It is believed that this protein plays a role in maturation of astrocytes. More prognostic power can be obtained by combining the mutational status of IDH1 and the methylation status of MGMT into a two-gene predictor. The natural history of extracranial metastasis from glioblastoma multiforme.

It is important to distinguish primary glioblastoma from secondary glioblastoma. Multiple Weibel-Palade bodies, normally absent in the brain endothelial cells, can be found in the cells of the newly formed vessels. The participation of sex hormones and viruses in its oncogenesis was also suggested.

Biological mechanisms of glioma invasion and potential therapeutic targets. Viruses, such as human cytomegalovirus HCMVare also believed to be among the etiologic agents for glioma development. Glioblastoma multiforme as a manifestation of Turcot syndrome.

Glioblastoma multiforme tumors are characterized by the presence of small areas of necrotizing tissue that are surrounded by anaplastic cells. Hormone treatment is another therapeutic method for patients with GBM. D ICD – The term glioblastoma multiforme was introduced in by Percival Bailey and Harvey Cushingbased mkltiforme the idea that the tumor originates from primitive precursors of glial cells glioblastsand the highly variable appearance due to the presence of necrosis, hemorrhage and cysts multiform.


It has also been shown that inhibition of the Mer receptor for tyrosine kinase in glioblastoma cells influences their survival in vitro, and increases their sensitivity to chemotherapeutics.

No doubt palliative care is important for the patient who is suffering from this disease. However, the genetic background for development of this type of glioblastoma is different from those arising spontaneously [ 14 ]. Clin Med Insights Oncol. Prognostic factors Selection of an appropriate made of treatment and prognosis in patients suffering from GBM depend on the tumor location, its histological grade, genetic profile, proliferative index, completeness of surgery resection and the patient’s age and position on the Karnofsky performance status scale KPS [ 80 ] before radiotherapy [ 81 ].


The Johns Hopkins experience”. Radiotherapy with Concurrent and Adjuvant Temozolomide: The clinical evaluation of chemotherapeutic agents in cancer; Evaluation of Chemotherapeutic Agents; New York: Palliative treatment usually is conducted to improve quality of life and to achieve a longer survival time.
