|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment|
|Low Grade Gliomas||Radiation: Proton Radiation Therapy|
- Participants will receive radiation therapy for 6 weeks, given in daily doses, Monday through Friday, for a total of 30 treatments.
- A medical history and physical examination will be performed prior to the start of radiation treatment, weekly during the 6 weeks of radiation and after the finish of radiation performed at 3 and 6 months and then annually for 5 years.
- Hormonal function tests will be taken prior to the start of radiation treatment and after the finish of radiation treatment at 3 and 6 months, and annually for five years to assess the participants hormonal functions as they relate to the pituitary gland's function.
- A brain MRI will be performed prior to the start of radiation treatment and then performed at 3 and 6 months after radiation treatment then annually for 5 years.
- A neurocognitive exam will be performed prior to the start of radiation therapy, a limited exam 6 months after the completion of radiation therapy, and a complete exam annually for 5 years.
- Quality of Life and Emotional Well-Being Questionnaires will be done before radiation begins, 2 months after radiation treatment, 6 months after radiation treatment and then annually for 5 years.
