Cetuximab-IRDye 800CW in Detecting Tumors in Patients With Malignant Glioma Undergoing Surgery

This study is a phase 1-2 trial that evaluates the best dose of cetuximab-IRDye 800CW and how well it works in detecting tumors in patients with malignant glioma who are undergoing surgery. Cetuximab-IRDye 800CW is an optical imaging agent that may help detect tumor cells when a special camera is used.

Stanford is currently not accepting patients for this trial.
