STUDY DESIGN: What does the study look like?

This study has two arms: Patients will be randomly assigned to receive the study medicine palbociclib in combination with IRN and TMZ, or IRN and TMZ alone. Patients are twice as likely to receive palbociclib than not. In addition, participants will know what treatment they have been assigned to receive.

The study medicines are taken in 21-day treatment cycles. The number of treatment cycles completed will vary for everyone. Participants may continue receiving treatment for as long as it is of benefit to them.
