  Purpose

This is an open-label, single arm, Phase 1 study to assess the safety and tolerability of macitentan in combination with dose-dense temozolomide in adult patients with recurrent glioblastoma or gliosarcoma. The study is composed of three parts. A Phase 1 Dose Escalation Period with a traditional 3+3 design will determine the maximum tolerated dose of macitentan in combination with dose-dense temozolomide. A Phase 1b Period will expand the safety and tolerability data of two doses of macitentan and dose-dense temozolomide selected from the Dose Escalation Period and explore efficacy. An Ancillary Study will further evaluate the effects of macitentan on biomarkers in brain tumor tissue.

The study is planned to have a minimum duration of 12 months. The study will end when all patients (excluding those prematurely withdrawn or lost to follow-up) in each part of the study have completed a visit at month 12 and 30 days of safety follow-up.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine the maximum tolerated dose of macitentan in combination with dose-dense temozolomide [ Time Frame: Phase I Dose Escalation period (Dose-Limiting Toxicity from Baseline to 28 days for each dose level) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of patients with treatment-emergent adverse events (AEs) and serious AEs [ Time Frame: Participants will be followed up for the duration of combination treatment, an expected average of 9-12 months. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    for all study periods

  • Number of patients with AEs leading to premature discontinuation of study treatment [ Time Frame: Participants will be followed up for the duration of combination treatment, an expected average of 9-12 months. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    for all study periods

  • Incidence of treatment-emergent* marked laboratory abnormalities [ Time Frame: Participants will be followed up for the duration of combination treatment, an expected average of 9-12 months. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    for all study periods

  • Number of patients with treatment-emergent ECG abnormalities [ Time Frame: Up to 30 days after discontinuation of macitentan ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    for all study periods

  • Change from baseline in vital signs [ Time Frame: Up to 30 days after discontinuation of macitentan ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    for all study periods: systolic and diastolic blood pressure [supine and standing], average of the two measurements and pulse rate.

  • Occurrence of at least grade 2 ALT and/or AST elevation [ Time Frame: Participants will be followed up for the duration of combination treatment, an expected average of 9-12 months. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    for all study periods

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria

  • Histologically confirmed glioblastoma multiforme or gliosarcoma

    • interval of at least 3 months following initial radiotherapy and temozolomide
    • interval of at least 3 weeks between end of surgery for recurrent disease and start of protocol therapy for patients who have undergone surgery for recurrent disease
  • KPS 60% or higher
  • Adequate bone marrow function Women of childbearing potential must have a negative serum beta-HCG pregnancy test documented within 14 days prior to study initiation.
  • Women of childbearing potential must agree to use two reliable methods of contraception from screening and up to 30 days after discontinuation of study treatment.
  • Males not naturally or surgically sterile, who have a female partner of childbearing potential, must agree to use two reliable methods of contraception from screening and up to 30 days after discontinuation of study treatment.

Exclusion Criteria
