  Purpose

This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of WEE1 inhibitor MK-1775 when given together with radiation therapy and temozolomide in treating patients with newly diagnosed or glioblastoma multiforme that has come back. WEE1 inhibitor MK-1775 may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. 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. Giving WEE1 inhibitor MK-1775 together with radiation therapy and temozolomide may work better in treating glioblastoma multiforme.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • MTD of WEE1 inhibitor MK-1775 with 6 weeks of RT and temozolomide, graded according to the National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (NCI CTCAE) v4.0 (Arm I) [ Time Frame: Up to 6 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Severity and frequency of toxicity will be tabulated by the tested dose or doses using descriptive statistics. The proportion of subjects who experience grade 3 or above toxicities will be estimated, along with 95% confidence intervals by each type of toxicity.

  • MTD of WEE1 inhibitor MK-1775 with adjuvant temozolomide, graded according to the NCI CTCAE v4.0 (Arm II) [ Time Frame: Up to 28 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Severity and frequency of toxicity will be tabulated by the tested dose or doses using descriptive statistics. The proportion of subjects who experience grade 3 or above toxicities will be estimated, along with 95% confidence intervals by each type of toxicity.

  • Incidence of toxicities, graded according to the NCI CTCAE v4.0 [ Time Frame: Up to 30 days post-treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Severity and frequency of toxicity will be tabulated by the tested dose or doses using descriptive statistics. The proportion of subjects who experience grade 3 or above toxicities will be estimated, along with 95% confidence intervals by each type of toxicity.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall survival [ Time Frame: The time from the date of initial diagnosis to the date of death, assessed up to 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Calculated using the Kaplan-Meier method.

  • Progression-free survival [ Time Frame: The time from the date of initial diagnosis to the date progressive disease was defined and also patient was alive, assessed up to 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Calculated using the Kaplan-Meier method.


Other Outcome Measures:
  • PK profile of AZD1775 (MK-1775) in combination with radiation and temozolomide and adjuvant TMZ [ Time Frame: Baseline, at 0.5, 1, 2, 4, 6, 8 and 24 hours of weeks 1 and 4 of course 1 (Arm I) and at baseline, 0.5, 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, and 24 hours of course 1 (Arm II) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Individual subject plasma concentration-time curves will be analyzed by non-compartmental methods using routines supplied in the WinNonlin Professional Version 5.0 software package (Pharsight Corp., Cary, NC). The geometric mean ± standard deviation of the estimated values of the pharmacokinetic parameter for groups of subjects evaluated at MTD dose level will be calculated. Parametric statistical tests (i.e., single factor analysis of variance, Student's t-test) of pharmacokinetic variables will be performed after logarithmic transformation of the data.

  • Intratumoral AZD1775 (MK-1775) concentration [ Time Frame: Up to the day of surgery ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Will be summarized using descriptive statistics.

    Will be summarized using descriptive statistics.

  • P53 mutation status [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Will be summarized using descriptive statistics.

  • P-gp expression level [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Will be summarized using descriptive statistics.

  • Wee1 expression level [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Will be summarized using descriptive statistics.
