NCI-COG Pediatric MATCH (Molecular Analysis for Therapy Choice) - Phase 2 Subprotocol of Palbociclib in Patients with Tumors Harboring Activating Alterations in Cell Cycle Genes
Bone and Soft Tissue (including Sarcoma)
Germ Cell Tumor
12 Months - 21 Years, Male and Female
This phase II Pediatric MATCH trial studies how well palbociclib works in treating patients with Rb positive solid tumors, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, or histiocytic disorders with activating alterations (mutations) in cell cycle genes that have spread to other places in the body and have come back or do not respond to treatment. Palbociclib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.
I. To determine the objective response rate (ORR; complete response + partial response) in pediatric patients treated with palbociclib with advanced solid tumors (including central nervous system [CNS] tumors), non-Hodgkin lymphomas or histiocytic disorders that harbor activating genetic alterations in cell cycle genes.
I. To estimate the progression free survival in pediatric patients treated with palbociclib with advanced solid tumors (including CNS tumors), non-Hodgkin lymphomas or histiocytic disorders that harbor activating genetic alterations in alterations in cell cycle genes.
II. To obtain information about the tolerability of palbociclib in children and adolescents with relapsed or refractory cancer.
I. To explore approaches to profiling changes in tumor genomics over time through evaluation of circulating tumor deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA).
Patients receive palbociclib orally (PO) once daily (QD) on days 1-21. Courses repeat every 28 days for up to 2 years in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

**Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. These studies test new ways to prevent, detect, diagnose, or treat diseases. People who take part in cancer clinical trials have an opportunity to contribute to scientists’ knowledge about cancer and to help in the development of improved cancer treatments. They also receive state-of-the-art care from cancer experts... Click here to learn more about clinical trials
