Condition brain and central nervous system tumors
Treatments carboplatin, temozolomide
Phase phase 1/phase 2

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining more than one drug may kill more tumor cells.

PURPOSE: Phase I/II trial to study the effectiveness of combination chemotherapy in treating patients who have recurrent glioblastoma multiforme.

Additional Information

Official title Phase I/II Trial of Temozolomide and Carboplatin in Recurrent Glioblastoma Multiforme
Description OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of temozolomide and carboplatin in patients with recurrent glioblastoma multiforme. II. Determine the acute and long-term toxic effects of this regimen in these patients. III. Determine the pharmacokinetics of this regimen in these patients. IV. Determine the potential of either a pharmacokinetic- or pharmacodynamic-mediated drug interaction in patients treated with this regimen. V. Determine the objective response rate in patients treated with the established MTD of this regimen. VI. Determine time to tumor progression and survival in patients treated with this regimen. OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study. Patients are stratified according to prior nitrosourea-based chemotherapy (yes vs no). Patients receive carboplatin IV over 30 minutes on day 1 and oral temozolomide once daily on days 1-5. Treatment repeats every 28 days for a maximum of 6 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients with a persistent response may continue to receive temozolomide only for an additional 6 courses. Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of carboplatin and temozolomide until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose preceding that at which 2 of 3 or 2 of 6 patients experience dose-limiting toxicity. Once the MTD is determined, additional patients are accrued to receive carboplatin and temozolomide at the recommended phase II dose. PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 13-70 patients (3-30 for phase I and 10-40 for phase II) will be accrued for this study.
