UCLA Tests Brain Tumor Vaccine

UCLA neurosurgeon Dr. Linda Liau is recruiting patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma, considered the most aggressive type of brain tumor, for a Phase II multi-center clinical trial of a brain tumor vaccine. Outcomes of the Phase I trial have been promising.

If proven safe and effective, the vaccine would be used after surgery and in conjunction with adjuvant treatment in an effort to prevent the tumor from recurring. For more information, call (310) 267-2621.
