Objective: Enhanced proliferation, metabolic stress, necrosis and hypoxia are hallmarks of malignant gliomas. Emerging data suggest that malignant gliomas consist of diverse cell identities that produce a broad variety of factors in order to escape cell death through the loss of oxygenation, such as[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
