Phase I Study of Mibefradil Dihydrochloride in Patients With Recurrent High-Grade Glioma Receiving Temozolomide
|Phase I||Biomarker/Laboratory analysis, Diagnostic, Treatment||Active||18 and over||NCI||ABTC-1101|
Mibefradil dihydrochloride may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. 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.
Eligibility criteria include the following:
- At least 18 years old
- Recurrent or progressive disease after front-line radiation therapy and temozolomide
- Measurable disease
- At least 3 months since radiation therapy or temozolomide
- More than 30 days since any other glioma treatment
- For more information about the eligibility criteria for this trial, refer to the Health Professional version.
Final eligibility for a clinical trial is determined by the health professionals conducting the trial.
Patients will receive mibefradil dihydrochloride by mouth four times a day on days 1-7 (1-8 of the first course) and temozolomide by mouth on days 8-12 (9-13 of the first course). Courses may repeat every 4 weeks for as long as benefit is shown.
After finishing treatment, patients will be evaluated every 2 months.
