of the central nervous system in children. Hence, it is important to describe markers that may improve our understanding of their behavior. Mature microRNAs (miRNAs) may be such biological markers. They are small molecules of RNA that regulate gene expression post-transcriptionally. Due to their importance in(More)
A 10-month-old girl with a Brachmann-Cornelia de Lange syndrome and a choroid plexus papilloma of the brain was studied at the Hospital Infantil de México Federico Gómez (HIMFG) in Mexico City. Presumptive papilloma of the third ventricle was evidenced on CT and MR images and removed. Pathological analysis confirmed its origin. A posterior radiosurgery was(More)
MicroRNAs were identified as molecules that participate in gene regulation; alterations in their expression characterize central nervous system (CNS). Information in pediatrics is scarce, so the objective of this work was to determine and then compare the patterns of expression of microRNAs in astrocytomas, ependymomas, and medulloblastomas, as well as in(More)
