Glioblastoma Care in Downtown Chicago
The Lou and Jean Malnati Brain Tumor Institute (MBTI) is a nationally recognized leader in the fight against brain and spinal cord tumors, offering patients the most advanced clinical trial and treatment options available.
Our ability to unite the world-class resources of the National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University with the research and medical expertise of Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine allows MBTI to provide patients with the best possible care at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, one of the country's premier academic medical centers.
Doctors and researchers at the Lou and Jean Malnati Brain Tumor Institute are dedicated to developing clinical trials that provide patients with effective and innovative treatment options.
A clinical trial, one of the final stages of a long and careful research process, is a way to prove that a new treatment is safe, effective and/or has fewer side effects than standard brain tumor treatments.
Researchers develop a plan for a clinical trial, also known as a protocol, after laboratory studies indicate that a new treatment, drug or device shows promise. MBTI patients have access to clinical studies offering novel, state-of the art therapies developed by our own physicians, as well as those that are done in cooperation with large, national oncology groups.
