Thanks to the ongoing support of our community, A Kids’ Brain Tumor Cure has been able to help fund a variety of PLGG research projects including the following highlighted in several recent journal publications:

Overcoming resistance to single-agent therapy for oncogenic BRAF gene fusions via combinatorial targeting of MAPK and PI3K/mTOR signaling pathways; Date: September 15th, 2017

CRAF gene fusions in pediatric low-grade gliomas define a distinct drug response based on dimerization profiles; Date: August 14, 2017

Pediatric low-grade gliomas: next biologically driven steps; Date: August 2017 

 

We are confident that with continued funding for targeted research and dedicated researchers like these, rapid advancements in the field will result in more effective treatments and a cure for children battling all forms of brain tumors. Congratulations to these researchers who are making a difference!
