Study Description

Paediatric High Grade Gliomas (pHGG) are defined by unique, specific and highly recurrent mutations in genes encoding histone H3 variants which mark robust subgroups with distinct age of onset, anatomical distribution, clinical outcome, histopathological and radiological features. We have used whole exome sequencing to identify the main recurrent somatic mutations occurring within pHGG including H3 histones and the coincident mutations and DNA copy number events in order to classify clinically relevant subgroups and the molecular events within them as new targets for therapy. Analysis of sequenced cases revealed multiple tumour subclones, spatially and temporally co-existing in a stable manner as observed by multiple sampling strategies.

The failure to develop effective therapies for paediatric glioblastoma (pGBM) and diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG) is in part due to their intrinsic heterogeneity. Analysis of 142 sequenced cases revealed multiple tumour subclones, spatially and temporally co-existing in a stable manner as observed by multiple sampling strategies. This dataset provides multi region sequencing of high grade gliomas and diffuse intrinsic pontine gliomas from 15 patients. DNA was extracted from FFPE ... (Show More)
