Abstract (English)

High-grade gliomas, especially glioblastomas, are highly complex and heterogeneous primary brain tumours. Glioblastoma (GBM) is one of the most aggressive cancers with poor overall survival prognosis. Fast and widespread invasion of the brain parenchyma by a subpopulation of progenitor tumour cells is a main pathophysiological feature of these tumours. Invasion renders localised therapies ...


Translation of the abstract (German)

Höhergradige Gliome, im besonderen Glioblastome sind sehr komplexe, heterogene hirneigene Tumore. Glioblastome zählen zu den aggressivsten Krebsformen mit einer sehr schlechten Prognose. Ein pathophysiologisches Hauptmerkmal ist die schnelle und weit ausgedehnte Invasion des Hirnparenchyms durch eine Subpopulation von Tumorvorläuferzellen. Diese infiltrierenden Tumorzellen stehen im Zusammenhang ...
