Glioblastoma (GBM) accounts for over 50% of gliomas and carries the worst prognosis of all solid tumors. Owing to the limited local control afforded by surgery alone, efficacious adjuvant treatments such as radiotherapy (RT) and chemotherapy are fundamental in achieving durable disease control. The best clinical outcomes are achieved with tri-modality treatment consisting of surgery, RT and systemic therapy. While RT-chemotherapy combination regimens are well established in oncology, this approach was largely unsuccessful in GBM until the introduction of temozolomide. The success of this combination has stimulated the search for other candidate drugs for concomitant use with RT in GBM. This review seeks to collate the current evidence for these agents and synthesize possible future directions for the field.
