Purpose
Phase 1b:
To determine the safe and tolerable Phase 2 dose of LY2157299 in combination with radiochemotherapy with TMZ in patients with glioma.

Phase 2a:
To confirm the tolerability and evaluate the pharmacodynamic effect of LY2157299 in combination with chemo-radiation in patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma (as measured by changes in response biomarkers and their relationship to clinical benefit [e.g. 12-month OS rate])

Eligibility Criteria:

  • Phase 1b newly diagnosed WHO gr. 3 & 4 (2 cohorts to eval DLT before Phase 2a is open)
  • Phase 2a newly diagnosed Who gr. 4 only
  • Biopsy or Resection no more than 6 wks prior to txt and tissue available from surgery
  • MRI w/in 72hrs after surgery
  • No prior XRT, cytotoxic or non cytotoxic txt, Gliadel wafers
  • ECOG 0-1/KPS > 70%
  • No moderate or severe cardiac disease
  • Cardiac ejection fraction w/in institutional range of normal as measured by Echo w/ Doppler
  • No history of any other cancer within 3yrs (except non-melanoma skin cancer or carcinoma in situ of cervix)
  • No Stereotactic radiosurgery/Gamma-Knife/Brachytherapy
  • Labs within 14 days prior to registration: (Hgb level may be reached by transfusion)
    • WBC >  3.0
    • ANC >  1500
    • Plts >  100,000
    • Hbg > 10
    • Alk Phos, AST, ALT <  2.5 x ULN
    • Bili <  2.0 x ULN
    • Creatinine < 1.5

Treatment Plan:

  • Phase 1 is in Cohort 2 with dose of 150mg BID
  • Phase 2 is randomized and dose will be based on Phase 1 findings (approx. 14pts control arm)
  • LY2157299 concomitantly with TMZ and RTX followed by adjuvant LY2157299 and TMZ
  • Both medications are to be taken on an empty stomach (2hrs before or 2hrs after a meal)
  • LY2157299 is an oral medication and should be take prior to TMZ and XRT (LY2157299 15-30min before TMZ)
  • LY2157299 will be taken 14 days on/14 days off morning and evening, dose depends on Phase and Cohort
  • TMZ will be taken daily during radiation starting morning before first dose of XRT. 28days after XRT begin 5 day TMZ which will be taken during the off time of LY2157299
  • One cycle is defined as 28 days (6 wks of radiation = cycle 1 and half of cycle 2)
  • Patients Must have XRT at Duke and be able to travel or stay. Multiple PK’s and Blood draws are required along with ECG’s
  • Treatments Should Start on a Tuesday or Wednesday
