ABTC-1101, NCT01480050

Trial Description


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.

This phase I trial is studying the best dose of mibefradil dihydrochloride when given together with temozolomide in treating patients with glioma.


Eligibility criteria include the following:

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.
