Brief Summary:

This research study is studying a drug TAK-580 (MLN2480) as a possible treatment a low-grade glioma that has not responded to other treatments.

The name of the study drug involved in this study is:

• TAK-580 (MLN2480)


Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Low-grade Glioma Drug: TAK-580 Phase 1

Detailed Description:

This is a Phase I clinical trial. A Phase I clinical trial tests the safety of an investigational drug and also tries to define the appropriate dose of the investigational drug to use for further studies. "Investigational" means that the drug is being studied.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not approved TAK-580 as a treatment for any disease.

This is the first time that TAK-580 will be given to children. There is limited experience with TAK-580 in humans.

The purpose of this study is to test the safety TAK-580 in children and adolescent participants with brain tumors. The investigators want to find out what effects, good and/or bad, it has on participants and the participant's brain tumor, and find the dose of TAK-580 that is tolerated by participants without too many side effects to use in Phase II of the study.

Research in the laboratory has shown that TAK-580 may have activity against cancer cells. TAK-580 belongs to a group of drugs called type II BRAF inhibitors. BRAF abnormalities are found in cancer cells. There are no type II BRAF inhibitors approved by the FDA for humans at the time of this study's start. TAK-580 functions by binding the mutant BRAF molecule and causing a conformation change in the molecule thereby blocking the signal that tells the tumor cell to divide.

    A DLT is defined as an AE assessed as at least possibly related to the study medication, which occurs during Cycle 1 (typically 28 days following the first dose of TAK-580)


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Blood samples for TAK-580 concentration measurements (i.e. pharmacokinetic measures) [ Time Frame: cycle 1 day 1 1-4 hours post dose; cycle 1 day 3-6 random level; cycle 2 day 1 pre-dose; cycle 3 day 1 random level; end of therapy or at time of toxicity requiring patient be taken off study or dose held; time of surgery if applicable) ]
    measurement of phosphorylated ERK in peripheral blood mononuclear cells, will be performed on all patients in the phase I component of the trial

  2. Best Overall Response [ Time Frame: 48 Weeks ]
    Pediatric patients (>1 year and <25 years of age). each evaluable patient will be classified as either a responder (complete response, partial response, or stable disease) or a non-responder (<stable disease)

  3. Number of participants with adverse events [ Time Frame: 48 Weeks ]
    Frequency of adverse events (AEs) with once weekly administration of TAK-580

  4. Number of participants with serious adverse events [ Time Frame: 48 weeks ]
    Frequency of serious adverse events (SAEs) with once weekly administration of TAK-580

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Participants must meet the following criteria on screening examination to be eligible to participate in the study:

      • Mutational status requires a pathology report, genomic sequencing, or immunohistochemical report of a mutation or activation of the RAS/RAF/MEK/ERK pathway.
    • The remaining criteria include:

      • Patients must be >1 year and <25 years old.
      • Patients must have adequate performance status:

        • Karnofsky ≥ 50 for patients ≥ 16 years of age (See Appendix A).
        • Lansky ≥ 50 for patients < 16 years of age (See Appendix A).
