Trial Information

A Randomized Phase I/II Study of ABT-888 in Combination With Temozolomide in Recurrent (Temozolomide Resistant) Glioblastoma


OBJECTIVES:

Primary

- To define the maximum-tolerated dose of the combination of temozolomide and veliparib
in patients with recurrent glioblastoma previously or not treated with temozolomide.
(Phase I*)

- To determine the efficacy of the combination of temozolomide and veliparib (using a
5-day vs 21-day schedule) as measured by the 6-month progression-free survival rate in
patients with recurrent glioblastoma previously treated with temozolomide. (Phase II*)

Secondary

- To characterize the safety profile of the combination of temozolomide and veliparib.
(Phase I*)

- To determine the adverse event profile and tolerability of the combination of
temozolomide and veliparib (using a 5-day vs 21-day schedule) in patients with
recurrent glioblastoma. (Phase II*)

- To determine the efficacy of the combination of temozolomide and veliparib (using a
5-day vs 21-day schedule) as measured by objective response in patients with measurable
disease. (Phase II*)

- To determine the overall survival of patients with measurable disease treated with the
combination of temozolomide and veliparib (using a 5-day vs 21-day schedule). (Phase
II*) NOTE: *Phase I was closed and phase II was opened on 3/6/12.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter, phase I* dose-escalation study followed by a phase II*
randomized study. Patients enrolled in the phase II portion are stratified according to
bevacizumab status (bevacizumab-naive vs bevacizumab-failure), age (< 50 years vs ≥ 50
years), Karnofsky performance status (70-80% vs 90-100%), and recent resection (yes vs
no/biopsy only).

- Phase I:* Patients receive oral temozolomide once daily and oral veliparib twice daily
on days 1-21. Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or
unacceptable toxicity.

- Phase II:* Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms.

- Arm I: Patients receive temozolomide and veliparib as in phase I.

- Arm II: Patients receive oral temozolomide once daily and oral veliparib twice
daily on days 1-5. Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease
progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 12 weeks for 1 year,
every 26 weeks for 2 years, and then annually thereafter.

NOTE: *Phase I was closed and phase II was opened on 3/6/12.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 240 patients (28 for phase I* and 212 for phase II*) will be
accrued for this study.

NOTE: *Phase I was closed and phase II was opened on 3/6/12.

Inclusion Criteria


DISEASE CHARACTERISTICS:

- Histologically confirmed diagnosis of 1 of the following:

- Any intracranial high-grade glioma (phase I*)

- Glioblastoma or gliosarcoma (phase II*)

- Patients whose original histology was low-grade glioma are eligible provided they
were subsequently diagnosed with glioblastoma or gliosarcoma

- Unequivocal radiographic evidence for tumor progression by MRI within 14 days prior
to registration and with a stable or decreasing dose of steroids at least 5 days
prior to scanning OR recent resection (registration within 30 days of resection) as
long as all of the following conditions are met:

- Patients must have recovered from the effects of surgery

- Residual disease following resection of recurrent glioblastoma is not mandated
for eligibility into the study; to best assess the extent of residual disease
post-operatively, a post-operative MRI scan should be performed within 28 days
prior to registration and within 96 hours post surgery (although 24 hours would
be optimum)

- Prior radiation is required for the phase I* arm

- Patients must have completed a course of radiation therapy and at least 2
consecutive adjuvant cycles of temozolomide (phase II*)

- A stable or decreasing dose of steroids at least 5 days prior to scanning is not
mandated for patients who had a recent resection

- No evidence of acute (i.e., new and active) intratumoral hemorrhage on MRI

- Patients with MRI demonstrating old hemorrhage or subacute blood after a
neurosurgical procedure (biopsy or resection) are eligible NOTE: *Phase I was
closed and phase II was opened on 3/6/12.

therapy for that disease for ≥ 3 years
