Patients and Methods
Patients (age >= 18 to >= 70 years) were treated with cilengitide (500 mg) administered twice weekly intravenously in addition to standard radiotherapy with concomitant and adjuvant temozolomide. Treatment was continued until disease progression or for up to 35 weeks. The primary end point was progression-free survival (PFS) at 6 months.
Fifty-two patients ( median age, 57 years; 62% male) were included. Six- and 12-month PFS rates were 69% (95% CI, 54% to 80%) and 33% ( 95% CI, 21% to 46%). Median PFS was 8 months ( 95% CI, 6.0 to 10.7 months). Twelve- and 24-month overall survival ( OS) rates were 68% ( 95% CI, 53% to 79%) and 35% ( 95% CI, 22% to 48%). Median OS was 16.1 months ( 95% CI, 13.1 to 23.2 months). PFS and OS were longer in patients with tumors with O-6-methylguanine-DNA methyltransferase (MGMT) promoter methylation (13.4 and 23.2 months) versus those without MGMT promoter methylation (3.4 and 13.1 months). The combination of cilengitide with temozolomide and radiotherapy was well tolerated, with no additional toxicity. No pharmacokinetic interactions between temozolomide and cilengitide were identified.
Compared with historical controls, the addition of concomitant and adjuvant cilengitide to standard chemoradiotherapy demonstrated promising activity in patients with glioblastoma with MGMT promoter methylation. J Clin Oncol 28:2712-2718. (C) 2010 by American Society of Clinical Oncology
