Recent studies have implicated neural stem cells (NSCs) in brain tumor initiation and development. Subpopulations of stemlike cancer cells have also been isolated from brain tumors, and are purported to be important mediators of malignant behavior and therapeutic resistance.

Grade II tumors are low-grade malignant astrocytomas that appear differentiated and are slow growing but exhibit diffuse infiltration, rendering them surgically incurable. The higher grade gliomas include Grade III and Grade IV tumors. Grade III (anaplastic astrocytomas) are characterized by dense cellularity, mitotic activity, and nuclear atypia while Grade IV (GBM) are the most aggressive tumors with advanced features of malignancy, including microvascular proliferation and necrosis (Louis, 2006).
