RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to damage tumor cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of radiation therapy followed by carmustine in treating patients who have supratentorial glioblastoma multiforme.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Brain and Central Nervous System Tumors||Drug: carmustine Radiation: radiation therapy Radiation: stereotactic radiosurgery||Phase 2|
- Determine the overall and progression-free survival in patients with supratentorial glioblastoma multiforme treated with accelerated radiotherapy and conformal stereotactic radiotherapy boost followed by carmustine.
- Determine the short and long-term toxicity of this regimen in these patients.
- Determine the feasibility of this regimen in these patients.
OUTLINE: Patients receive daily accelerated radiotherapy 5 days a week on weeks 1-2. On weeks 3-6, patients receive accelerated radiotherapy 4 days a week (3 days a week on week 6) and conformal stereotactic radiotherapy boost once weekly. Patients then receive carmustine IV over 1-2 hours on days 1-3 every 8 weeks for 6 courses beginning within 1 month after the completion of radiotherapy.
Patients are followed every 3 months for 2 years, every 6 months for 3 years, and then annually thereafter.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 76 patients will be accrued for this study within 15 months.
|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|

|Intervention Model:||Single Group Assignment|
|Masking:||None (Open Label)|
|Official Title:||A Phase II Trial of Accelerated Radiotherapy Using Weekly Stereotactic Conformal Boosts For Supratentorial Glioblastoma Multiforme|
|Study Start Date :||March 2001|
|Actual Primary Completion Date :||November 2004|
|Actual Study Completion Date :||February 2009|
Experimental: External beam radiotherapy with stereotactic boost
External beam radiotherapy (EBXRT): 50 Gy in 25 daily fractions of 2 Gy. Stereotactic radiotherapy (SRT) boost: 4 treatments of 5 or 7 Gy, once per week during weeks 3-6. Patients will not receive EBXRT on the SRT treatment days.
Radiation: radiation therapy
Radiation: stereotactic radiosurgery
- Overall Survival [ Time Frame: From registration to date of death or last follow-up. Analysis occurs after all patients have been potentially followed for 18 months. ]
- Progression-free Survival [ Time Frame: From registration to date of progression, death or last follow-up. Analysis occurs at the same time as the primary outcome analysis. ]
