Can benign brain tumors be treated with a vaccine similar to the vaccine treatment being studied for malignant brain tumors? Is this a potential treatment option? Are there clinical trials underway to develop/study vaccines for treatment of benign brain tumors?
Currently, there are no vaccines with proven efficacy for malignant brain tumors. There are currently many trials in various phases attempting to show a benefit in survival and control. There are ongoing trials investigating drug options that may halt the growth of meningiomas, but currently not a specific vaccine trial.
