Research Summary

The putative origin of malignant gliomas from neuronal or other brain-derived stem cells challenges several aspects of current concepts in brain tumor biology and therapeutic approaches. Further key propensities of gliomas, such as migration and invasiveness as well as angiogenesis need further molecular clarification. Consequent experimental therapies involve vaccination approaches and delivery by hematopoietic and mesenchymal stem cells.
