  Purpose
This randomized phase II/III trial studies how well temozolomide and veliparib work compared to temozolomide alone in treating patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma multiforme. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as temozolomide, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Veliparib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. It is not yet known whether temozolomide is more effective with or without veliparib in treating glioblastoma multiforme.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall survival (OS) [ Time Frame: From study registration to the date of death due to any cause, assessed up to 10 years ]
    The distribution of OS for each arm will be estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method and compared with a stratified logrank test. Stratified Cox proportional hazard models will be used to estimate the hazard ratio for the treatment effect.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in quality of life (QOL), measured by the fatigue/uniscale tool [ Time Frame: Baseline to up to 5 years ]
    The fatigue/uniscale tool will be used as a measure of QOL. Potential differences in fatigue levels of patients treated on the two different arms will be evaluated. Changes in this measure will be evaluated over the course of treatment for both arms and will be compared using a two-sample t-test at each timepoint. Will also compute a normalized area under the curve (AUC) for the values of each patient over time and compare the mean AUCs for patients on the two arms.

  • Interaction with Optune device [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
    Cox proportional hazards model will be used to evaluate whether there is a potential interaction between the treatment arm and the Optune device. If an interaction is detected, separate analyses of treatment effect (using Cox models) will be done for patients treated with the Optune device and patients who were not treated with the Optune device.

  • Objective tumor response, defined as complete response or partial response as specified in the Revised Assessment in Neuro-Oncology criteria [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
    An objective tumor response will be evaluated for each patient and the tumor response rate will be summarized for each arm and compared using the Chi-square test.

  • Overall adverse event rates for grade 3 or higher adverse events assessed using National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events version 4.0 [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
    The overall adverse event rates for grade 3 or higher adverse events will be summarized and be compared using Chi-Square or Fisher's Exact tests between treatment arms. The maximum grade for each type of treatment-related adverse event will be recorded for each patient, and frequency tables for each arm will be reviewed to determine patterns. Treatment-related adverse events will be tabulated for each arm.

  • Progression-free survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: From study registration to the date of first observation of disease progression or death due to any cause (whichever comes first), assessed up to 10 years ]
    The distribution of PFS for each arm will be estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method, and be compared using Cox proportional hazard models with all stratification factors adjusted.


Other Outcome Measures:
  • MGMT status [ Time Frame: Baseline ]
    The concordance between site-determined MGMT methylation status and central laboratory determination of MGMT status will be analyzed using the Chi-Square test of proportions and 95% confidence intervals for the proportion of tests in disagreement with the local site.

Detailed Description:

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I. Test whether the experimental combination of ABT-888 (veliparib) combined with TMZ (temozolomide), compared to the control of placebo combined with TMZ, significantly extends overall survival in newly diagnosed glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) patients with tumor MGMT promoter hypermethylation.

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. Test whether the experimental treatment significantly extends progression-free survival.

II. Test whether the experimental treatment improves objective tumor response. III. Test whether the experimental treatment is associated with significantly greater rates of grade 3 or higher adverse events.

TERTIARY OBJECTIVES:

I. Evaluate the utility of dynamic susceptibility contrast (DSC) and diffusion weighted imaging (DWI) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques in defining time to progression in the setting of a large multi-institutional clinical trial.

II. Test the concordance between site-determined MGMT methylation status and central laboratory determination of MGMT status in cases with local testing.

III. Evaluate whether genetic or epigenetic alterations in deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) repair or replication genes are associated with overall survival, progression-free survival, and objective tumor response.

IV. Test whether polymorphisms in MGMT, PARP1, or other DNA repair proteins, are associated with overall survival, progression-free survival, objective tumor response, or rates of grade 3 or higher adverse events.

OUTLINE: Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms.

ARM I: Patients receive temozolomide orally (PO) once daily (QD) on days 1-5 and veliparib PO twice daily (BID) on days 1-7. Treatment repeats every 28 days for 6 courses in the absence of disease progression (confirmed progression) or unacceptable toxicity.

ARM II: Patients receive temozolomide as in Arm I and placebo PO BID on days 1-7. Treatment repeats every 28 days for 6 courses in the absence of disease progression (confirmed progression) or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 3 months for 3 years, every 6 months for 2 years.
