The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the safety, efficacy and clinical activity of Pamiparib in combination with radiation therapy (RT) and/or temozolomide (TMZ) in participants with newly diagnosed or recurrent/refractory glioblastoma.

Official Title

A Phase 1b/2 Study to Assess the Safety, Tolerability and Efficacy of BGB-290 in Combination With Radiation Therapy (RT) and/or Temozolomide (TMZ) in Subjects With First-line or Recurrent/Refractory Glioblastoma


An open-label, multiple-dose, dose-escalation study to determine the safety, pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics (PD) of Pamiparib in combination with radiation therapy (RT) and/or TMZ. In dose escalation/Phase 1b, Pamiparib will be combined with RT (Arm A) or RT and TMZ (Arm B) in participants with newly diagnosed unmethylated glioblastoma (GBM) and in Arm C of the study Pamiparib will be combined with TMZ in participants with methylated or unmethylated recurrent/refractory GBM. The dose expansion/Phase 2 phase will enroll up to 4 cohorts: participants with newly diagnosed unmethylated GBM in Arms A and B, and 2 cohorts of participants with recurrent/refractory GBM grouped by O-6-methylguanine-DNA methyltransferase (MGMT) status - unmethylated or methylated - in Arm C. Participants in Arms A and B are treated until completion of RT and participants in Arm C may continue treatment in the absence of safety concerns and disease progression.
