Is overall survival in glioblastoma influenced by depressive symptoms and executive function?

Takeaway

  • The collective relationship of depressive symptoms and executive function (EF) has a significant effect on overall survival in patients with glioblastoma.

Why this matters

  • Independently, depressive symptoms and executive function have been found to influence overall survival in patients with glioblastoma; the collective effect of both on survival however, has not yet been investigated.
