Question

I take temodar and avastin for a GBM. I know I am getting ahead of myself, but what is next for me when these drugs stop working?

Carolyn Vachani, RN, MSN OncoLink Nurse Educator at Penn Medicine,, responds:

Answer

Those treatments are the standard therapies for GBM. If they stop working, your doctor will likely recommend looking at clinical trials options. You can find more information on available clinical trials on our clinical trials matching service:
