chemotherapy, such as temozolomide, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor
cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Giving radiation
therapy together with temozolomide may kill more tumor cells. It is not yet known whether
giving temozolomide during and/or after radiation therapy is more effective than radiation
therapy alone in treating anaplastic glioma.
PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying giving temozolomide during and/or after
radiation therapy to see how well it works compared to radiation therapy alone in treating
patients with anaplastic glioma.
