  • Question: I am researching treatment for the following condition for my husband - spinal tumor having been treated by: Surgery - Atypical meningioma WHO grade II C2-C4 - 2001 Conventional Radiotherapy (54 Gy) 2003 Surgery 2008 Surgery 2009 Cyberknife July 2009 - (CK 4404; volume 2.6; D = 16 Gy (70%) Brian has just had an MRI which has shown an increase in the size of the tumor. Previous scans following Cyberknife showed no increase in size and then a small reduction. We now have a growth with little options left. Could REOLYSIN be an option even if on trial? Any help would be appreciated. We feel that time is running out.

    Suggest first seeing a VERY experienced neurosurgeon at a MAJOR brain tumor center to see what role surgical reduction can play as it is always easier to treat a smaller tumor with chemical therapies.
