Researchers at Stanford are finding new treatments for brain tumors
and rapidly converting them to safe clinical practice. People with
brain tumors now have more hope for a good quality of life than ever
before. This is especially true at Stanford where we are committed to
healing our patients through science and compassion together.
Stanford researcher Albert J. Wong, MD, has discovered a variant of
a normal receptor called EGFRvIII expressed only on tumors and not
normal brain and created a vaccine targeting this abnormal receptor.
This vaccine has moved through phase 2 clinical trials and a
multicenter phase 3 clinical trial testing this vaccine is being planned.
Sharon Tong was unsure what to do when diagnosed with a meningioma. Compassionate staff at Stanford helped her choose a treatment plan that succeeded.
Clinical trials are research studies that evaluate a new medical approach, device, drug, or other treatment. As a Stanford Health Care patient, you may have access to the latest, advanced clinical trials.
Open trials refer to studies currently accepting participants. Closed trials are not currently enrolling, but may open in the future.
