Brief Summary:
This phase II Pediatric MATCH trial studies how well ensartinib works in treating patients with solid tumors, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, or histiocytic disorders with ALK or ROS1 genomic alterations that have come back or do not respond to treatment and have spread to other places in the body. Ensartinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

Detailed Description:

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To determine the objective response rate (ORR; complete response + partial response) in pediatric patients treated with ensartinib with advanced solid tumors (including central nervous system [CNS] tumors), non-Hodgkin lymphomas or histiocytic disorders that harbor ALK or ROS1 fusions or that harbor ALK missense mutations.

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To estimate the progression free survival in pediatric patients treated with ensartinib with advanced solid tumors (including CNS tumors), non-Hodgkin lymphomas or histiocytic disorders that harbor ALK or ROS1 fusions or that harbor ALK missense mutations.

II. To obtain information about the tolerability of ensartinib in children with relapsed or refractory cancer.

III. To provide preliminary estimates of the pharmacokinetics of ensartinib in children with relapsed or refractory cancer.

TERTIARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To evaluate other biomarkers as predictors of response to ensartinib and specifically, whether tumors that harbor different missense mutations or fusions (including the crizotinib resistant F1174L ALK variant) will demonstrate differential response to ensartinib treatment.

II. To explore approaches to profiling changes in tumor genomics over time through evaluation of circulating tumor deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA).

Patients receive ensartinib orally (PO) once daily (QD) on days 1-28. Courses repeat every 28 days for 2 years in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Objective response rate [ Time Frame: Up to 4 years ]
    A responder is defined as a patient who achieves a best response of partial response or complete response on the study. Response rates will be calculated as the percent of evaluable patients who are responders, and confidence intervals will be constructed using the Wilson score interval method.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Incidence of toxicity evaluated according to National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events version 4.0 [ Time Frame: Up to 4 years ]
    All patients who receive at least one dose of protocol therapy will be considered in the evaluation of toxicity. Toxicity tables will be constructed to summarize the observed incidence by type of toxicity and grade. Toxicity information recorded will include the type, severity, time of onset, time of resolution, and the probable association with the study regimen.

  2. Progression free survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: From the initiation of protocol treatment to the occurrence of disease progression or disease recurrence or death from any cause, assessed up to 4 years ]
    PFS along with the confidence intervals will be estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method.


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Pharmacokinetic (PK) parameters [ Time Frame: Pre-dose, 1, 2, 4, 6-8, and 20-24 hours post day 1 dose and pre-dose, 1, 2, 4, and 6-8 hours post day 28 dose of course 1 ]
    A descriptive analysis of PK parameters will be performed to define systemic exposure, drug clearance, and other pharmacokinetic parameters. The PK parameters will be summarized with simple summary statistics, including means, medians, ranges, and standard deviations (if numbers and distribution permit).

  2. Biomarkers as predictors of response to ensartinib [ Time Frame: Up to 4 years ]
    Descriptive analysis will be performed and will be summarized with simple summary statistics.

  3. Changes in tumor genomic profile [ Time Frame: Up to 4 years ]
    Approaches to profiling changes in tumor genomics over time through evaluation of circulating tumor DNA will be explored. Descriptive analysis will be performed and will be summarized with simple summary statistics.
