Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This report presents the results of a phase I trial of the value of human leucocyte interferon-alpha in the treatment of glioblastoma. Twelve patients entered the trial. In one case we believe that the patient benefitted from the interferon treatment. CT scans of patients on interferon did not reveal the true extent of the tumorous tissue.
