Brief Summary:
This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of ubidecarenone injectable nanosuspension (BPM31510) in treating patients with high-grade glioma (anaplastic astrocytoma or glioblastoma) that has come back and have been previously treated with bevacizumab. BPM31510 may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Gliosarcoma Recurrent Glioblastoma Astrocytoma of Brain Glioblastoma Other: Laboratory Biomarker Analysis Other: Pharmacological Study Drug: Ubidecarenone Injectable Nanosuspension Phase 1

Detailed Description:

Primary Objective:

  • Assess the safety and tolerability of BPM31510 plus vitamin K in subjects with high-grade glioma(HGG), defined as anaplastic astrocytoma (AA) or glioblastoma (GB) that has recurred on a BEV containing regimen.

Secondary Objectives:

  • To evaluate plasma pharmacokinetics (PK) when BPM31510 plus vitamin K is given to subjects with HGG recurrent on a BEV containing regimen.

Exploratory Objectives:

  • Estimate the overall survival in subjects with HGG recurrent on a BEV containing regimen from the 1st day of infusion of BPM31510 plus vitamin K to death.
  • To evaluate the effects of BPM31510 plus vitamin K on shifting HGG metabolism to aerobic respiration by PET imaging.
  • To evaluate the effects of BPM1510 plus vitamin K on MRI imaging by Response Assessment in Neuro Oncology (RANO) criteria [specifically progression free survival (PFS) and response rate (RR)].
  • To evaluate plasma pharmacodynamics (PD) when BPM31510 plus vitamin K is given to subjects with HGG recurrent on a BEV containing regimen.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Treatment (BPM31510)
Patients receive ubidecarenone injectable nanosuspension IV over 72 hours twice weekly. Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Other: Laboratory Biomarker Analysis
Correlative studies

Other: Pharmacological Study

Drug: Ubidecarenone Injectable Nanosuspension
Given IV
Other Names:
  • BP31510
  • Coenzyme Q10 Injectable Nanosuspension
  • Ubiquinone Injectable Nanosuspension

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percentage of patients with dose-limiting toxicities defined as thrombocytopenia >= grade 3, hemorrhage >= grade 3, and INR elevation >= grade 2 assessed by CTCAE v4.03 [ Time Frame: Up to 28 days ]
    Will be tabulated at each dose, along with the result of the pooled adjacent violators algorithm as implemented in the Modified Toxicity Probability Interval (equal weights, and the weighted mean solver).

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Incidence of adverse events graded according to the Common Toxicity Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) version (v)4.03 [ Time Frame: Up to 30 days after last dose of BPM3150 ]
    Will be tabulated separately for each dose cohort, by Medical Dictionary for Regulatory Activities (MedDRA) major organ system and severity.

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Brain tumor metabolism as measured by PET [ Time Frame: Up to 8 weeks ]
    Standardized uptake value (SUV) of the HGG will be measured. SUV is the standard PET measure.

  2. Overall survival (OS) [ Time Frame: From the date of BPM31510 initiation to death, assessed for up to 3 years ]
    Kaplan-Meier survival estimates for OS will be presented for data at the maximum tolerated dose, with a 95% confidence interval using Greenwood's formula at 3.5 months and 7 months.

  3. PFS assessed by RANO criteria [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ]
  4. Response rate assessed by RANO criteria [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ]
