(OPEN):
PHOENIX-BASED "BARROW NEUROLOGICAL INSTITUTE" RECENTLY LAUNCHED A 50-MILLION-DOLLAR EFFORT, TO IDENTIFY NEW TREATMENT-OPTIONS FOR THE DEADLIEST FORM OF BRAIN-CANCER:  THE NEW "IVY BRAIN-TUMOR CENTER" AT BARROW IS THE RESULT OF THE SINGLE-LARGEST GRANT IN THE HISTORY OF BRAIN-TUMOR RESEARCH--AND SEEKS TO DRAMATICALLY ACCELERATE DRUG-DISCOVERY AND CLINICAL-TESTING FOR "GLIOBLASTOMA" [LIKE "GLEE"]DOCTOR NADER ["NAH-DUR"] SANAI IS THE CENTER'S DIRECTOR...

(SANAI):
"
BETWEEN 1998 AND 2014, 78 INVESTIGATIONAL BRAIN-TUMOR DRUGS ENTERED ADVANCED CLINICAL-TRIAL EVALUATION--AND 75 FAILED.  THIS LACK OF NEW DRUGS LED US TO LAUNCH A BOLD NEW APPROACH, WITH WHAT WE CALL 'PHASE ZERO' CLINICAL-TRIALS.  BARROW ALREADY TREATS MORE BRAIN-TUMORS THAN ANY OTHER HOSPITAL IN THE NATION.  BUT, THE NEW 'IVY BRAIN-TUMOR CENTER' AT BARROW WILL ULTIMATELY MEAN THAT EVERY PATIENT WILL HAVE THE OPTION FOR AN EXPERIMENTAL THERAPY.  THIS APPROACH CAN SHORTEN THE EVALUATION OF NEW DRUGS, FROM AN AVERAGE OF FIVE YEARS TO ONLY SIX MONTHS--AND AT A FRACTION OF THE COST.  AND, THANKS TO THE 'BEN AND CATHERINE IVY FOUNDATION'S' GRANT, IT'S OUR HOPE THAT 'GLIOBLASTOMA' WILL MEET ITS MATCH."
