Low-grade brain tumours radiation plus chemotherapy is best treatment

The study comes from a randomized phase III clinical trial of 251 people with grade 2 gliomas, tumours that occur mostly in young adults and cause progressive neurological problems and premature death. Researchers at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center
