NOA-10 / GLIAA-Studie

Amino-acid PET versus MRI guided re-irradiation in patients with recurrent glioblastoma – a randomised phase II trial

Prospective, randomised multicenter phase II study (Funding: German Cancer Aid).

GLIAA is a prospective and randomized study investigating the value of high precision FET-PET-guided re-irradiation versus high precision MRI-T1c-guided re-irradiation in patients with recurrent glioblastoma.

Primary endpoint:
Progression-free survival.

Secondary endpoints:
Overall survival, quality of life, side effects after radiotherapy, localization of recurrences, volumetric evaluation of PET versus MRI.
