Malignant gliomas are primary brain tumors, which are highly invasive but not known to metastasize outside the central nervous system (CNS). The median survival time of patients with glioma is only 6 months to 2 years depending on various patient, tumor and treatment parameters (Louis et al. 2007). The highly aggressive character of gliomas with glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) being the most aggressive subtype are characterized by their diffuse infiltration into the normal brain parenchyma and… CONTINUE READING
