Experimental: Carmustine Sustained Release Implant
For subjects in this group, they will accept intracranially implanted carmustine intraoperatively.
As Experimental group, subjects will accept specified wafers of carmustine in the cavity while gliomas maximally be resected.
Sham Comparator: Tumor Resection Surgery
For subjects in this control group, they accept no implants while gliomas maximally be resected.
Procedure: tumor resection surgery
For this group, subjects will accept routine tumor resection surgery and place no implant wafers.
Other Name: blank control group
Malignant gliomas recur mostly 2 cm within originated area. Local therapies therefore become particular important. Gliadel wafer developed in the States and marketed in the developed countries is an example of such treatments. The product in this study, Carmustine Sustained Release Implant (CASANT), is similar to that of Gliadel wafer as for the API(Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient), but different as for drug delivering system. As required, the preliminary clinical studies were conducted in China. Based on the results of phase I/II , 8-10 wafers containing given dose of BCNU will be administered intracranially in this phase III to the tumor resected cavity to investigate the safety and efficacy in the treatment of primary malignant glioma in 236 patients.
