Proton Therapy for Glioblastoma
Can proton therapy be a better option for GBM than regular radiation?
Robert Lustig, MD, Pediatric & Adult Radiation Oncologist at Penn Medicine, responds:
Protons have not been proven better in controlling GBM compared to standard treatment. There are studies now being started to see if higher doses of protons are better than standard treatment.
