High grade gliomas can be seldom controlled, due to the infiltrative nature of these tumors and the presence of cell populations resistant to radio- and chemotherapy. Current research aims to develop novel therapeutic approaches to track and eliminate the disseminated glioma-driving cells. Selected delivery of therapeutic agents taking advantage of the tropism of normal stem cells for glioma cells might be one.
