DMS 0947 Exploratory Study of the Modulation of the Immune System by Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF) Blockade in Patients With Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM)


Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most frequent malignant brain tumor and it remains a
lethal disease. Approximately 4 weeks post surgery for tumor resection, patients will
proceed to standard of care treatment which currently consists of temozolomide (TMZ) with
concurrent radiation therapy (RT) for 6 weeks. This study will add bevacizumab (BEV) to the
standard of care regimen in newly diagnosed patients. The Bevacizumab will be added 2 weeks
post start of RT/TMZ. Administration of bevacizumab will continue concurrently with TMZ
every 2 weeks for 12 months. Blood samples will be obtained from these patients at 3
different time points during this study.
