Vorinostat in Combination With Chemotherapy in Relapsed/Refractory Solid Tumors and CNS Malignancies

NCT04308330

Description:

We are testing new experimental drug combinations such as the combination of vorinostat, vincristine, irinotecan, and temozolomide in the hopes of finding a drug that may be effective against tumors that have come back or that have not responded to standard therapy. The goals of this study are: - To find the highest safe dose of vorinostat that can be given together with vincristine, irinotecan, and temozolomide without causing severe side effects; - To learn what kind of side effects this four drug combination can cause; - To learn about the effects of vorinostat and the combination of vorinostat, vincristine, irinotecan, and temozolomide on specific molecules in tumor cells; - To determine whether the combination of vorinosat, vincristine, irinotecan, and temozolomide is a beneficial treatment for your tumor.

Detailed Description

      This first cycle will be used to determine whether the patient can tolerate the
      chemotherapeutic backbone without developing a DLT. The baseline disease evaluation will be
      obtained following hematologic recovery from the first cycle of chemotherapy, after which
      combination therapy with vorinostat will be given in subsequent cycles (2-12) w/
      modifications if needed. Vorinostat dose escalation in subsequent patient cohorts will occur
      based on DLT to determine a MTD.

Maximum Eligible Age:30 Years
Minimum Eligible Age:1 Year
Eligible Gender:All
Healthy Volunteers:No

Primary Outcome Measures

Measure:To determine a maximally tolerated (or optimal) dose of vorinostat
Time Frame:1 year
Safety Issue:
Description:A minimum of 3 evaluable patients will be entered at each dose level. If no significant dose limiting toxicity is discovered, a maximum of 3 dose levels will be evaluated. The minimum patient enrollment will be 3 patients. Many of the patients enrolled on this trial are expected to be heavily pretreated. All patients will be given a VIT only "window" to evaluate adequate bone marrow reserve to tolerate protocol therapy. We expect that at most 20% of patients will not be able to tolerate VIT or VIT with dose reduced temozolomide. A maximum of 24 patients enrolled on study is anticipated. Once the MTD has been defined, up to 6 additional patients may be enrolled to acquire additional safety data regarding this combination of agents.

Secondary Outcome Measures

Measure:Overall response rate (ORR) after therapy
Time Frame:1 year
Safety Issue:
Description:To determine the overall response rate (ORR) of vorinostat in combination with VIT in children, adolescents, and young adults with relapsed or refractory solid tumors. The overall (CR+PR) and best response rates with the 95% confidence intervals will be estimated based on the exact binomial distribution.
