  Purpose

Patients with a high grade glioma have an increasing overall survival and progression free survival after initial treatment. Because of a better performance status these patients are more often eligible for re-treatment with for example radiotherapy. However, to date only a few prospective studies on re-irradiation of gliomas exist and very little is known about the effects of re-irradiation on quality of life and cognition. This trial is designed to longitudinally establish the effects of re-irradiation on quality of life, cognition and physical performance in patients with a high grade glioma. Based on the currently available information the investigators hypothesize that quality of life after re-irradiation can be kept stable until further tumour progression.

Further study details as provided by Maastricht Radiation Oncology:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change from baseline in the palliative effect of re-irradiation in patients with a high grade glioma, defined by quality-of-life parameters [ Time Frame: baseline, 6-8weeks, 12 weeks, 18-20 weeks, 30-32 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    These Quality of life parameters include:

    • The change in the EORTC QLQ-C30 score from baseline to endpoint
    • The change in the EORTC QLQ-BN20 score from baseline to endpoint
    • The change in the EORTC QLQ-FA13 score from baseline to endpoint
    • The change in cognition from baseline to endpoint as measured by the HVLT-R, the TMT, the Stroop-test and the COWA
    • The change in grip strength from baseline to endpoint


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall survival of patients with glioblastoma and anaplastic glioma after re-irradiation [ Time Frame: 6 months after the last patient is included ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    - Months from the start of re-irradiation to death

  • Progression free survival of patients with glioblastoma and anaplastic glioma after re-irradiation [ Time Frame: 6 months after the last patient is included ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    - Months from the start of re-irradiation to tumorprogression


Estimated Enrollment: 20
Study Start Date: March 2013
Estimated Study Completion Date: September 2015
Estimated Primary Completion Date: March 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)

Other: EORTC QLQ-C30
The EORTC QLQ-C30 is a questionnaire developed to assess the quality of life of cancer patients. It is supplemented by disease specific modules for e.g. Breast, Lung, Head & Neck, Oesophageal, Ovarian, Gastric, Cervical cancer, Multiple Myeloma, Oesophago-Gastric, Prostate, Colorectal Liver Metastases, Colorectal and Brain cancer which are distributed from the EORTC Quality of Life Department. Other disease specific modules are under development but not yet validated.
Other: EORTC QLQ-BN20
The EORTC QLQ-C30 is a questionnaire developed to assess the quality of life of cancer patients. It is supplemented by disease specific modules for e.g. Breast, Lung, Head & Neck, Oesophageal, Ovarian, Gastric, Cervical cancer, Multiple Myeloma, Oesophago-Gastric, Prostate, Colorectal Liver Metastases, Colorectal and Brain cancer which are distributed from the EORTC Quality of Life Department. Other disease specific modules are under development but not yet validated.
Other: Hopkins Verbal Learning Test-Revised (HVLT-R)
The HVLT-R is a cognitive test to assess verbal learning and memory.
Other: Stroop color-word test
The Stroop Color and Word Test is a brief five minute test which is used to assess brain dysfunction, cognition, and psychopathology.
Other: Controlled oral word association test (COWA)
The COWA is a measure of verbal fluency that requires expressive language and executive functions.
Other: Jamar hand dynamometer
The Jamar hand dynamometer is a screening instrument that is used to assess grip strength.
Other: EORTC QLQ- FA13
The Fatigue Questionnaire (QLQ-FA13) is a 13-item questionnaire to assess fatigue in patients with cancer. It is meant to be used in conjunction with the EORTC QLQ-C30
Other: Trail Making Test (TMT)
The TMT The Trail Making Test is a neuropsychological test of visual attention and task switching. It consists of two parts in which the subject is instructed to connect a set of 25 dots as fast as possible while still maintaining accuracy.
