Surgical removal of the GBM tumor.
Surgical removal of the GBM tumor
Other: d4-NAM infusion
Following the surgical removal of the GBM tumor, GBM patients will be dosed with a form of nicotinamide (a natural vitamin) that we can track. The nicotinamide will be converted to methyl nicotinamide (MeNAM) in the tumor. We will measure how fast the nicotinamide is converted to methyl nicotinamide. We believe that the speed of this chemical reaction in the tumor (fast versus slow) may be correlated with GBM aggressiveness.
Other Name: Nicotinamide
