This is a phase 0/1 dose-escalation trial to determine the maximum tolerated dose of Mycophenolate Mofetil (MMF) when administered with radiation, in patients with recurrent glioblastoma or recurrent gliosarcoma.


The goal of the Phase 0 component is to determine if MMF achieves active concentrations in brain tumors. Eight participants in Phase 0 will receive MMF for one week before undergoing an already planned biopsy or re-resection (surgical removal) of glioblastoma (GBM). A small portion of the tumor, removed as part of clinical care, will be used for testing in this study. Thirty additional participants will be enrolled in the Phase 1 component of the trial. The goal of the Phase 1 component is to find the dose of MMF that works best without causing severe side effects (the maximum tolerated dose) when combined with radiation. Participants in Phase 0 who meet the eligibility criteria for the Phase 1 component may participate in both phases.
