Glioblastoma or glioblastoma multiforme abbreviated as GBM is the most common and most aggressive type of glioma. Glioblastoma tumors arise from astrocytes (star shaped cell) that make glue like tissues of the brain. Astrocytomas are a type of cancer of the brain and GBM is grade four tumors & the most malignant form of astrocytoma. Our survey aimed to find out its awareness among the pharmacy undergraduates at Jinnah University for Women, Karachi, Pakistan. A random and cross-sectional method was to collect the data in the month of May- June, 2014. After our survey we have concluded that the awareness of glioblastoma multiforme is very less in pharmacy undergraduates. There were only 12% students who know about the glioblastoma multiforme. There were only 3% students who know about the treatment of glioblastoma multiforme, whereas only 2% pharmacy undergraduates who knows the types of glioblastoma multiforme, difference between primary and secondary type of glioblastoma multiforme and the causes of glioblastoma multiforme. This result shows that almost there is no awareness about the grade 4 tumor, glioblastoma multiforme.
