Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to test the safety of neratinib at different dose levels and to find out what effects, good and bad, it has on the patients and the cancer.

Official Title: A Phase I/II Study of Neratinib in Pediatric Patients With Relapsed or Refractory Solid Tumors

Drug Information available for: Neratinib

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Neratinib
There are 2 parts to this study: a Phase I part and a Phase II part. The Phase I portion is known as the dose escalation phase where neratinib will be tested in groups of 3-6 patients to establish the maximum tolerated dose (MTD). The phase II portion will determine whether the MTD shows a response to the tumor.
Drug: Neratinib
Neratinib will be administered orally, or through existing gastrostomy feeding tube, once a day with food, preferably in the morning, continuously for 28-day cycles, with no rest between cycles. Dose will be scaled by body surface area (BSA).

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. the number of patients who have experienced Dose Limiting Toxicity [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    NCI CTCAE Version 4.0.Definition of Hematologic Dose-Limiting Toxicity (solid tumor cohort only) Any hematologic toxicity as indicated: Febrile neutropenia defined as Grade 3 or 4 neutropenia with fever ≥ 38.5°C and /or infection requiring antibiotic or antifungal treatment Grade 4 neutropenia lasting > 7 days Grade 4 thrombocytopenia lasting > 7days Any drug-related adverse experience, regardless of grade, leading to a dose reduction of a study drug. Non-Hematologic Dose-Limiting Toxicities: Non-hematologic dose-limiting toxicity will be defined as any Grade 3, 4 or 5 nonhematologic toxicity with the specific exception of: Any grade diarrhea that occurs in the setting of poor compliance with supportive measures that last for < 48 hours Any grade dehydration related to diarrhea that occurs in the setting of inadequate compliance to supportive care measures that last for < 48 hours.

  • Negative β-human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) pregnancy test for female patients of child-bearing potential ≤ 7 days before starting neratinib therapy.
  • Female patients of reproductive potential must agree and commit to the use of a highly effective method of contraception, as determined to be acceptable by the investigator, from the time of informed consent until 28 days after the last dose of the investigational product. Male patients must agree and commit to use a barrier method of contraception while on treatment and for 3 months after the last dose of the investigational product.
  • Written informed consent/assent prior to any study-specific procedures.
  • Patient must be able to swallow tablet or have existing gastrostomy feeding tube to enable administration of tablet.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Prior treatment within the following timeframes:

    • Systemic chemotherapy or biologic therapy ≤ 2 weeks or 5 half lives (t ½) of the agent used, whichever is shorter, prior to the start of neratinib
    • Radiation therapy outside the central nervous system ≤ 14 days prior to neratinib
    • Radiation to the central nervous system ≤ 12 weeks prior to initiation of neratinib
