Three molecularly defined clusters could alter practice; 1 closely resembles deadly glioblastoma Comprehensive genomic analysis of low-grade brain tumors sorts them into three categories, one of which has the molecular hallmarks and shortened survival of glioblastoma multiforme, the most lethal of brain tumors, researchers reported at the American Association for Cancer Research Annual Meeting 2014. "The immediate clinical implication is that a group of patients with tumors previously...

Genetically engineered mouse model validates the mutant IDH2 protein as candidate for targeted anticancer therapies; provides new tool for future investigations In recent years, mutations in two metabolic enzymes, isocitrate dehydrogenase-1 and 2 (IDH1 and IDH2), have been identified in approximately 20 percent of all acute myeloid leukemias (AML). As a result, mutant IDH proteins have been proposed as attractive drug targets for this common form of adult leukemia. Now a scientific team...
