Carmustine in Treating Patients With Progressive or Recurrent Glioblastoma Multiforme
Recruitment status was: Active, not recruiting
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of carmustine in treating patients who have progressive or recurrent glioblastoma multiforme.
Brain and Central Nervous System Tumors
Drug: carmustine in ethanol
Procedure: conventional surgery
|Study Design:||Primary Purpose: Treatment|
|Official Title:||A Phase I/II Study of the Safety and Tolerability of DTI-015 in Patients With Recurrent Glioblastoma Multiforme|
|Study Start Date:||June 2000|
- Determine the maximum tolerated dose of intratumoral carmustine in ethanol (DTI-015) in patients with unresectable recurrent glioblastoma multiforme. (Phase I of this study closed to accrual as of 01/15/2002.)
- Determine the qualitative and quantitative toxicity of this regimen in these patients.
- Assess the activity of this regimen in these patients.
- Estimate peripheral blood carmustine levels in these patients treated with this regimen.
OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation, multicenter study.
Patients receive carmustine in ethanol (DTI-015) intratumorally over 5 minutes during stereotactic biopsy or open craniotomy.
Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of DTI-015 until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose preceding that at which 3 of 6 patients experience dose-limiting toxicity. (Phase I of this study closed to accrual as of 01/15/2002.)
Additional patients then receive treatment with DTI-015 at the recommended phase II dose.
Patients are followed at 4, 8, and 12 weeks and then every 1-3 months until disease progression.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 12 patients were accrued for phase I of this study and approximately 14-18 patients will be accrued for phase II of this study. (Phase I of this study closed to accrual as of 01/15/2002.)
