Summary

This trial is studying how well treatment that is directed by genetic testing works in pediatric patients with solid tumors or non-Hodgkin lymphomas.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for pediatric patients aged 12 months to 21 years with advanced solid tumors, non-Hodgkin lymphomas, or histiocytic disorders that have worsened after treatment or lack standard survival-prolonging treatments. They must have recovered from previous therapies' side effects, be able to swallow pills, and meet specific blood count and organ function criteria.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The Pediatric MATCH trial tests if targeted therapy based on genetic testing can effectively treat children's cancers. It involves various interventions like imaging scans and biopsies to identify mutations in tumor genes, followed by matching patients with medications targeting those mutations.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Potential side effects depend on the specific medication given but may include fatigue, nausea, liver issues (elevated enzymes), skin reactions (rash), digestive problems (diarrhea), blood cell changes leading to increased infection risk or bleeding tendencies.

Trial Design

12Treatment groups
Experimental Treatment
Group I: Subprotocol N (activating RET mutations)Experimental Treatment11 Interventions
Patients with activating RET gene alterations receive selpercatinib PO BID on days 1-28. Treatment repeats every 28 days for up to 26 cycles (2 years) in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients may also undergo PET, CT, MRI, PET/CT, PET/MRI, and/or CT/MRI, scintigraphy, and x-ray imaging throughout the trial.
Group II: Subprotocol J (MAPK pathway mutations)Experimental Treatment6 Interventions
Patients with MAPK pathway mutations receive ulixertinib PO BID. Cycles repeat every 28 days for up to 2 years in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Group III: Subprotocol I (Rb positive, alterations in cell cycle genes)Experimental Treatment6 Interventions
Patients with Rb positive advanced solid tumors, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, or histiocytic disorders with activating alterations in cell cycle genes receive palbociclib PO QD on days 1-21. Cycles repeat every 28 days for up to 2 years in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Group IV: Subprotocol H (ATM, BRCA1, BRCA2, RAD51C, RAD51D mutations)Experimental Treatment6 Interventions
Patients deleterious ATM, BRCA1, BRCA2, RAD51C, or RAD51D gene mutations receive olaparib PO BID on days 1-28. Cycles repeat every 28 days for 2 years in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Group V: Subprotocol G (BRAF V600 gene mutation)Experimental Treatment6 Interventions
Patients with a BRAF V600 gene mutation receive vemurafenib PO BID on days 1-28. Cycles repeat every 28 days for 2 years in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Group VI: Subprotocol F (ALK or ROS1 gene alteration)Experimental Treatment13 Interventions
Patients with an ALK or ROS1 gene alteration receive ensartinib PO BID on days 1-28. Cycles repeat every 28 days for 2 years (up to 26 cycles) in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
