The influence of in vitro conditions for the enrichment of stem-like cell population in primary human brain tumor cultures

U.D. Kahlert, D. Maciaczyk, G. Nikkhah & J. Maciaczyk
Objective: Recently demonstrated slowly proliferating stem-like cell population (BTSC) in malignant brain tumors, responsible for tumor initiation and propagation, allowed the identification of the molecular mechanisms underlying their resistance to both chemo- and radiotherapy. Reduction of BTSC population[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
