Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) is a fast-growing and most common type of cancer that starts in the brain, a central nervous system tumor that forms from supportive (glial) tissue of the brain and spinal cord, usually occurs in adults and affects the brain more often than the spinal cord. It is also called as Glioblastoma and Grade IV Astrocytoma.

The exact cause of Glioblastoma Multiforme is still unknown. Factors associated with Glioblastoma Multiforme risk are prior therapeutic radiation, decreased susceptibility to allergy and impaired immune response, hereditary cancer syndromes including Li-fraumeni syndrome and Lynch syndrome and mutations in genes within the tumor cells.
The most common symptoms of Glioblastoma Multiforme include headache, seizures, loss of balance/trouble in walking, nausea and vomiting, memory loss, difficulties in speech, changes in vision, weakness, trouble in concentrating, mood swings etc.

Glioblastoma Multiforme can be diagnosed by the doctors with initial examination about recent symptoms and personal and family history of disease. Diagnostic tests include MRI, CT scan, Magnetic resonance spectroscopy, needle biopsy.

The most common treatments for Glioblastoma Multiforme are surgery, Radiotherapy, Chemotherapy such as temozolomide, Targeted therapy such as Bevacizumab, Immunotherapy etc.

The pipeline of Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) treatment market consists of a great variable of drugs. Lysine Specific Demethylase 1 (LSD1) Inhibitors, Fatty Acid Synthase (FASN) Inhibitors, Phosphatidylinositol 3 Kinase (PI3K) Inhibitors, Poly (ADP-ribose) Polymerase 1 (PARP1) Inhibitors, Mesenchymal Epithelial Transition Factor (MET) Inhibitors, and some others are the most highlighted class of this indication. Ongoing research and current trials have the potential to change the market.

More than 100 key players, including pharma giants such as Astrazeneca, Nerviano Medical Sciences, In8bio Inc., MimiVax, LLC, Hoffmann-La Roche, and others are working to bring novel therapies that overcome the roadblocks of Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) treatment pipeline.
