Administration of autologous HER2-specific CAR-modified virus specific T Cells was safe and had clinical benefit for some patients with progressive glioblastoma, a disease with limited effective therapeutic options.

This video examines current research on the use of vaccines in low-grade glioma for the prevention of high-grade disease.

Cytomegalovirus targeted vaccination plus high-dose chemotherapy with temozolomide can lead to long-term progression-free and overall survival in patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma.

This video examines how a specific combination of KIR/KIR-ligand genotypes in high-risk neuroblastoma patients may be predictive of outcomes when adding dinutuximab to isotretinoin.

Elderly patients with glioblastoma had longer survival when temozolomide was added to short-course radiotherapy compared with undergoing short-course radiotherapy alone.

In this article we discuss the specifics of refining current strategies for radiation delivery, as well as new and up-and-coming heavy particle techniques and radiotherapeutics.

Minimizing late treatment toxicities in these patients remains an important priority due to both the young age of the patients and the high cure rate that can be achieved.

The addition of an autologous tumor derived–heat shock protein vaccination to standard therapy may improve outcomes for patients with glioblastoma.

A study showed that testing pediatric brain tumors for genetic abnormalities is feasible and could play a role in guiding patients’ treatment.

Brain metastases from primary breast cancer tumors often acquire clinically actionable genetic alterations, according to a small study. About one fifth of ERBB2/HER2-negative cases switched to HER2-positivity in the brain metastases.
