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

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Kristina Hedberg; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; 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

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

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Patrik Johansson; Uppsala universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Glioblastoma; data integration; network modeling; interactive exploration; precision medicine; Oncology; Onkologi; Molekylär medicin; Molecular Medicine; Statistics; Statistik;

    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

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

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Neurochemistry

    Author : Artita Srimanee; Stockholms universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : 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

  5. 5. Modeling glioblastoma heterogeneity to decipher its biology

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Yuan Xie; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Glioblastoma multiforme; biobank; GBM cells; cell of origin; LGR5; OPCs;

    Abstract : Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most common and lethal form of primary brain tumor that mainly affects adults. GBM displays remarkable intra- and inter-tumoral heterogeneity and contains a subpopulation of cells named glioma stem cells that is believed to be responsible for tumor maintenance, progression and recurrence.
