Brief Summary:
This research study is studying an investigational drug called BMS-986158 as a possible treatment for pediatric solid tumors, lymphoma, or brain tumors.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Solid Tumor, Childhood Lymphoma Brain Tumor, Pediatric Drug: BMS-986158 Phase 1

Detailed Description:

This is a Phase I clinical trial, which tests the safety of an investigational drug and also tries to define the appropriate dose of the investigational drug to use for further studies. "Investigational" means that the drug is being studied.

The FDA (the U.S. Food and Drug Administration) has not approved BMS-986158 as a treatment for any disease.

BMS-986158 is currently still being studied in adults. This is the first time that BMS-986158 will be evaluated in younger children, though children 12-17 years of age may also be included in parts of adult studies of BMS-986158.

Research in the laboratory has shown that BMS-986158 may have activity against cancer cells. BMS-986158 belongs to a group of drugs called Bromodomain (BRD) and Extra-Terminal Domain (BET) inhibitors. These drugs block proteins that are important in reading DNA, which is a process important for cancer cells.

  • Diagnosis requirement

    • Participants must have evaluable or measurable disease (see Section 11).
    • Must have disease that is relapsed or refractory and for which standard curative measures do not exist or are no longer effective.
    • For Cohort A, participants must have histologically confirmed non-CNS primary solid tumors or lymphoma based upon biopsy or surgery at relapse/progression. Patients without biopsy or surgery at relapse/progression and with tissue only available from initial diagnosis may still be considered after discussion with the overall Primary Investigator.
    • For Cohort B, participants must have histologically confirmed solid tumors, lymphoma, or primary CNS tumor based upon biopsy or surgery at relapse/progression as well as documentation of one of the following confirmed tumor molecular features obtained in a laboratory certified to return results for clinical purposes. Patients without biopsy or surgery at relapse/progression and with tissue only available from initial diagnosis may still be considered after discussion with the overall Primary Investigator.
    • MYCN amplification or high copy number gain
    • MYC amplification or high copy number gain
    • Translocation involving MYC or MYCN
    • Translocation involving BRD4 or BRD3
  • Patients must have fully recovered from the acute toxic effects of all prior anti-cancer therapy except organ function as noted in Section 3.1.5. Patients must meet the following minimum washout periods prior to enrollment:
