Glioma Drug Study Recruits 

Diffuse midline gliomas are the most aggressive brain tumors of children and young adults. Researchers are looking to evaluate the safety of the anti-cancer drug Abemaciclib in the brain and blood of patients. Findings of the study can help explain how much drug gets in the brain and how drugs work to shrink high-grade gliomas. The study is enrolling adults ages 18-39 with recurrent high-grade glioma or diffuse-midline glioma. There is no cost for participation, tests, treatments or procedures. Contact the Office of Patient Recruitment at 866-444-2214 (TTY users dial 711) or Refer to study #22-C-0003. Online:
