Wading through clinicaltrials.gov?
September 2, 2014 7:42 PM Subscribe
I'm looking for clinical trial information for a loved one diagnosed with gliobastoma and the options on clinicaltrials. gov are somewhat baffling and numerous (all 907 of them
). How do I narrow it down?

I asked the neuro-oncologist (UCSF) who is treating the patient if there were any clinical trials to look into and she basically said no. We're seeking a second opinion at City of Hope but time is of the essence. We've been told the tumor is inoperable and aggressive and that we should pursue radiation with chemotherapy (temozolomide). I know the overall prognosis is grim but we want to be sure we're exhausting all avenues.
