We investigated the possible influence of race on the survival of patients with malignant gliomas enrolled in three consecutive trials of the Radiation Therapy Oncology Group (RTOG) retrospectively using the group's statistical database. There were no statistical differences between the survival rates for black patients with glioblastoma multiforme (GEM) and those for the white patients. The limited influence of therapy on this disease may be responsible in part for this result.
