Abstract

In this preliminary trial we studied 29 patients with primary malignant glial tumors to investigate the effectiveness of cisplatin combined with etoposide on these tumors. Hyperfractionated radiation therapy was given in the course of chemotherapy. The time to tumor progression in these glibastoma multiforme (GBM) patients encouraged us to continue this treatment in a phase III study.
