Brain Tumor : Gliomas
Low grade gliomas are among the most common primary CNS (central nervous system) neoplasms (an abnormal new mass of tissue that serves no purpose) of childhood.
Low-grade gliomas are also classified according to the location of the brain from which they originate. The commonly used therapies are surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. This study will determine the maximum tolerated dose of drug called AZD6244 (selumetinib) in children 12 years or over with gliomas which have returned following radiation and /or chemotherapy.The duration of the study will be four and half years.
