Progression-free Survival (PFS), in the Treatment of Patients With Refractory Meningioma. [ Time Frame: 18 months ]
Progression-free survival (PFS) is defined as the time from randomization until objective tumor progression (PD) or death. Progression is defined per MacDonald criteria for response as ≥25% increase in size of enhancing tumor or any new tumor on MRI scan, neurologically worse, and steroids stable or increased.
To evaluate the efficacy of the combination of bevacizumab and everolimus, by measurement of progression-free survival (PFS), in the treatment of patients with refractory meningioma. [ Time Frame: 18 months ]

Trial of the Combination of Bevacizumab and Everolimus in Patients With Refractory, Progressive Intracranial Meningioma
A Phase II Trial of the Combination of Bevacizumab and Everolimus in Patients With Refractory, Progressive Intracranial Meningioma
In this multicenter, Phase II trial, the investigators plan to evaluate the activity of the combination of bevacizumab and everolimus in patients with recurrent, progressive meningioma following maximal treatment with surgical resection and local radiation therapy. Although these patients are relatively rare, there is currently no established standard of treatment for a disease that causes a great deal of morbidity, and that is eventually fatal.

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Patients must be 18 years of age.
  2. Histologic diagnosis of meningioma, WHO grade 1, 2, or 3 (benign, atypical, or malignant). In addition, patients with definitive radiologic evidence of meningioma who are unresectable, and in whom radiation therapy without biopsy is the standard treatment, are also eligible.
  3. All patients must have developed recurrent disease/progression after receiving all standard treatments, which must include the following:

    • surgical resection, if possible;
    • definitive radiation therapy for unresectable meningioma, or for recurrent meningioma after resection.
    • patients must be at least 4 weeks post-surgery, and must be at least 2 weeks post-radiation therapy, with resolution of related toxicities.
  4. All patients must have progressive symptoms judged to be directly related to their recurrent/progressive meningioma. Patients with no new symptoms, or patients with stable neurologic deficits from previous surgical resection, are not eligible.
  5. Patients may have had 0 or 1 previous systemic treatment regimens.
  6. ECOG performance status of 0-2.
  7. Adequate bone marrow, kidney, and liver function, as follows:

    • Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥1500/μL
    • Hemoglobin (Hgb) ≥9 g/dL
    • Platelets ≥100,000/L (≤7 days prior to treatment)
    • AST or ALT ≤2.5 x institutional upper limit of normal (ULN)
    • Total bilirubin ≤1.5 x institutional ULN
    • Serum creatinine ≤1.5 x institutional ULN
  8. Life expectancy of at least 12 weeks.
  9. Ability to swallow whole pills.
  10. Patients must have measurable disease on MRI scan.
  11. Women of childbearing potential must have a negative serum or urine pregnancy test performed within 7 days prior to start of treatment. Women of childbearing potential or men with partners of childbearing potential must use effective birth control measures during treatment. If a woman becomes pregnant or suspects she is pregnant while participating in this study, she must agree to inform her treating physician immediately.
  12. INR ≤1.5 x institutional upper limit of normal (ULN) . (Anticoagulation is allowed if target INR is ≤1.5 on a stable dose of warfarin or on a stable dose of LMW heparin for >2 weeks at the time of study entry).
  13. Fasting serum cholesterol ≤300 mg/dL OR ≤7.75 mmol/L AND fasting triglycerides ≤2.5 x institutional ULN. Note: In case one or both of these thresholds are exceeded, the patient can only be included in the study after initiation of appropriate lipid-lowering medication.
  14. Patients must be accessible for treatment and follow-up.
  15. Patients must be able to understand the investigational nature of this study and give written informed consent prior to study entry.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Previous treatment with bevacizumab or any other anti-angiogenesis agents.
  2. Previous treatment with m-TOR inhibitors (sirolimus, temsirolimus, everolimus).
  3. Patients who have had major surgery or significant traumatic injury within 4 weeks of the start of study drugs, patients who have not recovered from the side effects of any major surgery (defined as requiring general anesthesia), or patients that may require major surgery during the course of the study.
