|Exclusion Criteria:||1) Patients must not have any significant medical illnesses that in the investigator's opinion cannot be adequately controlled with appropriate therapy or would compromise the patient's ability to tolerate this therapy.|
2) For Mefloquine arm, patients with evidence of QTc interval >450 ms or clinically significant arrhythmia on baseline EKG obtained within 14 days of registration will be ineligible for protocol enrollment.
3) Patients with a history of any other cancer (except non-melanoma skin cancer or carcinoma in-situ of the cervix), unless in complete remission and off of all therapy for that disease for a minimum of 3 years, are ineligible.
4) Patients must not have active infection or serious intercurrent medical illness.
5) Patients must not be pregnant/breast feeding and must agree to practice adequate contraception(Acceptable forms of birth control include condom with spermicide and/or diaphragm with spermicide, and non-barrier contraception such as tubal ligation, vasectomy, oral contraceptives, implanted levonorgestrel, vaginal hormonal contraceptive ring). Patients must not be pregnant because animal studies show that both TMZ and MFLOQ are teratogenic, or there is insufficient information to estimate risk.
6) Patients must not have any disease that will obscure toxicity or dangerously alter drug metabolism. Patients with a history of psychosis/schizophrenia or cardiac disease requiring beta-blocker treatment (unable to change medication to non-beta blocker), anti-malarial durgs, or quinine or quinidine will not be eligible for enrollment to a mefloquine containing arm. Patients who are on active treatment with one of the study drugs at the time of evaluation will not be eligible for enrollment to an arm containing that study drug.
7) For Mefloquine arm, patients must not be on enzyme inducing anticonvulsants (EIAED); if the treating physician elects to change the medication to a non-enzyme inducing agent, a 2-weeks wash out period will be required after stopping EIAED prior to initiation of treatment.
