In this explorative study immunological changes during tumor therapy will be analyzed in patients with malignant glioma. Immunophenotyping before and during therapy is used as analysis method. Thereby immune cells are quantitatively and qualitatively detected from patient's blood at continuous time points. Additionally relevant mediators like cytokines, danger signals and chemokines are analyzed by other methods. Obtained results may give information about the effects of therapy on immunological processes and immune cells and may help to find immunological based predictive or prognostic tumor markers and to define time points for including additional immune therapy in the future.
