Diffuse gliomas are primary brain tumors characterized by infiltrative growth and high heterogeneity, which render the disease mostly incurable. Advances in genetic analysis revealed that molecular and epigenetic alterations predict patients' overall survival and clinical outcome. However, glioma tumorigenicity is not exclusively caused by its genetic alterations. The crosstalk between ...
Glioblastoma (GBM) is an aggressive form of brain tumor characterized by infiltration in the brain. GBM is generally resistant to chemotherapy and radiation. After surgical resection and treatment, virtually all GBM tumors recur within the first years after diagnosis, resulting in poor survival prognosis. In GBM, a small fraction of cells with neural stem cell (NSC)-like characteristics...
