  Limitations and Caveats
  Hide Limitations and Caveats

Limitations of the study, such as early termination leading to small numbers of participants analyzed and technical problems with measurement leading to unreliable or uninterpretable data
Limitations include early pt termination leading to small numbers of subjects analyzed (eg no BMD study at 6 and/or 12 mos)secondary to the poor overall survival (eg median survival 3-9 mos)associated with recurrent glioblastoma multiforme(GBM) pts.
