The Alliance for Clinical Trials in Oncology seeks to reduce the impact of cancer by uniting a broad community of scientists
and clinicians who are committed to the prevention and treatment of cancer.
Primary malignant brain tumors are uniformly fatal, and the five-year survival rate for the highest grade of malignant glial neoplasm (GBM) is now less than 4 percent. Improvements in treatment methods have provided some progress; however, how long patients survive (called median survival) remains at just more than one year from initial diagnosis. Current therapies have shown modest improvement in survival of recurrent GBM patients.
