Reporting Groups
  Description
Radiation and Motexafin Gadolinium

Patients receive motexafin gadolinium IV over 5-10 minutes once daily (prior to radiotherapy) 5 days a week for 6 weeks. Patients undergo localized cranial radiotherapy once daily 5 days a week for 6 weeks. Treatment continues in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

motexafin gadolinium: Given IV

2-dimensional, 3-dimensional conformal, or intensity-modulated radiation therapy: Undergo localized cranial radiotherapy
