Statins, NSAIDS Have No Apparent Survival Benefit for Grade IV Glioma


Al Musella's Comments: (This is his personal views and are not necessarily the views of the Musella Foundation!)

 There have been other trials that show statins and NSAIDS have helped brain tumors. This study says no (except Aspirin for grade 3 gliomas).  It is hard to prove one way or another with such conflicting information.  A randomized blinded trial would be the best way but that will never happen due to cost. The next best thing is for the registry to track these drugs - but record the dosage and length of time the drugs are used, then evaluate it over a large number of patients.
