Arms and Interventions

Experimental: Palbociclib (PD0332991)

Palbociclib will be administrated orally at a dose of 125 mg/day during 21 days followed by a break of 7 days. All patients included will be treated in the same arm. Treatment will be administrated until disease progression, unacceptable adverse side effects or study end.

Drug: Palbociclib
Palbociclib will be administered orally at a dose of 125 mg/day, until disease progression, unacceptable adverse side effects or study end.
Other Names:
  • PD0332991
  • Outcome Measures

    Primary Outcome Measures

    1. Progression-free survival (PFS) at six months (PFS6m) [6 months]

      Percentage of patients who have progressed / no progress after 6 months of treatment

    Secondary Outcome Measures

    1. Safety and tolerability of oral administration of PD0332991 (reported adverse events, physical examinations and laboratory tests. Toxicity will be classified and tabulated by NCI-CTCAE v 4.0.) [Three years]

      Type, incidence, severity, frequency, severity and relationship with IMP of reported adverse events, physical examinations and laboratory tests. Toxicity will be classified and tabulated by NCI-CTCAE v 4.0.

    2. Anti-tumor response according to RANO criteria [30 months]

      According to RANO criteria, assessed by the PI of each center. There will be a central review.

    3. Overall survival (OS) [30 months]

      Time from randomization to death by any cause.

    4. Response duration [30 months]

      Time from first objective response up to disease progression according RANO (in patients with objective responses).

    5. Changes in the use of glucocorticoids [30 months]

      Percentage of patients decreasing doses of corticosteroids during treatment.

    6. Changes in neurological status. [30 months]

      By means of minimental test, it will be determined the changes in neurological status of patients.

    7. Tumor biomarkers assessment [30 months]

      It will be evaluated whether some biomarkers are related with the Progression Free Survival/Overall survival and response rates. The following biomarkers will be assessed: Deletions in CDKN2A, CDKN2B, 1p, 19q; mutations in IDH, amplifications in CDK4, CDK6, cyclin D.

    Eligibility Criteria


    Ages Eligible for Study:
