Study Description

Paediatric high grade glioma (pHGG) and diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG) are a phenotypically diverse collection of tumours which molecular profiling studies have refined into age- and location-based subgroups driven by unique genetic and epigenetic alterations. Despite this, the rarity of these tumours means individual studies are underpowered to investigate subgroup-specific changes and to identify low frequency events recurrently targeting specific pathways. We have collated genomic data from 143 unpublished cases up to 30 years of age along with those from 18 previously published datasets in an integrated analysis comprising 1067 unique patients across all anatomical compartments of the CNS, with histone mutation status available for 893 cases (n=67 H3.3G34R/V, n=316 H3.3K27M, n=68 H3.1/H3.2K27M). Distinct clinicopathological and molecular subgroups are defined by these histone mutations, with several novel co-segregating mutations identified through these aggregated analyses, including loss of FBXW7 in H3.3G34R/V, TOP3A rearrangements in H3.3K27M, and BCOR mutations in ...
