abstract

  • Patients with anaplastic oligoastrocytoma have distinct outcomes based upon grade (OA3 vs. OA4) and in comparison with pure astrocytoma (AA or GBM). Future trials which include more than one histologic entity need to report results by cell type and grade and account for the varying prognoses in interpreting treatment outcomes.
