RTOG 0834 Phase III trial on Concurrent and Adjuvant Temozolomide chemotherapy in non- 1p/19q deleted anaplastic glioma. The CATNON Intergroup trial.
- The purpose of this study is to determine whether the addition of temozolomide treatment to radiotherapy (concomitant treatment) or the addition of temozolomide treatment after completion of radiotherapy (adjuvant treatment) will improve the results of the treatment. This study will find out what effects, good and/or bad, the addition of temozolomide has when it is given at the same time as radiotherapy, after radiotherapy, or both. (Temzolomide has been approved by the FDA for use in the treatment of newly diagnosed Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) but has not been approved for the treatment for your type of cancer. It will be referred to as the "study drug".)
