There is encouraging news about the results of a Phase 2 clinical trial on a new brain cancer vaccine.  All the patients in the trial have shown an immune response.  Researchers have also found that the vaccine is safe and less toxic than conventional treatments and that it could extend survival for people with recurrent glioblastoma.  The research was partially funded with matching grants by Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure, the National Institutes of Health, the American Brain Tumor Association and the National Brain Tumor Society.

Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure and the Chordoma Foundation are co-hosting the 57th meeting of the National Cancer Institute Director's Consumer Liaison Group (DCLG) in Chapel Hill, North Carolina from May 18 - 20th.
