DIFFERENCES BETWEEN GLIAL AND GLIOMA CELL? - (Jul/14/2013 )

i' m confused . what differences between glial and glioma cells?

-hidayahcellculture-

Glioma is a cancer of the glial cells (grading from astrocytoma to stage IV glioma). Glial cells are glia...

oh...glioma is cancer, whereas glial is normal...

-hidayahcellculture-

Pretty much correct, though I guess you could say that glioma cells are a subset of glial cells (Venn diagrams FTW).
