The “Brain Tumor Trials Collaborative”
Here’s a group I just discovered – the Brain Tumor Trials Collaborative: http://www.bttconline.org/ .
According to their website “The mission of the BTTC is to develop and perform hypothesis-based, state-of-the-art clinical trials in a collaborative and collegial environment emphasizing innovation and meticulous attention to protocol compliance and data quality. Through these efforts, the BTTC will strive to advance treatments for patients with neuro-oncologic illness with recognition of the importance of merging good scientific method with concern for patient well-being and outcome.”
I wanted to write about them because of their emphasis on clinical trials. If I understand their website correctly, they current are fielding three open trials. You can read about them here: http://www.bttconline.org/research-clinical-trials/bttc-clinical-trials
