Figure 7

Tumor progression model:

(a) Initiation of tumor formation. (b) Tumor growth restricted at the oxygen and glucose diffusion barrier. (c) Glioma ells at the edge of the tumor will be re-oxygenated by neovascularization, and grow and divide until they reach a new oxygen and nutrient diffusion barrier. (d): repetitive cycles of growth and angiogenesis occur during the progression of the tumor.
