Parsa, MD, PhD, chair of neurological surgery at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, is chair of the the largest randomized brain tumor vaccine trial ever funded by the National Cancer Institute. Northwestern Medicine® recently joined a landmark clinical trial to investigate if a vaccine made from a patient's own brain tumor is effective in slowing tumor progression and extending survival. The randomized phase II trial will study how well giving the study vaccine with or without Avastin (bevacizumab) works in treating patients with recurrent glioblastoma multiforme.
