Clinical trials we fund

Clinical trials are research studies involving people. They test various aspects of new drugs, treatment regiments, and/or lifestyle changes. 

There are two main types of clinical trials: interventional or observational. Interventional trials test a particular intervention such as new drugs or treatment regimens; whereas, observational studies aim to find out what happens to people in different situations. 

Clinical trials are vital as they rigorously test new treatments to see if they are safe and effective before it becomes widely available. 

The Brain Tumour Charity are committed to advancing research in the field of brain tumours and we fund a range of clinical trials including testing new therapies and treatment regimens, as well as interventions to improve quality of life.

Anaplastic glioma

A grant to enable new analysis of an ongoing international clinical trial to impact on future trials.


A quality of life trial that will evaluate the use of lifestyle and behavioural changes as a way to manage fatigue.
