Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) is a highly aggressive and, unfortunately, difficult-to-treat brain tumour that primarily affects children, but it can also occur in adults. This tumour grows within the pons, a critical part of the brainstem that controls essential functions like breathing, heart rate, and the nerves and muscles involved in seeing, hearing, walking, talking, and eating. Surgical removal isn’t possible because of its location and the way it infiltrates surrounding brain tissue. Treatment typically focuses on managing symptoms and may include radiation therapy, but options are limited, and the prognosis is generally poor. The research community is actively seeking more effective treatments for DIPG.
