tumor stem cells, glial tumors, radioresistance, radiosurgery


Data about tumor stem cells, in particular, about their high invasive, migration abilities, differentiated and angiogenic mimicry, confluence with unchanged cells, radioresistance.

Tumor stem sells are radioresistant to high doses of irradiation using Gamme Knife surgery and external beam radiotherapy.
