Glioma clinical trials report from VPA Research provides comprehensive analysis and trends in global Glioma disease clinical trials. The research work analyzes the evolution of Glioma clinical trial trends across countries and regions.

The report focuses on drugs and therapies being evaluated for Glioma treatment in active clinical development phases including phase 1, phase 2, phase 3 and phase 4 clinical trials. The report also provides trials information by region, key countries, phases, trial status and sponsor types.

Our experienced database team dynamically updates the clinical trials data from several sources including Clinical trial registries, conferences, journals and company releases etc. Further, data is presented in user friendly manner offering quick access to Glioma clinical trials.

Major drugs under development in Glioma are provided in the report along with their details of Mechanism of Action, Route of Administration, Target, therapy, molecule and class.

Glioma- The condition occurs when the glial cells in the brain are affected and account for around one-third of all brain tumors. On the basis of location, these are classified as supratentorial (above tentorium) and infratentorial (below tenotrium).

On the basis of pace of development, these are categorized as Low grade (grades 1 and 2) and high grade (3 and 4). Treatment options vary with the grade of the disease, but most often it includes a combination of medicine, surgery, radiation and chemo therapies.

Malignant Glioma- Malignant Glioma is the most regular subtypes of glioma condition occurring in patients aged between 60 and 80. The condition is classified as grade 3 and grade 4, which comprises anaplastic high-grade gliomas and glioblastomas respectively.

High Grade Glioma- Malignant or high-grade glioma tumors are categorized as Grade 3 and Grade 4. Of this Grade 3 tumor types include-
Anaplastic astrocytoma- The rare disease type comprises an estimated one-third of all astrocytoma types. Often observed in older persons, the condition can occur in any aged person. Astrocytoma emerges from star shaped cells in the brain, called astrocytes.

Anaplastic oligodendroglioma- It is a rare type of malignant tumor occurring mainly between 45 and 50 years of age. They possess abnormal genetic material and unique molecular, clinical, and histological characteristics and are important to diagnose.

Anaplastic oligoastrocytoma- Oligoastrocytoma occurs when either oligodendrocytes and astrocytes or both grow rapidly, causing formation of tumors in the brain. The term ‘Anaplastic’ refers to condition when tumor can spread into nearby tissues. They occur in Cerebrum area.

Anaplastic ependymoma- The fast growing subtype occurs primarily in posterior fossa part. The tumor cells show rapid growth pace and are associated with a less favorable prognosis and have higher possibility to infiltrate around the brain or disseminate into cerebrospinal fluid resulting in drop metastases.

Glioblastoma- The grade 4 type condition is further classified as primary and secondary types. The primary subtype occurs without earlier diagnosis of low grade tumors while the secondary type arouses from development of grade 2 or 3 subtypes. Tumor occurs as a result of accumulation of different mutations.

Pontine Gliomas- Diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG) is an aggressive type of malignant glioma, arising from glioma tissue. As these are observed in the bottom area of the brain, they are tough to be treated. It is observed mostly in children.

Low Grade Glioma (LGGs) or often referred to as Grade-1 and 2 tumors, arouse from brain cells including astrocytes and oligodendrocytes. Causing mild and large seizures, the Glioma type is treated through a combination of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation on the basis of disease condition. The condition is primarily observed in young and healthy individuals. Compared to high grade Glioma, these patients survive for long periods and lead quality life as this is a slow growth disease.

On the basis of appearance under microscope and genetic modifications, Low grade gliomas are classified as-
Pilocytic astrocytomas — Observed in adults aging less than 25 and progresses very slowly compared to other types

Diffuse astrocytomas — Most observed subtype of low-grade glioma. Late 30’s individuals are the most affected age. Type of modification in IDH isocitrate-dehydrogenase gene determines the sub-types of Diffuse astrocytomas.

Oligodendrogliomas — Slow growing tumors, having mutation in the IDH gene in terms of missing 1p and 19q chromosomes.

Gangliogliomas — Posesses both gliomas and tumor related characteristics
