"These early results are intriguing," said Annick Desjardins, M.D., FRCPC, principal investigator and associate professor of medicine at Duke University School of Medicine. "Current therapies for glioblastoma are limited because they cannot cross the blood-brain barrier and often do not specifically attack the tumor. This treatment appears to overcome those problems. We are eager to see additional results as we move forward with our study."
In addition to Desjardins, study authors include J. H. Sampson, K.B. Peters, T. Ranjan, G. Vlahovic, S. Threatt, J.E. Herndon II, A. Friedman, H.S. Friedman, D.D. Bigner and M. Gromeier.

Dr. Annick Desjardins, a neuro-oncologist and associate in the department of medicine at Duke University Medical Center, said low-grade gliomas occur less frequently than high-grade gliomas and are difficult to treat.The lowest level of gliomas -- grade one -- hasn't infiltrated the brain yet and can be cut out, she explained.
A doctor who is following a patient has no way to tell if the tumor will be stable for 10 years or progress in the next three months, Desjardins said."Early detection will probably allow us to control those tumors over a longer period of time," she said, before adding, "We don't have those data at this particular time to prove that."
