NORD is an education and advocacy organization that publishes information about rare diseases and resources for patients managing them.
Anaplastic astrocytoma is a malignant (cancerous) brain tumor. It is often difficult to treat because the tumor sends tendrils deep inside healthy brain tissue, making it hard to remove surgically. These types of tumors nearly always require chemotherapy and radiation following surgery.
Dr. Bruce is a leading expert on brain tumors. As Co-Director of the Brain Tumor Center and Director of the Bartoli Brain Tumor Research Laboratory, he is at the forefront of research to find new and better treatment for astrocytomas.
He reviewed and edited the anaplastic astrocytoma page for NORD’s website, making sure that when patients come to NORD they get accurate, expert information. NORD expressed appreciation by acknowledging Dr. Bruce on the web page.
