Abstract

This chapter focuses on the therapeutic strategies for patients with gliomas other than surgery (Chap. 6) and radiotherapy (Chap. 7). It deals with gliomas of all WHO grades and details the primary treatment as well as therapeutic options at recurrence. Chemotherapy is used at recurrence after surgery and radiotherapy, in combination with radiotherapy or as the first treatment after the histological diagnosis has been achieved, prior to radiotherapy.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
