Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most aggressive malignant primary brain tumor of the central nervous system. Despite continuous progression in treatment options for GBM like surgery, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy, this disease still has a high rate of recurrence. The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress pathway is associated with chemotherapeuti...

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) generates excess reactive oxygen species (ROS), which can exacerbate secondary injury and result in disability and death. Secondary injury cascades can trigger the release of uncontrolled ROS into the surrounding normal brain tissue, forming an extended pool of ROS, which leads to massive neuronal death. Here, we develo...
