Clinical trials for brain tumours

When a new treatment for brain tumours is being developed, it is tested through clinical trials. This research involves people affected by brain tumours and helps gain understanding of their response to the treatment. Here you can learn more about clinical trials for brain tumours.

Clinical trials are a vital step in making sure that new treatments reach patients. Only 3% of brain tumour patients, compared to 7.5% of all cancer patients, are currently enrolled in trials, yet research shows that people want to be asked. This is an issue we are determined to address.

Clinical trials are vital in this field as they help medical professionals understand how to treat brain tumours. By taking part in a clinical trial, or supporting your child to take part, you would have the chance to be one of the first people to benefit from a new treatment. However there is the possibility that the treatment may not be as effective as the standard.
