A Safety Lead-In/Randomized Phase 2 Study of BMX-001 as a Therapeutic Agent for Treatment of Cancer Patients With Multiple Brain Metastases Undergoing Whole-Brain Radiotherapy

Who is this study for? Adult patients with Brain Cancer
What treatments are being studied? Manganese Butoxyethyl Pyridyl Porphyrin
Status: Recruiting
Location: See all (4) locations...
Intervention Type: Radiation, Drug
Study Type: Interventional
Study Phase: Phase 1/Phase 2

This protocol is for a lead-in safety study of 5 patients followed by a randomized Phase 2 clinical trial of BMX-001, a new class of pharmaceutical, in 64 patients with multiple brain metastases (MBM) undergoing whole brain radiation therapy (WBRT). Preliminary studies have demonstrated that BMX-001 provides protection of normal tissues from radiation-induced injury and augments tumor growth inhibition.
