The chart below shows all the drug treatments being tested for different conditions in NF1 and NF2 at the present time. "Phase 0" is very early stage testing, "Phase 1" tests for drug safety, and "Phase 2" tests whether the treatment works. (Sometimes "Phase 1" and "Phase 2" are combined as "Phase1/2.") "Phase 3" tests whether the new treatment is better than existing treatments. This clinical pipeline includes completely new drugs, as well as variations of existing drugs, and new uses of existing drugs. Many of these potential treatments came out of research sponsored by the Children's Tumor Foundation.
