Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) affects individuals above 65 years of age and has low median survival rate. Due to limited treatment options, lack of effective diagnosis, and palliative care, there is an urgent need to develop new therapeutic strategies to combat GBM. This review provides an overview of the current clinical trial scenario with a special focus on new targets, repurposed drugs, and technologies in the field of GBM. The use of technological advances and artificial intelligence in diagnosis and imaging is also discussed. In addition, this review also highlights the need to design a dynamic palliative care strategy for end-of-life management of patients with GBM.
