Condition(s) targeted: Glioblastoma; Gliosarcoma

Intervention: Bevacizumab and Etoposide (Drug)

Phase: Phase 2

Status: Completed

Sponsored by: Duke University

Official(s) and/or principal investigator(s):
David A. Reardon, MD, Principal Investigator, Affiliation: Duke University Health System


Primary Objective to estimate 6-month progression free survival probability of patients with recurrent malignant glioma treated with Etoposide + Bevacizumab. Secondary Objectives To evaluate safety & tolerability of Etoposide + Bevacizumab among patients with recurrent malignant glioma (RMG). To evaluate radiographic response, progression free survival & overall survival of patients with recurrent malignant glioma treated with Etoposide + Bevacizumab.

Clinical Details

Official title: Phase II Trial of Bevacizumab Plus Etoposide for Patients With Recurrent Malignant Glioma

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

Primary outcome: 6 Month Progression-Free Survival (PFS)

Secondary outcome:

Objective Response Rate

Safety of Study Treatment Regimen

Median Progression-Free Survival

Median Overall Survival (OS)

Detailed description: Exploratory, single-arm, ph II study designed to assess anti-tumor activity of combinatorial regimen consisting of Etoposide + Bevacizumab among patients with RMG. Primary endpoint of study is probability of progression-free survival at 6 months. Important secondary objective is to further assess safety of Etoposide & Bevacizumab for patients with recurrent malignant glioma. If study demonstrates that combinatorial regimen of Etoposide + Bevacizumab is associated with encouraging anti-tumor activity among patients with RMG, further assessment of regimen in additional phase II & possibly phase III studies, will be considered.


Minimum age: 18 Years. Maximum age: N/A. Gender(s): Both.
