Description

Summary

This phase I trial studies the effects and best dose of ONC206 alone or in combination with radiation therapy in treating patients with diffuse midline gliomas that is newly diagnosed or has come back (recurrent) or other recurrent primary malignant brain tumors. ONC206 is a recently discovered compound that may stop cancer cells from growing. This drug has been shown in laboratory experiments to kill brain tumor cells by causing a so called "stress response" in tumor cells. This stress response causes cancer cells to die, but without affecting normal cells. ONC206 alone or in combination with radiation therapy may be effective in treating newly diagnosed or recurrent diffuse midline gliomas and other recurrent primary malignant brain tumors.

Official Title

Open Label Phase 1 and Target Validation Study of ONC206 in Children and Young Adults With Newly Diagnosed or Recurrent Diffuse Midline Glioma (DMG), and Other Recurrent Primary Malignant Brain Tumors

Details

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To determine the safety and tolerability of DRD2 antagonist/ClpP agonist ONC206 (ONC206). II. To determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of ONC206 as single agent in children and young adults with diffuse midline glioma (DMG) who completed at least one line of prior therapy that included focal radiation therapy. (Arm A). III. To determine the MTD of ONC206 in combination with focal radiation therapy in newly diagnosed children and young adults with DMG. (Arm B). IV. To determine the MTD of ONC206 in combination with re-irradiation in children and young adults with first progression of DMG. (Arm C). V. To determine the MTD of ONC206 in children and young adults with recurrent primary malignant brain tumors. (Arm D). VI. To assess the concentration of ONC206 in tumor tissue from children and young adults with DMG and compare to plasma drug levels pre-surgery. (Target validation). VII. To assess the concentration of ONC206 in tumor tissue in children and young adults with recurrent primary malignant brain tumors and compare to plasma drug levels pre-surgery. (Target validation). SECONDARY OBJECTIVE: I. To describe the pharmacokinetics associated with ONC206 without radiation therapy. (Arms A and D). EXPLORATORY OBJECTIVES: I. Determine changes in cranial nerve scoring. II. Determine clinical responses within the confines of a phase 1/expansion study. III. Evaluate correlation of amount of serum and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) with clinical outcome. IV. Evaluate association of clinical outcomes with anatomic location of tumor, H3K27 mutation status and other partner mutations. V. Pharmacodynamic (PD) effects in tumor tissue. VI. Assess the overall response rate to ONC206 in patients with prior ONC201 exposure. VII. Assess pharmacodynamics (PD) of ONC206 and perform exploratory pharmacokinetic (PK)-PD analyses to investigate and identify the relationship between drug exposure and clinical endpoints for both safety and efficacy. VIII. To assess Health-Related Quality of Life (HRQoL) and cognitive measures. OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study of ONC206. Patients are assigned to 1 of 4 arms. ARMS A and D: Patients receive ONC206 orally (PO) once daily (QD) on days 1, 8, 15, 22. Cycles repeat every 28 days for up to 12 months in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. ARMS B and C: Patients undergo standard of care radiation therapy daily 5 days a week and receive ONC206 as in Arm A. After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up at 30 days and then every 3 months for up to 5 years.

For any biologic or small molecule agent with known adverse events that can occur beyond 7 days after administration, the period prior to enrollment must be beyond the time during which adverse events are known to occur (these should be discussed with the study team)
  • ARM B: Newly diagnosed children and young adults (2-21 years of age) with a diagnosis of DMG are eligible, including spinal cord DMGs
  • ARM B: Tumor tissue confirmation of DMG is mandatory and pathology must be consistent with a DMG including DMG H3K27M mutant and WHO grade III and IV H3 wildtype gliomas. WHO grade II diffuse astrocytomas or other low grade gliomas without H3K27M mutation are not eligible
  • ARM C: Children and young adults with DMGs (2-21 years of age) who have evidence of first progression but have not been treated for this progression and are recommended to get reirradiation
  • ARM C: Patients must have undergone prior focal radiation therapy as part of their initial therapy and should be at least 6 months from prior radiation therapy. If timing is less than 6 months from prior focal radiation, these patients need to be discussed with the study chair(s)
  • ARM C: Tumor tissue confirmation of DMG is mandatory and pathology must be consistent with a DMG including DMG H3K27M mutant and WHO grade III and IV H3 wildtype gliomas. WHO grade II diffuse astrocytomas or other low grade gliomas without H3K27M mutation are not eligible
