    Sammanfattning : The malignant primary brain tumor glioblastoma has a dismal prognosis and is distinguished by its heterogeneous character. Current treatment with surgical resection, radiotherapy and adjuvant chemotherapy with the alkylating agent temozolomide does not provide a cure, but simply prolongs survival by a few months.

    Sammanfattning : Glioblastoma (GBM) is the most common high-grade brain tumor diagnosed in patients who are more than 50 years of age. The standard of care treatment is surgery, followed by radiotherapy and chemotherapy. The median life expectancy of patients is only between 12 to 15 months after receiving current treatment regimes.

    Sammanfattning : One of the major problems with malignant brain tumours, such as glioblastoma multiforme, is that despite being able to remove the major bulk of the tumour through surgery and treating the patients with chemotherapy and radiotherapy, we know that tumour cells have already spread throughout the brain. Furthermore, we now know that the glioblastoma cells effectively suppress the patients’ own anti-tumour response. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Glioblastoma (GBM) is the most common and aggressive primary brain cancer. GBM cells migrate away from the primary lesion and invade healthy brain tissue. The invading cells escape surgical resection, radiotherapy and develop resistance to chemotherapy. Consequently, despite treatment, recurrence is inevitable, and survival is only 14 months. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Biomarkers In Brain Tumors With Focus On Glioblastoma

    Sammanfattning : The primary brain tumors, gliomas, are not very common but they are deadly. Each year in Sweden around 500 patients will be diagnosed with a glioma and unfortunately most of them will have the most aggressive type, glioblastoma (GBM). Median survival, even if treated, is poor (14-17 months). LÄS MER
