Long-term outcome of 4,040 children diagnosed with pediatric low-grade gliomas: An analysis of the Surveillance Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) database, Pediatric Blood and Cancer

This paper, published in Pediatric Blood and Cancer, is a collaboration between work carried out in the laboratory of Rameen Beroukhim, MD, PhD and clinical data from Mark Kieran, MD, PhD. The researchers examined the long-term survival rates of adults who had low-grade gliomas as children. Here they show that patients with previous disease have an excellent long-term survival outcome, and treatment strategies should focus on disease management with minimal toxicity.
