|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma||Radiation: Radiation Therapy Drug: Temsirolimus Drug: Vorinostat||Phase 1|
I. To estimate the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) or recommended phase 2 dose of temsirolimus in combination with vorinostat given every four weeks in patients with diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG).
II. To define and describe the toxicities of the combination vorinostat and temsirolimus administered on this schedule.
I. To define the antitumor activity of the combination of vorinostat and temsirolimus within the confines of a phase 1 study.
II. To assess the biologic effects of vorinostat and temsirolimus on the signaling pathways of interest in these tumors.
III. To evaluate response with advanced neuroimaging (including magnetic resonance spectroscopy) and correlate with fiber tract changes using tractography and fractional anisotropy.
OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study of temsirolimus. Patients are assigned to 1 of 2 arms.
CHEMORADIOTHERAPY PHASE: Patients receive vorinostat once daily (QD) and undergo radiation therapy QD for 30 fractions over 6-7 weeks.
MAINTENANCE PHASE: Four to six weeks after the completion of radiation therapy, patients receive vorinostat PO QD and temsirolimus intravenously (IV) over 30-90 minutes on days 1-8 of each cycle. Treatment repeats every 28 days for 10 cycles in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
ARM II: Patients receive vorinostat PO QD and temsirolimus IV over 30-90 minutes on days 1-8 of each cycle. Treatment repeats every 28 days for 12 cycles in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up at 3, 6, 9, and 12 months.

Experimental: Arm I (vorinostat, radiation therapy, temsirolimus)
CHEMORADIOTHERAPY PHASE: Patients receive vorinostat QD and undergo radiation therapy QD for 30 fractions over 6-7 weeks.
MAINTENANCE PHASE: Four to six weeks after the completion of radiation therapy, patients receive vorinostat PO QD and temsirolimus IV over 30-90 minutes on days 1-8 of each cycle. Treatment repeats every 28 days for 10 cycles in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Radiation: Radiation Therapy
Undergo radiation therapy
Experimental: Arm II (vorinostat, temsirolimus)
Patients receive vorinostat PO QD and temsirolimus IV over 30-90 minutes on days 1-8 of each cycle. Treatment repeats every 28 days for 12 cycles in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
- Maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of temsirolimus [ Time Frame: 28 days (course 1) ]MTD will be defined as the highest dose studied in which six patients have been treated and at most two patients with dose limiting toxicities (DLTs) are observed. DLTs will be monitored for the first course of the combination of vorinostat and temsirolimus.
- Incidence of toxic death [ Time Frame: Up to 12 months ]
- Incidence of adverse events [ Time Frame: Up to 12 months ]Adverse events will be tabulated by dose, grade, and attribution.
- Radiographic response [ Time Frame: Up to 12 months ]Will be evaluated using the Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors from the National Cancer Institute. Best response will be tabulated by dose and category (complete response, partial response, stable disease and progressive disease).
