A Panobinostat Presurgery

2014-07-23 21:09:21 | BioPortfolio


In the current study, the investigators will evaluate intratumoral pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic data associated with the administration of the HDACI, Panobinostat, among recurrent GBM patients. In addition, this study will evaluate the safety and tolerability of this agent, as well as evidence of anti-tumor activity in the patient population.


This study will enroll a maximum of 24 subjects with recurrent GBM who are scheduled for planned debulking craniotomy.

After screening and enrollment on the study, subjects will receive 20mg panobinostat 3 times a week for one week prior to surgery. Within 2-6 weeks of resection, subjects will resume panobinostat at 20mg panobinostat 3 times per week.

The primary endpoint will be 6-month progression-free survival. Each cycle of therapy will be 28 days. All subjects will be assessed after every other cycle of therapy. Subjects will remain on study therapy for at least one year unless they develop progressive disease, unacceptable toxicity, non-compliance with study procedures or withdraw consent. Patients may continue treatment with oral panobinostat until they experience unacceptable toxicity that precludes further treatment, disease progression, and/or at the discretion of the investigator.

Voxel-Wise Analysis of Fluoroethyltyrosine PET and MRI in the Assessment of Recurrent Glioblastoma During Antiangiogenic Therapy.

In MRI of patients with recurrent glioblastoma, bevacizumab-induced normalization of tumor vascularity can be difficult to differentiate from antitumor effects. The aim of this study was to assess the...

Histopathologic quantification of viable tumor versus treatment effect in surgically resected recurrent glioblastoma.

The prognostic impact of the histopathologic features of recurrent glioblastoma surgical specimens is unknown. We sought to determine whether key histopathologic characteristics in glioblastoma tumors...

Single-agent Bevacizumab in Recurrent Glioblastoma After Second-line Chemotherapy With Fotemustine: The Experience of the Italian Association of Neuro-Oncology.

Bevacizumab is an anti-vascular endothelial growth factor antibody used in the treatment of recurrent glioblastoma (GBM). Despite the large number of studies carried out in patients with recurrent GBM...

The TNF Receptor Family Member Fn14 is Highly Expressed in Recurrent Glioblastoma (GBM) and in GBM Patient-Derived Xenografts With Acquired Temozolomide Resistance.

Glioblastoma (GBM) is a difficult-to-treat brain cancer that nearly uniformly recurs, and recurrent tumors are largely therapy-resistant. Our prior work has demonstrated an important role for the TWEA...

A Study of the Focal Adhesion Kinase Inhibitor GSK2256098 in Patients with Recurrent Glioblastoma with Evaluation of Tumor Penetration of 11CGSK2256098.

GSK2256098 is a novel oral focal adhesion kinase inhibitor. Preclinical studies demonstrate growth inhibition in glioblastoma cell lines. However, rodent studies indicate limited blood-brain barrier p...

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.

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.

Traumatic injuries to the RECURRENT LARYNGEAL NERVE that may result in vocal cord dysfunction.

Branches of the vagus (tenth cranial) nerve. The recurrent laryngeal nerves originate more caudally than the superior laryngeal nerves and follow different paths on the right and left sides. They carry efferents to all muscles of the larynx except the cricothyroid and carry sensory and autonomic fibers to the laryngeal, pharyngeal, tracheal, and cardiac regions.
