Refinement of surgical techniques by stereotactic resection of the radiological extent of a glioma alone has not resulted in cure and present methods of adjuvant therapy are not effective because they are non-selective: treatment parameters that might eradicate tumour also do irreparable damage to the normal brain. In the evaluation of any new form of adjuvant therapy the first step must therefore be the… CONTINUE READING
