Apparently. the standard schedule is better than the dose intensive schedule for GBM patients using Temodar. However, what I would love to see is a trial comparing different lengths of treatment. This trial used up to 12 months of treatment. Overall survivals were about 6 months after they stopped using the Temodar in either arm. Doesn't make sense to me to stop at 1 year.
