The purpose of this application is to provide easy access to information about selected pivotal published clinical trials in the field of neuro-oncology. It is intended for use by providers at all levels, as well as learners (medical students, residents and fellows), who want to quickly look up information and summaries of the trials while seeing patients in clinics or on rounds.
Summaries are organized by the following topics: newly diagnosed glioblastoma, recurrent glioblastoma, anaplastic glioma, low-grade glioma, glioma in the elderly and primary central nervous system lymphoma.
The app includes an intuitive search function that facilitates looking up trials by: tumor histology, names of authors, names of journals, names of chemotherapy medications and acronyms of names of trials. It also includes a share function to notify colleagues of trials included in the app. Finally, it is regularly updated and made available free of charge to users.
