The purpose of this study is to estimate overall survival for adult patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma multiforme treated with talampanel during radiation therapy with concurrent and adjuvant temozolomide. This study will also determine the toxicity and toxicity rate of talampanel for this therapeutic regimen.
||Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
||A Phase II Trial of Talampanel in Conjunction With Radiation Therapy With Concurrent and Adjuvant Temozolomide in Patients With Newly Diagnosed Glioblastoma Multiforme
Primary Outcome Measures:

Experimental: enzyme-inducing antiseizure drug
A single-arm study with all subjects assigned to one treatment (radiation + temozolomide + talampanel) but subjects receiving concomitant anti-seizure drugs which could increase study drug elimination had a slightly modified dose/schedule of study drug. The primary endpoint is analyzed as a single group.
Radiation Therapy (RT) 5 days a week + temozolomide(TMZ) 75mg 3 times daily (TID) for 6 weeks. One month later, adjuvant TMZ 200mg TID for 5 consecutive days each month for a total of 6 months. Talampanel was administered orally TID beginning the first day of RT + TMZ and continued until there was talampanel-related toxicity or tumor progression.
