Abstract

Natural Remedies for Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) Glioblastoma multiforme, commonly known as GBM, is a form of the brain with uncontrollable cell growth. For the past few decades, there have been many attempts to find a working or reliable cure to reduce the effects of this tumor, but nothing has been successful. As a result, many of those affected turn to natural remedies for relief. We tested the cytotoxicity of U118 Glioblastoma multiforme cells when treated with tomato extract, garlic extract, and ginger extract. Solutions were prepared to induce the cell cultures and responses were monitored after a 2-week period, Cell cultures were recounted to identify the effect of these natural remedies, if any, on the Glioblastoma cells. Future plans include testing the cell cultures with natural compounds similar to tomato, ginger, and garlic. It is hoped to make a conclusion based on what compound would be best to use in response to GBM.
