In a similar pediatric trial, Chamberlain treated 14 children at a dose of 50 mg/m2 per day [160]. The overall response rate was 50 per cent, with a median duration of response of 8 months. Tirelli and associates administered etoposide as a single-agent in a phase II trial (50–100 mg/m2 per day IV continuously for five days every three weeks) to 18 patients with malignant PBT [156].

Tamoxifen is a nonsteroidal antiestrogen that is used most often for the treatment of breast cancer patients. However, recent research suggests that tamoxifen also inhibits the activity of protein kinase C, a cytoplasmic enzyme involved in intracellular signaling pathways that can induce cell proliferation [183,184]. Glioma cells strongly express protein kinase C and known mitogens of glioma cells, such as fibroblast growth factor and epidermal growth factor are able to enhance protein kinase C activity.
