Prognostic factors for long-term survival after glioblastoma.

Abstract

Long-term survivors of glioblastoma (GB) are rare. Several variables besides tumor size and location determine a patient's survival chances: age at diagnosis, where younger patients often receive more aggressive treatment that is multimodal; functional status, which has a significant negative correlation with age; and histologic and genetic markers.
