- 13 to <16 years, male max 1.5, female max 1.4
- 16 years, male max 1.7, female max 1.4
- Urine protein should be screened by dipstick analysis. If protein ≥ 2+ on dipstick, then Urine Protein Creatinine (UPC) ratio should be calculated. If UPC ratio >1, 24-hour urine protein should be obtained and the level should be <1000 mg/24 hours for patient enrollment. Note: UPC ratio of spot urine is an estimation of the 24 hour urine protein excretion- a UPC ratio of 1 is roughly equivalent to a 24-hour urine protein of 1 gm. UPC ratio is calculated using of the following formulae: [urine protein]/[urine creatinine] - if both protein and creatinine are reported in mg/dL [(urine protein x 0.088]/[urine creatinine] - if urine creatinine is reported in mmol/L
- Patient must have adequate liver function defined as:
- Total bilirubin ≤1.5x upper limit of normal for age (ULN)
- SGPT (ALT) ≤ 2.5 x the upper limit of normal (ULN) for age
- Patients with a seizure disorder are eligible if well-controlled on anticonvulsants. If on a non-enzyme inducing anticonvulsant, the irinotecan dose will be adjusted as outline in treatment plan.
- Sexually active patients of childbearing potential must agree to use an effective method of contraception during the study and for at least 6 months after the completion of bevacizumab therapy.
- Patient or legally authorized representative must be able to understand and willing to sign a written informed consent document.
- Patient must not have had myelosuppressive chemotherapy ≤ 3 weeks prior to entry onto this study (or 6 weeks if prior nitrosourea).

|Official title||Evaluation of FDOPA-PET/MRI in Pediatric Patients With CNS Tumors, A Feasibility Study|
|Principal investigator||Karen Gauvain, M.D.|
|Description||Evaluate the feasibility of using FDOPA-PET/MRI pediatric patients with CNS tumors. Positive results in this small study would provide the data needed to expand the study to validate the use in a larger population of pediatric patients. Validating the use of FDOPA-PET imaging as an early predictor for response to anti-angiogenic therapy could greatly impact the standard of care for treating and evaluating pediatric brain tumors and provide a useful biomarker for assessing experimental therapeutics.|
