Magrolimab in Children and Adults With Recurrent or Progressive Malignant Brain Tumors
Children and adults with recurrent or progressive malignant brain tumors have a dismal prognosis, and outcomes remain very poor. Magrolimab is a first-in-class anticancer therapeutic agent targeting the Cluster of differentiation 47 (CD47)-signal receptor protein-alpha (SIRP-alpha) axis. Binding of magrolimab to human CD47 on target malignant cells blocks the "don't eat me" signal to macrophages and enhances tumor cell phagocytosis. Pre-clinical studies have shown that treatment with magrolimab leads to prolonged survival in models of Atypical Teratoid Rhabdoid Tumors (ATRT), diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG), high-grade glioma (adult and pediatric), medulloblastoma, and embryonal tumors formerly called Primitive Neuro-Ectodermal Tumors (PNET). Safety studies in humans have proven that magrolimab has an excellent safety profile. Ongoing studies are currently testing magrolimab in adult myelodysplastic syndromes, acute myeloid leukemia, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, colorectal, ovarian, and bladder cancers. Herein we propose to test the safety of magrolimab in children and adults with recurrent or progressive malignant brain tumors.
A Phase 1 Study of Magrolimab in Children and Adults With Recurrent or Progressive Malignant Brain Tumors
This is a single arm, 2 strata multi-center study that will be conducted through the Pacific Pediatric Neuro-oncology Consortium (PNOC). Stratum A consists of children (ages 3-17) with recurrent or progressive malignant brain tumors and Stratum B consists of adults (ages ≥ 18) with recurrent or progressive malignant brain tumors. Participants with midline tumors (e.g., midline high grade gliomas (HGG), DIPG, and diffuse midline glioma) will be excluded. PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: Children (3-17 years of age) 1. To assess the safety and tolerability of magrolimab in children (Stratum A) with recurrent or progressive malignant brain tumors. 2. To determine the recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D) for magrolimab in children (Stratum A) with recurrent or progressive malignant brain tumors. Adults (18 years and older) 1. To assess the safety and tolerability of magrolimab in adults (Stratum B) with recurrent or progressive malignant brain tumors. 2. To determine the recommended Phase 2 dose for magrolimab in adults (Stratum B) with recurrent or progressive malignant brain tumors. EXPLORATORY OBJECTIVES: 1. To evaluate the pharmacokinetic (PK) profile of magrolimab in blood and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in children and adults with recurrent or progressive malignant brain tumors. 2. To evaluate Ferumoxytol MRI imaging as a biomarker for intratumoral macrophages during treatment with magrolimab in children and adults with recurrent or progressive malignant brain tumors. 3. To evaluate the changes in the immune cells in the peripheral blood and CSF and changes in the immune cytokine milieu in the peripheral blood serum and CSF during treatment with magrolimab in children and adults with recurrent or progressive malignant brain tumors. 4. To evaluate the changes in the amounts of cell-free tumor DNA in the peripheral blood and CSF during treatment with magrolimab in children and adults with recurrent or progressive malignant brain tumors. 5. To assess Quality of Life (QOL) and cognitive measures in children and adults with recurrent or progressive malignant brain tumors treated on this trial. Participants may continue to receive magrolimab for up to 12 months or longer from the time of study entry, pending discussion with study chairs and study sponsor. Participants will be followed for up to 5 years after completion of treatment, or until removal from study, or until death, whichever occurs first.

Study Participants in Stratum A and Stratum B:
- Diagnosis of recurrent or progressive malignant primary brain tumor (WHO grade III or IV), including recurrent ependymoma (WHO grade II and III).
- Histologic confirmation of malignancy at original diagnosis or relapse is required for study entry.
- Participants must have measureable disease. Measurable disease will be defined as lesions that can be accurately measured in two dimensions (longest diameters to be recorded) with a minimum size of no less than double the slice thickness. Previously irradiated lesions are considered non-measurable except in cases of documented progression of the lesion since the completion of radiation therapy.
- Prior Therapy:
- The patient must have failed at least one prior therapy, with or without surgery, prior to study registration. Prior therapies may include one of more of the following interventions: chemotherapy, immunotherapy, radiotherapy. Surgery alone does not constitute prior therapy. Patients must have fully recovered from clinically relevant acute toxic effects of all prior chemotherapy, immunotherapy, or radiotherapy prior to entering this study.
- Myelosuppressive chemotherapy: Patients must have received their last dose of known myelosuppressive anticancer chemotherapy at least three weeks prior to study registration or at least six weeks prior if nitrosourea or mitomycin C.
- Biologic agent: Patient must have recovered from any acute toxicity potentially related to the agent and received their last dose of the biologic agent ≥ 7 days prior to study registration.
- For agents that have known adverse events occurring beyond 7 days after administration, this period must be extended to beyond the time during which adverse events are known to occur. The duration of this interval should be discussed with the study chair.
- For biologic agents that have a prolonged half-life, the appropriate interval since last treatment should be discussed with the Study Chair prior to registration.
- Monoclonal antibody treatment: At least 28 days or 4 half-lives must have elapsed prior to registration, whichever is shorter. Such patients should be discussed with the study chair prior to registration.
- Bone Marrow Transplant:
o Patients must be >= 3 months since autologous bone marrow/stem cell prior to registration
- Participants must have:
- Had their last fraction of local irradiation to primary tumor >=12 weeks prior to registration; investigators are reminded to review potentially eligible cases to avoid confusion with pseudo-progression.
- Had their last fraction of craniospinal irradiation or total body irradiation >+ 12 weeks prior to registration.
- Had their last fraction of palliative radiation ≥ 14 days prior to registration.
- Performance Score: Karnofsky >= 50 for participants > 16 years of age and Lansky >=50 for participants <=16 years of age. Participants who are unable to walk because of paralysis, but who are up in a wheelchair, will be considered ambulatory for the purpose of assessing the performance score.
o Participants who are receiving corticosteroids must be on a stable or decreasing dose for at least 7 days prior to enrollment. Stable dose should not be greater than dexamethasone 0.1 mg/kg/day (maximum 4 mg/day) or equivalent dose of alternate corticosteroid (physiologic replacement only).
