Proton Radiotherapy May Be Viable Option for Pediatric Brain Tumor

Phase 2 trial data showed acceptable toxicity and similar survival as conventional radiotherapy for childhood medulloblastoma.

Valproic Acid, Levetiracetam Do Not Improve Survival in Newly Diagnosed GBM

Valproic acid and levetiracetam do not improve survival outcomes in patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma, according to a recently published study.

No Need to Exclude Patients With Renal Insufficiency From Clinical Trials

Excluding patients with renal insufficiency but good performance status from clinical trials due to concern of excessive hematologic toxicity or poor outcomes may not be necessary with appropriate dosing modifications.

New Studies Reveal Long-Term Vision-related Health Concerns of Survivors of Childhood Retinoblastoma and Brain Cancer

Optical Probes That Illuminate Solid Tumors in Surgery Move One Step Closer to Reality

Optical probes that make cancer cells glow and improve surgical tumor removal are in phase I and II clinical trials in humans. The probes could be commonplace in the next 5 to 10 years, hypothesize the researchers.

Mapping Tumor Position During Lung Function Improves Radiation Therapy for Lung Cancer

A new clinical trial aims to apply advanced image analysis techniques to 4D CT scans. Already a standard step in targeting lung cancer radiotherapy, the trial seeks to use the scans map areas of lung function without additional testing.
