A Phase II/III Randomized Trial of Veliparib or Placebo in Combination With Adjuvant Temozolomide in Newly Diagnosed Glioblastoma With MGMT Promoter Hypermethylation
This randomized phase II/III trial studies how well temozolomide and veliparib work and compare them to temozolomide alone in treating patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma multiforme. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as temozolomide, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Veliparib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. It is not yet known whether temozolomide is more effective with or without veliparib in treating glioblastoma multiforme.
•Histologic documentation: newly diagnosed World Health Organization (WHO) grade IV intracranial glioblastoma or gliosarcoma
•Patients who have had a local MGMT testing that is unmethylated are not allowed to participate
•Progression: patients deemed to have progressive disease based on clinical deterioration after chemoradiation or radiographic progression outside of the radiation field are not eligible; patients deemed to have pseudoprogression are eligible
