Trial Information

A Phase I Trial of Hypofraction Radiotherapy + Temozolomide in the Treatment of Patients With Glioblastoma Multiforme and Anaplastic Astrocytoma of the Brain


OBJECTIVES:

Primary

- To determine the maximum tolerated dose of temozolomide when given in combination with
hypofractionated intensity-modulated conformal stereotactic radiotherapy in patients
with newly diagnosed de novo glioblastoma multiforme or anaplastic astrocytoma.

Secondary

- To determine the time to neuroradiological evidence of tumor recurrence or progression
in patients treated with this regimen.

- To determine the survival time of patients treated with this regimen.

- To determine the time spent in a Karnofsky performance status of 60-100%.

OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study of temozolomide.

Beginning 1-3 weeks following surgery or biopsy, patients receive oral temozolomide once
daily for 5 weeks. Beginning 1 week after starting temozolomide, patients also undergo
hypofractionated intensity-modulated conformal stereotactic radiotherapy once daily 5 days a
week for 3 weeks.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed at 1 month, 2 months, and 3
months, and then every 3 months thereafter.
