According to the report analysis, ‘Pilocytic Astrocytoma Global Clinical Trials Review, H1, 2018’ suggests that some of the major companies and health care organization are functioning for reduce the stress of the people who are the victims of pilocytic astrocytoma which includes Novartis AG, Takeda Pharmaceuticals Co Ltd, Oncovir Inc, Johnson & Johnson, F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd, E. Merck KG, Burzynski Research Institue Inc, AstraZeneca. Plc AbbVie Inc, Novartis, Abbott Laboratories, Celgene Corporation, Daiichi Sankyo Company, Cancer Research UK, North Central Cancer Group, GE healthcare, Duke University, Mayo Clinic, Fred Hutchison Cancer Research Center, Bayer AG, Eisai Inc, Columbia University, Copharos Inc., Wyeth Pharmaceuticals Inc., Daiichi Sankyo Company, Eli and Lilly and Company, Celgene Corporation, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Ohio State University, University Of Pennsylvania and others. Not only has this, so many government organizations are doing researches and development and performing new innovations to provide resources for helping in learn about medical research and ways to get involved.
Pilocytic astrocytoma is a brain tumor that mostly occurs in children and young adults. It usually occur near the brainstem, arise in the cerebellum, in the region of hypothalamic, but they may occur in any area where astrocytes are present, including the spinal cord and the cerebral hemispheres. Pilocytic astrocytoma is not of varies from person to person, but the people often experience the various types of symptoms such as children are affected by pilocytic astrocytoma can present with different symptoms that include weight loss, irritability, vomiting, headache, appropriate weight gain and others. Not only has this, the symptoms vary depending upon the size and location of tumor. Whereas, the underlying cause of pilocytic astrocytoma is unknown. With neurofibromatosis type 1, tuberous sclerosis, Li-Fraumeni syndrome, it largely occurs in children and young adults and in other people. Most of the research and developments by the organizations and vending players those who are making the medicines related to cure the pilocytic astrocytoma, helps us better to understand the disease.
Many care centers and health organizations are working for the cure of pilocytic astrocytoma based upon a clinical evaluation and a variety of specialized test, including various imaging techniques such as MRI (Magnetic resonance imaging) and CT computerized tomography (CT). Moreover, the diagnosis of pilocytic astrocytoma may be confirmed by surgical removal and microscopic evaluation of the tissue from the tumor. In many cases, the microscopic evaluation may not be performed because of the location of the tumor as the tumor is located in the brainstem or optic pathway. In addition, the pilocytic astrocytoma treatment market is spread across the Asia-Pacific, Europe, North America, Central and South America. Basically, the main form of treatment for pilocytic astrocytoma is surgical excision and removal of tumor as much as possible. In the certain cases the tumor can be completely removed through surgery. It is generally considered to be curative.
The use of radiation therapy for the biopsy treatment of children with a pilocytic astrocytoma is contentious. With the radiation therapy the left cells of cancer can be destroyed after the surgery. Radiation therapy is especially avoided in children less than 5 years because of potential for serious side effects. In future, it is expected that the organizations and healthcare centers will be benefited who are engaging in this, making so many innovative techniques and medicines for the cure and help to the victims in living peaceful life. Therefore, the future of this clinical trials is expected to be bright in the coming years.
