Abstract

Glioblastoma multiforme, or GBM, is a malevolent tumor that affects the spine and brain. It tends to create pressure and spreads rather quickly through the body. GBM holds a subset of cells called glioblastoma stem-like cells (GSCs). Those cells lead to tumor recurrence and are responsible for the aggressiveness, recurrence and resistance to treatments of GBM. Cancer stem cells arise out of normal stem cells and often have the ability to cause relapses in cancer and the recreation of a tumor, GBM in this case. The research study has shown that mature cancer cells go through proliferation leading to their growth and can cause the growth of the brain tumor.
