The 2016 World Health Organization Classification of Tumors of the Central Nervous System: a summary


Al Musella's Comments: (This is his personal views and are not necessarily the views of the Musella Foundation!)

 There is a new classification of brain tumors!  This will allow better comparisons among patients. For example, glioblastoma is now separated into IDH mutant and IDH wild type glioblastomas.  In some studies, the difference in survival between these 2 groups is actually more than the difference that the treatment being studied makes.
