Brief Summary

This study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of Lutathera (177Lu-DOTATATE) in pediatric and young adult patients with progressive or recurrent High-Grade Central Nervous System (CNS) tumors and meningiomas (any grade) that express Somatostatin Type 2A Receptors by immunohistochemistry and demonstrate uptake on DOTATATE PET. The drug will be given intravenously once every 8 weeks for a total of up to 4 doses over 8 months in patients aged 4-12 years (Phase I) or older than 12 yrs (Phase II) to test its safety and efficacy, respectively.

Detailed Description

Somatostatin receptors regulate cell growth through downstream modulation of both proliferation and apoptosis signaling pathways, and thus represent a potential therapeutic target. Lutathera (Lutetium [Lu]177 Dotatate) is a radionuclide therapy which binds type-2A somatostatin receptors (SST2A) and has recently gained FDA approval for the treatment of adult gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors expressing SST2A. High SST2A expression has been consistently observed in medulloblastoma and other embryonal tumors (75-100% of cases) as well as in some HGGs and anaplastic ependymomas (13-80%), with corresponding uptake on radiolabeled somatostatin receptor nuclear imaging (e.g. DOTATATE PET). Emerging data has demonstrated treatment response (disease stabilization or regression) to somatostatin receptor-targeted therapy in children and young adults with relapsed medulloblastoma, HGG, meningioma, and brain metastases of neuroendocrine tumors, suggesting sufficient CNS penetration to achieve therapeutic benefit. The proposed Phase I-II study will investigate the safety and efficacy of Lutathera treatment in pediatric and young adult patients whose tumors express SST2A (measured by immunohistochemistry) and demonstrate uptake on DOTATATE PET. In both Phase cohorts, Lutathera will be administered as an intravenous infusion on day 1 of each 8-week cycle for up to 4 cycles. Phase I: (4-12 years) To determine the safety, define the dose-limiting toxicities, and establish the maximally tolerated dose (MTD)/ recommended Phase II dose (RP2D) of Lutathera in this patient population. The first cycle (first 8 weeks) will be used as the dose-limiting toxicity (DLT) observation period. The starting dose will be dose level 1, 200 mCi*(body surface area [BSA]/1.73m2), which corresponds to the BSA-adjusted FDA approved adult dosing of Lutathera (200 mCi every 8 weeks). Once the MTD/RP2D is established, an efficacy expansion cohort of up to 10 patients will be opened to determine the preliminary efficacy of the MTD/RP2D of Lutathera in this cohort. Phase II: (>12 years) Enroll patients at the recommended adult dose of 200 mCi every 8 weeks to determine the anti-tumor activity of Lutathera at this dosing in this population. Response will be assessed on imaging (brain and/or spine MRI and DOTATATE PET) following every cycle.

Eligibility

Criteria:

All subjects must meet the following inclusion and exclusion criteria. No exceptions will be given. Imaging studies to establish eligibility must be done within three weeks prior to enrollment. All other clinical evaluations to establish eligibility (except for SST2A IHC) must be done within 7 days prior to enrollment. 1. Screening Criteria 1.1 Diagnosis Patient must have a diagnosis of primary high-grade CNS tumor (any histopathologic diagnosis that is WHO grade III-IV) or meningioma (any histologic grade) that is recurrent, progressive, or refractory. Note that patients with DIPG (based on radiographic/clinical diagnosis) who have undergone biopsy will be eligible with histologic diagnosis of grade II-IV infiltrating glioma. All tumors must have histologic verification either at the time of diagnosis or recurrence, except for patients meningioma who have not previously undergone biopsy or resection. Note: Refractory disease is defined as the presence of persistent abnormality on conventional MRI imaging that is further distinguished by histology (biopsy or sample of lesion) or advanced imaging, OR as determined by the treating physician and discussed with the primary investigator prior to enrollment. 1.2 Adequate Pre-trial Tumor Tissue Patient must have adequate pre-trial tumor material (from initial diagnosis and/or recurrence) available for SST2A IHC preparation and interpretation. Patients with meningioma who have pre-trial tumor tissue available are required to submit tissue; however, this is not required for eligibility for meningioma patients if no prior biopsy/resection has been performed. 1.3 Prior Therapy Patients must have recurred/progressed following prior standard therapy for their tumor. Note: with meningioma, atypical meningioma, or anaplastic meningioma must have received at least surgical resection or radiation. 1.4 Screening Consent Participant/legal guardian is willing to sign a screening consent. The screening consent is for SST2A IHC analysis and if there is evidence of SST2A expression by IHC, DOTATATE PET imaging. The screening consent is to be obtained according to institutional guidelines. Assent, when appropriate, will be obtained according to institutional guidelines. 2. Eligibility Criteria - Phase I Age Patient must be ≥ 4 and < 12 years of age at the time of enrollment.

Criteria to Start Treatment - Subjects must start therapy within seven (7) days of enrollment. - Laboratory values must be no older than 7 days prior to the start of therapy. If a test that is repeated post enrollment and prior to the start of therapy is outside the limits for eligibility, it must be rechecked within 48 hours prior to the start of therapy. If rechecks are still outside the limits for eligibility, the patient may not receive protocol therapy and will be considered off study.

Type: Experimental

Description: Pediatric patients (4 -12 years, Phase I) and adolescent and young adult patients (>12years, Phase II) with recurrent/progressive high-grade central nervous system tumors and meningiomas that express SST2A and demonstrate uptake on DOTATATE PET will receive Lutathera once every 8 weeks (1 cycle) for a total of 4 doses over 8 months Phase I starting dose will be 200 mCi*(BSA/1.73m2), corresponding to the BSA-adjusted FDA approved adult Lutathera dosing. The first cycle will be used as the DLT period. Once MTD/RP2D is established, an efficacy expansion cohort of up to 10 patients will be opened to determine the preliminary efficacy of MTD/RP2D of Lutathera in this cohort Phase II patients will receive the adult RP2D of 200 mCi every 8 weeks to determine the anti-tumor activity of Lutathera in this patient population, through evaluation of 6-month PFS as the primary efficacy endpoint. Response will be assessed on imaging (brain/spine MRI and DOTATATE PET) following every cycle.
