About Glioblastoma Multiforme
Glioblastoma multiforme is the most aggressive variant of malignant brain cancer. It has a poor prognosis with low rate of survival, a median of one year. The primary brain tumor happens due to uncontrolled cell division and developments in the brain. The tumors can be found in the glial cells or the neuron. The one which develops in the glial cells (astrocytes and oligodendrocytes) is called glioma, the commonest forms of brain tumor.

Glioblastoma multiforme is the most common variant of brain tumor, and highly invasive in nature. It may turn up in the cerebrum, mostly in the frontal and temporal lobes, and seldom spreads in areas outside the brain. The tumor progresses rapidly, and is among the most difficult-to-treat cancer with limited treatment options.

Glioblastoma multiforme is also known as Class IV astrocytoma which has an unknown etiology, and is more frequent in men than women. Some of the common symptoms of glioblastoma multiforme are increased intracranial pressure resulting in nausea, vomiting, and headache, cognitive and visual impairment, motor dysfunction, seizures, loss in sensory functions, and changes in personality, mood or concentration. The condition can be broadly classified into two types, primary or de novo glioblastoma multiforme (which progresses very fast) and secondary glioblastoma multiforme (which is known to progress at a slower rate). Glioblastoma multiforme can be treated by chemotherapy, steroids, radiation therapy, proton therapy, surgical procedure, and immunotherapies, which are the emerging treatment options yet to hit the market.

The report's analysts forecast the global glioblastoma multiforme therapeutics market to grow at a CAGR of 11.94 percent during 2014-2019.
