The "Risk" in Pediatric Low-Grade Glioma


The "Risk" in Pediatric Low-Grade Glioma

Jason Fangusaro et al. Cancer Cell. .


In this issue of Cancer Cell, Ryall et al. report on the largest clinically and molecularly characterized cohort of pediatric low-grade gliomas (pLGGs) published to date. They provide new insight into the pLGG molecular landscape and a novel risk stratification system with the potential to revolutionize prognostication and impact treatment.
