Glioblastoma (GBM) is considered one of the most malignant types of brain cancer, due to its rapid cell reproduction and the large network of blood vessels. Recently, scientist have found the functional role of two types of DNA modifications in GBM tissue. The research also shows a strong correlation between one of these modifications and patient survival.

From this discovery, scientists are continuing to learn more about GBM and how it operates which will in turn lead to more groundbreaking treatments. To read the full article, click here.
