Screening tool for late‐effect pediatric neuro‐oncological clinics: A treatment‐oriented questionnaire

ConclusionsThe TOSQ is the first described screening tool for identification of LEs designed specifically for SPBTs. It is simple to use and provides a valid, comprehensive and economic assessment followed by targeted treatment plan for each patient. By repeatedly using the TOSQ over the years, we can improve our ability to detect and give focused treatment to those who require assistance. Pediatr Blood Cancer © 2013 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

Prolonged Survival in Adult Patients with Neurofibromatosis Type I and Recurrent High Grade Gliomas Treated with Bevacizumab (P01.098)

CONCLUSIONS: In this case series, adult patients with recurrent HGGs had prolonged overall and post-recurrence survival. These results suggest bevacizumab may be an effective therapy in NF1 patients with recurrent HGGs. Based on these observations, evaluation of bevacizumab responses in sporadic glioblastomas with NF1 mutations is warranted.Disclosure: Dr. Theeler has nothing to disclose.
