Abstract Text Vandetanib, a tyrosine kinase inhibitor of KDR (VEGFR2), EGFR, and RET, may enhance sensitivity to chemotherapy and radiation. We conducted a randomized, noncomparative, phase II study of radiation (RT) and temozolomide with or without vandetanib in patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma (GBM).We planned to randomize a total of 114 newly diagnosed GBM patients in a ratio of 2:1 to standard RT and temozolomide with (76 patients) or without (38 patients) vandetanib 100 mg daily. Patients with age ≥ 18 years, Karnofsky performance status (KPS) ≥ 60, and not on enzyme-inducing antiepileptics were eligible. Primary endpoint was median overall survival (OS) from the date of randomization. Secondary endpoints included median progression-free survival (PFS), 12-month PFS, and safety. Correlative studies included pharmacokinetics as well as tissue and serum biomarker analysis.The study was terminated early for futility based on the results of an interim analysis. We enrolled 106 patients (36 in the RT/temozolomide arm and 70 in the vandetanib/RT/temozolomide arm). Median OS was 15.9 months [95% confidence interval (CI), 11.0-22.5 months] in the RT/temozolomide arm and 16.6 months (95% CI, 14.9-20.1 months) in the vandetanib/RT/temozolomide (log-rank P = 0.75).The addition of vandetanib at a dose of 100 mg daily to standard chemoradiation in patients with newly diagnosed GBM or gliosarcoma was associated with potential pharmacodynamic biomarker changes and was reasonably well tolerated. However, the regimen did not significantly prolong OS compared with the parallel control arm, leading to early termination of the study.


  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows where any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a spaces, order doesn't matter (a b c and c b a are equivalent )
  • Filtering will only apply to rows that are already loaded on the page, filtering has no impact on query parameters
  • Use quotes to match a longer phrase which contains spaces "mtor c1483f"


  • Generally, the default sort order for tables is set to be first column ascending, however, specific tables may set a different default sort order.
  • Click on any column header arrows to sort by that column
  • Hold down the Shift key and click multiple columns to sort by more than one column, be sure to set ascending or descending order for a given column, before moving on to the next column.

IDH1 R132H glioblastoma sensitive Temozolomide + Vandetanib Phase II Actionable In a Phase II trial, Caprelsa (vandetanib), in combination with Temodar (temozolomide) and radiation therapy, demonstrated a significant increase in PFS and OS in glioblastoma patients harboring IDH1 R132H compared to glioblastoma patients without IDH1 R132H (PMID: 25910950). 25910950
PTEN negative glioblastoma no benefit Temozolomide + Vandetanib Phase II Actionable In a Phase II trial, Caprelsa (vandetinib), in combination with radiation therapy and Temodar (temozolomide), demonstrated no difference in PFS and OS when compared between glioblastoma patients negative for PTEN versus those positive for PTEN (PMID: 25910950). 25910950
