This phase II trial studies how well dasatinib works in treating patients with glioblastoma multiforme or gliosarcoma that has come back. Dasatinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

patients must be on a stable or decreasing dose of corticosteroids for at least 5 days before the baseline MRI/CT is performed - Patients having undergone recent surgery for recurrent/progressive disease are eligible as long as they have recovered from the effects of surgery; patients who recently underwent resection without measurable disease post-operatively are also eligible - Measurable disease is not required for eligibility in patients who recently underwent resection as long as the following conditions are met as applicable: - Progression of disease led to the surgery - Gliadel wafers were not placed during the most recent surgery - Neither convection enhanced delivery nor catheters for infusion of chemotherapy were used during the most recent surgery - Radioactive seeds were not placed during the most recent surgery - The histology of the most recent surgery documented recurrent/persistent/progressive malignant glioma - Women of childbearing potential must have a negative beta human chorionic gonadotropin (B HCG) pregnancy test =< 3 days prior to registration - Patient must sign study-specific informed consent prior to study entry Exclusion Criteria: - Prior invasive malignancy (except non-melanomatous skin cancer) unless disease free for a minimum of 3 years;

Additional Information

Official title Phase II Trial of Dasatinib in Patients With Recurrent Glioblastoma Multiforme
Principal investigator Andrew Lassman
Description PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To determine the therapeutic efficacy of dasatinib in all patients (i.e., stages 1B and 2 combined) with recurrent/progressive glioblastoma (GBM) as measured by 6-month progression-free survival. SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: I. To determine the therapeutic efficacy of dasatinib for stage 1B patients with recurrent/progressive GBM as measured by a hybrid endpoint of 6-month progression-free survival OR objective response of (complete response [CR] or partial response [PR]) rate. II. To determine patient overall survival. III. To determine the toxicity of dasatinib in the treatment of patients with GBM. IV. To determine radiographic response rate to treatment. V. To determine patient progression-free survival. VI. To explore molecular correlates of clinical outcome. VII. To explore pharmacokinetic correlates of dosing, toxicity, and efficacy. OUTLINE: Patients receive dasatinib orally (PO) twice daily (BID) on days 1-28. Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression and unacceptable toxicity. After the completion of study treatment, patients are followed up periodically.
