Astrocytomas are among the most common tumors of the central nervous system and are classified according to the degree of malignancy from I to IV, considering histological and genetic alterations of the tumor. The grade IV or glioblastoma (GBM) is the most frequent and malignant and standard treatment consists on tumor surgical resection followed by radiotherapy and chemotherapy with te...
Lysyl oxidase (LOX) is involved in vital biological processes such as cell motility, cell signaling and gene regulation. Deregulation of this protein can contribute to tumor formation and progression. Although it is known that LOX is involved in invasion, proliferation and tumor migration in other types of tumors, studies of LOX in astrocytomas of different grades are scarce. The purpos...
OBJECTIVES: We investigated four components of the Wnt signaling pathway in medulloblastomas.BACKGROUND: Medulloblastoma is the most common malignant pediatric brain tumor. Wnt signaling is one of the activated signaling pathways in this kind of tumors. METHODS: Sixty one medulloblastoma cases were analyzed for b-catenin gene (CTNNB1) mutation, b-catenin protein immunostaining and expre...

Astrocytomas are of astrocytic tumors involving cells of the central nervous system and are the most frequent among gliomas tumors (tumors associated with glial cells). In the United States they take up 34% of all morphologic subtypes of gliomas and Brazil are also the most common, affecting mainly men. The World Health Organization classifies astrocytomas according to their malignancy,...
Astrocytomas are between the most common tumors of the central nervous system. According to the World Health Organization, they are classified giving their degree of malignancy in a scale of I to IV and their histological and genetic tumor changes. The grade IV or glioblastoma (GBM) is the most common and malignant. The standard treatment consists of surgical resection of the tumor foll...
