Al's Comment:

 Very important article.     It points out how the tumor is usually made up of at least 2-4 different subtypes of GBM, and most importantly, that the cells are able to change from one type to another.  This may account for how easily a tumor evades treatments. It also opens up a lot of possibilities such as targeting the mechanism that the cells use to change back and forth - perhaps have them all change to an easier cell to kill, Or just target the four subtypes with 4 different treatments and the cells would have no place to hide!
