Avastin: New Indication for Glioma

According to Genentech, the FDA granted accelerated approval of Avastin® (bevacizumab) for people with glioblastoma with progressive disease following prior therapy. Glioblastoma (also called GBM or glioma) is the type of tumor that struck Senator Edward M. Kennedy.

Two of the key studies that led to this decision were:
  • AVF3708g
  • NCI 06-C-0064E
