This is an open-label non-randomized, multicenter, phase II study of BGJ398 administered to adult patients with histologically confirmed GBM and/or other glioma subtypes with FGFR1-TACC1, FGFR3-TACC3 fusion and/or activating mutation in FGFR1, 2 or 3.

Official Title

A Phase 2, Multicenter, Open-label Study of BGJ398 in Patients With Recurrent Resectable or Unresectable Glioblastoma


Patients will be enrolled in two groups. Group 1 will enroll patients who are not candidates for surgery. Group 2 will enroll patients who are surgical candidates. Patients from both groups will be evaluated for tumor response and progression by MRI every 8 weeks until disease progression or discontinuation from study using RANO criteria.
