Pax Genes in Adult Primary Brain Tumor Study
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.
In order to participate you must meet the following criteria:
- Are having brain surgery as part of medical management of a primary brain tumor.
This is a partial list of eligibility requirements.
