Repurposing propranolol as an antitumor agent in von Hippel-Lindau disease.

J Neurosurg 2018 Oct 1:1-9. Epub 2018 Oct 1.

1Surgical Neurology Branch, National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Maryland.

OBJECTIVEVon Hippel-Lindau disease (VHL) is a tumor predisposition syndrome characterized by CNS hemangioblastomas (HBs) and clear cell renal cell carcinomas (RCCs) due to hypoxia-inducible factor activation (pseudohypoxia). Because of the lack of effective medical therapies for VHL, HBs and RCCs account for significant morbidity and mortality, ultimately necessitating numerous neurological and renal surgeries. Propranolol is an FDA-approved pan-beta adrenergic antagonist with antitumor effects against infantile hemangiomas (IHs) and possibly VHL HBs. Read More

Risk of radiation-associated intracranial malignancy after stereotactic radiosurgery: a retrospective, multicentre, cohort study.

Lancet Oncol 2019 Jan 22;20(1):159-164. Epub 2018 Nov 22.

Department of Neurosurgery, Laura and Isaac Perlmutter Cancer Center, NYU Langone Health System, New York University, New York, NY, USA. Electronic address:

Background: A major concern of patients who have stereotactic radiosurgery is the long-term risk of having a secondary intracranial malignancy or, in the case of patients with benign tumours treated with the technique, the risk of malignant transformation. The incidence of stereotactic radiosurgery-associated intracranial malignancy remains unknown; therefore, our aim was to estimate it in a population-based study to assess the long-term safety of this technique.

Methods: We did a population-based, multicentre, cohort study at five international radiosurgery centres (Na Homolce Hospital, Prague, Czech Republic [n=2655 patients]; Ruber International Hospital, Madrid, Spain [n=1080], University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Pittsburgh, PA, USA [n=1027]; University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA, USA [n=80]; and NYU Langone Health System, New York, NY, USA [n=63]).

Bilateral Pheochromocytomas in a Patient with Y175C Von Hippel-Lindau Mutation.

Case Rep Endocrinol 2018 10;2018:8967159. Epub 2018 Jul 10.

Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism, Department of Medicine, University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry, Rochester, New York 14642, USA.

Von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) disease, caused by germline mutations in the gene, is characterized by metachronously occurring tumors including pheochromocytoma, renal cell carcinoma (RCC), and hemangioblastoma. Although VHL disease leads to reduced life expectancy, its diagnosis is often missed and tumor screening guidelines are sparse. VHL protein acts as a tumor suppressor by targeting hypoxia-inducible factors (HIFs) for degradation through an oxygen-dependent mechanism. Read More

Pregnancy-induced growth of a spinal hemangioblastoma: presumed mechanisms and their implications for therapeutic approaches.

Int J Womens Health 2018 21;10:325-328. Epub 2018 Jun 21.

Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics, University Hospital of Brasilia, University of Brasília, Brasília, Brazil.

Hemangioblastomas are benign tumors of the central nervous system (CNS) that may occur either sporadically or as part of von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) disease, in which they coexist with a series of other tumors outside the CNS. Because of their low mitosis rate, hemangioblastomas usually have slow-growing and late manifestations, but may cause sudden neurological symptoms if tumor hemorrhage occurs. Few studies have evaluated the impact of pregnancy on the evolution of hemangioblastomas. Read More

a Department of Urology , Institute of Surgery Research, Daping Hospital, Third Military Medical University , Chongqing 400042 , PR China.

Von Hippel-Landau (VHL) disease is characterized by malignant and benign tumors in multiple organs. Sunitinib, a tyrosine kinase inhibitor, has been clinically available for treating sporadic patients with recurrent or unresectable and metastatic clear renal cell carcinomas (cRCCs) and metastatic lesions of the lung, but its effect on VHL disease-associated tumors remains poorly understood. This retrospective case series examined the effect of sunitinib on RCC, hemangioblastomas, pheochromocytomas, and pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors in patients with confirmed VHL. Read More
