 Impressive 5 year survival of 10% with Gliadel Wafers.  This has been approved in the USA for a long time - this is the long term results. They do not mention controls, but historically, the accepted 5 year survival is about 4%.  Doesn't sound like much by itself but it may buy time for other treatments to work, and possibly be useful in combination therapies.
