In brief: SAME TREATMENT
Gbm is treated surgically then followed by concurrent radiation + temodar (temozolomide) (oral chemotherapy) for 42 days.
This is then followed by single agent temodar (temozolomide) but at a higher dose 5 days every 28 day x 6 months. Talk to your oncologists.

In brief: Varies
Chemotherapy with the drug temozolomide is the current standard of treatment for gbm. However, there are many different regimens and treatments available.
