Brief Summary:
An Open-Label, Multi-Center Study to Assess the Safety and Pharmacokinetics of BRCX014 Combined with Standard-of-Care Treatment in Subjects with Glioblastoma

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Glioblastoma Drug: Temozolomide Device: Optune Phase 1

Detailed Description:
Several studies have shown a possible anti-tumor role for cannabinoids by modulating cell signaling pathways, inhibiting angiogenesis, inducing apoptosis, and overcoming chemotherapy resistance. The investigators seek to demonstrate the safety profile of BRCX014, a cannabinoid formulation, when given to glioblastoma patients in conjunction with standard-of-care therapy.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: BRCX014
Subjects will receive escalating doses of BRCX014 in conjunction with standard-of-care (SOC) treatment. For patients with GBM, following standard chemo-radiation treatment (radiation: 2 Gy per day for a total of 60 Gy; and temozolomide: 75 mg per square meter of body-surface area per day, seven days per week from the first to the last day of radiotherapy), SOC treatment comprises six cycles of adjuvant temozolomide (150 to 200 mg per square meter for five days during each 28-day cycle), with or without use of alternating electric field therapy (Optune device).
Drug: Temozolomide
Standard-of-care chemotherapy for patients with glioblastoma includes concurrent radiation therapy (2 Gy per day for a total of 60 Gy) and temozolomide (75 mg per square meter of body- surface area per day, seven days per week from the first to the last day of radiotherapy), followed by six cycles of adjuvant temozolomide (150 to 200 mg per square meter for five days during each 28-day cycle).
Other Name: Temodar

Device: Optune
Standard-of-care treatment for glioblastoma includes alternating electric-field therapy, or Optune, as a Category 1 treatment in conjunction with temozolomide after maximal safe resection and completion of radiation therapy.
Other Name: TTFields




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of participants with treatment-related adverse events as assessed by CTCAE v4.0 [ Time Frame: Through study completion, an average of one year ]
    The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of BRCX014 using clinical assessments and lab results.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Maximum tolerated dose [ Time Frame: Through study completion, an average of one year ]
    A secondary objective of this study is to identify the maximum tolerated dose of BRCX014.

  2. Levels of metabolites [ Time Frame: Through study completion, an average of one year ]
    A secondary objective of this study is to perform pharmacokinetics analyses by measuring the plasma concentrations of BRCX014, temozolomide, and their major metabolites using lab results.

  3. Progression-free survival [ Time Frame: Through study completion, an average of one year ]
    A secondary objective of this study is to measure PFS using lab results and radiographic data.
