NRG-BN011: A Phase III Trial of Lomustine-Temozolomide Combination Therapy Versus Standard Temozolomide in Patients with Methylated MGMT Promoter Glioblastoma


We are looking at adding lomustine to temozolomide and radiation therapy when compared to temozolomide and radiation therapy alone (usual care). We will compare the effect (shrinking or stabilizing) and side effects when treating newly diagnosed MGMT methylated glioblastoma. Each of the drugs and radiation work in a different way to stop the growth of tumor cells.

I'm interested
