Getting treatment for brain and spinal tumors at City of Hope puts you at the center of the most innovative and groundbreaking research and clinical trials for brain cancer in the world. It gives you access to promising treatments that directly target tumors — and the biology of your individual cancer.
Our Brain Tumor Program has several exciting experimental therapies — some of which are only offered at City of Hope — as part of our clinical trials program. We are pioneering new treatments for brain tumors including:
- Genetically fortified immune system cells called CAR T cells; a groundbreaking case study, conducted here and published in the New England Journal of Medicine, found CAR T cell therapy to be effective in the treatment of glioblastoma.
- Neural stem cells modified to deliver chemotherapy to advanced and treatment-resistant brain cancer
- Nanoparticles that unleash cancer-killing therapies directly at tumor sites
