Glioblastoma (grade IV)

Glioblastomas are malignant astrocytomas that grow and spread aggressively. The cells look very different from normal cells. Glioblastoma is also called glioblastoma multiforme or grade IV astrocytoma. They occur most often in adults between the ages of 45 and 70 years.


Treatment of glioblastoma may include the following:

    1. Surgery plus radiation therapy, with or without chemotherapy.
    2. A clinical trial of chemotherapy placed into the brain during surgery.
    3. A clinical trial of radiation and concurrent chemotherapy.
    4. A clinical trial of new anticancer drugs and biologic therapy following radiation therapy.
    5. A clinical trial of chemotherapy and new methods of delivering radiation therapy.
    6. Clinical trials of new treatments.
