This pilot phase I trial consisted of nine patients with recurrent glioblastoma multiforme who were administered THC intra-tumourally. The patients had previously failed standard therapy (surgery and radiotherapy) and had clear evidence of tumour progression. The primary end point of the study was to determine the safety of intracranial THC administration. They also evaluated THC action on the length of survival and various tumour-cell parameters. Median survival of the cohort from the beginning of cannabinoid administration was 24 weeks (95% confidence interval: 15-33)."
