This is a multi-center, phase Ib/ II study (two parts) with patients that have recurrent glioblastoma multiforme. The first part (phase Ib) will investigate the maximum tolerated dose/Recommended phase ll dose (MTD/RP2D) of once daily buparlisib in combination with every-three-week carboplatin or buparlisib once daily in combination with every-six-week lomustine (CCNU) using a Bayesian model. Once MTD/ RP2D is established in either of the 2 arms, the corresponding phase II portion of the study will start. Phase II will assess the treatment effect of buparlisib in combination with carboplatin in terms of Progression Free Survival (PFS) and will compare the treatment effect of buparlisib with lomustine versus lomustine plus placebo in terms of PFS.
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

This protocol will test the activity of Enzastaurin vs. Lomustine in the treatment of recurrent brain cancer (specifically intracranial glioblastoma multiforme).
The purpose of this study is to see how effective cediranib is in treating a brain tumour called recurrent glioblastoma. Two drugs are being tested in this study. Lomustine is an approved...
This is an open-label, dose finding, multiple-dose study in subjects with recurring/relapsing glioblastoma multiforme. Three dose levels of MPC-6827 will be administered with carboplatin ...
This is an adaptive design, randomized controlled, open-label Phase 3 clinical trial in patients with glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) or gliosarcoma (GS), previously treated with surgery (if...
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if the combination of bevacizumab and lomustine can help to control glioblastoma. The safety of this combination will also be studied.
The effectiveness of stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) for recurrent glioblastoma (rGBM) remains uncertain. SRS has been associated with a high risk of radionecrosis in gliomas.
The combination of lomustine and bevacizumab is a commonly used salvage treatment for recurrent glioblastoma (GBM). We investigated the toxicity and efficacy of lomustine plus bevacizumab (lom-bev) in...
Bevacizumab is approved for the treatment of patients with progressive glioblastoma on the basis of uncontrolled data. Data from a phase 2 trial suggested that the addition of bevacizumab to lomustine...
Although O(6)-methylguanine DNA methyltransferase (MGMT) promoter methylation status is an important marker for glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), there is considerable variability in the clinical outcome...
Glioblastoma multiforme is the most common and lethal malignant brain tumor. Because of its complexity and heterogeneity, this tumor has become resistant to conventional therapies and the available tr...
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.
