Summary

To test the efficacy, safety and neurocognitive outcomes of advanced NSCLC patients, following stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) for 1 inoperable brain metastasis or 2-10 brain metastases, treated with NovoTTF-100M and supportive treatment compared to supportive treatment alone.
Participants will be randomized to the Supportive Care Group and will receive radiosurgery followed by supportive care, or to the NovoTTF-110M group who will receive radiosurgery then begin using the study device with supportive care. The device is to be worn at least 18 hours every day. There is a provision for those randomized to the supportive care arm to crossover to the study device after tumor has recurred twice. All participants will be seen every 8 weeks in the clinic until they progress a second time. Once study treatment is terminated, they will return to the clinic 8 weeks following the last visit, then be contacted once per month by telephone.

Summary

Subjects are being asked to volunteer for a research study because they have their first anaplastic astrocytoma (AA) tumor progression (worsening) or recurrence.

The purpose of this study is to measure how well and how safe eflornithine is in combination with lomustine, compared to lomustine taken alone, in treating patients whose anaplastic astrocytoma has come back after radiation and chemotherapy. Eflornithine is an experimental drug that the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not approved it for use by the general public. Lomustine has been approved by the FDA in the United States for this patient population.
