Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most common brain tumor, accounting for about half of central nervous system tumors. GBM is a subtype of astrocytoma, with high aggressiveness and lethality, characterized by intense anaplasia and presence of necrosis. In general, treatment for GBM involves surgery, followed by radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
