Clinical trial improves neurocognitive outcomes for childhood craniopharyngioma

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is reporting phase 2 clinical trial results treating the brain tumor craniopharyngioma with proton therapy. The researchers found a similar survival rate between more targeted proton therapy and photon therapy but improved neurocognitive outcomes with the proton therapy. The clinical trial may set the new “gold standard” for pediatric craniopharyngioma treatment. The study was published today in Lancet Oncology.
