Learning About Advances for Prevention, Diagnosis and Treatment

 
The BTTC has experienced unparalleled advancements in the research of alternative treatments of malignant brain tumors. Subsequently research studies, also known as clinical trials, are being conducted to learn about promising advances for cancer prevention, diagnosis as well as safe and effective treatments.
 
Since its inception, the BTTC has completed accrual on a number of clinical trials. Once data from the trials is compiled and results published, we will gleam insightful conclusions in our fight against brain cancer.
 
In addition, we have several exciting new research concepts being presented by our BTTC members. We will share them with you once they are open for accrual.

Clinical Trial Basics

Clinical trials are in-depth medical research studies conducted to understand whether promising approaches to cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment are safe and effective. Within the world of cancer research, four types of clinical trials exist — prevention, diagnosis, screening and quality of life.

BTTC Clinical Trials

The current treatment of malignant gliomas, the most common brain tumor in adults, remains challenging and less effective than desired. We have several trials that are either open or in development. These trials hope to deliver results that provide a more effective treatment therapy in controlling the tumor and increasing survival.
