Abemaciclib in Children With DIPG or Recurrent/Refractory Solid Tumors
Abemaciclib in Children With Newly Diagnosed Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma, and in Children With Recurrent and Refractory Solid Tumors Including Malignant Brain Tumors
This is a Phase I clinical trial evaluating abemaciclib (LY2835219), an inhibitor of cyclin dependent-kinases 4 and 6 (Cdk 4/6) in children and young adults with newly diagnosed diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG) (Stratum A) and in relapsed/refractory/progressive malignant brain (Grade III/IV, including DIPG; MBT) and solid tumor (ST) patients (Stratum B).

Stratum A- Appropriate dose RT will be administered in 30-33 fractions over approximately 6 weeks for Stratum A patients. Treatment with abemaciclib (LY2835219) will start on the same day as radiation therapy (RT) and continue twice daily during and after RT for a maximum treatment duration of 2 years. Investigators plan to treat a maximum of 4 cohorts of research participants (dosage levels 1, 2, 3, and 4) with escalating doses of abemaciclib (LY2835219) starting with dose level 1 (80% of adult dose). A cycle is defined as 28 days and the first 6 weeks of therapy will constitute the dose-limiting toxicity (DLT)-evaluation period. Participants must take abemaciclib by mouth as intact capsules.

Stratum B - Abemaciclib (LY2835219) will be administered orally on a twice daily basis continuously for 28 days, which defines one cycle. The maximum treatment duration will be 2 years. Investigators plan to treat a maximum of 4 cohorts of research participants (dosage levels 1, 2, 3, and 4) with escalating doses of abemaciclib starting with dose level 1 (80% of adult dose). Dose escalation will be independent of Stratum A escalation. A cycle is defined as 28 days and the first 4 weeks of therapy will constitute the DLT-evaluation period. Participants must take abemaciclib by mouth as intact capsules.

Inclusion Criteria for All Participants:

  • Patient must have measurable or evaluable disease.
  • Age must be ≥ 2 years and < 25 years
  • Body surface area (BSA) ≥ 0.5 m^2
  • Lansky (for participants ≤ 16 years) or Karnofsky (for participants > 16 years) performance score ≥ 40 at the time of study enrollment
  • Adequate organ function at the time of study enrollment as follows:

    • Bone marrow: Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥ 1,000/μL, platelet count ≥ 75,000/μL (transfusion independent for ≥ 7 days), hemoglobin concentration ≥ 8g/dL (may be transfused)
    • Patients with bone marrow metastatic disease who do not meet the above criteria will be eligible to enroll in the study with the following count criteria. These patients will not be evaluable for hematologic toxicity or hematologic DLT.

      • ANC > 750/μL within 7 days prior to first dose of abemaciclib
      • Platelet count > 50,000/μL (may receive platelet transfusions) within 7 days prior to first dose of abemaciclib
      • Hemoglobin ≥ 7.5 g/dL (may receive red blood cell (RBC) transfusions) within 7 days prior to first dose of abemaciclib
    • Renal: Normal serum creatinine concentration based on age or glomerular filtration rate (GFR) > 70 ml/min/1.73m^2
    • Hepatic: Total bilirubin concentration < 1.5x the institutional upper limit of normal for age; serum glutamic pyruvic transaminase (SGPT) < 10x the institutional upper limit of normal for patients on Stratum A. Stratum B patients must have SGPT < 4x the institutional upper limit of normal.
    • Cardiac: Adequate cardiac conductivity with corrected Q-T interval (QTC) of < 450 ms on screening ECG.
  • Female research participants of childbearing age must not be pregnant as confirmed by a serum or urine pregnancy test within 1 week of start of treatment. Participants must not be breast-feeding.

Inclusion Criteria for Stratum B (Recurrent/refractory/progressive MBT (including DIPG) or ST)

  • Patients must have radiologic evidence of recurrent, refractory or progressive malignant central nervous system (WHO Grade III or IV) or solid tumor. For patients with radiologic features of DIPG histologic confirmation of diagnosis is not required though biopsy is suggested if clinically indicated.
  • Patients with neurological deficits should have deficits that are stable for a minimum of 1 week prior to registration.
  • Patients who are on dexamethasone must be on a stable or decreasing dose for at least one week prior to registration.
  • Patients must have fully recovered from the acute toxic effects of chemotherapy, immunotherapy, or radiotherapy prior to entering this study.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patients with uncontrolled infection
  • Patients with any concomitant significant medical illness that in the investigator's opinion cannot be adequately controlled with appropriate therapy, or that would impair the evaluation of side effects related to this treatment, alter drug metabolism or the tolerance to this treatment
