1 | INTRODUCTION
Gliomas are primary brain malignancies that are derived from glial or precursor cells, accounting for approximately 80.8% of malignant brain tumors, and approximately 25.1% of all central nervous system tumors.1 Among the deadliest forms of brain cancers in adults, glioblastoma (GBM) is the most aggressive diffuse glioma with a short median survival of 14.4 months after standard therapy.1–3
The therapeutic options available to patients with gliomas include surgery, radiotherapy (RT), and chemotherapy; however, these treatments are not as effective as expected considering the anatomical position and self-renewing tumor stem cells of gliomas.4–6 For instance, chemo- therapy is insufficient after penetrating the blood–brain- barrier (BBB). Moreover, self-renewing tumor stem cells of gliomas lead to a poor prognosis after surgery. Thus, thera- peutic options for those patients are limited currently.
Abstract
Gliomas refer to a group of complicated human brain tumors with a low 5-year survival rate and limited therapeutic options. Extremely low-frequency pulsed electromagnetic field (ELF-PEMF) is a specific magnetic field featuring almost no side effects. However, the application of ELF-PEMF in the treatment of gliomas is rare. This review summarizes five significant underlying mechanisms including calcium ions, autophagy, apoptosis, angiogenesis, and reactive oxygen species, and applications of ELF-PEMF in glioma treatment from a clinical practice per- spective. In addition, the prospects of ELF-PEMF in combination with conven- tional therapy for the treatment of gliomas are reviewed. This review benefits any specialists, especially oncologists, interested in this new therapy because it can help treat patients with gliomas properly.
