Aims: To determine how consistently Chinese glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) patients were treated according to the Stupp regimen.
Patients and methods: The proportion of treatments conforming to the Stupp regimen and reasons for non-conformity were evaluated in 202 newly diagnosed GBM patients.
Results: Only 15.8% GBM patients received treatments compliant with the Stupp regimen. Main deviations were temozolomide dosages >75 mg/m2 (58/120, 48.3%) and treatment durations <42 days (84/120, 70.0%) in the concomitant and temozolomide dosages <150 mg/m2 (89/101, 88.1%) in the maintenance phase. Median OS (27.09 vs 18.21 months) and PFS (14.27 vs 12.10 months) times were longer in patients who received Stupp regimen compliant treatments.
Conclusion: Increased conformity to the Stupp regimen is needed for GBM patients in China.
