There are many ways you can help children and their families get the care they need.
Our scientists are conducting research studies to help clinicians better understand and treat malignant gliomas. We are a member of the Pediatric Oncology Therapeutic Experimental Investigators Consortium (POETIC), a collaborative clinical research group offering experimental therapies to patients with relapsed or refractory disease. We are also the New England Phase I Center of the Children's Oncology Group.
Through these groups, a number of novel therapies are available for children with both newly diagnosed and current brain tumors. Two new protocols include a phase II trial of radiation therapy, cetuximab and irinotecan for children with newly diagnosed malignant glioma and diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma.
Participation in any clinical trial is completely voluntary: We will take care to fully explain all elements of the treatment plan prior to the start of the trial, and you may remove your child from the medical study at any time.
