Vemurafenib in Treating Patients With Relapsed or Refractory Advanced Solid Tumors Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma or Histiocytic Disorders With BRAF V600 Mutations (A Pediatric MATCH Treatment Trial)


Brief description of study

This phase II Pediatric MATCH trial studies how well vemurafenib works in treating patients with solid tumors, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, or histiocytic disorders with BRAF V600 mutations that have spread to other places in the body and have come back or do not respond to treatment. Vemurafenib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

Detailed Study Description

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To determine the objective response rate (ORR; complete response + partial response) in pediatric patients treated with vemurafenib with advanced solid tumors (including central nervous system [CNS] tumors), lymphomas or histiocytic disorders that harbor activating BRAF V600 mutations.

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To estimate the progression free survival in pediatric patients treated with vemurafenib with advanced solid tumors (including CNS tumors), lymphomas or histiocytic disorders that harbor activating BRAF V600 mutations.

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

TERTIARY OBJECTIVES:

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

OUTLINE

Patients receive vemurafenib orally (PO) twice daily (BID) on day 1-28. Courses repeat every 28 days for up to 2 years in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
