      di Tomaso, E.; Snuderl, M.; Kamoun, W. S.; Duda, Dan Gabriel; Auluck, P. K.; Fazlollahi, L.; Andronesi, Ovidiu C; Frosch, Matthew P.; Wen, Patrick Yung Chih; Plotkin, Scott Randall; Hedley-Whyte, E. Tessa; Sorensen, A; Batchelor, Tracy Todd; Jain, Radhika (American Association for Cancer Research (AACR), 2011)
      Recurrent glioblastomas (rGBM) invariably relapse after initial response to anti-VEGF therapy. There are two prevailing hypotheses on how these tumors escape antiangiogenic therapy: switch to VEGF-independent angiogenic ...
    • Increased Mobilisation of Circulating Endothelial Progenitors in von Hippel-Lindau Disease and Renal Cell Carcinoma 

      Zurita, A J; Norden-Zfoni, A; George, D; Heymach, J V; Bhatt, Rupal Satish; O'Neill, Allison Frances; Zhang, Liang; Wu, H.K.; Wen, Patrick Yung Chih; Sukhatme, Vikas Pandurang; Atkins, M.B. (Nature Publishing Group, 2011)
      Background: Circulating endothelial cells (CECs) are a candidate biomarker for monitoring angiogenesis in cancer. Circulating endothelial cell subsets are mobilised by angiogenic mediators. Because of the highly angiogenic ...
    • MAPK activation and HRAS mutation identified in pituitary spindle cell oncocytoma 

      Miller, Michael B.; Bi, Wenya Linda; Ramkissoon, Lori A.; Kang, Yun Jee; Abedalthagafi, Malak; Knoff, David S.; Agarwalla, Pankaj K.; Wen, Patrick Y.; Reardon, David A.; Alexander, Brian M.; Laws, Edward R.; Dunn, Ian F.; Beroukhim, Rameen; Ligon, Keith L.; Ramkissoon, Shakti H. (Impact Journals LLC, 2016)
      Pituitary spindle cell oncocytoma (SCO) is an uncommon primary pituitary neoplasm that presents with mass effect on adjacent neurovascular structures, similar to non-hormone-producing pituitary adenomas. To determine the ...
    • Morphological Characteristics of Brain Tumors Causing Seizures 

      Lee, Jong Woo; Wen, Patrick Yung Chih; Hurwitz, Shelley; Black, Peter McLaren; Kesari, Santosh; Drappatz, Jan; Golby, Alexandra Jacqueline; Wells, William Mercer; Warfield, Simon Keith; Kikinis, Ron; Bromfield, Edward B. (American Medical Association (AMA), 2010)
      Objective: To quantify size and localization differences between tumors presenting with seizures vs nonseizure neurological symptoms. Design: Retrospective imaging survey. We performed magnetic resonance imaging–based ...
    • Outcomes after discontinuation of antiepileptic drugs after surgery in patients with low grade brain tumors and meningiomas 

      Das, Rohit R.; Artsy, Elinor; Hurwitz, Shelley; Wen, Patrick Yung Chih; Black, Peter McLaren; Golby, Alexandra Jacqueline; Dworetzky, Barbara Ann; Lee, Jong Woo (Springer Nature, 2012)
      Low grade tumors are associated with a high risk of seizures. Prolonged use of antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) is associated with morbidity. Determining which patients can safely discontinue AEDs perioperatively is difficult. ...
    • Phase I trial with biomarker studies of vatalanib (PTK787) in patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma treated with enzyme inducing anti-epileptic drugs and standard radiation and temozolomide
