Brief Summary:
9-ING-41 has anti-cancer clinical activity with no significant toxicity in adult patients. This Phase 1 study will study its efficacy in paediatric patients with advanced malignancies.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Refractory Cancer Refractory Neoplasm Cancer Pediatric Refractory Tumor Pediatric Cancer Pediatric Brain Tumor Neuroblastoma Neuroblastoma Recurrent Pediatric Lymphoma Pediatric Meningioma Drug: 9-ING-41 Drug: Irinotecan Phase 1

Detailed Description:
9-ING-41 is a first-in-class, intravenously administered, maleimide-based, small molecule, potent selective GSK-3β inhibitor with significant pre-clinical and clinical anticancer activity. In the ongoing Actuate 1801 study in a cohort of over 90 patients with advanced refractory malignancies, 9-ING-41 has exhibited no significant toxicity, including no myelosuppression, and significant anti-tumor activity. 9-ING-41 also has significant pre-clinical ability to reverse pathologic fibrosis in multiple models of pulmonary and pleural fibrosis. 9-ING-41 is very highly active against neuroblastoma in diverse pre-clinical models. This Phase 1 study is designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of 9-ING-41, as a single agent or in combination with irinitecan, in paediatric patients with advanced malignancies and thus to establish the recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D) for further paediatric patient studies.

Ages Eligible for Study:   up to 22 Years   (Child, Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

Patients must meet ALL the following criteria to be eligible for this study:

  1. Age < 22 years of age
  2. Diagnosis of recurrent or refractory malignancy with histologic verification of malignancy at original diagnosis or relapse, except patients with extra-cranial germ-cell tumors who have elevations of serum tumor markers including alpha-fetoprotein or beta-HCG, and/or patients with intrinsic brain stem tumors or patients with CNS-germ cell tumors and elevations of CSF or serum tumor markers including alpha-fetoprotein or beta-HCG.
  3. Have either measurable or evaluable disease. Evaluable disease is defined as an assessment of tumor that cannot be measured using a ruler or calipers, but can be used to determine disease progression or response (e.g., positive lesions on MIBG or bone scan, metastatic bone marrow disease, elevated tumor markers, or presence of a malignant pleural effusion)
  4. Have current disease state for which there is no known curative therapy or therapy proven to prolong survival with an acceptable quality of life
  5. Have Performance Level: Karnofsky ≥ 50% for patients >16 years of age and Lansky ≥50 for patients ≤16 years of age
  6. Neurologic deficits in patients with CNS tumors must have been relatively stable for at least 7 days prior to study enrollment. Patients with CNS tumors who are receiving steroids must be on a stable or decreasing dose for at least 7 days prior to study entry. Patients who are unable to walk because of paralysis, but who are up in a wheelchair, will be considered ambulatory for the purpose of assessing the performance score
  7. Have fully recovered from the acute clinically significant toxic effects of prior anti-cancer therapy

    • Myelosuppressive chemotherapy: On first day of treatment be at least 7 days after the last dose of myelosuppressive chemotherapy for single agent 9 ING 41, at least 21 days after the last dose of myelosuppressive chemotherapy for 9-ING-41 plus irinotecan
    • Hematopoietic growth factors: At least 14 days after the last dose of a long-acting growth factor or 7 days for short-acting growth factor
