Introduction: Angiogenesis, inflammation and apoptosis have an important place in the carcinogenesis of high-grade gliomas (HGG). We evaluated the postoperative levels and the prognostic importance of tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF alpha), interleukin 6 (IL6), endoglin (CD105), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). M65 and M30 as markers of inflammation, angiogenesis and apoptosis in patients with HGG.
