    Abstract : 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.

  2. 2. Novel treatments of glioblastoma in experimental models

    Author : Karolina Förnvik; Neurokirurgi; []
    Keywords : Experimental glioma models; Glioblastoma; Complement system; C1 esterase inhibitor; ITPP; CRP; Glioma cells;

    Abstract : 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. READ MORE

  3. 3. The involvement of gangliosides in growth and migration of human glioblastoma cells

    Author : Kristina Hedberg; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Gangliosides synthesis; Ganglioside expression; Glioblastoma; Migration; Proliferation; Cell culture systems; Xenograft model;

    Abstract : Human glioblastoma is a primary brain tumour with a bad prognosis. One major contributing factor is that the tumour grows in an infiltrative way. Single tumour cells, undetectable with today's techniques, invade the brain and escape therapy. READ MORE

  4. 4. Large scale integration and interactive exploration of cancer data – with applications to glioblastoma

    Abstract : Glioblastoma is the most common malignant brain tumor, with a median survival of approximately 15 months. The standard of care treatment consists of surgical resection followed by radiotherapy and chemotherapy, where chemotherapy only prolongs survival by approximately 3 months. READ MORE

  5. 5. Peptide-based delivery to glioblastoma cells studied by the blood-brain barrier model

    Author : Artita Srimanee; Ülo Langel; Ing-Marie Nilsson; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; peptide-based delivery; blood-brain barrier; glioblastoma; neurokemi med molekylär neurobiologi; Neurochemistry with Molecular Neurobiology;

    Abstract : Crossing the blood-brain barrier (BBB) is a great challenge for delivery of highly charged macromolecules such as nucleic acids and proteins to the brain. Cell-penetrating peptides (CPPs) are promising vectors to deliver various cargoes ranging from small molecules to large molecules such as antibodies, proteins, and nucleic acids. READ MORE
