COG APEC1621N - NCI-COG Pediatric MATCH (Molecular Analysis for Therapy Choice) - Phase 2 Subprotocol of LOXO-292 in Patients with Tumors Harboring RET Gene Alterations


The NCI-COG Pediatric MATCH (Molecular Analysis for Therapy Choice) study, referred to as Pediatric MATCH, will match targeted agents with specific molecular changes identified using genomic sequencing technologies in refractory/recurrent tumors from children and adolescents with cancer. The NCI-COG Pediatric MATCH study (APEC1621) is considered one study under one IND consisting of a Master Version Control protocol, screening protocol component and multiple subprotocol components, with each component being contained in its own separate document. Each “component” consists of the protocol document and its associated informed consent document. The Master Version Control Protocol is the overarching administrative protocol that will keep an up-to-date record of the current version of the screening protocol component and each subprotocol component of Pediatric MATCH. Since each subprotocol component operates independently from the other subprotocol components contained in Pediatric MATCH, each has its own version date. Likewise, the screening protocol component has its own version date since changes in any of the subprotocols may not require changes in the screening protocol.

Patients with neuroblastoma who do not have measurable disease but have metaiodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) positive (+) evaluable disease are eligible. Measurable disease in patients with CNS involvement is defined as any lesion that is at minimum 10 mm in one dimension on standard MRI or CT
• Note: The following do not qualify as measurable disease:
• Malignant fluid collections (e.g., ascites, pleural effusions)

The duration of this interval must be discussed with the study chair and the study-assigned research coordinator
• Interleukins, interferons and cytokines (other than hematopoietic growth factors): >= 21 days after the completion of interleukins, interferon or cytokines (other than hematopoietic growth factors)

• Note: Radiation may not be delivered to "measurable disease" tumor site(s) being used to follow response to subprotocol treatment
• Radiopharmaceutical therapy (e.g., radiolabeled antibody, 131I-MIBG): >= 42 days after systemically administered radiopharmaceutical therapy
• Patients must not have received prior exposure to selpercatinib (LOXO-292) or other specific RET inhibitors

• Peripheral absolute neutrophil count (ANC) >= 1000/mm^3
• For patients with solid tumors without known bone marrow involvement (within 7 days prior to enrollment):
• Platelet count >= 100,000/mm^3 (transfusion independent, defined as not receiving platelet transfusions for at least 7 days prior to enrollment)
• Patients with known bone marrow metastatic disease will be eligible for study provided they meet the blood counts (may receive transfusions provided they are not known to be refractory to red cell or platelet transfusions). These patients will not be evaluable for hematologic toxicity
