[22 May 2019] The 2019 / 2020 World Edition of the IBTA’s Brain Tumour magazine has been published and is now available for viewing online on our website. Now in its tenth year, Brain Tumour is a unique publication that reaches deep into the international brain tumour community to deliver an exclusive selection of inspiring and thought-provoking articles. Distributed free of charge, 14,000 print copies are sent to recipients in 111 countries and the magazine is made widely available at international neuro-oncology and cancer conferences.
This edition of Brain Tumour contains feature articles, news items, interviews with eminent medical experts, and stories from patients, caregivers and patient advocacy organisations. This issue features an inspirational article by Yaron Butterfield, who was diagnosed with a glioblastoma brain tumour 15 years ago while working as a cancer researcher. Topics also covered include the pressing need to overcome barriers to patients enrolling on brain tumour clinical trials, the exciting NCI-CONNECT initiative, and an exclusive report of the Indian Society for Neuro-Oncology 2019 conference in Bhopal. This year's edition also features our directory of country-specific brain tumour patient and caregiver charities and not-for-profit organisations.
We would like to warmly thank all the contributors to the magazine and hope that our readers find this issue informative, engaging and inspiring.
