Estimated Enrollment: 36
Study Start Date: December 2003

Ages Eligible for Study:   6 Months to 21 Years   (Child, Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients from 6 months to 21 years of age.
  • Malignant disease documented by conventional criteria to be refractory to standard, approved therapy, or for which no conventional therapies of definitive benefit exist.
  • Immunohistochemistry documentation of positivity of either Kit (CD117) or PDGF-R in tumor tissue relevant. Each positive tumor will be centrally reviewed before inclusion of the patient in the trial.
  • Measurable or evaluable disease.
  • WHO Performance status 0,1, or 2 or Lansky Play Scale >= 50%.
  • Adequate organ function, defined as the following: total bilirubin < 1.5 x ULN, SGOT and SGPT < 2.5 x UNL (or < 5 x ULN if hepatic disease involvement is present), creatinine < 1.5 x ULN, ANC > 1x 109/L, platelets > 75 x 109/L.
  • Female patients of child-bearing potential must have negative pregnancy test within 7 days before initiation of study drug dosing.
  • Male and female patients of reproductive potential must agree to employ an effective barrier method of birth control throughout the study and for up to 3 months following discontinuation of study drug.
  • Life expectancy of more than 6 weeks.
  • Written, voluntary, informed consent, including consent for retrieval and investigational use of tissue samples for evaluation signed by parents or young adult patients.
  • National and, when needed, local ethical approval.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patient with hematological disease positive for the chimeric BCR-ABL fusion protein or for c-kit.
  • Patient has received any other investigational agents within 28 days of first day of study drug dosing.
  • Female patients who are pregnant or breast-feeding.
  • Patient has another severe and/or life-threatening medical diseasePatient has an acute or known chronic liver disease (e.g., chronic active hepatitis, cirrhosis).
  • Patient has a known diagnosis of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection.
  • Patient has received chemotherapy within 4 weeks (6 weeks for nitrosourea, mitomycin-C or any antibody therapy) prior to study entry unless urgent enrollment needed and approved by the study coordinator.
