Our sixth annual ride benefiting The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center will be happing on October 12th, 2013. The event is named Sam’s Jam after one of the founding members of Riders for the Cure, the Employee Motorcycle group of MD Anderson Cancer Center. Phase I/II study of reirradiation of recurrent or progressive brainstem glioma: This study investigates the use of re-irradiation in the highly aggressive form of cancer known as brainstem glioma. This Phase I/II study will be conducted to evaluate the safety of re-irradiation with higher doses. The main goal of treatment will be to improve symptoms and quality of life. This protocol may identify the optimal dose of re-irradiation and define the efficacy, particularly regarding quality of life, therefore offering a treatment option for patients with an incurable disease. Principal Investigator: Anita Mahajan, M.D.
