Avastin to Treat Gliomas

Avastin is a cancer drug that has been shown and been approved to treat lung and colorectal cancers. A new study now has shown that Avastin can slow the growth and shrink tumors of a common form of brain cancer called glioma. This is exciting news.

A larger clinical trial has already been started which will involve some 160 patients to find out just how much of an improvement they can have when fighting brain cancer with Avastin and no other drug.

The results of this initial study are very encouraging. We often do not have much new and exciting news to share about brain tumors.
