Diffuse gliomas are tumors that affect the brain and spinal cord. Gliomas that develop in people with mutations in IDH1 and IDH2 genes are especially aggressive. A clinical trial led by Jing Wu, M.D., Ph.D., Lasker Clinical Research Scholar in the Neuro-Oncology Branch, is researching a drug therapy for these tumors. The trial will take place at the NIH Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, and there is no cost for participation.
