The Everest Centre for Low-grade Paediatric Brain Tumours

Low-grade brain tumours make up the largest group of tumours of the central nervous system in children, accounting for about half of all brain tumors in under-18s. In Germany and the UK combined, more than 400 children and adolescents are diagnosed every year. These tumours are caused by changes in the DNA that lead to uncontrolled growth of cells in the brain or spinal cord. The term ‘low-grade’ indicates that the tumours are relatively slow-growing, and the risk of their spreading to other parts of the body is low. Given their location, however, these tumours can still be very difficult to treat, with children often suffering life-long health problems as a result of their disease and/or from side-effects of the treatment.

At the established Everest Center for Low Grade Pediatric Brain Tumors, research groups from Berlin, London and Heidelberg (KiTZ and DKFZ) are pursuing the common goal of significantly improving our understanding of the biology of low-grade pediatric brain tumors in order to derive new treatment approaches in the long term. The Brain Tumor Charity, based in the UK) is funding and supporting the project, which was launched in 2017, and has since been extended with an additional funding period and thus a total of about 12 million Euros (£10 million) raised by the outstanding "Everest in the Alps" team.

A close relationship has been further established with the pediatric low-grade astrocytoma program at Dana-Faber Cancer Institute in Boston, USA, in order to advance knowledge and discovery with more man-power and close collaboration, but most importantly to jointly bring the knowledge to the young patients. Another important part of the project is to improve the quality of life with the disease. For this purpose, individual life situations are recorded and evaluated over a long period of time with the help of today's advanced technologies. The aim is to create an environment in which those affected and their families can lead a life worth living with the disease.

The Everest Center takes its name from this extraordinary fundraiser to raise awareness and support research on this disease by family and friends of Toby (a patient with low-grade glioma). Moved by Toby's story of suffering, a group of backcountry skiers crossed the Alps for four days each in 2015, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2022 and 2023. By the end of their mentally and physically draining trek, they had conquered an elevation gain equivalent to the height of Mount Everest (8848 m). More about their efforts can be read here. To date, the "Everest in the Alps" team has raised over 10 million British pounds in donations for the Brain Tumor Charity. On behalf of all those affected, we would like to thank them for this – THANK YOU!!!

How tumour cell hibernation may affect the growth of low-grade brain tumours

Some of our most exciting findings to date are related to a cellular process called ‘oncogene-induced senescence’ (OIS). This is a mechanism in which some cells enter a dormant or hibernation state when they sense incorrect activation of a tumour-driving pathway, as a natural protective mechanism. We have known for some time that low-grade brain tumour cells often enter this dormant state, but not what might be controlling it or how it relates to overall tumour growth. We have now been able to show that chemicals released by the hibernating tumour cells are able to promote this state in their neighbours, and suppress tumour growth. Interestingly, we also saw that patients with high levels of this hibernation program in their tumour were less likely to experience a tumour recurrence – something which we now want to further test as part of an upcoming European clinical trial being led by us (the LOGGIC study). Finally, we found that a particular type of new drugs might be able to specifically kill these hibernating cells, which likely make up a large fraction of the cells in a typical low-grade brain tumour. This is important, because these dormant cells are often resistant to currently used chemotherapies, which typically kill only actively growing cells. We are now in the early stages of discussing how this could potentially be tested in a new Everest clinical trial concept.
