Genentech BioOncology is dedicated to advancing the science of glioblastoma therapy through comprehensive research programs and education. Glioblastomas usually form in astrocytes in the cerebral white matter.1
Glioblastoma Demographic Statistics

    In 2004–2007, an estimated 37,890 Americans were diagnosed with glioblastoma—16.7% of all reported brain tumors2

    Most brain tumors are not associated with known risk factors.1 However, risk factors include ionizing radiation exposure to the head and a family history of inherited conditions such as neurofibromatosis type 1 and Li-Fraumeni syndrome1,3
    The 5-year survival rate for patients with glioblastoma is 2.9%4
    The median survival time for glioblastoma is limited to approximately 10 to 15 months5

Symptoms of glioblastoma include headache; nausea; vomiting; blurred vision; balance problems; drowsiness; seizure; hemiparesis; and progressive memory, personality, or neurologic deficits.1,3
