- Question: My nephew has a glioma of the brain stem. He had radiotherapy at the start of the year and it shrunk the tumor. However, it has started to grow back. Prognoses to date have been negative. Is there any hope out there please? Anything new that may have recently been discovered or entered testing? He will be 7 years old in January.
Contact either Dr. Michaelski at Gt. Ormond Street or Dr. Brada at Marsden
Hospital in Sutton and ask for a referral. Your nephew needs to be in
expert hands. There are many Phase 1 and 2 studies available for this
