This biomarker-driven trial has been amended to enroll up to 83 patients (35 with a starting dose of 40 mg/m2; 48 with a starting dose of 30 mg/m2) to determine the potential of VAL-083 treatment to improve overall survival compared to historical reference control of 7.2 months with lomustine. As of May 5, 51 patients have been enrolled, 35 patients at a starting dose of 40 mg/m, and 16 patients at a starting dose of 30 mg/m.
6, did an exhaustive research on 289 patients diagnosed with anaplastic OD and their response to radiotherapy (RT) alone compared to RT with procarbazine, lomustine, and vincristine (PCV) chemotherapy with the conclusion that PCV with RT did not prolong survival.6 Jenkins et al.,then through sequencing and following up 119 patients, predicted a better overall survival of approximately one year for patients with low grade OD featuring 1p/19q co-deletion or translocation, especially those who received higher doses of RT.7 Van den Brent et al., also conducted a major study in 2006 with a total of 368 patients with anaplastic OD enrolled and followed up for a median of 60 months.8
