Consultation

The DIPG experts participating in the International DIPG Registry are available to patients, their families, and physicians for consultation. They may be able to provide information on or recommend active clinical trials for which patients may be eligible.

Consultations are usually most efficient when the diagnosing or treating physician begins the process, since the consulting physician will need to review the patient’s medical records. As a patient or family member, you may ask the treating physician to contact us for a consultation. However, patients or family members may also contact Registry experts directly.

Unsure who to contact? Send us a message and we'll help.
