Information is also accessible through the patient and families tab. Family friendly summaries are created and reviewed by our advocacy partners. The information is updated to the best of our knowledge but might not reflect the latest information. Note that most studies are only available at a limited number of sites, please click on ‘further information’ for details. Studies, particularly early phase trials, may also temporarily close to enrolment or not have slots available for all treatment groups. In all cases, study teams at individual C17 centres will have the most up-to-date information.

Study Description

This study is to evaluate the drug called BMS-986158 as a possible treatment for pediatric solid tumors, lymphoma, or brain tumors. BMS-986158 belongs to a group of drugs called "Bromodomain (BRD) and Extra-Terminal Domain (BET) inhibitors". These drugs block proteins from the BET family that are important in reading part of the DNA involved in apoptosis and cell cycle progression. It is expected to slow or stop the growth of cancer cells.

The aim of this phase I study is to evaluate the dose, safety, tolerability, antitumor activity and other pharmacologic characteristics of BMS-986158 in children with refractory or relapsed pediatric solid tumors, lymphoma, or brain tumors for which no standard therapy is available or for which the subject is not eligible for the existing therapy.

Inclusion Criteria
  • Age ≤ 21 years at time of enrollment.
  • All patients must be able to swallow intact capsules.
  • Participants must have evaluable or measurable disease and must have disease that is relapsed or refractory and for which standard curative measures do not exist or are no longer effective.

  • Disease genetic alterations: MYCN amplification or high copy number gain, translocation involving MYC or MYCN, translocation involving BRD4 or BRD3

Multiple other inclusion and exclusion criteria could apply and will be reviewed by your treating team.
