Tumors in this study were embryonal neoplasms from infants and children younger than 3 years entered into the PBTC Protocol 001 (clinicaltrials.gov Identifier: NCT00042367), a pilot study that tested the utility of intrathecal mafosfamide to supplement intensive chemotherapy and radiation therapy of embryonal tumors and metastatic ependymomas.
The PBTC drug trial 001, investigating the utility of intrathecal mafosfamide to supplement intensive chemotherapy and radiation therapy in infants and children younger than 3 years with embryonal tumors and metastatic ependymomas, offered a resource whereby these tumors and the features used to evaluate them could be further studied.
Introduction to PBTC. Pediatric Brain Tumor Consortium Web site.
We define the decision process broadly for polar bears to include the entire suite of decisions across institutions, from communities to the federal government, and by the cross-scale institutions that coordinate them (PBTC and PBAC).
Coordination among institutional actors through bodies such as the PBTC and PBSG historically has been one of the hallmarks of polar bear management efforts (Prestrud and Stirling, 1994), so this breakdown is somewhat surprising.
The regime is a hierarchical, vertically organized system where scientific information flows upward from the PBTC to the PBAC, and policy decisions flow downward from the PBAC to personnel within its participating government agencies, who then must apply those decisions (Berkes et al., 2005).
and the multidisciplinary cooperative research organisation Pediatric Brain Tumor Consortium (PBTC) have formed a clinical trial collaboration to evaluate Apexigen's APX005M, an investigational immune activating compound that targets CD40, in pediatric patients with recurrent or refractory brain tumors, the company said.
The PBTC will conduct a Phase 1 dose escalation trial of APX005M in children at its participating academic medical centers and children's hospitals across the US.
Nunavut was criticized by the Canadian Polar Bear Technical Committee and by the Polar Bear Specialist Group of the IUCN/SSC for raising quotas on the basis of traditional knowledge without supporting scientific evidence (PBTC
, 2005; Aars et al., 2006).
Harvest simulations were conducted using the natural survival rate estimates (mark-recapture analysis) and recruitment data (standing age analysis) from this study; the harvest age and sex distribution for Baffin Bay polar bears detailed in the 2001 Canadian Federal and Provincial Polar Bear Technical Committee (PBTC
) status report (PBTC
, 2001); and recovery rates of marked animals.
