Lapatinib Ditosylate Before Surgery in Treating Patients With Recurrent High-Grade Glioma
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT02101905
UCLA IRB #: 14-000514
Sponsor: National Cancer Institute (NCI)
Time Frame: up to 2 years
Purpose: This pilot clinical trial studies how well lapatinib ditosylate before surgery works in treating patients with high-grade glioma that has come back after a period of time during which the tumor could not be detected. Lapatinib ditosylate may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.
