  Purpose
The purpose of this study is to evaluate patients with glioblastoma that is MGMT-unmethylated (the MGMT gene is not altered by a chemical change). Patients will receive Nivolumab every two weeks in addition to radiation therapy, and then every four weeks. They will be compared to patients receiving standard therapy with temozolomide in addition to radiation therapy.

Condition Intervention Phase
Brain Cancer Drug: Nivolumab Drug: Temozolomide Radiation: Radiotherapy Phase 3

Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomized Phase 3 Open Label Study of Nivolumab vs Temozolomide Each in Combination With Radiation Therapy in Newly Diagnosed Adult Subjects With Unmethylated MGMT (Tumor O-6-methylguanine DNA Methyltransferase) Glioblastoma (CheckMate 498: CHECKpoint Pathway and Nivolumab Clinical Trial Evaluation 498)
