Conclusions:
In our GBM patients series younger age, surgical resection and Ki-67 PI proved to be independent prognostic factors for survival. Since all patients received radiotherapy, we suggest that tumors with a high proliferation rate were more responsive to treatment. In patients with unresectable GBM, Ki-67 PI demonstrated to be a likely predictive factor for the selection of a radical or palliative treatment approach.
