About GlioblastomaGlioblastoma is the most aggressive and most common form of primary brain tumor in the U.S. The disease affects approximately 10,000 Americans each year.  Historically, based on literature, the median overall survival time from initial diagnosis is 15 months with optimal treatment, and median survival from the time of tumor recurrence is only 3-5 months without additional effective treatment.  The disease is widely recognized as one of the deadliest forms of cancer.
