Comparing Observation vs Radiation for Newly Diagnosed Grade II Meningiomas that have been Completely Removed through Surgery

Study Overview

The purpose of this study is to compare the approach of observation with that of treating with radiation following surgery of a grade II meningioma.

Study Description

Participants will be randomly assigned following surgery to either receive observation or to receive radiation therapy. Participants who receive radiation will do so 5 days per week for 6 1/2 to 7 weeks (33 treatments).

The doctor will continue to monitor the condition of all participants through office visits at months 3, 6 and 12 for the first year from randomization, every 6 months for year 2 and 3, then yearly for 10 years. Participants in both groups will also have MRIs at least every 6 months from randomization for 5 years, then at least yearly for 10 years.
