Approximately 90% of children with malignant brain tumors that have recurred or relapsed after receiving conventional therapy will die of disease. Despite this terrible and frustrating outcome, continued treatment of this population remains fundamental to improving cure rates. Studying this relapsed population will help unearth clues to why conventional therapy fails and how cancers continue to resist modern advances. Moreover, improvements in the treatment of this relapsed population will lead to improvements in upfront therapy and reduce the chance of relapse for all. Novel therapy and, more importantly, novel approaches are sorely needed. This trial proposes a new approach that evaluates rational combination therapies of novel agents based on tumor type and molecular characteristics of these diseases. The investigators hypothesize that the use of two predictably active drugs (a doublet) will increase the chance of clinical efficacy. The purpose of this trial is to perform a limited dose escalation study of multiple doublets to evaluate the safety and tolerability of these combinations followed by a small expansion cohort to detect preliminary efficacy. In addition, a more extensive and robust molecular analysis of all the participant samples will be performed as part of the trial such that we can refine the molecular classification and better inform on potential response to therapy. In this manner the tolerability of combinations can be evaluated on a small but relevant population and the chance of detecting antitumor activity is potentially increased. Furthermore, the goal of the complementary molecular characterization will be to eventually match the therapy with better predictive biomarkers. PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: - To determine the safety and tolerability and estimate the maximum tolerated dose/recommended phase 2 dose (MTD/RP2D) of combination treatment by stratum. - To characterize the pharmacokinetics of combination treatment by stratum. SECONDARY OBJECTIVE: - To estimate the rate and duration of objective response and progression free survival (PFS) by stratum.
This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of ribociclib and everolimus and to see how well they work in treating patients with malignant brain tumors that have come back or do not respond to treatment. Ribociclib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as everolimus, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving ribociclib and everolimus may work better at treating malignant brain tumors.
The primary goal of this prospective clinical trial is to evaluate the safety of PEP-CMV in patients with recurrent medulloblastoma and malignant glioma. Patients with histologically-proven medulloblastoma or malignant glioma who had received definitive chemo-radiotherapy and subsequently had tumor recurrence/progression may be enrolled any time after recurrence/progression regardless of prior adjuvant therapy. PEP-CMV is a vaccine mixture of 2 peptides comprised in two components (referred to as Component A and Component B). Component A is a synthetic long peptide (SLP) of 26 amino acid residues from human pp65. Component B consists of a neutralizing antibody epitope from human CMV glycoprotein B (gB) conjugated to KLH.
This phase II trial studies how well olaparib works in treating patients with solid tumors, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, or histiocytic disorders with defects in deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) damage repair genes that have spread to other places in the body and have come back or do not respond to treatment. Olaparib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.
This phase II trial studies how well tazemetostat works in treating patients with solid tumors, non-hodgkin lymphoma, or histiocytic disorders that have spread to other places in the body and have come back or do not respond to treatment and have EZH2, SMARCB1, or SMARCA4 gene mutations. Tazemetostat may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.
