                      A proof-of-concept clinical trial assessing the safety of the coordinated undermining of survival paths by 9 repurposed drugs (aprepitant, auranofin, captopril, celecoxib, disulfiram, itraconazole, minocycline, ritonavir and sertraline) combined with metronomic temozolomide (CUSP9v3 treatment protocol) for recurrent glioblastoma. This is a phase I study for subjects of 18 years and older with glioblastoma that has relapsed after radiation and chemotherapy, as confirmed by histology and MRI.

                      A total of 10 patients will be treated with the CUSP9v3 treatment protocol. This is a monocentric trial: all patients will be treated at Ulm University Hospital.
