Our findings provide new models of acquired TRAIL resistance, which will provide essential tools to gain further insight into the heterogeneous therapy responses within GBM tumors. Additionally, these findings emphasize the critical importance of combining proteasome inhibitors and pro-apoptotic ligands to overcome acquired resistance.

This machine learning-assisted SERS method enables a new direction through label-free investigation of EV preparations by differentiating cancer cell-derived exosomes from those of healthy. This approach will potentially open up new avenues of research for early detection and monitoring of various diseases, including cancer.

Primary GB cell (GC) cultures have become a crucial tool in the research of brain tumors, with the potential of revealing patient-specific variations in therapeutic response. Unfortunately, quantitative data on the stability of these cells over the first 20–30 passes of culture are few.
