This study is for newly diagnosed patients. The purpose of this cohort is to obtain more safety data for MK-1775 given concurrently with RT+TMZ and with adjuvant TMZ. 12 patients will be enrolled and treated at the MTD established in Arm 1 during the initial 10-week cycle of MK-1775+RT+TMZ+4 weeks rest, and then at the MTD established in Arm 2 during 28-day maintenance cycles of MK-1775+adjuvant TMZ.
