HFTC’s primary beneficiary is the Brain Tumor Trials Collaborative (BTTC), a group of highly respected and dedicated doctors in a network of renowned medical centers. Led by the Center for Cancer Research, NCI (National Cancer Institute) serves as the lead institution and provides the administrative infrastructure, clinical database and oversight for the collaborative. The BTTC has grown to more than 23 member institutions and has experienced unparalleled advancements in the research of alternative treatments of malignant brain tumors. Research studies, also known as clinical trials, are being conducted to learn of promising advances to cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatments that are safe and effective.
