Layout table for eligibility information
Ages Eligible for Study:
18 Years and older (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:
Male and Female patients ≥ 18 years old with no maximum limited of age
Histologically proven meningioma grade II and III; grade I meningioma may also be included, if progression is documented (see criteria 3), particularly in case of skull base location
Progression is defined on 2 different MRI as an increase of meningioma's surface ≥ 5% by 3 months period (i.e. an increase of 5% over 3 months, 10% over 6 months, 15% over 9 months…) or as the apparition of a new unequivocal neurological symptom related to the meningioma. We considered as a new unequivocal neurological symptom a new occurring neurological symptom as, for instance, hemiparesia, oculomotor nerve palsy, visual loss, facial nerve palsy, facial neuralgia, directly related to meningioma and suggesting meningioma growth with increase of meningioma compression on neurological structures despite no increasing size on MRIs.
Patients must have failed surgery, and not amenable to a new curative intended surgery
Patients must have failed radiotherapy and/or radiosurgery
Prior chemotherapy is allowed, if progression under the cytotoxic agent is clearly documented. An interval of 4 weeks after the last administration of the cytotoxic agent is warranted. Number of prior chemotherapies is not limited.
Patients who have given their written consent
Patients affiliated to a social insurance regime
Adequate bone marrow function as shown by: Absolute Neutrophil Count ≥ 1.5 x 109/L,
Platelets ≥ 100 x 109/L, Hb >9 g/dL
Adequate liver function as shown by; serum bilirubin ≤ 1.5 x Upper Limit of Normal; International Normalized Ratio < 1.3; alanine aminotransferase and aspartate aminotransferase ≤ 2.5 x Upper Limit of Normal - Adequate renal function: serum creatinine ≤ 1.5 x Upper Limit of Normal - Fasting serum cholesterol ≤ 300 mg/dL OR ≤ 7.75 mmol/L and fasting triglycerides ≤ 2.5 x Upper Limit of Normal. NOTE: In case one or both of these thresholds are exceeded, the patient can only be included after dyslipidemia treatment initiation.

unstable angina pectoris, symptomatic congestive heart failure, myocardial infarction ≤ 6 months prior to inclusion, serious uncontrolled cardiac arrhythmia, active or uncontrolled severe infection, cirrhosis, chronic active hepatitis or chronic persistent hepatitis, severely impaired lung function (spirometry and Diffusing Capacity of the lung for carbon monoxide 50% or less of normal and O2 saturation 88% or less at rest on room air), active, bleeding diathesis
Patients receiving chronic treatment with immunosuppressive agent
Patients with a known history of HIV seropositivity
Patients who have a history of another primary malignancy ≤ 3 years, with the exceptions of non-melanoma skin cancer, and carcinoma in situ of uterine cervix.
