Molecular Alterations in Ependymomas Especially in Children
Project management at the University of Würzburg:
At present, age at diagnosis, extend of resection, and proliferation indices seem to be significant prognostic factors in this disease. Little is known regarding the molecular genetic alteration underlying the formation and progression of ependymomas. In our investigation using 48 polymorphic microsatellite markers in 35 cases most frequent LOH was found on chromosome 6, 9 and 22.
