Brief Summary:
The purpose of this trial is to assess the overall survival of patients treated with the Xoft Axxent eBx System and post-radiation adjuvant Bevacizumab for single-fraction IORT following maximal neurosurgical resection of recurrent glioblastoma. A historical comparison will be made to the results of the EBRT + Bevacizumab arm of RTOG 1205.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Glioblastoma Recurrent Glioblastoma GBM Recurrent GBM Radiation: Radiation: Intra-operative Radiation Therapy - IORT Drug: Bevacizumab Drug: Avastin Phase 2

Detailed Description:
The rationale for IORT, as the sole radiation therapy following surgical resection of recurrent GBM is to expand upon the favorable preliminary results in feasibility, safety and efficacy outcomes obtained at the European Medical Center Study Group (EMC Study Group). The rationale to add Bevacizumab as a systemic treatment is to target radio-resistant and highly tumorigenic cancer stem cells as well as to benefit from its radioprotective effects, i.e. reducing risk of radiation necrosis. Lastly, using Bevacizumab as a systemic therapy will enable the comparison of the results to the historic control arm, the EBRT arm of RTOG 1205.

  4. Subjects must have shown unequivocal radiographic evidence for tumor progression by contrast-enhanced MRI within 21 days prior to enrollment
  5. Subjects must have passed an interval of 6 months or greater between completion of prior radiotherapy and enrollment. If subjects have not passed an interval of at least 6 months, they may still be eligible if they meet one or more of the following criteria:

    1. New areas of tumor outside the original radiotherapy fields as determined by the investigator, or
    2. Histologic confirmation of tumor through biopsy or resection, or
    3. Nuclear medicine imaging, MR spectroscopy, or MR perfusion imaging consistent with true progressive disease, rather than radiation necrosis obtained within 28 days of registration AND an interval of at least 90 days between completion of radiotherapy and enrollment
  6. The recurrent GBM must be potentially-resectable with the intent to resect such that residual tumor rim is less than 1 cm enhancing disease
