PURPOSE Despite multimodal aggressive treatment glioblastoma patients still face a rather poor prognosis. Recent data indicate that certain molecular markers, in particular MGMT promoter hypermethylation, are associated with response to alkylating chemotherapy and longer survival. The clinical significance of other glioblastoma-associated molecular(More)
Pilocytic astrocytomas (PAs) are the most common glioma in children. Whereas many PAs are slow-growing or clinically indolent, others exhibit more aggressive features with tumor recurrence and death. To identify genetic signatures that might predict PA clinical behavior, we did gene expression profiling on 41 primary PAs arising sporadically and in patients(More)
We investigated the nature of interaction of morphine-3-O-beta-D-glucuronide (M3G) and morphine-6-O-beta-D-glucuronide (M6G) with opioid binding sites at the mu-, delta- and kappa-opioid receptors (mu-OR, delta-OR and kappa-OR) in cerebral membranes. Saturation binding experiments revealed a competitive interaction of M6G with all three opioid receptors.(More)
