Clinical Trails at Rush Pax Genes in Adult Primary Brain Tumor Study
Clinical Trial Protocol ID
10012903

Clinical Trial Investigator Name
Mary Newman

Clinical Trial Title

Identification and modification of pax genes in adult primary brain tumors



Clinical Trial Protocol Description

Patients who are candidates for brain surgery during which brain tumor tissue will be taken out as part of the standard surgical procedure are invited to donate a portion of this tissue and medical information about themselves in order to allow physicians to study brain tumors. The purpose of this study is to determine the activity and effects of two specific genes in brain tumors. These genes may be involved in the growth of brain tumors. Once identified from the tissue of brain tumors, their activity will be stopped along with growth of the tumor sample. The results from this study will provide valuable information on the role of these specific genes in brain tumors.
