Real-Time, in Vivo Correlation of Molecular Structure with Drug Distribution in the Brain Striatum Following Convection Enhanced Delivery

The blood-brain barrier (BBB) represents a major obstacle in delivering therapeutics to brain lesions. Convection-enhanced delivery (CED), a method that bypasses the BBB through direct, cannula-mediated drug delivery, is one solution to maintaining increased, effective drug concentration at these lesions. CED was recently proven safe in a phase I clinical trial against diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG), a childhood cancer.

A Personalized Approach for Pediatric Brain Tumor Patients

Dr. Prajwal Rajappa, Weill Cornell Medicine

Dr. Prajwal Rajappa coordinates Dr. Greenfield’s innovative program, in which every pediatric brain tumor patient operated on is offered genomic sequencing and a targeted medicine consultation as part of their standard of care.

Twenty-Year Outcome Experience With Open Craniosynostosis Repairs: An Analysis of Reoperation and Complication Rates

Twenty-Year Outcome Experience With Open Craniosynostosis Repairs: An Analysis of Reoperation and Complication Rates

Surgical intervention during infancy for both syndromic and nonsyndromic patients with craniosynostosis remains the criterion standard of treatment with the 2 main options being open vault remodeling versus minimally invasive surgery. Although open cranial vault remodeling was initially considered a high-risk procedure, many advances have improved its safety. Despite this, there is a paucity of literature on the long-term outcomes of contemporary open craniosynostosis repair.

Dr. Souweidane’s Phase 1 Trial Findings Published in Lancet Oncology

Mark M Souweidane, MD, Weill Cornell Medicine

Today, the peer-reviewed journal Lancet Oncology published the highly anticipated results of Dr. Mark Souweidane’s first-ever dose escalation study using convection-enhanced delivery (CED) in patients with diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG). The milestone Phase I clinical trial, which investigated the safety of using CED to bypass the blood-brain barrier and administer a drug directly to a brain stem tumor site, resulted in no serious adverse effects and no dose-limiting toxicity; researchers conclude that the technique is safe to use in children.
