  • Fig. 1. Subtypes of adult diffuse glioma.

    Adult gliomas from 1122 patients were grouped into seven subtypes characterized by different patterns of DNA methylation, histology, and clinical characteristics [shown as cartoon representations; adapted from (9)]. Survival is shown in months, and age is shown in years. AS, astrocytoma; OA, oligoastrocytoma; OD, oligodendroglioma; CL, classical; MES, mesenchymal; NEU, neural; PN, proneural; CODEL, codeletion; G-CIMP, glioblastoma with a hypermethylation phenotype.
