Glioblastoma

Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) (named as glioblastoma) is a invasive glioma which is developed from star-shaped glial cells (i.e. astrocytes and oligodendrocytes) that support the health of the nerve cells within the brain. Almost 1 in 5 tumors in the brain are glioblastoma.

 

Glioblastoma multiforme occur most often in adults between the ages of 45 and 70 years. This tumor represents about 15.4% of all primary brain tumors and about 60-75% of all astrocytomas. They increase in frequency with age, and affect more men than women. Only three per cent of childhood brain tumors are glioblastoma
