Glioblastoma is the most common high-grade brain tumor in adults, which has a rapidly developing radiotherapy/chemotherapy resistance and high recurrence rate. The aim of our study is to determine the effects of bortezomib that is a quite important proteasome inhibitor on glioblastoma tumors in the 3D environment. In this study, we have performed bortezomib and temozolomide drug treatments and radiation applications to U251 cell line in 2D and 3D cultures with PCL/gelatin/graphene nanofibrous scaffolds. The best result was reached in the combination of drugs with radiation therapy that has the most decreased viability in the experiment group.
