Neoplasms of the Spinal Cord and Filum Terminale: Radiologic-Pathologic Correlation

Intramedullary spinal cord neoplasms are rare, accounting for about 4%10% of all central nervous system tumors. Despite their rarity, these lesions are important to the radiologist because magnetic resonance (MR) imaging is the preoperative study of choice to narrow the differential diagnosis and guide surgical resection. On contrast materialenhanced MR images, intramedullary spinal tumors almost always manifest as expansion of the spinal cord and show enhancement. Syringohydromyelia and cystic lesions are frequently associated with intramedullary tumors. Nontumoral cysts tend to be located at the poles of the tumors...

Targeting Human Glioblastoma Cells: Comparison of Nine Viruses with Oncolytic Potential

 Brain tumors classified as glioblastomas have proven refractory to treatment and generally result in death within a year of diagnosis. We used seven in vitro tests and one in vivo trial to compare the efficacy of nine different viruses for targeting human glioblastoma. Green fluorescent protein (GFP)-expressing vesicular stomatitis (VSV), Sindbis virus, pseudorabies virus (PRV), adeno-associated virus (AAV), and minute virus of mice i-strain (MVMi) and MVMp all infected glioblastoma cells. Mouse and human cytomegalovirus, and simian virus 40 showed only low levels of infection or GFP expression. VSV and Sindbis virus ...
