Mortality in glioblastoma multiforme and giant cell glioblastoma

Takeaway

  • There is no statistically significant difference in mortality between glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) and giant cell glioblastoma (GCG), however older age, being female, and non-Hispanic-Latino ethnicity correlates with increased mortality.

Why this matters

    The identification of several demographic variables that correlate with increased mortality in GBM and GCG may assist clinicians in predicting prognosis.
