tients) showed relatively higher expression of NOB1 (P,0.01, Figure 7C). Similar results were obtained after stratification of patients into low-grade glioma (P = 0.028; Figure 7D) and high-grade glioma (P,0.01; Figure 7E). These results indicated that higher levels of NOB1 mRNA are associated with a relatively shorter survival.DiscussionMalignant glioma remains the most common and fatal brain tum
