Objective: Hemangiopericytomas of the central nervous system are often characterized by aggressive biological behavior and recurrent tumor growth. Hypermethylation of the MGMT (O6-methylguanine-DNA methyltransferase) promoter is an important prognostic marker and also predicts response to therapy with[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
