Background & Aims: Glioblastoma (GBM, WHO Grade IV) is considered as the most lethal neoplasm of all solid cancers due to its inherent intensive invasiveness. GBM may arise de novo, or following progression from lower grade gliomas. Recently, solid tumor progression has been recognized as the product of an evolving crosstalk between the cancer cells and its surrounding glial cells. The intensive invasion activity of GBM cells might be regulated by surrounding normal cells such as… CONTINUE READING
