Study Description

Similar to their adult counterparts, the prognosis for pediatric patients with high-grade gliomas remains poor. At time of recurrence, treatment options are limited and remain without consensus. This report describes the genetic findings, obtained from whole exome sequencing of a pediatric patient with glioblastoma who underwent multiple surgical resections and treatment with standard chemoradiation, as well as a novel recombinant poliovirus vaccine therapy. Strikingly, despite the variety of treatments, there was persistence of a tumor clone, characterized by a deleterious STAG2 mutation, whose deficiency in pre-clinical studies can cause aneuploidy and aberrant mitotic progression, but remains understudied in the clinical setting. There was near elimination of an EGFR mutated and amplified tumor clone after gross total resection, standard chemoradiation, and poliovirus therapy, followed by the emergence of a persistently STAG2 mutated clone, with rare mutations in PTPN11 and BRAF, the latter composed of a novel deleterious mutation previously not reported in pediatric glioblastoma ...

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
This case represented the genomic findings of a pediatric glioblastoma patient who underwent multiple surgical resections and treated with standard chemoradiation, as well as a novel recombinant poliovirus vaccine therapy. The results present the preservation of a STAG2 mutated clone, besides elimination and emergence of other clones with oncogenic mutations through disease progression under different treatment modalities. Although STAG2 deficiency comprises only a small subset of gliomas, this ... (Show More)
