Meningeal Lymphatic Network: A New Avenue in the Treatment of Brain Tumors

Glioblastomas are the most common type of brain tumor, and their prognosis is often highly unfavorable. A collaborative study by Jean-Léon Thomas, Inserm researcher at the Brain & Spine Institute (Inserm/CNRS/Sorbonne Université) and Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital AP-HP, and Akiko Iwasaki (Department of Immunology, Yale University School of Medicine, USA), has revealed the beneficial role played by the meningeal lymphatic vascular network in treating these tumors – in the short and longer term.

“Brain Map” paves the way for Personalized Medicine

Using cerebral imaging, connections between the various brain regions can be visualized. These connections form a veritable “map” of its structure, specific to each individual. Knowledge of these “maps” is enough to predict not just brain function but also the potential development and treatment of neurological diseases.

Imagerie de billes fluorescentes sont filmées à très haute vitesse,

Circulating tumor cells use the blood and lymphatic networks to disseminate within the body, forming metastases distant from the primary tumor. Inserm researcher Jacky Goetz and his Tumor Biomechanics team at the Molecular ImmunoRheumatology laboratory (Inserm/Université de Strasbourg) have helped to show that the flow properties of these biological fluids have a huge influence on the risk of developing metastases.

Les risques de complication de l’obésité dépendraient avant tout de la composition du tissu adipeux

Se reposer uniquement sur la quantité de masse grasse semble constituer une approche trop réductrice pour prédire efficacement le risque de complications métaboliques et cardiovasculaires associées à l’obésité. L’équipe Inserm de Laurent Lagrost (Inserm UMR1231 “Lipides, nutrition, cancer”, Université de Bourgogne-Franche-Comté, Dijon) montre que, chez la souris, c’est la composition du tissu adipeux, et non sa quantité, qui est associée à l’espérance de vie.
