About the book

Primary brain tumors comprise 1-2% of all tumors. Supratentorial gliomas constitute 40-50% of cerebral hemisphere tumors. The supratentorial glioma most frequently encountered among children is ependymoma. With middle-aged population, the incidence of cerebral hemisphere gliomas increases, and especially diffuse and anaplastic astrocytomas are more common. With the elderly, while glioblastoma is common, the incidence of other gliomas is low. In recent years, in line with the advances in neurodiagnostic tools and surgical techniques, improvements in the management of gliomas have been achieved, resulting in reduced postoperative mortality rate and increased survival time. Treatment options available for patients diagnosed with gliomas at present include surgery, adjuvant radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
This book will include chapters on treatments of gliomas including surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy and antiangiogenic therapy protocols, immunotherapy, molecular therapy, specific target agents therapy with nanoparticles and gene therapy. Within these chapters, the book will provide practical information relevant for both the students and specialist doctors.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Nina Kalinic Babic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
