Oligodendroglial tumors have attracted great interest in both basic and clinical neuro-oncology over the past decade. This interest is mainly due to the clinical observation that anaplastic oligodendrogliomas and anaplastic oligoastrocytomas, in contrast to the vast majority of anaplastic astrocytomas and glioblastomas, frequently respond favorably to chemotherapy. In addition, oligodendroglial tumors are associated with longer survival times than the diffuse astrocytic gliomas. These… CONTINUE READING
