  • Expression of the progenitor marker NG2/CSPG4 predicts poor survival and resistance to ionising radiation in glioblastoma 

    Svendsen, Agnete; Verhoeff, Joost J. C.; Immervoll, Heike; Brøgger, Jan C.; Kmiecik, Justyna; Poli, Aurélie; Netland, Inger A.; Planagumà, Jesús; Torsvik, Anja; Sakariassen, Per Øystein; Bjerkvig, Rolf; Enger, Per Øyvind; Tronstad, Karl Johan (Springer, 2011-08-24)
    Glioblastoma (GBM) is a highly aggressive brain tumour, where patients respond poorly to radiotherapy and exhibit dismal survival outcomes. The mechanisms of radioresistance are not completely understood. However, cancer ...
