Temozolomide gel is a locally acting form of the chemotherapy drug temozolomide and has been successfully tested in clinical trials. It is administered directly at the site of the tumour following surgical removal, in the form of a hydrogel, thus ensuring that the therapeutic effect occurs precisely where it is needed. Temozolomide is a prodrug which destroys the tumour’s DNA and triggers the death of tumour cells. Temodex® is currently registered in the Eurasian Economic Union, used as a first line treatment of glioblastoma in Belarus since 2014 and is intended to be used in combination with the current Standard of Care (surgery + chemoradiation) for the treatment of glioblastoma.
Glioblastoma, the most common and aggressive malignant form of all primary brain tumours, affects glial cells and accounts for 52% of all brain tissue tumour cases and 20% of all tumours inside the skull. About 50% of the patients diagnosed with glioblastoma die within one year, and 90% within three years. Temozolomide gel has shown a prolonged overall survival of 9 months in patients with glioblastoma and other malignant astrocytic, oligodendroglial and oligoastrocytic brain tumours.
Temodex® (Temozolomide gel) obtained Orphan Drug Designation from the European Medicines Agency in 2016.
