Conditions glioblastoma, gliosarcoma
Treatments avastin, tarceva, temodar
Phase phase 2
Targets EGFR, VEGF
Sponsor University of California, San Francisco

This is a phase II study of Bevacizumab plus Temodar and Tarceva in patients with non-progressive glioblastoma or gliosarcoma. Patients must have stable disease immediately following a standard course of up-front radiotherapy and Temodar. All patients will receive Bevacizumab, Temodar and Tarceva. A total of 60 patients will be enrolled. Our hypothesis is that the combination of Bevacizumab plus Temodar and Tarceva will increase survival over that seen in historical controls who have newly diagnosed, non-progressive glioblastoma or gliosarcoma following radiotherapy plus Temodar and use Temodar alone.

Primary purpose treatment

Primary Outcomes

To determine the overall and progression-free survival for non-progressive patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma or gliosarcoma treated with Bevacizumab plus Temodar and Tarceva following radiation therapy and Temodar.
time frame: Approximately 6 months to 1 year

Secondary Outcomes

To collect safety data on the combination of Bevacizumab plus Temodar and Tarceva for patients with non-progressive newly diagnosed glioblastoma or gliosarcoma treated with Bevacizumab and Tarceva after radiation therapy and Temodar.
time frame: Approximately 6 months to 1 year

Eligibility Criteria

Male or female participants at least 18 years old.

Inclusion Criteria: - Patients with histologically proven, non-progressive glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) or gliosarcoma (GS) with stable disease immediately following XRT + TMZ. All patients will receive Bevacizumab plus Tarceva and TMZ. - Biopsy or resection must have been performed prior to RT + TMZ. - No chemotherapy is allowed prior to starting RT + TMZ, including Gliadel Wafers. - Patients will have started RT + TMZ prior to registration and study entry and are eligible as long as they do not have progressive disease and can start Bevacizumab + TMZ and Tarceva within 4 weeks after the completion of RT + TMZ. Patients MUST have been treated with at least 54 Gy radiotherapy (60 Gy recommended) and MUST have received Temodar concurrently with radiotherapy for eligibility for this study. - Patients may or may not have measurable or evaluable disease on contrast MR imaging. A post-radiotherapy MRI scan must document stable disease. - Patients must be > 18 years old and with a life expectancy > 12 weeks. - Patients must have a Karnofsky performance status of > 70. - Patients must have adequate bone marrow function (WBC > 3,000/µl, ANC > 1,500/mm3, platelet count of > 100,000/mm3, and hemoglobin > 10 mg/dl), adequate liver function (SGOT and bilirubin < 1.5 times ULN), and adequate renal function (creatinine < 1.5 mg/dL) before starting therapy. These tests must be performed within 14 days prior to initial treatment. Exclusion Criteria: - Patients must not have evidence of recent hemorrhage on baseline MRI of the brain, with the following exceptions: presence of hemosiderin, resolving hemorrhage changes related to surgery, presence of punctuate hemorrhage in the tumor. - Patients must not have any significant medical illnesses that in the investigator's opinion cannot be adequately controlled with appropriate therapy, would compromise the patient's ability to tolerate this therapy or any disease that will obscure toxicity or dangerously alter drug metabolism. - Patients must not have proteinuria at screening as demonstrated by either - Urine protein: creatinine (UPC) ratio ³ 1.0 at screening OR - Urine dipstick for proteinuria ≥ 2+ (patients discovered to have ≥ 2+ proteinuria on dipstick urinalysis at baseline should undergo a 24 hour urine collection and must demonstrate ≤ 1g of protein in 24 hours to be eligible). - Patients must not have inadequately controlled hypertension (defined as systolic blood pressure >150 and/or diastolic blood pressure > 100 mmHg) on antihypertensive medications. - Patients must not have any prior history of hypertensive crisis or hypertensive encephalopathy. - Patients must not have New York Heart Association Grade II or greater congestive heart failure (see Appendix E). - Patients must not have history of myocardial infarction or unstable angina within 12 months prior to study enrollment.
