Large-scale study identifies new epigenetic subtypes of brain cancer.
Diffuse gliomas represent 80% of all malignant brain tumours. Adult diffuse gliomas are classified and graded according to histological criteria. However, although histopathology classification is well established it suffers from unstandardized, and sometimes confusing, intra- and inter-observer variability particularly among grade II-III tumours.
