Synergistic Immunotherapy of Glioblastoma by Dual Targeting of IL-6 and CD40

Researchers identified a Stat3/HIF-1α-mediated axis, through which IL-6 executed an anti-tumor role to induce CD40 expression in Mϕs.

Effects of the DRD2/3 Antagonist ONC201 and Radiation in Glioblastoma

Investigators suggested that combined treatment with the DRD2/3 antagonist ONC201 and radiation improves the efficacy of radiation against glioblastoma (GBM) in vitro and in vivo through suppression of glioma-initiating cells without increasing toxicity in mouse models of GBM.

Altered Lipid Metabolism Marks Glioblastoma Stem and Non-Stem Cells in Separate Tumor Niches

Investigators interrogated gene expression in separate microenvironments of glioblastoma organoid models that mimicked the transition between nutrient-rich and nutrient-poor pseudopalisading/perinecrotic tumor zones using spatial-capture RNA-sequencing.
