Study Description

Treatment options for GBM patients have not changed over the last 15 years, and the success of targeted therapy or immunotherapy has been disappointinglimited. Thus, the standard of care for GBM patients remains surgical resection followed by concomitant DNA alkylating agent therapy with temozolomide (TMZ) and radiation therapy (RT). However, the time to relapse is generally short (6.9 months on average) owing to the tumor’s ability to infiltrate normal parenchyma and its intrinsic resistance to radio-chemotherapy. Due to the lack of alternative treatment options, elucidating underlying resistance mechanism has come into major focus of research, with the hope for opening new ways of therapeutic intervention overcoming resistance. To explore therapy resistance driving events, we performed a study using a single-centric collective of matched pairs of therapy-naïve and post-therapeuticc tissue from GBM patients, selected based on a maximally long interval between resections of the initial and the recurrent tumors. This rare collective was analyzed by whole exome sequencing (WES), ... (Show More)
