Nivolumab and Temozolomide Versus Temozolomide Alone in Newly Diagnosed Elderly Patients With GBM


Brief description of study

This study aims to investigate effect of Nivolumab and Temozolomide vs Temozolomide alone on overall survival in newly diagnosed elderly patients with glioblastoma.

Who is it for? You may be eligible to join this study if you are aged 65 years or above, with newly diagnosed histologically confirmed GBM (WHO grade IV glioma including gliosarcoma) following surgery.

The study aims to evaluate whether the combination of adjuvant nivolumab with temozolomide improves overall survival outcomes for this patient population. The outcome of the study will help determine the most effective treatment for patients with glioblastoma in the future.

Detailed Study Description

Study details:

Participants will be allocated to either experimental or control group in a 2:1 ratio by chance (randomly). Patients assigned to the experimental group will receive a course of nivolumab via intravenous infusion (240 mg on days 1 and 15 every 28 days for cycles 1-4; then 480 mg day 1 every 28 days for cycles 5-6) in addition to the standard regimen of Temozolomide (TMZ) tablets and radiotherapy. Patients assigned to the control group will receive the standard treatment of adjuvant temozolomide (150-200mg/m2 days 1-5 every 28 days) for 6 cycles and standard radiotherapy treatment (40 Gy administered in 15 fractions).
