Antonio Ruggiero, Anna Ariano, Silvia Triarico, Michele Antonio Capozza, Alberto Romano, Palma Maurizi, Stefano Mastrangelo, Giorgio Attinà,

Despite advances in the treatment of brain tumors, the prognosis of children with recurrent malignant brain tumors remains poor. Etoposide (VP-16), an inhibitor of nuclear enzyme deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA)-topoisomerase II, has shown activity in brain tumors. Its efficacy appears schedule dependent but, to date, the most effective schedule of administration ... Read more >>
