Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants Experiencing Adverse Events (AEs) [ Time Frame: Complete study duration & 30 days after completion (up to approximately 7.5 months) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    An AE was defined as any unfavorable and unintended sign, symptom, or disease temporally associated with the use of vaccine, whether or not considered related to the medicinal product.

  • Number of Participants Experiencing Unexpected Adverse Drug Reactions (ADRs) [ Time Frame: Complete study duration & 30 days after completion (up to approximately 7.5 months) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    An unexpected ADR was defined as an adverse reaction, whose nature, severity, specificity, or outcome is not consistent with the term or description used in the applicable product information.

  • Number of Temozolomide Misuse or Abuse Events [ Time Frame: Complete study duration & 30 days after completion (up to approximately 7.5 months) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

    Drug abuse was defined as the use of the study drug for a non-therapeutic effect.

    Misuse was defined as use of the study medication in a way that was not prescribed.


  • Number of Temozolomide Drug Interactions [ Time Frame: Complete study duration & 30 days after completion (up to approximately 7.5 months) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Drug interaction was defined as a chemical or physiological reaction that can occur when two different drugs are taken together.

  • Efficacy: Number of Participants Experiencing Complete Response (CR), Partial Response (PR), or Stable Disease(SD) [ Time Frame: Complete study duration (up to approximately 6.5 months) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The response ratings were based on the judgment of the investigator.
