Condition(s) targeted: Glioblastoma

Intervention: SU011248 & Irinotecan (Drug)

Phase: Phase 1

Status: Completed

Sponsored by: Duke University

Primary Objectives To determine maxi tolerated dose & dose limiting toxicity of SU011248 + Irinotecan in recurrent MG pts not on EIAEDs To characterize safety & tolerability of SU011248 + Irinotecan among pts w recurrent MG Secondary Objectives To evaluate pharmacokinetic profile of SU011248 & Irinotecan when co-administered in pts w MG To evaluate anti-tumor activity of SU011248 + Irinotecan

Clinical Details

Official title: A Phase I Study of SU011248 Plus Irinotecan in the Treatment of Patients With Malignant Glioma

Study design: Allocation: Non-Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome: Determine MTD & DLT of SU011248 + Irinotecan in pts w RMG not on EIAEDs

Secondary outcome:

Demographic & baseline characteristics

Efficacy observations & measurements

Safety observations & measurements

PK measurements

Detailed description: Primary interest for combining SU011248 w irinotecan in malignant glioma pts derives from dramatic anti-tumor activity recently demonstrated among RMG pts treated w humanized anti-VEGF monoclonal antibody, bevacizumab, when combined w irinotecan. 63 percent radiographic response rate was observed following treatment w regimen every other wk, & median progression-free survival was 23wks. Similar enhancement of chemo activity by VEGF-directed therapy w bev has been previously demonstrated for colorectal & lung cancer pts. SU011248 is being evaluated in current regimen because it may exert more potent anti-angiogenic effect than bev among MG pts due to its ability to inhibit PDGFR-mediated pericyte stabilization in tumor neovasculature. Current proposed ph I study is designed to determine MTD & DLT of SU011248 when combo w irinotecan for pts w RMG. Both SU01148 & irinotecan are known to be metabolized by CYP3A4 cytochrome system. Current study will limit enrollment to pts who are not on CYP3A4-enzyme inducing anti-epileptic drugs.
