  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to test whether perifosine- a drug that inhibits the protein AKT, and has had some success in the treatment of adult cancers- is safe and effective in treating cancer. The investigators want to find out what effects, good and/or bad, it has on the patient and the cancer. The investigators are testing different dose schedules of perifosine and the patient will be asked to partake in one of the dose schedules.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) of perifosine monotherapy in children with cancer [ Time Frame: conclusion of the study ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine whether pharmacokinetic serum levels correlate with toxicity [ Time Frame: conclusion of the study ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • If previously resected tissue is available, determine whether molecular features predict response including Elevated PI3K/AKT/mTOR signaling, Elevated RAS/MAPK signaling, Cell cycle markers [ Time Frame: conclusion of the study ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 36

Estimated Study Completion Date: October 2015
Estimated Primary Completion Date: October 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: perifosine
This will be a dose escalation study to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of perifosine alone in recurrent/progressive pediatric tumors. A standard 3+3 dose escalation design will be employed with 3-6 patients at each dose level.
Drug: perifosine
Open label, phase I study of oral perifosine in recurrent/progressive pediatric solid tumors. This will be a dose escalation study to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of perifosine alone in recurrent/progressive pediatric tumors. A standard 3+3 dose escalation design will be employed with 3-6 patients at each dose level. All patients will receive perifosine at a loading dose on the first day, followed by a maintenance dose to start on day two until progression each patient will be assigned to a dosing group based on one's body surface area (BSA).

Exclusion Criteria:
