Summary

Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as temozolomide, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. It is not yet known whether giving radiation with concomitant and adjuvant temozolomide versus radiation with adjuvant PCV is more effective in treating anaplastic glioma or low grade glioma.

Description

This study will be a randomized phase III for patients with newly diagnosed co-deleted 1p/19q anaplastic glioma or high risk low grade glioma. The trial will only enroll patients with 1p/19q co-deletion. This study includes two arms as described in the "Arms" section. A dynamic allocation procedure will be used to allocate an equal number of patients to different arms (Arms A:B = 1:1). This procedure will balance the marginal distributions of the stratification factors among arms. The stratification factors that will be used are cooperative groups (EORTC vs. all North American groups), age ( 50 vs. > 50), performance score (ECOG 0-1 vs. 2), and tumor grade (anaplastic glioma vs. low grade glioma).

The primary goal is to determine whether patients who receive radiotherapy with concomitant temozolomide (TMZ) followed by adjuvant temozolomide (RT + TMZ --> TMZ) (Arm B) have a marginally better progression free survival (PFS) as compared with patients who receive radiotherapy followed by PCV chemotherapy (RT --> PCV)(Arm A).

Secondary Goals:

  1. Time to Progression - To determine whether patients who receive (RT + TMZ --> TMZ) have a significantly longer time to progression (clinical or radiographic progression) as compared with patients who receive radiotherapy followed by adjuvant PCV chemotherapy (RT --> PCV).
  2. Correlation between exploratory biomarkers and survival - To determine whether there is a difference in survival based on t(1;19)(q10, p10) translocation status and MGMT promoter hypermethylation status.
  3. Descriptive Comparisons of Additional Secondary Endpoints - To perform descriptive comparisons of additional secondary outcome endpoints, including overall survival, objective tumor response, prognostic factor analysis and quality of life.
  4. Toxicity - To determine the toxicity of the treatment in each arm and perform descriptive comparisons.
  5. Neurocognitive and Quality of Life (QOL) Effects - To determine the neurocognitive and QOL effects in patients treated on this protocol and correlate these results with outcome endpoints.
  6. Banking of Biospecimens and Neuroimaging Studies - To store blood products (i.e., plasma, DNA and buffy coat), tumor tissue and MRI/CT images for future scientific investigations.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed every 12 weeks for 1 year, then every 4 months for 2 years and then every 6 months until progressive disease or until the end of study participation.

Eligibility

Yes No Not Sure

Inclusion Criteria

Is your age greater than or equal to 18 yrs?
Gender: Male or Female
Do you have Brain and Central Nervous System Tumors?
Do you have any of these conditions: Do you have Brain and Central Nervous System Tumors??
Do you have any of these conditions: Do you have Brain and Central Nervous System Tumors??
United States (US) and Canadian sites
This review is mandatory prior to registration to confirm eligibility; patients must be willing to submit tissue samples for mandatory central pathology review submission; it should be initiated as soon after surgery as possible
Tissue must have been determined to have local 1p/9q co-deletion and IDH mutation prior to submission for central path review
Tumor tissue must show co-deletion of chromosomes 1p and 19q; for eligibility, the 1p/19q analysis results will be accepted from the local site, as determined by either a locally available or reference laboratory (for US, must be Clinical Laboratory Improvement Act [CLIA] certified); acceptable methods for determination of 1p/19q loss include fluorescent in-situ hybridization (FISH), by genomic sequencing or methylomic analyses; US and Canadian sites must send a copy of the official report to the pathology coordinator and quality assurance specialist (QAS)
Tumor must also show evidence of IDH mutation by immunohistochemistry or genomic analyses; this should be performed at the local site (US: performed in a CLIA certified laboratory); the site must send a copy of the official report to the pathology coordinator and QAS
Registration Inclusion Criteria
Newly diagnosed and =< 3 months from surgical diagnosis; patients are also eligible if they have had a prior surgical procedure > 3 months earlier for low grade glioma, as long as the patient has not received prior radiation or prior chemotherapy
Histological evidence of World Health Organization (WHO) grade III anaplastic glioma or WHO grade II low grade glioma with locally diagnosed combined 1p/19q loss and the presence of an either IDH1 or IDH2, both as established by a local or referenced laboratory qualified for the study
Note: mixed gliomas are eligible, regardless of the degree of astrocytic or oligodendrocytic predominance, as long as the tumor is also co-deleted for 1p and 19q
Patients with codeleted low grade gliomas must also be considered "high risk" by exhibiting one or more of the following characteristics
Age >= 40 and any surgical therapy
Age < 40 with prior and subtotal resection or biopsy (i.e., anything less than gross total resection)
Documented growth following prior surgery (NOTE: patients with prior surgery cannot have received prior radiation, chemotherapy or targeted therapy)
Intractable seizures
Surgery (partial or gross total resection or biopsy) must be performed >= 2 weeks prior to registration; patient must have recovered adequately from the effects of surgery
Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) >= 1,500/mm^3 obtained =< 21 days prior to registration
Platelet (PLTs) count >= 100,000/mm^3 obtained =< 21 days prior to registration
Hemoglobin (Hgb) > 9.0 g/dL obtained =< 21 days prior to registration
Total bilirubin =< 1.5 x institutional upper limit of normal (ULN) obtained =< 21 days prior to registration
Serum glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase (SGOT) (aspartate aminotransferase [AST]) =< 3 x ULN obtained =< 21 days prior to registration
