Abstract: The phase II trial has been prepared to assess the effectiveness of BPA (250mg/kg)-based NCT combined with X-ray irradiation and temozolomide (75mg/m2) for the treatment of newly diagnosed GBM. BPA uptake is determined by 18F-BPA-PET and/or 11C-MET-PET, and a tumor with the lesion to normal ratio of 2 or more is indicated for BNCT. The maximum normal brain point dose prescribed was limited to 13.0Gy or less. Primary end point is overall survival.
