Trial Description

Summary

This randomized phase II trial is studying temozolomide, radiation therapy, and cediranib maleate to see how well they work compared with temozolomide, radiation therapy, and a placebo in treating patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as temozolomide, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Radiation therapy uses high energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Cediranib maleate may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth and by blocking blood flow to the tumor. It is not yet known whether temozolomide and radiation therapy are more effective when given with or without cediranib maleate in treating glioblastoma.

Further Study Information

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To determine if the addition of cediranib to chemoradiation treatment enhances treatment efficacy as measured by the 6-month progression-free survival rate.

II. To assess the association between overall survival and change in each of the following markers: Ktrans, gradient echo CBV, and [18F]FLT Ki and K1, from T0 to T1.

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To determine if the addition of cediranib to chemoradiation treatment enhances treatment efficacy as measured by overall survival.

II. To determine if the addition of cediranib to chemoradiation treatment enhances treatment efficacy as measured by progression-free survival.

III. To determine if there is an association between tumor MGMT gene methylation status and treatment response and outcome.

IV. To compare and record the toxicities of the cediranib + chemoradiation arm versus the chemoradiation arm.

V. To evaluate whether 6-month progression-free survival is associated with overall survival.

VI. To assess the association between progression-free survival and change in each of the following markers: Ktrans, gradient echo CBV, and [18F]FLT Ki and K1 from T0 to T1.

VII. To assess the association between overall survival and change in each of the following markers: Ktrans, gradient echo CBV, and [18F]FLT Ki and K1 from T1 to T3.

VIII. To assess the association between progression-free survival and change in each of the following markers: Ktrans, gradient echo CBV, and [18F]FLT Ki and K1, from T1 to T3.

IX. To assess the association between overall and progression-free survival and the T0 values of each of the following markers: Ktrans, gradient echo CBV, and [18F]FLT Ki and K1.

X. To assess the relationship between [18F]FLT Ki and K1 and markers of tumor proliferation, both cross-sectionally and longitudinally.

XI. To evaluate the reproducibility of [18F]FLT Ki and K1 measurements. XII. To assess the association between overall and progression-free survival and the change in the "vascular normalization index" between T0 and T1.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study. Patients are stratified according to recursive partitioning analysis class (III vs IV vs V) and MGMT methylation status (methylated vs unmethylated vs invalid). Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms.

ARM I: Patients receive cediranib maleate orally (PO) once daily (QD) for 3 days. Patients then undergo radiotherapy (intensity-modulated radiotherapy or 3-dimensional conformal radiotherapy) QD, 5 days a week, for 6 weeks and receive temozolomide PO QD and cediranib maleate PO QD for 6 weeks. Patients then receive cediranib maleate PO alone QD for 28 days. Patients then receive temozolomide PO QD for 5 days and cediranib maleate PO QD for 28 days. Treatment with temozolomide and cediranib maleate repeats every 28 days for up to 12 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

ARM II: Patients receive placebo PO QD for 3 days. Patients then undergo radiotherapy (intensity-modulated radiotherapy or 3-dimensional conformal radiotherapy) QD, 5 days a week, for 6 weeks and receive temozolomide PO QD and placebo PO QD for 6 weeks. Patients then receive placebo PO alone QD for 28 days. Patients then receive temozolomide PO QD for 5 days and placebo PO QD for 28 days. Treatment with temozolomide and placebo repeats every 28 days for up to 12 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Some patients undergo advanced imaging studies including magnetic resonance spectroscopy, dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI, dynamic susceptibility-contrast MRI, and/or 3'-deoxy-3'-[18F]fluorothymidine positron emission tomography at baseline and periodically during study.

After completion of study therapy, patients are followed up every 3 months for 1 year, every 4 months for 1 year, and then every 6 months thereafter.
