Study Summary

This trial is studying adavosertib given with radiation therapy and temozolomide to see how well it works compared to radiation therapy and temozolomide alone in treating patients with newly diagnosed or recurrent glioblastoma.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for adults with new or recurrent glioblastoma who can provide tissue samples, have a decent performance status (able to care for themselves), normal organ and marrow function, no severe allergies to similar drugs, and not on certain medications. Women must test negative for pregnancy and agree to birth control.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The trial tests the combination of adavosertib with radiation therapy and temozolomide chemotherapy in patients with glioblastoma. It aims to find the best dose of adavosertib that's effective when used alongside standard treatments without causing severe side effects.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Potential side effects include issues related to cell growth inhibition which may affect various organs, typical chemotherapy-related symptoms like nausea, fatigue, hair loss, blood disorders as well as risks associated with radiation such as skin irritation at the treatment site.

Trial Design

2Treatment groups
Experimental Treatment
Group I: Arm II (adavosertib, temozolomide)Experimental Treatment2 Interventions
Patients receive adavosertib PO QD on days 1, 3, and 5 or 1-5 weekly, and temozolomide PO QD on days 1-5. Treatment repeats every 28 days for up to 6 cycles in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Group II: Arm I (adavosertib, temozolomide, radiation)Experimental Treatment3 Interventions
INITIATION CYCLE: Patients receive adavosertib PO on days 1, 3, and 5 or 1-5 weekly and temozolomide PO QD for 6 weeks. Patients also undergo concurrent radiation therapy 5 days per week for 6 weeks. MAINTENANCE CYCLES: Beginning in week 10, patients receive temozolomide PO QD on days 1-5. Treatment repeats every 28 days for up to 6 cycles in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
