Abstract:


Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is characterized by poor prognosis despite an aggressive therapeutic strategy. In recent years, many advances have been achieved in the field of glioblastoma biology.

Here we try to summarize the main clinical and biological factors impacting on clinical prognostication and therapy of GBM patients. From that standpoint hopefully, in the near future personalized therapies will be available.

Keywords:

Glioblastoma, prognostic factor, predictive response
