GlioVax study design. After resection, patients are randomized 1:1 into the vaccination and standard arms of the study. Patients in the standard arm are treated with fractionated radiotherapy (RT) and concomitant temozolomide (TMZ) chemotherapy, followed by 6 cycles of adjuvant TMZ. Patients in the vaccination arm receive 4 priming vaccinations and 3 boosting vaccinations with tumor-lysate-loaded, mature DC as add-on therapy to the standard therapy, between radiochemotherapy and adjuvant TMZ and in the first 3 cycles of adjuvant TMZ, respectively. The overall intervention period in both arms is 38 weeks, follow-up is 2 years. After screening (visits − 3 to − 1), 18 study visits (visit 0 (baseline) to visit 17) and 8 3-monthly follow-up visits are planned, to assess safety, efficacy and quality of life. Visits indicated in blue are in the vaccination arm only. Other visits are for patients in both arms of the study
