        I just received this information from another site that I get emails from.( I search day and night for somehting to help my husband. We are in our 6th round of tem. and the last MRI showed re-growth in the tumor bed and 2 other tumors outside the bed.)  TRAIL helps the immune system suppress tumor development. Because protein is part of the immune system, it is not toxic to the body like Chemo. or Rad. The res...

            A new one at the Brain Center University Hospital Cincinnati ohio. The tumor board will meet this Wed. and we will go from there. There was re-growth after being on the temodar. The trial is specifically for glio re-growth. We will meet with the neuro-oncologist after that.

              Hi Rick, My husband was a gunner on a helicopter in Nam. He was diagnoised with GBM IV on April 28th this year. Surgery, radiation and many rounds of Chemo. MRI done on Dec. 26th showed growth. Waiting for clinical trial to open. Have had multiple conversations with VA administration and advocates for vets, All including Docs feel no relation to agent orange and Glios, because of the rapid growth. But I suppose tim...

                Rose, I have been thinking about you and your husband for weeks. I tried to call and could not get through. Have been praying. I am so sorry that the recent treatment did not work. This monster is horrible. There will be a trial open at UC soon, will he qualify for that? Thats what we are waiting for. Mike is doing okay. That last MRI gave alot of confusion, maybe growth, maybe necrosis, maybe psedo growth. Back o...

                  Hi, My husband was diagnosed with Glioblastoma Multiform IV in April of this month. Normally after surgery they do lab tests to figure out what type. Glios as said before can re-grow in the brain or can also move to the spine, but cannot move to other parts of the body. There are other types of tumors that grow in the brain but that is not the primary source of the cancer. I do not know how long you have been in this...

                    All I was trying to do was pass on information. It will be the last time.

                      Krissypoo1960 Jackie, Ihave heard that many natural things help with cancers of all types. My opinion is people have nothing to lose where GBMs are concerned. The bottom line is, if it's cheap and successful, the FDA will make sure that it doesn't pass the test. Never give up. I hope your husband is doing well.
