Clinical Trials

Maybe you are researching all the conventional treatments for brain tumors, like surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy and are still looking for more options. You might want to investigate Clinical Trials. A Clinical Trial is how the government monitors doctors and researchers who are searching for new medications and treatments for illnesses. Clinical trials for brain tumors are open to newly diagnosed patients as well as patients with recurring tumors. Please visit the American Brain Tumor Association's "Primer" for additional information, as well as the links below. And please check with your doctors as well.
