- Question: Will receiving GLIADEL® Wafer prevent the use of other cancer treatments my doctor might want to use?
Possibly. GLIADEL® Wafer therapy will not prevent you from undergoing any standard treatments, but it may prevent you from participating in some clinical trials of unapproved compounds or receiving experimental drugs. You and your doctor should review the details of clinical trials you are considering to see if GLIADEL® Wafer can be incorporated into your treatment regimen.
