Temozolomide protocol GBM
My mom was diagnosed GBM. sHe had tumor resection at 20october and diagnozed GBM.
After surgery she felt very well. Right now she is in hospital on radiation+temozolomide treatment. She is 16 radio sesion behanid.
My question is any one try some diffrent protocol for temozolomide ?
I read what more effective is 7/7 protocol.
I'm from eastern europe where typical is Stupp protocol.
Hi Potato, welcome. I'm sorry to hear about your mother's GBM.
The Stupp protocol is standard here in the USA as well.
I haven't heard about 7/7-- would that be Temodal (temozolomide) every day, every week? Even after radiation is completed?
I'm not a doctor, but one thing I wonder is this. Temodal reduces the white blood cell count. If Temodal were taken every day, I think the white blood cell count could be very seriously affected.
Do you have a link to an article about this?
There is some evidence that combining Temodal with another treatment can help. One of our members had Chloroquine at the same time as Temodal. Chloroquine is an anti-malaria drug.
