A NEW TREATMENT FOR HIGH GRADE GLIOMAS OF THE BRAIN

by L.W. BRADY (Philadelphie), membre honoraire étranger.

The data confirmed the fact that repeated administrations of iodine-125 labeled anti-epidermal growth factor receptor 425 is safe and may have benefited the management of primary high grade gliomas of the brain as well as recurrent astrocytomas.

At present, a randomized control phase III trial is in the process of being initiated to evaluate the benefits that would accrue in a controlled environment.
