Pedaitric Brain Tumor Consortium (PBTC)
http://www.pbtc.org/public/inst_contact_info.htm
Nine leading academic institutions comprise the Pedaitric Brain Tumor Consortium (PBTC). The primary objective of the PBTC is to conduct rapid phase I and II clinical evaluations of new therapeutic drugs and treatment strategies in children age 0 � 21 years of age with primary central nervous system (CNS) tumors. The selection of nine leading academic institutions with extensive experience in the design and conduct of childhood cancer clinical trials ensures that PBTC protocol development will be rapid. Together these institutions are responsible for the diagnosis and treatment of the majority of children with primary brain tumors in the United States. While the primary mission of the PBTC is to identify through laboratory and clinical science superior treatment strategies for children with brain cancers, the PBTC investigators recognize their profound responsibility to meet the special needs of the children and families as they face this enormous challenge. Members are committed to working within their institutions and communities to improve support services and follow up care for these patients and their families.
