Jun 7 2019

Professor of Ghent University and Lead Researcher at the Institute of Biology and Biomedicine of the Lobachevsky University Dmitri Krysko together with scientists from Germany, Professor Marcus Conrad and Professor Jose Pedro Friedmann Angeli recently published an article in the journal Nature Reviews Cancer, one of the highest-rated journals that occupies the 2nd line in the oncology section among 223 journals in this category and has an impact factor of 42.78 according to WoS data.

Targeting immune cells could potentially treat some kinds of brain tumor, study suggests
Jun 4 2019

Tumors arise when cells shake off their restraints and start to multiply out of control. But how fast a tumor grows does not depend solely on how quickly the cancer cells can divide, a new study has found.

Cancer stem cells adapt to environmental conditions and undergo reversible transformations
May 25 2019

Until now, researchers have assumed that the growth of solid tumors originates from cancer stem cells characterized by specific surface markers, which develop in a fixed, hierarchical order.

Low-dose radiation therapy may increase uptake of therapeutic nanoparticles by brain tumors
Mar 28 2019

A new study led by Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) investigators finds that radiation therapy may increase the uptake of therapeutic nanoparticles by glioblastomas, raising the possibility of using both growth-factor-targeted and immune-system-based therapies against the deadly brain tumor.

Hellenic Neuro-Οncology Group

Department of Neurosurgery University of Athens, Evangelismos Hospital


Worldwide patients with tumors of the central nervous system are treated initially by groups of Physicians of different specialties (MDT - Multi-Disciplinary Team) which are responsible for patient management from the beginning (diagnosis) to the end (treatment and rehabilitation ).

The University Neurosurgery Clinic of Evangelismos Public Hospital has a long history in the treatment of CNS tumors, with more than five thousand cases over the last 60 years. Taking advantage of this experience we proceeded to create a modern Neuro-oncology team composed of doctors from different disciplines with a common object: tumors of the Central Nervous System. The selection criteria of the members for the team staffing was based on their scientific background and their experience in the field of CNS tumors.

Scientific partners and specialized physicians of all these disciplines analyze each newly diagnosed case, progressing in defining, planning and conducting the necessary laboratory tests to identify the tumor (site, size, histological and molecular profile). Then on the basis of data obtained for each patient, they plan and propose, tailoring the best combination treatment (surgery, radiotherapy, radiosurgery, chemotherapy). Finally they monitor patients with clinical-laboratory tests, record their progress and support their recovery.

The Neuro-Oncology group we set up, composed of doctors from different hospitals, university, Public Health System and military medical doctors, who initially having completed the part of basic studies of their specialties and then they were trained in international hospitals and universities in the object of CNS tumors.

The excellent cooperation and exchange between team members, the integrity of their knowledge because of their expertise in the subject, and finally the scientific cooperation with European Neuro-Oncology groups, are the basis for most modern and effective management of patients with CNS tumors in Greece .

The research part of the team is in constant evolution with numerous papers in scientific conferences and publications in scientific journals. Research for diagnosis and treatment protocols are in progress, while new are planned and discussed by members of the group, in order to improve the therapeutic effect and simultaneous to improve the quality of life.
