Findings presented at the European Organization for Research & Treatment of Cancer (EORTC), European Association of NeuroOncology
(EANO) and European Society for Medical Oncology (ESM0) congress in Istanbul demonstrate that EDO-S101 is effective in models of human glioblastoma irrespective of methyltransferase (MGMT) status and in combination with radiotherapy (RT).
The symposium also comprised parallel sessions on colorectal malignancies, genitourinary and gynaecological malignancies and neurooncology
Prof Gumbleton has teamed up with Professor Geoff Pilkington from Portsmouth University, an internationally recognised and highly regarded scientist in the field of neurooncology
From the Texas A&M College of Medicine (Reddy) and the Departments of Diagnostic Radiology (Saad, Opatowsky), Neurosurgery (Doughty), Pathology (Armstrong), Neurooncology
(Melguizo-Gavilanes), and Radiation Oncology (Cheek), Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas.

Currently, the most common molecular markers in neurooncology
are 1p/19q codeletion in oligodendroglial tumors, mutations in the IDH1/2 genes in diffuse gliomas, hypermethylation of the O6-methylguanine-DNA methyltransferase (MGMT) gene promoter in glioblastomas and anaplastic gliomas, alterations in the EGFR and PTEN genes, and 10q deletions in GBMs, as well as BRAF alterations in pilocytic astrocytomas.

Annual Scientific Meeting and Education Day in Montreal on Nov.
