what are your thoughts on tocagen for gbm?

Alex Simon replied:

It sounds as though this company in San Diego has clinical trials available for patients with high grade glioma. There are several academic centers participating in those trials. It may be worthwhile to check their website to see if a center near you is participating.

is having one mutation in pten ( exon 8) a bad indicator for gbm I read having one mutation is a precancer sign?

Alex Simon replied:

Not necessarily. The whole genetic profile must be taken into consideration.

Optune is only covered by insurance companies at this point for recurrent disease. Clinical trials are available for use upfront, but you would have had to enroll prior to initiation of your treatment with Stupp.

Alex Simon replied:

Getting a second opinion from a major academic medical center like Mayo, can never hurt, since there was conflict regarding the pathology and the treating physician’s thoughts. If it is determined that your husband is asymptomatic for his disease, there is no need to intervene. If however, the disease were to progress or he should develop symptoms, intervention would be imperative.

I read somewhere that being positive for egfr is a good prognostic indicator for gbm in the elderly is that correct?

in the biomarker report I was positive for methylation. however it was listed that I was 37% methylated does the percentage have any bearing on prognosis

What would be the best treatment approach for a tumor that is unmethylated with no mutation in IDH1/2 genes? How would Mayo personalize the treatment for such a tumor?
