RATIONALE: Monoclonal antibodies, such as bevacizumab, can block tumor growth in different
ways. Some block the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Others find tumor cells and
help kill them or carry tumor-killing substances to them. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such
as cyclophosphamide, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by
killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Zoledronic acid may stop the growth of
tumor cells in bone. Giving bevacizumab together with cyclophosphamide and zoledronic acid
may kill more tumor cells.
PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying the side effects of giving bevacizumab together with
cyclophosphamide and zoledronic acid in treating patients with recurrent or refractory
Official title: A Phase I Study of Bevacizumab With Bolus and Metronomic Cyclophosphamide and Zoledronic Acid in Children With Recurrent or Refractory Neuroblastoma
Study design: Endpoint Classification: Safety Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment
Primary outcome: Determination of toxicities and feasibility of the combination of bolus plus metronomic cyclophosphamide and zoledronic acid with and without bevacizumab when given to children with refractory or recurrent high risk neuroblastoma.
Evaluation of response within the confines of a phase I study.
Analysis of Circulating Endothelial Cells, Circulating Factors, Gene expression and Bone Metabolism Studies.
- To determine the toxicities and feasibility of bolus and metronomic cyclophosphamide
when given in combination with zoledronic acid with and without bevacizumab in patients
with recurrent or refractory high-risk neuroblastoma.
- To preliminarily evaluate the antitumor activity of this regimen in these patients
within the confines of a pilot study.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patients receive cyclophosphamide IV over 1 hour and zoledronic acid IV over 15 minutes on
day 0 and oral cyclophosphamide once daily on days 1-27 in course 1. In course 2 and all
subsequent courses, patients receive bevacizumab IV over 30-90 minutes on days 0 and 14,
cyclophosphamide IV over 1 hour and zoledronic acid IV over 15 minutes on day 1, and oral
cyclophosphamide once daily on days 0 and 2-27. Treatment repeats every 28 days for up to 2
years* in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
NOTE: *Patients may receive up to 13 doses of zoledronic acid.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed periodically.
Minimum age: N/A.
Maximum age: 30 Years.
- Patients must be no more 30 years of age when enrolled on study.
- Patients must have relapsed neuroblastoma, refractory neuroblastoma that had less
than a partial response to standard treatment or persistent neuroblastoma that had at
least a partial response to standard treatment.
- Patients who have at least a partial response to standard treatment who still have
neuroblastoma that can be seen on CT/MRI or MIBG scans must have a surgical biopsy
done of the tumor to confirm that it is neuroblastoma. Patients with relapsed or
refractory neuroblastoma do not need to have a biopsy done to enter on study.
- Patients must have adequate heart, kidney, liver blood clotting and bone marrow
function. Patients who have bone marrow disease must meet the bone marrow function
criteria to enter the study.
- Patients must have recovered from all prior chemotherapy and surgical procedures
- They are known to be sensitive to Bevacizumab.
- They have a history of very high blood pressure which required intensive intervention
- They are pregnant or breastfeeding
- Neuroblastoma is present in the brain on a CT or MRI scan done at study entry.
Patients with neuroblastoma found in the bones of the skull are eligible if there is
no tumor mass associated with them pressing on the brain.
- They have a history non healing wounds
