A Phase I/IIa Study to Determine the Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) and to Evaluate the Safety and Efficacy Profile of Cerebraca Wafer Plus Adjuvant Temozolomide (TMZ) in Patients With Recurrent High Grade Glioma. High grade gliomas, glioblastoma multiforme (grade IV) and anaplastic anaplastic astrocytoma (Grade III), are the most comment malignant brain tumor. The cause of gliomas remains unknown. Despite of several researches on environmental hazards and genetic alterations, no direct causes were found. Patient suffering from glioma usually develops symptoms such as headaches, seizures, memory loss and changes in behavior in its early phase. At later stages, patients may encounter loss of movement and sensation, language dysfunction and cognitive impairments depending on location and size of the tumor. The average survival of glioblastoma patients is 15 months regardless of the use of multimodal therapy. (Z)-BP/polymer wafer, designated as Cerebraca wafer, is a biodegradable wafer for interstitial implantation comprises (Z)-n-butylidenephthalide ((Z)-BP; the active moiety) and Carboxyphenoxypropane-Sebacic Acid Copolymer (CPPSA; the excipient). Cerebraca wafer, the first human-use drug product, is a biodegradable implant comprises (Z)-n-butylidenephthalide ((Z)-BP) and CPPSA. According to pre-clinical study, (Z)-BP could reduce glioma migration and invasion, it also could reduce the tumor stem cell marker gens.
The study is aimed to evaluate efficacy and safety of re-irradiation for patients with recurrent high grade gliomas after other treatment.
This study is to evaluate the effectiveness of ultra-low dose Bevacizumab plus Temozolomide for recurrent high-grade gliomas.
This trial is aimed at evaluating the safety and effectiveness of PCV chemotherapy in patients with recurrent high-grade glioma with IDH1/2 mutation.
RATIONALE: Genetically-modified neural stem cells (NSCs) that convert 5-fluorocytosine (5-FC) into the chemotherapy agent 5-FU (fluorouracil) at sites of tumor in the brain may be an effective treatment for glioma. PURPOSE: This clinical trial studies genetically-modified NSCs and 5-FC in patients undergoing surgery for recurrent high-grade gliomas.
