A Phase III Clinical Trial Evaluating DCVax«-L, Autologous Dendritic Cells Pulsed with Tumor Lysate Antigen for the Treatment of Glioblastoma Multiforme.

The purpose of this study is to see if an investigational agent known as DCVax-Brain can slow the growth and recurrence of your brain tumor and whether it can extend overall survival. Other goals are to test the safety and activity of DCVax-Brain and to determine whether it causes an immune response against your cancer cells as compared to standard treatment. DCVax-Brain is an investigational agent made from your own blood cells which have been exposed to your own tumor tissue. The study agent OR placebo will be given by injection.
