Safety and Efficacy Study of Panzem NCD to Treat Glioblastoma
This single-center, open-label, phase 2 study will evaluate the anti-tumor activity, as well as the safety and pharmacokinetics, of Panzem (2-methoxyestradiol, 2ME2) Nanocrystal Colloidal Dispersion (NCD) administered in patients with recurrent glioblastoma multiforme (GBM)
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Control: Uncontrolled, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Benign and malignant central nervous system neoplasms derived from glial cells (i.e., astrocytes, oligodendrocytes, and ependymocytes). Astrocytes may give rise to astrocytomas (ASTROCYTOMA) or glioblastoma multiforme (see GLIOBLASTOMA). Oligodendrocytes give rise to oligodendrogliomas (OLIGODENDROGLIOMA) and ependymocytes may undergo transformation to become EPENDYMOMA; CHOROID PLEXUS NEOPLASMS; or colloid cysts of the third ventricle.

Vaginal Creams, Foams, And Jellies
Medicated dosage forms for topical application in the vagina. A cream is a semisolid emulsion containing suspended or dissolved medication; a foam is a dispersion of a gas in a medicated liquid resulting in a light, frothy mass; a jelly is a colloidal semisolid mass of a water soluble medicated material, usually translucent.
Optical Rotatory Dispersion
The method of measuring the dispersion of an optically active molecule to determine the relative magnitude of right- or left-handed components and sometimes structural features of the molecule.
Rare autosomal recessive disorder of metabolism due to mutations in the prolidase gene. It is characterized by recurrent lower extremity skin ulcers, recurrent infections, and FACIES, often with mental retardation.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome
A disorder with chronic or recurrent colonic symptoms without a clearcut etiology. This condition is characterized by chronic or recurrent ABDOMINAL PAIN, bloating, MUCUS in FECES, and an erratic disturbance of DEFECATION.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the anti-tumor activity and safety of Panzem NCD given in combination with daily oral fixed-dose temozolomide in patients with recurrent glioblasto...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy, limited pharmacokinetics (PK), and safety of 1,000 mg of Panzem® NCD administered orally four times a day to patients with recurrent...
The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and effectiveness of Azixa in patients with recurrent glioblastoma multiforme
The study is a randomized, controlled trial, designed to test the efficacy and safety of a new medical device, the NovoTTF-100A. The device is an experimental, portable, battery operated d...
RATIONALE: Cilengitide may stop the growth of glioblastoma multiforme by blocking blood flow to the tumor. Giving cilengitide before and after surgery may be an effective treatment for gli...
Therapy options at the time of recurrence of glioblastoma multiforme are often limited. We investigated whether treatment with a new intratumoral thermotherapy procedure using magnetic nanoparticles i...

In newly diagnosed glioblastoma multiforme, surgery, combined radio and chemotherapy, and adjuvant chemotherapy with temozolomide is the standard of care. Therapy for recurrent glioblastoma is less we...
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The efficacy of temozolomide (TMZ) in recurrent glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) has been evaluated by several clinical trials. A meta-analysis to assess the overall efficacy of T...
PURPOSE Despite initial treatment with surgical resection, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy, glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) virtually always recurs. Surgery is sometimes recommended to treat recurrence....
