The present invention relates to an ion conducting polymer including a partially branched block copolymer; a method of preparing the same; an ion conductor including the ion conducting polymer; an electrolytic membrane including the ion conducting polymer; a membrane-electrode assembly comprising the electrolytic membrane, and a battery comprising the same; and a separation membrane for a redox flow battery including the ion conducting polymer, and a redox flow battery comprising same. Specifically, the partially branched block copolymer includes: a first block including a hydrophilic first polymer; a second block derived from a hydrophobic second polymer having two or more reactive groups respectively on its both ends, in such a way as to form branching points forming side branches on a main chain; and optionally a third block including a hydrophobic third polymer. The ion conducting polymer in the form of a partially branched block copolymer can prepare a polymer membrane having improved conductivity and superior physical properties such as tensile strength elongation at break, etc., while having the same or similar ion-exchange capacity (IEC), percentage water absorption and/or degree of dimensional change compared to conventional ion conducting polymers in the form of linear block copolymers. Because of such outstanding physical properties, the polymer membrane can be used as a membrane-electrode assembly for a fuel cell, and a redox flow battery comprising the same as a separation membrane can exhibit outstanding cell performance and maintain high discharge charge capacity retention rate even when repeatedly charged and discharged several times.

The present invention relates to a pharmaceutical composition for the prevention or treatment of cancer or Temodal resistant glioblastoma multiform comprising azathioprine as an active ingredient. The azathioprine of the present invention is not only effective in inhibiting the growth of glioblastoma multiform, a kind of brain tumor, but also excellent in treating glioblastoma multiform that displays resistance against Temodal (temozolomide), the conventional therapeutic agent for glioblastoma multiform, so that it can be effectively used as an active ingredient of a pharmaceutical composition for the prevention or treatment of such cancer as brain tumor (particularly, glioblastoma multiform) and particularly Temodal resistant glioblastoma multiform.
