Glioma

Glioma

A glioma is a type of tumor that occurs in the brain or spine, which arises from glial cells. Based on the histological features, Gliomas are mainly classified into ependymomas (develop in ependymal cells), astrocytomas (develop in astrocytes), Oligodendrogliomas (develop in oligodendrocytes), brainstem glioma (develop in the brain stem), Optic nerve glioma (develop in or around the optic nerve) and mixed gliomas (develop in other different types of glia). Because the sites of affected central nervous system are various, the symptoms of gliomas are different. For instance, a glioma in the brain can result in headaches, vomiting, seizures, and cranial nerve disorders caused by increased intracranial pressure. A glioma developing in the optic nerve can cause visual loss. Treatment for gliomas depends on the location of cancer, the cell types, and the grade of disease. Normally, surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy with a combined approaches are used. Considering that these traditional methods have certain side effects, we provide CellRapeutic™ CAR products targeting glioma-specific antigens to assist your development of new treatments in clinical trials.
