Glioblastoma is one of the most aggressive cancers that begins within the brain.
According to statistics, most patients diagnosed with cancer die within 12 to 15 months. Less than 5% of patients are survived longer than five years.
If you are male you are at 1.5 higher risks of glioblastoma, compared to the female's counterpart.
The causes of glioblastoma are unknown, some researchers suggested that genetic preposition and environmental factors, previous radiotherapy, a weakened immune system may be some risk factors associated with the onset of the disease.
Most cases of GBM are diagnosed at an older age with a median age of 64.
Most patients with GBM experience symptoms of brain swelling caused by the overexpression of the fluid surrounding the tumor.
Conventionally, due to the nature of rapid growth, surgery is necessary to relieve the brain pressure and remove the tumor as much as possible, followed by radiation and chemotherapy.
According to the statistics, in the US, the incidence affects mostly in the elderly with the diagnosed rate of 3.19 per 100,000 persons. The disease is rare in children.
GBM is deadly, patients with GBM have a median survival of less than one year and less than 2% of patients survive three years or more.
On finding potential and natural foods that process neuroprotective property, researchers investigated the protective effect of sulforaphane (SFN), an isothiocyanate (ITC) derived from cruciferous vegetables against glioblastoma (GBM) progression.
Furthermore, SFN can overcome the chemoresistance of tumor cells.
