Primary Objective to estimate 6-month progression free survival probability of pts w recurrent malignant glioma treated w Etoposide + bevacizumab. Secondary Objectives To evaluate safety & tolerability of Etoposide + bevacizumab among pts w recurrent malignant glioma. To evaluate radiographic response, progression free survival & overall survival of pts w recurrent malignant glioma treated w Etoposide + bevacizumab.

Study summary:

Exploratory, single-arm, ph II study designed to assess anti-tumor activity of combinatorial regimen consisting of Etoposide + bevacizumab among pts w RMG. Primary endpoint of study is probability of progression-free survival at 6 mths. Important secondary objective is to further assess safety of Etoposide & bevacizumab for pts w RMG. If study demonstrates that combinatorial regimen of Etoposide + bevacizumab is associated w encouraging anti-tumor activity among pts w RMG, further assessment of regimen in additional ph II & possibly ph III studies, will be considered.
