Eligibility Criteria

Age 18+ · All Participants · 10 Total Inclusion Criteria

Mark “yes” if the following statements are true for you:
You have a life expectancy ≥ 12 weeks.
You have a history of a histologically confirmed diagnosis of glioblastoma per WHO criteria.
You are willing and able to comply with the trial testing, procedures, and follow-up schedule.
You have radiographic evidence of tumor progression/recurrence with measurable disease (≥ 1 cm to ≤ 5cm bidirectional diameters) by contrast-enhancement on MRI, according to RANO criteria.
The interval since completion of cranial radiotherapy must be > 6 months, unless there is tissue confirmation of tumor recurrence/progression outside the previous radiation treatment field, in which case the interval must be at least 12 weeks.

Michael Gill holds a Bachelors of Science in Integrated Science and Mathematics from McMaster University. During his degree he devoted considerable time modeling the pharmacodynamics of promising drug candidates. Since then, he has leveraged this knowledge of the investigational new drug ecosystem to help his father navigate clinical trials for multiple myeloma, an experience which prompted him to co-found Power Life Sciences: a company that helps patients access randomized controlled trials.
