Age, WHO grade, and extent of resection represent strong prognostic factors in meningiomas. The majority of further clinical factors and laboratory findings reflects disease according to the WHO grade. Therefore, research should focus on heterogeneity of prognostic factors within a given WHO grade. This may allow to identify also factors predictive for response to systemic therapy, and to promote the design of studies which stratify according to these factors.
