Abstract

Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most dramatic primary brain cancer with a very poor prognosis because of inevitable disease recurrence. The median overall survival is less than 1 year after diagnosis. Cancer stem cells have recently been disclosed in GBM. GBM stem-like cells (GSCs) exhibit resistance to radio/chemotherapeutic treatments and are therefore considered to play an important role in disease recurrence. GSCs are thus appealing targets for new treatments for GBM patients. In this study, we show that GBM cells with stem cell characteristics are resistant to lysis mediated by resting natural killer (NK) cells because of the expression of MHC class I molecules. However, GSCs are killed by lectin-activated NK cells. Furthermore, in experiments using the therapeutic antibody CetuximAb, we show that GSCs are sensitive to antibody-mediated cytotoxicity. We confirm the sensitivity of GSC to cytotoxicity carried out by IL2-activated NK cells and tumor-specific T cells. More importantly, we show that GSCs are more sensitive to NK and T cell-mediated lysis relatively to their corresponding serum-cultured GBM cells obtained from the same initial tumor specimen. Altogether, these results demonstrate the sensitivity of GSC to i...Continue Reading

Cancer Stem Cells in Glioblastoma

Glioblastoma is the most common and aggressive type of brain tumor. It contains a population of tumor initiating stem cell-like cells known as cancer stem cells. Investigations are ongoing into these cancer stem cells found in these solid tumors which are highly resistance to treatment. Here is the latest research on cancer stem cells in glioblastoma.
