PRESS RELEASE Saturday 5 November, 2016 BRAIN TUMOUR CHARACTERISTICS COULD HELP PREDICT SURVIVAL IN PEOPLE OVER 70.
CHARACTERISTICS like seizures, location of the tumour, and pressure in the brain, give insight into length of survival and treatment options for brain tumour patients over the age of 70, according to new research* presented at the National Cancer Research Institute’s (NCRI) Cancer Conference in Liverpool. In order to understand which treatments would be most appropriate for different patients, we need to understand what features predict how long patients with the disease survive. This new study looked at the records of 339 brain tumour patients over the age of 70. Overall, the study found that patients survived for an average of around four months and just four per cent were alive two years after their diagnosis**.
Researchers based at the Brighton and Sussex Medical School, Beatson West of Scotland Cancer Centre, and The Royal Marsden Hospital, showed that patients with brain tumours who went to the doctor because of seizures were a third more likely to survive longer than those who presented with other symptoms such as speech impairment, confusion or weakness.NCRI-Brain-tumour-characteristics-could-help-predict-survival-in-people-over-70-05112016 – Copy
