NCI-COG Pediatric MATCH (Molecular Analysis for Therapy Choice) Screening Protocol
This Pediatric MATCH screening and multi-sub-study phase II trial studies how well treatment that is directed by genetic testing works in pediatric patients with solid tumors, non-Hodgkin lymphomas, or histiocytic disorders that have progressed following at least one line of standard systemic therapy and/or for which no standard treatment exists that has been shown to prolong survival.
Genetic tests look at the unique genetic material (genes) of patients' tumor cells. Patients with genetic changes or abnormalities (mutations) may benefit more from treatment which targets their tumor's particular genetic mutation, and may help doctors plan better treatment for patients with solid tumors or non-Hodgkin lymphomas.
I. To utilize clinical and biological data to screen for eligibility to phase 2 pathway-targeting specific subprotocols of pathway-targeting agents in pediatric patients with advanced solid tumors, non-Hodgkin lymphomas, and histiocytic disorders.
II. To determine the proportion of pediatric patients whose advanced tumors have pathway alterations that can be targeted by select anti-cancer drugs.
III. To determine the objective response rates (ORR; complete response + partial response) in pediatric patients with advanced solid tumors, non-Hodgkin lymphomas, and histiocytic disorders harboring a priori specified genomic alterations treated with pathway-targeting agents.
