      Fack, Fred; Espedal, Heidi; Keunen, Olivier; Golebiewska, Anna; Obad, Nina; Harter, Patrick N.; Mittelbronn, Michel; Bähr, Oliver; Weyerbrock, Astrid; Stuhr, Linda Elin Birkhaug; Miletic, Hrvoje; Sakariassen, Per Øystein; Stieber, Daniel; Rygh, Cecilie Brekke; Lund-Johansen, Morten; Zheng, Liang; Gottlieb, Eyal; Niclou, Simone P.; Bjerkvig, Rolf (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2015-01)
      Anti-angiogenic therapy in glioblastoma (GBM) has unfortunately not led to the anticipated improvement in patient prognosis. We here describe how human GBM adapts to bevacizumab treatment at the metabolic level. By performing ...
    • Glioblastoma organoids: pre-clinical applications and challenges in the context of immunotherapy 

      Klein, Eliane; Hau, Ann-Christin; Oudin, Anaïs; Golebiewska, Anna; Niclou, Simone Pierrette (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020-12-08)
      Malignant brain tumors remain uniformly fatal, even with the best-to-date treatment. For Glioblastoma (GBM), the most severe form of brain cancer in adults, the median overall survival is roughly over a year. New therapeutic ...
    • Glioblastomas are composed of genetically divergent clones with distinct tumourigenic potential and variable stem cell-associated phenotypes 

      Stieber, Daniel; Golebiewska, Anna; Evers, Lisa; Lenkiewicz, Elizabeth; Brons, Nicolas H.C.; Nicot, Nathalie; Oudin, Anaïs; Bougnaud, Sébastien; Hertel, Frank; Bjerkvig, Rolf; Vallar, Laurent; Barrett, Michael T.; Niclou, Simone P. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2014-02)
      Glioblastoma (GBM) is known to be a heterogeneous disease; however, the genetic composition of the cells within a given tumour is only poorly explored. In the advent of personalised medicine the understanding of intra-tumoural ...
    • Patient-derived organoids and orthotopic xenografts of primary and recurrent gliomas represent relevant patient avatars for precision oncology 

      Golebiewska, Anna; Hau, Ann-Christin; Oudin, Anaïs; Stieber, Daniel; Yabo, Yahaya A.; Baus, Virginie; Barthelemy, Vanessa; Klein, Eliane; Bougnaud, Sébastien; Keunen, Olivier; Wantz, May; Michelucci, Alessandro; Neirinckx, Virginie; Muller, Arnaud; Kaoma, Tony; Nazarov, Petr V.; Azuaje, Francisco; De Falco, Alfonso; Flies, Ben; Richart, Lorraine; Poovathingal, Suresh K; Arns, Thais; Grzyb, Kamil; Mock, Andreas; Herold-Mende, Christel; Steino, Anne; Brown, Dennis; May, Patrick; Miletic, Hrvoje; Malta, Tathiane M.; Noushmehr, Houtan; Kwon, Yong-Jun; Jahn, Winnie; Klink, Barbara; Tanner, Georgette; Stead, Lucy F.; Mittelbronn, Michel; Skupin, Alexander; Hertel, Frank; Bjerkvig, Rolf; Niclou, Simone Pierrette (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Patient-based cancer models are essential tools for studying tumor biology and for the assessment of drug responses in a translational context. We report the establishment a large cohort of unique organoids and patient-derived ...
    • Stem cell-associated heterogeneity in Glioblastoma results from intrinsic tumor plasticity shaped by the microenvironment 

      Dirkse, Anna; Golebiewska, Anna; Buder, Thomas; Nazarov, Petr V.; Muller, Arnaud; Poovathingal, Suresh K.; Brons, Nicolaas H. C.; Leite, Sonia; Sauvageot, Nicolas; Sarkisjan, Dzjemma; Seyfrid, Mathieu; Fritah, Sabrina; Stieber, Daniel; Michelucci, Alesandro; Hertel, Frank; Herold-Mende, Christel; Azuaje, Francisco; Skupin, Alexander; Bjerkvig, Rolf; Deutsch, Andreas; Voss-Böhme, Anja; Niclou, Simone Pierrette (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019-04-16)
      The identity and unique capacity of cancer stem cells (CSC) to drive tumor growth and resistance have been challenged in brain tumors. Here we report that cells expressing CSC-associated cell membrane markers in Glioblastoma ...
    • Temozolomide-induced rna interactome uncovers novel lncrna regulatory loops in glioblastoma
