Clinical trials are research studies where patients receive promising new approaches to brain tumor treatment. The doctors who conduct these trials are hoping to identify safe, effective brain tumor treatments that improve on existing approaches.
It is important, as a brain tumor patient, to research all the available treatment options – including clinical trials – before making any treatment decisions.
There are other treatment trials that are looking for people who have already been treated for their brain tumor.
The NCI’s “How to Find a Brain Tumor Treatment Trial: 10-Step Guide” can help you decide if a clinical trial is right for you.
The following websites provide a comprehensive, searchable database of available brain tumor clinical trials.
