The impact on survival of postradiation nitrosourea-containing chemotherapy (CHT) in patients with glioblastoma multiforme (GM) was analyzed retrospectively in 133 patients who completed the planned radiotherapy out of 173 observed cases. Thirty-five patients were 60 Gy, and CHT had an independent prognostic value. Our results suggest that chemotherapy improves 2-year survival rates from 12% to 28% in GM. The sequence of treatment, new drugs, and combinations should be further explored.
