Phase 2 Study of Panzem Nanocrystal Colloidal Dispersion (NCD) in Combination With Fixed-Dose Temozolomide to Patients With Recurrent Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM)
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 glioblastoma multiforme.

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. (From Escourolle et al., Manual of Basic Neuropathology, 2nd ed, p21)
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.
A skin and mucous membrane disease characterized by an eruption of macules, papules, nodules, vesicles, and/or bullae with characteristic "bull's-eye" lesions usually occurring on the dorsal aspect of the hands and forearms.
A variant of bullous erythema multiforme. It ranges from mild skin and mucous membrane lesions to a severe, sometimes fatal systemic disorder. Ocular symptoms include ulcerative conjunctivitis, keratitis, iritis, uveitis, and sometimes blindness. The cause of the disease is unknown.
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...
RATIONALE: 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. PURPO...
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining more than one drug may kill more tumor cells. PURPOSE: Ph...
The mechanism of action of sorafenib makes it an interesting drug to investigate in the treatment of patients with glioblastoma multiforme. Efficacy of agents with anti-angiogenic activit...
The purpose of this study is to determine treatment related toxicity, tumor response, progression-free survival and quality of life of newly diagnosed Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) patient...
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...
Glioblastoma multiforme is the most aggressive primary brain tumour. At the cellular and molecular levels, several mechanisms responsible for apoptosis or autophagy induction are blocked. Identificati...
Temozolomide (TMZ) is the primary chemotherapeutic agent for treatment of glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) yet it has a fast rate of degradation under physiological conditions to the 'active' MTIC, which...
Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is a brain tumour characterised by a remarkably high chemoresistance and infiltrating capability. To date, chemotherapy with temozolomide has contributed only poorly to i...
