Abstract

33 consecutive patients with brain glial tumors underwent serial stereotactic biopsies and (3H)-thymidine in vitro investigation. The labeling index has been determined in each case and matched with the WHO histological classification. The feasibility and the accuracy of cell kinetics study applied to stereotactic biopsies are discussed in view of future application for prognostic purposes. Particular attention is given to the description of the method.
