Pathogenesis

These tumors are characterized by a significant heterogeneity in terms of cytopathological, transcriptional and (epi)genomic features. This heterogeneity has made these cancers one of the most challenging types of cancers to study and treat. To uncover these complexities and to have better understanding of the disease initiation and progression, identification and characterization of underlying cellular and molecular pathways related to (epi)genetics of astrocytic gliomas is crucial 1).
