Research Study Description
This is a Phase 2 study of newly diagnosed patients with high grade glioma (HGG) undergoing standard radiation therapy and temozolomide treatment. BMX-001 added to radiation therapy and temozolomide has the potential not only to benefit the survival of high grade glioma patients but also to protect against deterioration of cognition and impairment of quality of life. BMX-001 will be given subcutaneously first with a loading dose zero to four days prior to the start of chemoradiation and followed by twice a week doses at one-half of the loading dose for the duration of radiation therapy plus two weeks. Both safety and efficacy of BMX-001 will be evaluated. Impact on cognition will also be assessed. Eighty patients will be randomized to the treatment arm that will receive BMX-001 while undergoing chemoradiation and 80 patients randomized to receive chemoradiation alone. The sponsor hypothesizes that BMX-001 when added to standard radiation therapy and temozolomide will be safe at pharmacologically relevant doses in patients with newly diagnosed high grade glioma. The sponsor also hypothesizes that the addition of BMX-001 will positively impact the overall survival and improve objective measures of cognition in newly diagnosed high grade glioma patients.
