Condition glioblastoma multiforme
Treatments enzastaurin, radiation
Phase phase 2
Sponsor Eli Lilly and Company
Start date October 2007
End date February 2010
Trial size 60 participants
Trial identifier NCT00509821, 11491, H6Q-MC-S039


The purpose of the protocol is to induce a novel radiochemotherapy with enzastaurin as first-line treatment regimen in glioblastoma: Patients with active, unmethylated MGMT promoter will be treated with enzastaurin before, concomitant, and after radiotherapy to determine safety and PFS at 6 months (PFS-6) in phase II.

Patients must be at least 18 years of age. - Estimated life expectancy of at least 12 weeks - Tumor tissue specimens (paraffin-embedded and/or frozen) from the GBM surgery or biopsy must be available for central pathology review and exploratory analysis of PKC-beta targets (for example, GSK3beta). - Disease evaluated by Gd-MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) within 72 hours postoperatively - Interval of greater than or equal to 2 and less than or equal to 4 weeks since surgery or biopsy - ECOG Performance Status of less than or equal to 2 - Adequate organ function including the following: - adequate bone marrow reserve: white blood cell (WBC) count greater than or equal to 3.0 X 109/L, absolute neutrophil count (ANC) greater than or equal to 1.5 X 109/L, platelet count greater than or equal to 75.0 X 109/L, and hemoglobin greater than or equal to 10.0 g/dL (greater than or equal to 6.2 mmol/L). - Hepatic: bilirubin less than or equal to 1.5 times the upper limit of normal (X ULN), alkaline phosphatase (ALP), aspartate transaminase (AST), and alanine transaminase (ALT) less than or equal to 2.5 X ULN, or less than or equal to 5 X ULN with liver metastases - Renal: serum creatinine less than or equal to 1.5 X ULN - Blood clotting: prothrombin time (PT) and partial thromboplastin time (PTT) within normal limits - Patients must discontinue use of enzyme-inducing antiepileptic drugs (EIAEDs) greater than or equal to 14 days prior to study enrollment. The investigator may prescribe non-EIAEDs.
