A Study to Test the Safety of the Investigational Drug Selitrectinib in Children and Adults That May Treat Cancer
- Advanced solid tumor for which, in the opinion of the investigator, no other standard therapy offers greater benefit.
- A solid tumor diagnosis in the setting of:
- a) a documented NTRK fusion and a clinical history of relapse following a response to a prior TRK inhibitor
- b) a documented NTRK fusion unresponsive to a prior TRK inhibitor
- c) a documented NTRK fusion and a clinical history of intolerance to a prior TRK inhibitor
- NTRK gene fusions will be identified in a CLIA-certified (or equivalent) laboratory. Patients with infantile fibrosarcoma (IFS) or congenital mesoblastic nephroma (CMN) may be enrolled based on an ETV6+ FISH test without identifying NTRK3.
- Performance Status: Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) score ≤ 3 (age ≥ 16 years) or Lansky Performance Score (LPS) ≥ 40% (age < 16 years). If enrolled with primary CNS tumor to be assessed by RANO, Karnofsky Performance Score (KPS) (age ≥ 16 years) or LPS (age < 16 years) ≥ 50%.
- Life expectancy > 4 weeks.
- Adequate hematologic, hepatic and renal function.
- Patients with stable CNS primary tumor, brain metastases, or treated spinal cord compression are eligible if neurological symptoms have been stable for 7 days prior to the first dose of selitrectinib
- Ability to receive study drug orally or by enteral administration
- Prior exposure to second generation TRK inhibitor (e.g. selitrectinib, TPX-0005). Exception is in case patient presented intolerance to the second generation TRK inhibitor agent and the duration of exposure was less than 28 days. No previous treatment with selitrectinib is allowed.
- Concurrent treatment with a strong CYP3A4 inhibitor or inducer, consumption of grapefruit juice or Seville oranges, or drugs associated with QT prolongation.
- Clinically significant active cardiovascular disease or history of myocardial infarction within 3 months prior to planned start of selitrectinib, or prolongation of QT interval corrected for heart rate (QTc interval) >480 milliseconds within past 6 months
- Major surgery within 7 days of enrollment
- Uncontrolled systemic bacterial, fungal or viral infection.
- Pregnancy or lactation.
- Known hypersensitivity to selitrectinib or Ora-Sweet® SF and OraPlus® for patients receiving liquid formulation.

The trial will be conducted in 2 parts: dose escalation (Phase 1) and dose expansion (Phase 2) . The primary objective of Phase 1 is to establish the recommended dose of selitrectinib to treat neurotrophic tyrosine kinase (NTRK) fusion cancers in patients a) aged 12 years and older and b) younger than 12 years. Secondary objectives of Phase 1 are to characterize the pharmakokinetic properties of the test drug, its safety and tolerability, and to assess the objective response rate (ORR) of NTRK-tumors. The primary objective of Phase 2 is to assess the overall response rate in NTRK fusion cancer patients as determined by an independent radiology committee (IRR). Secondary objectives of Phase 2 comprise the safety and efficacy of selitrectinib at the recommended dose.
