Gliomas in patients with acquired immune deficiency syndrome

, : Gliomas in patients with acquired immune deficiency syndrome. Cancer (philadelphia). 74(7): -1914

Background: Ten percent of patients with acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) have intracerebral mass lesions of which the majority are due either to toxoplasmosis or primary central nervous system lymphomas. Methods: Three patients with AIDS presented with solitary intracerebral mass lesions and were found by pathologic examination to have gliomas. Results: After surgery, all patients were treated with radiotherapy and procarbazine, comustine, and vincristine multiagent chemotherapy. Median follow-up is 12 months. Conclusions: Occasionally, patients with AIDS and intracerebral mass lesions have primary nonlymphomatous brain tumors, an occurrence not related clearly to underlying immunoincompetence.

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are short noncoding RNAs ( 22 nt) that play important roles in the pathogenesis of human diseases by negatively regulating gene expression. Here, we examined the relationship between miR-196a and gastric cancer. By the analysis...
