Abstract

Skull base, including optic nerve, cavernous sinus, clival and foramen magnum tumors represent a major challenge for neurosurgeons and neuro-oncologists. Growth regulatory signaling pathways for these tumors are of increasing interest as potential targets for new chemotherapy. Those differentially activated in various grades of meningiomas are currently being identified as well. This article reviews some recent findings pathways that appear to regulate meningioma growth. Potential targets for novel therapies are also discussed.
