Objective: Malignant gliomas are highly vascularised tumors. Production of attracting factors like VEGF (Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor) leads to a recruitment of endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) to the tumor stroma and vasculature. Recently two types of circulating progenitor cells have been[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
