Phase II trial of ritonavir/lopinavir in patients with progressive or recurrent high-grade gliomas
Current therapies for recurrent or progressive high-grade gliomas (HGG, WHO grade 3–4) produce a 6-month progression-free survival of only 10–25%. Migration and invasion by HGG is mediated in part by… Expand
