n those receiving placebo (7.3 months). When looking at the molecular markers, no subgroup of patients that benefitted from bevacizumab could be identified, said Gilbert.

Those on the therapy also experienced increase rates of symptom burden and neurocognitive decline, as well decreased quality of life, compared to those on placebo.

"Whereas previous studies in recurrent glioblastoma have demonstrated clinical benefit leading to FDA approval of the therapy, our study did not find a benefit using bevazicumab in the frontline," said Gilbert.
