  Purpose

This phase II trial is studying how well giving bevacizumab together with irinotecan works in treating young patients with recurrent, progressive, or refractory glioma, medulloblastoma, ependymoma, or low grade glioma. Monoclonal antibodies, such as bevacizumab, can block tumor growth in different ways. Some block the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Others find tumor cells and help kill them or carry tumor-killing substances to them. Bevacizumab may also stop the growth of glioma by blocking blood flow to the tumor. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as irinotecan, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Giving bevacizumab together with irinotecan may kill more tumor cells.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Objective Response Rate Sustained for ≥ 8 Weeks [ Time Frame: From day 1 of treatment up to 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Objective response is either a complete response or a partial response observed during the first four courses of treatment and sustained for 8 weeks. The objective response rate will be reported separately for patients with recurrent/progressive malignant glioma(Stratum A), recurrent/progressive instrinsic brain stem tumors(Stratum B), recurrent/progressive medulloblastoma(Stratum C), and recurrent/progressive ependymoma(Stratum D). CR is complete disappearance of all enhancing tumor. PR is >= 50% reduction in tumor size. This outcome measures is not defined for the Stratum E in the protocol.

  • Sustained Disease Stabilization Rate Associated With Bevacizumab and Irinotecan in Patients With Recurrent or Progressive Low-grade Glioma (Stratum E) [ Time Frame: From day 1 of treatment up to 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Disease stabilization is defined as a complete response(CR) or partial response(PR) observed during the first four courses and sustained for 8 weeks; or stable disease (SD) sustained for 6 courses characterized by SD at the end of course 2, at the end of course 4 and at the end of course 6. CR is complete disappearance of all enhancing tumor. PR is >= 50% reduction in tumor size. SD is at least stable and maintenance corticosteroid dose not increased in neurologic examination.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Study Participants With Grade 3 or 4 Treatment-related Toxicity [ Time Frame: From day 1 of treatment until off study ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Adverse events are monitored and graded according to the Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events. The grade 1 = mild, grade 2=moderate, grade 3 =severe, grade 4=life threatening/disabling, grade 5=death.

  • Cumulative Incidence of Sustained Objective Responses [ Time Frame: From the first imaging after treatment up to 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Cumulative incidence of sustained objective response provides a percentage of participants experiencing the event of interest at a given follow-up time point (for example, 6-months, 1-year, etc.) in the presence of competing events such as progressive disease or death, and it is estimated using the event data for both the event of interest and the competing events experienced by the study participants. In this sense, it is different than the incidence rates estimated in epidemiological studies in terms of 'incidences per 1000 person years. 6-month Cumulative incidence of sustained objective responses will be reported separately for each stratum.

  • Progression-free Survival [ Time Frame: From start of treatment up to 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Progression-Free survival is the interval of time between of protocol treatment and minimum date of documentation of progressive Disease,second malignancy,death due to any cause, or date of last follow-up. Progressive neurologic abnormalities or worsening neurologic status not explained by causes unrelated to tumor progression,OR the appearance of new tumor OR a > 25% increase in the sum of the products of two longest perpendicular diameters of all measurable tumors. K-M method was used to estimate progression-free survival.

  • Change in Perfusion Ratio Between the Baseline and Day 15 Brain Imaging [ Time Frame: Baseline and day 15 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Perfusion ratio obtained from magnetic resonance(MR) diffusion imaging may explain changes in the tumor after therapy. Changes in the perfusion ratio will be reported for those strata that have a sufficient number of participants with MR diffusion imaging. The change was calculated from perfusion ratio at Baseline to perfusion ratio at Day 15(values of perfusion ratio at Day 15 - values of perfusion ratio at baseline). The higher of perfusion ratio is worse.

    MR perfusion ratio is perfusion solid part of tumor from CBV divided by perfusion frontal while matter. There is no a unit available.


  • Change in Diffusion Ratio Between the Baseline and Day 15 Brain Image [ Time Frame: Baseline and day 15 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Diffusion ratio obtained from magnetic resonance (MR) diffusion imaging may explain changes in the tumor after therapy. Changes in the diffusion ratio will be reported for those strata that have a sufficient number of participants with MR diffusion imaging. The change was calculated from diffusion ratio at Baseline to diffusion ratio at Day 15 (values of diffusion ratio at Day 15 -values of diffusion ration at baseline). The higher of diffusion ratio is better. MR diffusion ratio is the diffusion solid part of tumor divided by the diffusion frontal white matter. There is no a unit available.

  • Association of Log-transformed Tumor Volume Based on FLAIR With Progression-free Survival (PFS) Using Hazard Ratio Estimates [ Time Frame: From start of treatment until the earliest of progressive disease, death, second malignancy or off study OR up to 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Using Cox proportional hazards models, the association of tumor volume based on FLAIR images with PFS will be investigated for those strata that have a sufficient number of participants with volume FLAIR measurements. Volumetric magnetic resonance imaging is performed to investigate surrogate markers of tumor growth. Volume FLAIR measurements were longitudinal. As we are not comparing the strata, analyses will be done in each stratum separately, and thus we cannot report the Cox model results in the Statistical Analysis section. We consider these estimates 'descriptive' within each stratum. In this analysis, the hazard ratio is a relative measure of likelihood that a study participant experiences the event of interest compared to another participant who has a one-unit lower Log-transformed tumor volume based on FLAIR. The Cox survival model provides the mean hazard ratio along with its 95% confidence interval, which we report below.

  • Association of Log-transformed Tumor Enhancing Volume With Progression-free Survival (PFS) Using Hazard Ratio Estimates [ Time Frame: From start of treatment until the earliest of progressive disease, death, second malignancy or off study, OR up to 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Using Cox Proportional hazards Models, the association of Log-transformed tumor enhancing volume with progression-free survival will be investigated. Volumetric magnetic resonance (MR) imaging is performed to investigate surrogate markers of tumor growth. Tumor enhancing volumes were longitudinal. As we are not comparing the strata or study arms, analyses will be done in each stratum separately, and thus we cannot report the Cox model results in the Statistical Analysis section and we consider these estimates 'descriptive' within each stratum. In this analysis, the hazard ratio is a relative measure of likelihood that a study participant experiences the event of interest compared to another participant who has a one-unit lower Log-transformed tumor enhancing volume. The Cox survival model provides the mean hazard ratio along with its 95% confidence interval, which we report below.
