Inflammation and immunoreaction markers were correlated with the survival of patients in many tumors. However, there were no reports investigating the relationships between preoperative hematological markers and the prognosis of medulloblastoma (MB) patients based on the molecular subgroups (WNT, SHH, Group 3, and Group 4). A total 144 MB patients were enrolled in the study. The differences of preoperative hematological markers among molecular subgroups of MB were compared by One-way ANOVA method. Kaplan-Meier method was used to calculate the curves of progression free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS). The comparison of survival rates in different groups were conducted by the Log-rank test. Multivariate analysis was used to evaluate independent prognostic factors. Increased preoperative NLR (neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio, PFS, P = 0.004, OS, P < 0.001) and PLR (platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio, PFS, P = 0.028, OS, P = 0.003) predicted poor prognosis in patients with MB, while preoperative MLR (monocyte-to-lymphocyte ratio), MPV (mean platelet volume), PDW (platelet distribution width), and AGR (albumin-to-globulin ratio) were revealed no predictive value on the prognosis of patients with MB. Furthermore, high preoperative NLR and PLR predicted unfavorable prognosis in childhood MB patients. However, preoperative NLR and PLR were not associated with the prognosis in adult MB patients. Multivariate analysis demonstrated preoperative NLR (PFS, P = 0.029, OS, P = 0.005) and PLR (PFS, P = 0.023, OS, P = 0.005) were the independent prognostic factors in MB patients. Emphatically, the levels of preoperative NLR and PLR in Group 3 MB were significantly higher than those in WNT MB. High preoperative NLR was associated with unfavorable OS in Group 3 (P = 0.032) and Group 4 (P = 0.027) tumors. Similarly, increased preoperative PLR predicted poor PFS (P = 0.012) and OS (P = 0.009) in Group 4 tumors. Preoperative NLR and PLR were the potential prognostic markers for MB patients. Preoperative NLR and PLR were significantly associated with the survival of Group 3 and Group 4 tumors.

The prediction of clinical outcome for patients with infiltrative gliomas is challenging. Although preoperative hematological markers have been proposed as predictors of survival in glioma and other cancers, systematic investigations that combine these data with other relevant clinical variables are needed to improve prognostic accuracy and patient outcomes. We investigated the prognostic value of preoperative hematological markers, alone and in combination with molecular pathology, for the survival of 592 patients with Grade II-IV diffuse gliomas. On univariate analysis, increased neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio (PLR), and monocyte-to-lymphocyte ratio (MLR), and decreased albumin-to-globulin ratio (AGR), all predicted poor prognosis in Grade II/III gliomas. Multivariate analysis incorporating tumor status based on the presence of IDH mutations, TERT promoter mutations, and 1p/19q codeletion showed that in lower-grade gliomas, high NLR predicted poorer survival for the triple-negative, IDH mutation only, TERT mutation only, and IDH and TERT mutation groups. NLR was an independent prognostic factor in Grade IV glioma. We therefore propose a prognostic model for diffuse gliomas based on the presence of IDH and TERT promoter mutations, 1p/19q codeletion, and NLR. This model classifies lower-grade gliomas into nine subgroups that can be combined into four main risk groups based on survival projections.

During neurological surgery, neurosurgeons have to transform the two-dimensional (2D) sectional images into three-dimensional (3D) structures at the cognitive level. The complexity of the intracranial structures increases the difficulty and risk of neurosurgery. Mixed reality (MR) applications reduce the obstacles in the transformation from 2D images to 3D visualization of anatomical structures of central nervous system. In this study, the holographic image was established by MR using computed tomography (CT), computed tomography angiography (CTA) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data of patients. The surgeon's field of vision was superimposed with the 3D model of the patient's intracranial structure displayed on the mixed reality head-mounted display (MR-HMD). The neurosurgeons practiced and evaluated the feasibility of this technique in neurosurgical cases. We developed the segmentation image masks and texture mapping including brain tissue, intracranial vessels, nerves, tumors, and their relative positions by MR technologies. The results showed that the three-dimensional imaging is in a stable state in the operating room with no significant flutter and blur. And the neurosurgeon's feedback on the comfort of the equipment and the practicality of the technology was satisfactory. In conclusion, MR technology can holographically construct a 3D digital model of patient's lesions and improve the anatomical perception of neurosurgeons during craniotomy. The feasibility of the MR-HMD application in neurosurgery is confirmed.

Glioma is the most common malignant tumor in the central nervous system (CNS). Lower-grade gliomas (LGG) refer to Grade II and III gliomas. In LGG patients, seizure often appears as an initial symptom and play an important role in clinical performance and quality of life of the patients. To date, the relationship between the onset of seizures and the molecular pathology in gliomas is still poorly investigated. In this study, we investigate the potential relationship between isocitrate dehydrogenase (IDH)/telomerase reverse transcriptase promoter (TERTp) mutations and preoperative seizures in patients with LGG. 289 adult LGG patients were enrolled in this study. Data of clinical characteristics and molecular pathology were acquired. Sanger sequencing was used to detect IDH/TERTp mutations. Chi-square test was performed to determine if the IDH/TERTp mutations were associated with seizures and seizure types. In 289 LGG patients, preoperative seizures accounted for 25.3% (73/289), IDH mutations accounted for 34.3%(99/289), and TERTp mutations accounted for 44.3% (128/289). The correlation analysis demonstrated that IDH mutation is a significant factor influencing the occurrence of tumor-related epilepsy (P <.001, chi-square test). On the other hand, the statistical analysis revealed no significant correlation between TERTp mutations and seizure in LGG patients (P = .102, chi-square test). The tumor-related epilepsy rates vary among different subgroups according to IDH/TERTp mutations. However, there is no definite correlation between the IDH (P = 1.000, chi-square test)/TERTp (P = .613, chi-square test) mutations and the types of epileptic seizure. IDH mutations are more common in preoperative LGG patients with epileptic symptoms, suggesting that this mutation is positively correlated with seizures. However, there was no significant correlation between TERTp mutations and seizures. Different molecular pathologic types based on IDH/TERTp have different incidences of tumor-associated epilepsy in LGGs.

BACKGROUND/AIMS: CDH18 (cadherin 18) is specifically expressed in the central nervous system and associated with various neuropsychiatric disorders. In this study, the role of CDH18 in glioma carcinogenesis and progression was investigated. METHODS: The expression of CDH18 and its prognostic value in patients with gliomas were analyzed in public database and validated by real-time PCR/immunohistochemical staining (IHC) in our cohort. CCK-8 assay, transwell migration assay, wound healing assay, clonogenic assay and tumorigenicity assay were used to compare the proliferation, invasion and migration ability of glioma cells with different expressions of CDH18. iTRAQ-based quantitative proteomic analysis were used to reveal the downstream target of CDH18. Rescue experiments were conducted to further validate the relationship between UQCRC2 and CDH18. RESULTS: The expression of CDH18 was depressed in a ladder-like pattern from normal tissues to WHO IV gliomas, and was an independent prognostic factor in TCGA (The Cancer Genome Atlas), CGGA (the Chinese glioma genome-atlas) and our glioma cohorts (n=453). Functional experiments in vitro and in vivo demonstrated that CDH18 inhibited invasion/migration, enhanced chemoresistance and suppressed tumorigenicity of glioma cells. UQCRC2 was identified as the downstream target of CDH18 by proteomic analysis. The expression of UQCRC2 was gradually absent as the WHO grades of gliomas escalated and was positively correlated with the expression of CDH18. Furthermore, in vitro assays demonstrated that down-regulation of UQCRC2 partly reversed the inhibition of invasion/migration ability and chemoresistance in CDH18 overexpressed glioma cell lines. Survival analysis demonstrated that combined CDH18/UQCRC2 biomarkers significantly influenced the prognosis of glioma patients. CONCLUSIONS: The present research demonstrated that CDH18 exerted its tumor-suppressor role via UQCRC2 in glioma cells and CDH18 might serve as a therapeutic target for treating gliomas.

OBJECTIVE: To study the application of three-dimensional reconstruction technique based on CT-MRI fusion in skull base surgery. METHODS: To acquire the thin layer CT scan and MRI scanned images, to achieve image registration, fusion, segmentation and 3D visualization by using self-preparation software, to operate, observe and measure models by using methods of endoscopic observation, volume rendering segmentation, automatically and manually measure. RESULTS: The center of the eye and foramen magnum in CT-MRI were used as point registration. Good coincidence of important anatomic landmarks were formed in the image fusion. The boundary of spotted graphical was clear and complete. The models showed a complete, continuous, smooth surface. Virtual endoscopy could display the inside three-dimensional structures of skull from nasal with fluent operations of rotation and transparency. The boundary of skull stump segmented after volume rendering segmentation was clear and smooth, and it could show bone signs and soft tissue models together. Cooperation of automatic measurement method [(32.007 ± 15.311) mm] and the manual measurement method [(30.240 ± 15.169) mm] for measuring the maximum diameters of the tumor model, the difference was significant (t = 8.409, P < 0.05). CONCLUSIONS: The method of selecting the center of the eye and foramen magnum in point matching is scientific, simple and easy to operate. The models reconstructed based on CT-MRI fusion images can accurately reflect the size of the soft tissue and be better measured through the automatic measurement. Reconstruction models can be observed through the way of virtual endoscopic within the nasal cavity or volume rendering segmentation from outside to inside to frustrate the relationship of skull structures. Three-dimensional reconstruction techniques based on CT-MRI fusion in skull base surgery can be used to plan surgical approach, to assess the risk of surgery and to achieve space measurements, and it laid the foundation for the three-dimensional navigation.
