The purpose of this study is to determine treatment related toxicity, tumor response, progression-free survival and quality of life of newly diagnosed Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) patient...
Simultaneous integrated boost (SIB), a field-in-field escalation technique, has been introduced to deliver higher radiation dose to the certain part of target with the same fractionation s...
The aim of this study is to establish FET-PET as an additional therapy assessment parameter in patients diagnosed with a glioblastoma multiforme receiving radiochemotherapy and adjuvant ch...
The purpose of this study is to find out whether the new drug PX-866 will slow the growth of your glioblastoma multiforme.
The standard or usual treatment for this disease is standard chemotherapy alone. For the first part of this study (phase I), there are two purposes. The first is to see whether AZD2014 can...
In glioblastoma multiforme, the balance between the procoagulant system, anticoagulant system and fibrinolytic system is impaired in favour of hypercoagulability. The aim of this study was to compare ...
To assess the impact of family health conversations (FamHC) as a supplement to conventional care on health-related quality of life (HRQoL), family functioning (FFSS) and family hardiness or resilience...
Patients with glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) have a poor prognosis and high likelihood of recurrence. Routine care for incident cases in the United States involves surgical resection, followed by radia...
Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most common and deadly type of primary malignant tumor of the central nervous system. Accurate risk stratification is vital for a more personalized approach in GBM...
Extracranial metastases of glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) are rare due to the short survival experienced by the patients. Therefore, the natural history of GBM metastases remains elusive. The identific...
Benign and malignant central nervous system neoplasms derived from glial cells (i.e., astrocytes, oligodendrocytes, and ependymocytes). Astrocytes may give rise to astrocytomas (ASTROCYTOMA) or glioblastoma multiforme (see GLIOBLASTOMA). Oligodendrocytes give rise to oligodendrogliomas (OLIGODENDROGLIOMA) and ependymocytes may undergo transformation to become EPENDYMOMA; CHOROID PLEXUS NEOPLASMS; or colloid cysts of the third ventricle.

A skin and mucous membrane disease characterized by an eruption of macules, papules, nodules, vesicles, and/or bullae with characteristic "bull's-eye" lesions usually occurring on the dorsal aspect of the hands and forearms.
A variant of bullous erythema multiforme. It ranges from mild skin and mucous membrane lesions to a severe, sometimes fatal systemic disorder. Ocular symptoms include ulcerative conjunctivitis, keratitis, iritis, uveitis, and sometimes blindness. The cause of the disease is unknown.
A malignant form of astrocytoma histologically characterized by pleomorphism of cells, nuclear atypia, microhemorrhage, and necrosis. They may arise in any region of the central nervous system, with a predilection for the cerebral hemispheres, basal ganglia, and commissural pathways. Clinical presentation most frequently occurs in the fifth or sixth decade of life with focal neurologic signs or seizures.
Condition characterized by large, rapidly extending, erythematous, tender plaques on the upper body usually accompanied by fever and dermal infiltration of neutrophilic leukocytes. It occurs mostly in middle-aged women, is often preceded by an upper respiratory infection, and clinically resembles ERYTHEMA MULTIFORME. Sweet syndrome is associated with LEUKEMIA.
