3. No prior treatment for glioblastoma apart from surgical resection.

4. Planned for 60 Gray of focal radiation administered in 30 fractions, concurrently with
temozolomide chemotherapy.

5. Manageable risks associated with potential radiation necrosis in the radiation field,
based on size of the field and proximity to eloquent brain regions (as assessed by the

6. Aged 18-70 years.

7. ECOG performance status 0-2.

8. Life expectancy of at least 3 months.

9. If receiving glucocorticoid therapy, the dose must be stable over at least 7 days
prior to study enrollment.

10. Archived tumor tissue available for central review.

11. Able to undergo gadolinium-enhanced MRI (Gd-MRI) scans.

12. Baseline MRI performed within 14 days before starting study treatment, while on a
stable glucocorticoid dose for at least 5 days before and during the imaging study.

13. Adequate hematologic, renal and hepatic function, as defined by:

Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) = 1.5 109/L Platelet count = 100 109/L Hemoglobin = 90
g/L International normalized ratio (INR) and activated partial thromboplastin time

14. Patients who are women of childbearing potential or men (unless vasectomised) must
agree to use a highly-effective method of birth control, such as hormonal
contraceptive implants, combined oral contraceptives, an intrauterine device, a
double-barrier method (eg. condom with a diaphragm) or abstinence, from study entry
until 4 months after completing study therapy. Should a woman become pregnant or
suspect she is pregnant while she or her partner is participating in this study, she
should inform her treating physician immediately.

15. Inability to comply with study procedures.

16. History or evidence of any other clinically-significant condition that, in the opinion
of the investigator, would pose a risk to subject safety or interfere with study
procedures, evaluation or completion.

Brief summary
This clinical trial is testing the safety, tolerability and effectiveness of NVX-108
administered via intravenous infusion in combination with standard radiation and

NVX-108 is being developed to increase the amount of oxygen delivered to tumors which is
hoped to increase the effectiveness of radiation therapy.
