Temodal gains additional use

The licensed indications for the antineoplastic agent Temodal (temozolomide) have been extended to include the treatment of patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma multiforme.

Temodal is administered orally together with focal radiotherapy, followed by up to six cycles as monotherapy.

A clinical trial involving 573 patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma multiforme randomised to receive temozolomide plus radiotherapy or radiotherapy alone showed a significant improvement in survival in the radiotherapy plus temozolomide group compared with the radiotherapy-only group.
