Objective: Microglia cells represent the immune system of the mammalian brain and constitute up to one third of the brain tumor compartment. Nevertheless, the role of microglia in glioblastoma has remained unclear. The aim of our research is to investigate the microglia-tumor-interaction, especially[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
