a study on Glioma
This is a multicenter, safety and pharmacokinetic trial to determine the MTD and/or select a recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D) of vemurafenib in children with recurrent or refractory gliomas containing the BRAFV600E or BRAF Ins T mutation.
PNOC-002: Safety, Phase 0, and Pilot Efficacy Study of Vemurafenib, an Oral Inhibitor of BRAFV600E, in Children and Young Adults With Recurrent/Refractory BRAFV600E- or BRAF Ins T Mutant Brain Tumors
This is a multicenter, safety and pharmacokinetic trial to determine the MTD and/or select a recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D) of vemurafenib in children with recurrent or refractory gliomas containing the BRAFV600E or BRAF Ins T mutation. Using the RP2D, the study team will then conduct a Phase 0 study in a pre-surgical cohort of 10 patients requiring debulking surgery at the time of recurrence. These patients will receive neo-adjuvant vemurafenib, thus allowing the study team to measure intra-tumoral drug concentrations and target inhibition. An expansion cohort will then be enrolled to allow the study team to preliminarily estimate efficacy.

Open to people ages up to 25 years
Specific inclusion criteria for Pre-Surgical Cohort:
Specific inclusion criteria for Expansion cohort:
• Expansion cohort will be open if tissue drug levels in the Pre-Surgical cohort meet criteria (Tumor tissue drug concentration is greater than 50 nM). Patients under 25 years of age will be eligible for the expansion cohort. Patients between 18 and 25 years of age will take adult dose of 960 mg BID. Patients less than 18 years of age will take the MTD defined in the safety cohort.
