BACKGROUND In patients with glioblastoma, age < 50 years was identified as a consistent prognostic variable. In addition, the prognosis for these patients may be determined by a complex interaction between age and genetic alterations. The objective of the current study was the molecular analysis of glioblastomas from adult patients age < 50 years ("young adults"). METHODS The authors analyzed a set of 189 glioblastoma specimens. Fluorescence in situ hybridization was performed with a set of… CONTINUE READING
