FIGHT-209 Trial Summary

This trial is testing a drug called pemigatinib for people with recurrent glioblastoma or other primary brain tumors. Pemigatinib will be given daily on a 2-week on, 1-week off schedule. The trial will enroll about 82 people in each of 3 cohorts.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for people with specific brain tumors like recurrent glioblastoma or other nervous system tumors that have an FGFR1-3 gene mutation. Participants should be able to perform daily activities at a reasonable level (Karnofsky status ≥ 60), expect to live at least 12 more weeks, and not plan on having children during the trial. They can't join if they've taken certain cancer drugs recently, had prior treatment with FGFR inhibitors, are candidates for curative surgery, need high doses of steroids, or have another progressing cancer.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study tests Pemigatinib's effectiveness and safety in patients with brain tumors harboring FGFR mutations. It involves two cohorts receiving Pemigatinib under a schedule of two weeks on therapy followed by one week off as long as it benefits them without withdrawal criteria being met.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
While the side effects specific to Pemigatinib aren't listed here, similar medications often cause issues like fatigue, digestive problems, changes in blood tests reflecting liver function, dry skin or nail changes; some may also affect eyesight due to corneal or retinal disorders.
