The neural stem cells of the SVZ of the brain have are capable of postnatal neurogenesis. GBM tumors also possess these stem cells, which may be derived from the SVZ. GBM confers a poor prognosis due to the possible reason that therapies fail to eradicate the resistant stem cells in the SVZ.Results vary from studies that investigate irradiation of the SVZ.
