Objective: 5-aminolaevulinic acid (5-ALA) has improved surgical therapy of malignant gliomas. However, there is a lack of knowledge concerning 5-ALA uptake and fluorescence kinetic in different histologies. Aim of this study was to detect differences in malignant gliomas concerning uptake kinetic and[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
