NCT01972750 : Dovitinib (TKI258) in the Treatment of Patients With Relapsed Glioblastoma
PhasePhase 1
AgesMin: 18 Years Max: N/A
Inclusion Criteria:

- Subjects, male or female, Age ? 18 years

- First or second recurrence of histologically confirmed glioblastoma

- A Performance Scale of Karnofsky > 60%, ECOG ? 2 or WHO < 2

- Patients must have been on no steroids or a stable dose of steroids for at least 5
days before the baseline MRI scan

- Prior treatment with radiotherapy and temozolomide and a maximum of two prior
chemotherapies is permitted

- Chemotherapy must have been completed at least 4 weeks prior to study inclusion if
prior temozolomide and 6 weeks if prior nitrosoureas or mitomycin c.

- No radiotherapy within the 4 weeks prior to the diagnosis of progres-sion.

- Treatment with investigational drugs must have been completed at least 30 days prior
to study inclusion if prior small molecules and at least 30 days if prior antibodies
(e.g. bevacizumab)

- Patient may have been operated for recurrence. If operated residual and measurable
disease after surgery is not required but surgery must have confirmed the recurrence
a post-surgery. MRI should be available within 48 hours following surgery

- Surgery completed at least 2 weeks before study inclusion and pa-tients should have
fully recovered

- Craniotomy or intracranial biopsy site must be adequately healed free of drainage or
cellulitis, and the underlying cranioplasty must appear intact at the time of study

- Adequate organ function as described below:

- Adequate bone marrow reserve: ANC ? 1.5 x 10^9/L, Platelets ? 100 x 10^9/L,
Haemoglobin > 9 g/dL

- Adequate liver function: Total bilirubin ? 1.5 x ULN (excepted for patients with
Gilbert's syndrome), ALT and AST ? 3.0 x ULN

- Adequate renal function: Creatinine ? 1.5 x ULN

- For non operated patients recurrent disease must be at least one bi-dimensionally
measurable contrast-enhancing lesion with clearly de-fined margins by MRI scan, with
minimal diameters of 10 mm, visible on 2 or more axial slices 5 mm apart, based on
MRI scan done within two weeks prior to study inclusion.

- Patients who require anti-convulsant therapy must be taking non-enzyme inducing
antiepileptic drugs (non-EIAED). Patients previously on EIAED must be switched to
non-EIAED and stable at least 2 weeks prior to study inclusion and be stable on a
constant dose.

- No non tumor related surgery or other invasive procedures (major sur-gical procedure,
open biopsy or significant traumatic injury) within 4 weeks prior to study inclusion,
or anticipation of the need for major surgery during the course of the study

- No core biopsy or other minor surgical procedure within 7 days prior to
randomization. Placement of a central vascular access device (CVAD) if performed at
least 5 days prior to study treatment administration is allowed.

- Before patient study inclusion and study related procedures (that would not have been
performed as part as standard care), written in-formed consent must be given
according to ICH/GCP, and nation-al/local regulations.

- Subjects with the ability to follow study instructions and likely to attend and
complete all required visits

Exclusion Criteria:

General Exclusion Criteria:

- Subjects not able to give consent

- Subject without legal capacity who is unable to understand the nature, scope,
significance and consequences of this clinical trial

similar chemical structure

- Simultaneously participation in another clinical trial or participation in any
clinical trial involving administration of an investigational medicinal product
within 30 days prior to clinical trial beginning

discretion may put the subject at risk, may confound the trial results, or may
interfere with the subject's participation in this clinical trial

including any of the following:

- History or presence of serious uncontrolled ventricular arrhythmi-as

- Bradycardia (<60/min): i) Clinically significant resting bradycardia (=> 40/min)
