New clinical trials at JFK Brain Tumor Center in Edison, NJ
I usually do not list trials at an individual brain tumor center, but this one is special. These are 4 of my favorite trials, all done at one medical center, and they are also certified to use the Optune treatment as well. For more information, look at virtualtrials.com click on LEARN ABOUT then Tocagen, then Learn About and Vaccines.

A Phase 3 Clinical Trial Evaluating DCVax-L, Autologous Dendritic Cell Pulsed with Tumor Lysate Antigen for the Treatment of Newly Diagnosed Glioblastoma. * This trial needs to be screened prior to resection as the vaccine is made from the patients own tumor tissue.
