Brief Summary:

Standard treatment for glioblastomas includes radiation and chemotherapy with a drug called temozolomide (Temodar); however, glioblastomas frequently develop resistance to standard treatment and recur or progress. Glioblastomas are known to have decreased levels of oxygen compared to normal tissues. There is evidence that these lower oxygen levels in glioblastomas may contribute to their ability to resist treatment effects of radiation and chemotherapy. In this study we will look to increase the oxygen concentration within the glioblastoma by adding hyperbaric treatments (the experimental part of this study) to standard treatment with radiation and temozolomide in order to see whether increasing the oxygen concentration within the tumor increases the tumor-killing ability of standard radiation and chemotherapy.

In addition, the investigators are interested to evaluate the effect of this treatment protocol on a person's quality of life and level of stress, and, therefore, the investigators will ask subjects to complete several brief questionnaires while they are on-study.

Official Title: Phase II Pilot Trial of Hyperbaric Hyperoxygenation in Conjunction With Radiotherapy and Temozolomide In Adults With Newly Diagnosed Glioblastomas

Intervention Details:
  • Other: Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
    in addition to standard radiation and chemotherapy, you will also receive the experimental hyperbaric treatment prior to each radiation treatment (Monday-Friday) during the initial six weeks of treatment. Prior to the first hyperbaric treatment. The hyperbaric treatment lasts approximately thirty minutes. During the hyperbaric treatment, the participant will lie on a stretcher in the hyperbaric chamber and breathe oxygen at greater than normal atmospheric pressure. The investigator will monitor the increased oxygen levels in the tissue by placing a noninvasive electrode on your skin. After each hyperbaric treatment, we will measure your blood sugar by finger-stick to check for hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). If detected, hypoglycemia will be treated by standard medical measures.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. to generate preliminary data of the anti-tumor efficacy of hyperbaric oxygenation in conjunction with radiotherapy and chemotherapy,to determine median progression-free survival, to determine median survival and to determine median 2 year survival. [ Time Frame: one year ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. to determine the health related quality of life of this treatment regimen and its influence upon subjects'' perceived level of traumatic stress throughout the course of treatment. [ Time Frame: one year ]
