Abstract

Classification, genetics, epidemiology, and growth kinetics of brain tumors in humans are discussed and the relevance of the available animal models of neural tumors for studies in experimental therapy evaluated. Not intended to provide a comprehensive review, the workshop's aim was “to provide workers in experimental and clinical neuro-oncology with a critical evaluation of current knowledge of the biological basis of oncogenesis and neoplastic growth in the mammaliam nervous system, together with an overview of problems deserving priority in future investigations.”
