Mature Results of a Phase I SRS Dose Escalation Trial in Combination with an EGFR Inhibitor Gefitinib in Recurrent Malignant Gliomas and a Follow-up Pilot Trial with an EGFR and VEGFR Dual Inhibitor


Changhu Chen, MD, from the University of Colorado Denver discusses the mature results of a phase I SRS dose escalation trial in combination with an EGFR inhibitor gefitinib in recurrent malignant gliomas and a follow-up pilot trial with an EGFR and VEGFR dual inhibitor. Before he goes into detail about these trials, their methods and results, he gives some background about recurrent malignant gliomas and their treatment.
