GBM and Radiation: GBM, or glioblastoma, is the highest grade brain tumor. It tends to grow rapidly. Unfortunately it is one of the CA we have trouble controlling. Even with high doses of radiation and chemotherapy the results are poor. On a good day we buy the pt time, on a bad day the tumor progresses while the pt is receiving treatment.
