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.

Peace to you and yours,

The trial is specifically for glio re-growth. We will meet with the neuro-oncologist after that.

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...
