Abstract

Twenty patients previously treated with surgical resection, radiation therapy, and a nitrosourea for malignant gliomas of the brain were given VM-26 as a second chemotherapeutic agent when evidence of tumor progression occurred. Thirty-five percent achieved an arrest or decrease of neurologic symptoms, with a median length of response (arrest and tumor regression) of 22 weeks.
