- Important advances have recently been made in understanding brain tumors, including the genetic characterization of glioblastoma multiforme, one of the deadliest forms of brain tumor, but much work remains to be done before better therapies are available.
- There still remain daunting obstacles to the development of new treatments and there are no strategies for screening or early detection of brain tumors.
Congress can help fight brain tumors by increasing investment in the National Institutes for Health and National Cancer Institute, and by maintaining investment in the Peer Reviewed Cancer Research Program, a part of the Department of Defense. By increasing the amount of research on brain tumors, patients, caregivers, and all Americans will benefit from new therapies, and hopefully cures.
