into proteins. 20, 31, 59 Transport experiments with FET in F98 rat glioma cells revealed a sodium-dependent transport via system B 0,+ in addition to sodium-independent transport via system L. Thus, the transport characteristics of FET in this cell line were similar to those of MET. 31 In the present study, the mean lesion/brain tissue ratio of FET uptake was significantly greater for gliomas than for nonneoplastic lesions. The sensitivity and specificity of the FET uptake for the distinction of neoplastic and nonneoplastic lesions were 88% and 88%, respectively

✓ Rapid growth and diffuse brain infiltration are hallmarks of malignant gliomas. The underlying molecular pathomechanisms of these tumors, however, remain to be determined. The authors present a novel glioma invasion model that allows researchers to monitor consecutively tumor cell proliferation and migration in an organotypic brain environment. Enhanced green fluorescent protein—labeled F98 rat glioma cells were implanted into slice cultures obtained from a rat hippocampus, and tumor growth was microscopically documented up to 20 days in vitro. Invasion along radially oriented migratory streams could be observed 5 days after implantation of rat F98, human U87MG, and mouse GL261 glioma cells, whereas human Be(2)c neuroblastoma cells and mouse HT22 hippocampal neurons failed to invade the brain parenchyma. Following implantation of F98 glioma cells into the entorhinal cortex, cell death was observed within the infiltrated brain parenchyma as well as in the neuroanatomically connected dentate gyrus. Application of the N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor antagonist MK801 to the culture medium significantly reduced neuronal degeneration in the dentate gyrus, whereas the a-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazole propionate receptor antagonist GYKI 52466 inhibited peritumoral cytotoxicity. This new model allows researchers to address in a systematic manner the molecular pathways of brain invasion as well as specific tumor—host interactions such as necrosis.

confers immunogenic properties to the Tu-9648 and Tu-2449 cell lines as well, because subcutaneous leg inoculations with irradiated Tu-9648 and Tu-2449 cells also protect mice against subsequent intracerebral cell challenge. These results are in sharp contrast to results obtained with the F98 rat glioma cell line, in which similar subcutaneous injections of irradiated cells provided no protection to viable cell challenge (Smilowitz, unpublished results). The results we have obtained with the Tu cell lines are generally similar to the results obtained with the 9L

glioblastoma was mechanically dissociated, passed through a 40-μm filter and transferred into complete neurosphere media, which consisted of serumfree media containing 20 ng/ml EGF and 10 ng/ml FGF-2 and maintained at 37°C and 5% CO 2 . Neurospheres were passaged by trituration and seeded into fresh media; the cultures were serially passaged for more than 25 passages.

. Photomicrographs of an axial section of a rat spinal cord after injection of 100,000 cells. An infiltrative lesion with high cellularity and atypical cells with multiple mitotic figures can be observed. Cellular clustering around dysmorphic vascular channels results in a papillary architecture with diffuse infiltration of gray and white matter and destruction of normal cord structures. H & E. Discussion The 9L and F98 rat glioma cell lines have been used to establish standard brain tumor models in rats that form infiltrative tumors with low immunogenic potential and

/NCT01672463; ). The F98 rat glioma model has a characteristic infiltrative pattern of growth and has qualities associated with human GBM gliomas and is classified as an anaplastic malignant tumor. In this study, after MRI detection of F98 gliomas, in the group of animals that received OKN-007 treatment, it was found that there was significantly increased survival, decreased tumor growth, and decreased tumor volumes. OKN-007 could be considered as a promising therapeutic adjuvant agent or alternative for the treatment of
