Study Identifies Factors Associated with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma that Indicate Better Survival

Approximately 10% of patients who develop diffuse pontine glioma live longer than one year


Diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG) is a brainstem malignancy that occurs relatively rarely in childhood and young adulthood and carries a median survival of less than one year. Nevertheless, approximately 10% of patients with DIPG have been reported in the literature to experience longer survival. In a study by Lindsey F. Hoffman, University of Colorado in Denver, USA appearing in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, some characteristics that differentiate long term survivors (LTSs) from short term survivors (STSs) have been delineated.
