Exploring non-traditional medicine use in glioma patients

Takeaway

  • People with glioblastoma were more likely to use CAM compared to people with other lower grade tumors a French study suggests.

Why this matters

  • Complementary and alternative medicine includes non-traditional medical treatments which are now being used increasingly by cancer patients.

  • It is important that CAM use is discussed with people with glioma and their caregivers to identify patient needs, their preferences, and potential interactions with tumor specific treatments.
