“Happy to share our just published study!

“Clinicopathological and molecular landscape of 5-year IDH-wild-type glioblastoma survivors: A multicentric retrospective study”

Five-year glioblastoma (GBM) survivors are the minority of the isocitrate dehydrogenase (IDH)-wild-type GBM patients, and their molecular fingerprint is still largely unexplored.

Highlights:
• This is a multicenter retrospective study on a large cohort of GBM-LTS patients from nine Italian institutions.
• The mutational profile of pathogenic variants and CNV was similar in LTS and STS.
• LTS show no episignature but a global higher methylation in CpG islands.
• Methylation levels of distinct gene promoters correlated with prognosis.

Special thanks to the Italian Ministry of Health, Alleanza Contro il Cancro, AIRC – The Italian Foundation for Cancer Research ETS and Fondazione Umberto Veronesi ETS.”
