NOA-12: BIBF1120 and R-RT in Glioblastoma

This study has been terminated.
(Interim Analysis for Feasibility)

Last verified: May 2017
Patients with glioblastoma at first or second progression who have failed standard treatment that must have included radiochemotherapy with temozolomide and who are a candidate for a reirradiation can be included into the trial. In the phase I part the minimal tolerated dose (MTD)of BIBF 1120 in combination with radiotherapy will be investigated. Subjects in phase II will be randomised to receive reirradiation alone or reirradiation + 2 x MTD BIBF1120.

Condition Intervention Phase
Glioblastoma Multiforme Drug: BIBF 1120 Radiation: radiotherapy Phase 1 Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: No masking
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase I/II, Randomized, Open-label, Multi-centre Study of BIBF1120 + Reirradiation (R-RT) Versus Reirradiation in the Treatment of Patients With First or Second Progression of Glioblastoma

Further study details as provided by Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Wick, University Hospital Heidelberg:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Maximal tolerated dose of BIBF 1120 in combination with reirradiation (Phase I) [ Time Frame: day 0, 8, 15 and 17 post-dose during phase I ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of participants with adverse events as a measure of safety and tolerability of BIBF1120 [ Time Frame: Up to 90 days follow-up ]
  • Progression-free survival [ Time Frame: Time from randomization until death or disease progression ]
  • Objective response rates (OR) [ Time Frame: Time from randomization until response ]
  • Overall survival [ Time Frame: Time from randomization until death ]
  • Quality of life as determined by EORTC QLQ-C15 PAL and the EORTC brain module QLQ-BN 20 [ Time Frame: Screening and 6-weekly after radiotherapy ]
  • Cognitive function determined by MMSE [ Time Frame: Screening and 6-weekly after end of radiotherapy ]

Enrollment: 63
Study Start Date: August 2012
Estimated Study Completion Date: September 2017
Primary Completion Date: March 2017 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: BIBF 1120 + reirradiation
2 x minimal tolerated dose BIBF 1120 per day in combination with radiotherapy (2 Gy / fraction; 36 Gy in total)
Drug: BIBF 1120
BIBF 1120 is given as 2 x minimal tolerated dose per day as long as as a clinical benefit is considered by the treating physician.
Active Comparator: reirradiation alone

Radiation: radiotherapy
36 Gy, 2 Gy / fraction, 18 fractions

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Male and female patients with a recurrence / progression of glioblastoma either not being eligible for tumour resection or having macroscopic residual tumour after resection of the recurrence
  • Diagnosis of glioblastoma must be proven histologically and progress must be documented by MRI. MRI images must not be older than 2 weeks before first dosing/start of RT
  • Not more than two prior therapy regimens including one or two resections, one or two chemotherapies (one temozolomide containing concomitant to radiotherapy) and one radiotherapy (RT) for the brain tumour
  • Previous irradiation therapy of the primary tumour with a maximal dose of 60 Gy; at least 8 months since the end of preirradiation
  • Candidate for reirradiation with recurrent tumour visible on MRIT1 (Gd) and with the largest diameter measuring 1 cm to 5 cm
  • Informed consent
  • Age ≥ 18 years, smoking or non-smoking, of any ethnic origin
  • Karnofsky performance index (KPI) ≥ 60%

  • Adequate contraception
  • If on steroids, stable or decreasing treatment with steroids within 5 days before treatment start

Exclusion Criteria:

  • More than one RT of brain, prior first radiotherapy with more than 60 Gy
  • Cumulative total dose on the optical chiasm >54 Gy for 2 Gy/fraction, α/β=2
  • Prior treatment with bevacizumab, iodine seeds and/or brachytherapy
  • Unable to undergo MRI

  • HIV or hepatitis infection
  • Pregnancy or breast feeding
