Summary
Brief summary
Standard of care post surgery for GBM is concurrent radiotherapy/chemotherapy followed by 6 months of chemotherapy (temozolomide). We have previously shown that the combination of Temozolomide with liposomal doxorubicin (caelyx) has activity in recrurrent GBM and is well tolerated. This study aims to assess whether the addition of liposomal doxorubicin to six months of post RT temozolomide is efficacious and well tolerated
