    Somatic cells do not have telomerase activity but immortalized cell lines and more than 85 % of the cancer cells show telomerase activation to prevent the telomere from progressive shortening. The activation of this enzyme has been found in a variety of human tumors and tumor-derived cell lines,...

    Granular cell astrocytomas are uncommon tumors of the central nervous system (CNS) of which no cases have been documented in the spinal cord. This variant of glioma should not be confused with benign granular cell tumor which, although rare, has been well characterized in the spinal cord. We...

    Pilocytic astrocytomas are classified as WHO grade I gliomas that occur predominantly in children and young adults. Reports of the tumors in elderly adults are extremely rare. We describe two cases of pilocytic astrocytoma in elderly adults, a 68-year-old man and a 71-year-old woman. Brain...
