Brief Summary:
This is an open-label, two arm study. The trial will enroll a total of up to 36 patients. Arm A will enroll up to a total of 6 evaluable patients and Arm B will enroll up to a total of 30 evaluable patients. Arm A will explore the intra-tumoral ONC201 concentrations and pharmacodynamic activity in adult EGFR-low glioblastoma patients. Arm B will determine the radiographic efficacy of ONC201 in adult recurrent EGFR-low glioblastoma patients. All patients will be treated with oral ONC201 (625 mg) twice weekly, 2 consecutive days on and 5 days off per week schedule.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Arm A: ONC201 with Surgical Resection in Glioblastoma
Patients must be eligible for salvage surgical resection as deemed by the site Investigator. ONC201 will be administered orally, twice a week (2 consecutive days on and 5 days off per week) schedule at a dose of 625mg.
Drug: ONC201
ONC201 is a orally active, small molecule DRD2 antagonist that kills cancer cells but not normal cells.

Experimental: Arm B: ONC201 in Glioblastoma
Unequivocal evidence of recurrence (progressive disease) on contrast-enhanced brain CT or MRI as defined by RANO criteria, or have documented recurrent glioma on diagnostic biopsy. ONC201 will be administered orally, twice a week (2 consecutive days on and 5 days off per week) schedule at a dose of 625mg.
Drug: ONC201
ONC201 is a orally active, small molecule DRD2 antagonist that kills cancer cells but not normal cells.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Intra-tumoral ONC201 concentrations [ Time Frame: 11 Days ]
    intra-tumoral ONC201 concentrations in adult EGFR-low glioblastoma patients.

  2. Objective Response Rate [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    Objective Response Rate of ONC201 in adult recurrent EGFR-low glioblastoma patients.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Patient must have histologically confirmed World Health Organization Grade IV glioblastoma.
  2. Patient must have all of the following in their most recently resected archival tumor tissue: (1) absence of EGFR gene amplification by FISH, (2) absence of EGFRvIII expression by RT-PCR, and (3) low EGFR expression by IHC.
  3. For Arm A: Patients must be eligible for salvage surgical resection as deemed by the site Investigator.

    For Arm B: Unequivocal evidence of recurrence (progressive disease) on contrast-enhanced brain CT or MRI as defined by RANO criteria, or have documented recurrent glioma on diagnostic biopsy.

  4. Patient must have measurable disease by RANO criteria.
  5. Patient must have had previous therapy with at least radiotherapy.
  6. Patient must have an interval of at least 90 days from the completion of radiotherapy prior to the first dose of ONC201. If patients are within 90 days of radiotherapy, they may still be eligible if they meet one or more of the following criteria.

    • Progressive tumor is outside the original high-dose radiotherapy target volume as determined by the treating investigator, or
    • Histologic confirmation of tumor through biopsy or resection, or Nuclear medicine imaging, MR spectroscopy, or MR perfusion imaging consistent with true progressive disease, rather than pseudoprogression or radiation necrosis, obtained within 28 days of registration.
  7. From the projected start of ONC201, the following time periods must have elapsed: 5 half-lives from any investigational agent, 4 weeks from cytotoxic therapy (except 23 days for temozolomide and 6 weeks from nitrosoureas), 6 weeks from antibodies, or 4 weeks (or 5 half-lives, whichever is shorter) from other anti-tumor therapies.
  8. All adverse events Grade > 1 related to prior therapies (chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and/or surgery) must be resolved to grade 1 or baseline, except for alopecia and sensory neuropathy Grade ≤ 2, or other Grade ≤ 2 not constituting a safety risk based on investigator's judgment, are acceptable.
  9. Patient must be ≥18 years of age.
  10. Patient must have a Karnofsky Performance Status (KPS) ≥ 60
  11. Patient must have adequate organ and marrow function as defined below, all screening labs should be performed within 14 days of treatment initiation:

    • leukocytes ≥ 3,000/mcL
    • absolute neutrophil count ≥ 1,500/mcL
    • platelets ≥ 75,000/mcL
    • hemoglobin > 8.0 mg/dL
    • total bilirubin ≤ 2.0 x upper limit of normal
    • AST (SGOT)/ALT (SGPT) ≤ 2.5 × upper limit of normal
    • creatinine ≤ ULN OR creatinine clearance ≥60 mL/min/1.73 m2 for patients with creatinine levels above normal.
  12. Patient must have a contrast-enhanced head CT or brain MRI and total spine MRI within 14 days prior to start of study drug.
  13. Corticosteroid dose must be stable or decreasing for at least 3 days prior to the baseline CT or MRI scan.
  14. The effects of ONC201 on the developing human fetus are unknown. For this reason, women of childbearing potential (WOCBP) and men must agree to use adequate contraception prior to study entry and for the duration of study participation and for 30 days after the last dose of therapy. Highly effective contraceptive measures include: stable use of oral contraceptives such as combined estrogen and progestogen and progestogen only hormonal contraception or other prescription pharmaceutical contraceptives for 2 or more menstrual cycles prior to screening; intrauterine device [IUD]; intrauterine hormone- releasing system (IUS); bilateral tubal ligation; vasectomy and sexual abstinence.
