Untreated Childhood Visual Pathway Glioma

Your child's treatment may be one of the following:

  1. For patients without symptoms or progression, observation without treatment.
  2. Surgery.
  3. Radiation therapy.
  4. Chemotherapy.
  5. Clinical trials evaluating chemotherapy to shrink the tumor and delay radiation therapy.

Check for U.S. clinical trials from NCI's PDQ Cancer Clinical Trials Registry that are now accepting patients with untreated childhood visual pathway glioma. For more specific results, refine the search by using other search features, such as the location of the trial, the type of treatment, or the name of the drug. General information about clinical trials is available from the NCI Web site.
