In IDH-wildtype glioblastomas which meet the histopathological or molecular diagnosis criteria, it remains unclear whether the presence of TERT promotor mutations provides additional prognostic information. Based on a multicenter cohort of 466 IDH-wildtype glioblastomas (including 396 with and 70 patients without TERT promotor mutations), we found that TERT promotor mutations were neither associated with progression-free survival nor overall survival. This held true in various treatment-based or molecular subgroups. This argues against standardized analysis for TERT promotor mutation status for the purpose of prognostic or therapeutic relevance in newly diagnosed IDH-wildtype glioblastoma that otherwise meets the histopathological and molecular diagnosis criteria.
