Radiation Therapy Followed by Bleomycin in Treating Adult Patients With Newly Diagnosed Supratentorial Glioblastoma Multiforme
RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to damage tumor cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining radiation therapy with chemotherapy may kill more tumor cells.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of radiation therapy followed by bleomycin in treating adult patients who have newly diagnosed supratentorial glioblastoma multiforme.
Brain and Central Nervous System Tumors
Biological: bleomycin sulfate
Procedure: adjuvant therapy
Procedure: conventional surgery
Radiation: radiation therapy
|Study Design:||Primary Purpose: Treatment|
|Official Title:||A Phase II Trial Of Conventional Radiation Therapy Followed By Intratumoral Bleomycin Delivered Using A Refillable, Sustained Release Device (IND# 46,592) For The Treatment Of Supratentorial Glioblastoma|
|Study Start Date:||June 2001|
|Primary Completion Date:||January 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
- Determine the median survival time of patients with newly diagnosed supratentorial glioblastoma multiforme treated with radiotherapy followed by sustained release intratumoral bleomycin.
- Determine the feasibility of this regimen in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Within 4 weeks after surgical resection, patients receive radiotherapy daily 5 days a week for 6 weeks.
Within 2-6 weeks after completion of radiotherapy or at disease progression during radiotherapy, patients undergo surgical implantation of a modified Ommaya reservoir within the central area of the tumor. Patients then receive sustained release bleomycin intratumorally via the reservoir once a week for up to 2 years in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Patients are followed every 3 months for 2 years, every 6 months for 2 years, and then annually thereafter.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 72 patients will be accrued for this study within 5 months.
