Trial identifier NCT01725191, ADVL1111, COG-ADVL1111, NCI-2012-02163, U01CA097452

Summary

This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of tivantinib in treating younger patients with solid tumors that have returned after a period of improvement or have not responded to treatment. Tivantinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

for agents that have known adverse events occurring beyond 7 days after administration, this period must be extended beyond the time during which adverse events are known to occur; the duration of this interval must be discussed with the study chair - Immunotherapy: At least 42 days after the completion of any type of immunotherapy, e.g. tumor vaccines - Monoclonal antibodies: At least 3 half-lives of the antibody after the last dose of a monoclonal antibody - Radiation therapy (XRT): At least 14 days after local palliative XRT (small port); at least 150 days must have elapsed if prior total-body irradiation (TBI), craniospinal XRT or if >= 50% radiation of pelvis; at least 42 days must have elapsed if other substantial bone marrow (BM) radiation - Stem cell infusion without TBI: No evidence of active graft vs. host disease and at least 84 days must have elapsed after transplant or stem cell infusion - Patients may not have received prior therapy with tivantinib - Peripheral absolute neutrophil count (ANC) >= 1000/mm^3 - Platelet count >= 100,000/mm^3 (transfusion independent, defined as not receiving platelet transfusions for at least 7 days prior to enrollment) - Patients with known bone marrow involvement will be eligible for study provided they meet the blood counts above (may receive transfusions provided they are not known to be refractory to red cell or platelet transfusions); these patients will not be evaluable for hematologic toxicity; at least 5 of every cohort of 6 patients with a solid tumor must be evaluable for hematologic toxicity for the dose escalation part of the study;

Additional Information

Official title A Phase 1 Study of the c-Met Inhibitor, Tivantinib (ARQ 197) in Children With Relapsed or Refractory Solid Tumors
Principal investigator James Geller
Description PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To estimate the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and/or recommended phase 2 dose of tivantinib administered orally twice daily to children with refractory solid tumors. II. To define and describe the toxicities of tivantinib administered on this schedule. III. To characterize the pharmacokinetics of tivantinib (capsule as well as powder formulation) in children with refractory cancer. SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: I. To preliminarily define the antitumor activity of tivantinib within the confines of a phase 1 study. II. To preliminarily investigate whether cytochrome P450 (CYP450) polymorphisms impact pharmacokinetics or toxicity of tivantinib. III. To preliminarily investigate whether tumor c-Met and/or hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) expression or downstream c-Met signaling correlate with clinical response to tivantinib. OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study. Patients receive tivantinib orally (PO) twice daily (BID) on days 1-28. Treatment repeats every 28 days for up to 12 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up for 30 days.
