It is unclear whether age at diagnosis is an important prognostic factor in patients with osteosarcoma. Understanding this relationship could yield valuable insight into therapeutic rationale, focus patient selection for clinical trials, advance molecular concepts and theories, and expand current principles guiding prognosis. Our aim was to understand if age at diagnosis is a prognostic indicator for eventual outcome, as measured by disease-free survival and overall survival in patients with… CONTINUE READING
