Brief Summary:

The main objectives of this trial are to determine the recommended dose of ridaforolimus for pediatric participants with advanced solid tumors by measuring the number of participants experiencing dose-limiting toxicities (DLTs) while on different doses of ridaforolimus, and to characterize the pharmacokinetics of ridaforolimus in these participants. The primary hypotheses of this study are that 1) the DLTs observed will be dose-dependent and allow for definition of a maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and 2) at a safe and well tolerated dose, ridaforolimus geometric mean (GM) Day-5 blood area under the concentration-time curve at 24 hours (AUC0-24) exceeds 75% (or 1304-ng*hr/mL) of the estimated GM Day-5, 40-mg AUC0-24 in adults.

Study-related visits concluded in August 2013. Participants who did not have disease progression, adequately tolerated therapy, and continued to meet eligibility criteria for 6 months after the enrollment period had been completed could continue treatment in an extension phase until they met discontinuation criteria or voluntarily withdrew.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Ridaforolimus 22 mg/m^2

Drug: Ridaforolimus
Oral administration of 10 mg enteric-coated tablets at doses of 22 mg/m^2, 28 mg/m^2, or 33 mg/m^2 based on body surface area (BSA), once daily for 5 consecutive days each week in consecutive 28-day cycles.
Other Name: MK-8669

Experimental: Ridaforolimus 28 mg/m^2
Participants receive 28 mg/m^2 of ridaforolimus administered orally for 5 consecutive days each week (2 days rest) in consecutive 28-day cycles for up to six months. Eligible participants can receive additional treatment in an extension phase of the study.
Drug: Ridaforolimus
Oral administration of 10 mg enteric-coated tablets at doses of 22 mg/m^2, 28 mg/m^2, or 33 mg/m^2 based on body surface area (BSA), once daily for 5 consecutive days each week in consecutive 28-day cycles.
Other Name: MK-8669

Experimental: Ridaforolimus 33 mg/m^2
Participants receive 33 mg/m^2 of ridaforolimus administered orally for 5 consecutive days each week (2 days rest) in consecutive 28-day cycles for up to six months. Eligible participants can receive additional treatment in an extension phase of the study.
Drug: Ridaforolimus
Oral administration of 10 mg enteric-coated tablets at doses of 22 mg/m^2, 28 mg/m^2, or 33 mg/m^2 based on body surface area (BSA), once daily for 5 consecutive days each week in consecutive 28-day cycles.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Participants Experiencing a Dose Limiting Toxicity (DLT) According to National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events Version 4.0 (NCI-CTCAE v.4.0) [ Time Frame: Cycle 1 (cycle = 28 days) ]
    DLT defined using NCI-CTCAE v.4.0 as any of the following events occurring during the first 28-day cycle that were possibly, probably, or definitely study drug-related: Grade 4 neutropenia for ≥5 days; Grade 3-4 neutropenia associated with fever, antibiotics, or hospitalization for infection; Grade 4 thrombocytopenia for ≥5 days or requiring platelet transfusion; ≥Grade 3 hyperglycemia for ≥5 days despite management; ≥Grade 3 diarrhea for >24 hours despite management; ≥Grade 3 nausea or vomiting despite management; any other Grade ≥3 non-hematological toxicity persisting despite management (except alopecia, transient electrolyte abnormalities, transient Grade 3 liver function test elevations, and Grade 3 neurotoxicity for participants with baseline Grade 3 neurotoxicity); inability to complete DLT assessment period, interruption in dosing for >10 dosing days during DLT assessment period, or any delay in the initiation of the next cycle for >10 dosing days due to any related toxicity.

  2. Area Under the Concentration-Time Curve of Ridaforolimus From Time 0 to 24 Hours (AUC0-24 hr) [ Time Frame: Day 5 of Cycle 1 [28-day cycle]: pre-dose (0.0 hours) and 0.5, 1.0, 2.0, 4.0, 8.0, and 24.0 hours after administration of ridaforolimus ]
    AUC is a measure of the amount of drug in the blood over time. Whole blood samples were collected pre-dose (within 5 minutes of ridaforolimus administration) and post-dose at specified time points on Day 5 of the first week of Cycle 1 to determine AUC0-24 hr.
