This randomized phase II trial studies how well irinotecan hydrochloride and temozolomide with temsirolimus or dinutuximab work in treating younger patients with neuroblastoma that has returned or does not respond to treatment. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as irinotecan hydrochloride and temozolomide, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Temsirolimus may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Monoclonal antibodies, such as dinutuximab, may find tumor cells and help kill them or carry tumor-killing substances to them. It is not yet known whether giving irinotecan hydrochloride and temozolomide together with temsirolimus or dinutuximab is more effective in treating neuroblastoma.
Further Study Information
I. To identify whether temsirolimus or ch14.18 (dinutuximab) is the optimal therapeutic agent to consider for further testing in a future Phase III randomized trial for treatment of newly diagnosed high-risk neuroblastoma.
II. To determine the response rate of patients with relapsed, refractory or progressive neuroblastoma following treatment with irinotecan, temozolomide and ch14.18 (dinutuximab) and to compare this with the known response rate of patients treated with irinotecan and temozolomide alone.
I. To compare the response rates (RR) for patients receiving temsirolimus or ch14.18 (dinutuximab) in combination with irinotecan (irinotecan hydrochloride) and temozolomide.
II. To compare the progression free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS) rates for patients receiving temsirolimus or ch14.18 (dinutuximab) in combination with irinotecan and temozolomide.
III. To compare the toxicities associated with temsirolimus or ch14.18 (dinutuximab) when combined with irinotecan and temozolomide in patients with refractory, relapsed or progressive neuroblastoma.
IV. To compare the ability to maintain intended dose intensity of all agents when temsirolimus or ch14.18 (dinutuximab) is combined with irinotecan and temozolomide in patients with refractory, relapsed or progressive neuroblastoma.
V. To determine the concordance between tumor responses as defined by standard International Neuroblastoma Response Criteria (INRC) versus response per the revised INRC.
VI. To study the clinical relevance of naturally occurring anti-glycan antibodies in patients receiving ch14.18 (dinutuximab) antibody.

VIII. To study the association between host factors and response to irinotecan, temozolomide and ch14.18 (dinutuximab).
IX. To characterize the tumor immune-microenvironment (gene expression; immune effector cells, activities and signaling molecules; immune target expression) following treatment with irinotecan, temozolomide and ch14.18 (dinutuximab).
X. To study the association between changes in the tumor immune-microenvironment (gene expression; immune effector cells, activities and signaling molecules; immune target expression) with response following treatment with irinotecan, temozolomide and ch14.18 (dinutuximab).
XI. To study the association between tumor genomic and transcriptomic aberrations as well as levels of circulating ganglioside (GD2) with response to irinotecan, temozolomide and ch14.18 (dinutuximab).
OUTLINE: Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms.
ARM I (CLOSED TO ACCRUAL 06/17/2016): Patients receive temozolomide orally (PO) on days 1-5, irinotecan hydrochloride intravenously (IV) over 90 minutes on days 1-5, and temsirolimus IV over 30 minutes on days 1 and 8.
ARM II: Patients receive temozolomide PO on days 1-5, irinotecan hydrochloride over 90 minutes on days 1-5, dinutuximab IV over 10-20 hours on days 2-5, and sargramostim subcutaneously (SC) or IV over 2 hours on days 6-12.
In both arms, treatment repeats every 21 days for up to 17 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up periodically.
Patients must have had histologic verification of neuroblastoma or ganglioneuroblastoma or demonstration of neuroblastoma cells in the bone marrow with elevated urinary catecholamines (i.e., > 2 x upper limit of normal [ULN]), at the time of initial diagnosis
For the purposes of this study, aggressive multidrug chemotherapy is defined as chemotherapy including 2 or more agents that must include an alkylating agent and a platinum-containing compound; patients must have ONE of the following:

First episode of progressive disease during aggressive multi-drug frontline therapy
Primary resistant/refractory disease (less than partial response by INRC) detected at the conclusion of at least 4 cycles of aggressive multidrug induction chemotherapy on or according to a high-risk neuroblastoma protocol (examples include A3973, ANBL0532, ANBL09P1, etc.)
Patients must have at least ONE of the following:
Measurable tumor on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT) scan obtained within 3 weeks prior to study entry; measurable is defined as >= 10 mm in at least one dimension on spiral/helical CT that is metaiodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) avid or demonstrates increased fludeoxyglucose (FDG) uptake on positron emission tomography (PET) scan
MIBG scan obtained within 3 weeks prior to study entry with positive uptake at a minimum of one site; this site must represent disease recurrence after completion of therapy, progressive disease on therapy, or refractory disease during induction
Patients with resistant/refractory soft tissue disease that is not MIBG avid or does not demonstrate increased FDG uptake on PET scan must undergo biopsy to document the presence of viable neuroblastoma; biopsy is not required for patients who have new site of soft tissue disease (radiographic evidence of disease progression) regardless of whether progression occurs while receiving therapy or after completion of therapy
Note: Patients with elevated catecholamines (i.e., > 2 x ULN) only or bone marrow disease only are NOT eligible for this study

At least 7 days must have elapsed since the completion of therapy with a non-myelosuppressive biologic agent or retinoid
No interim time prior to study entry is required following prior radiation therapy (RT) for non-target lesions; however, patients must not have received radiation for a minimum of 4 weeks prior to study entry at the site of any lesion that will be identified as a target lesion to measure tumor response; lesions that have been previously radiated cannot be used as target lesions unless there is radiographic evidence of progression at the site following radiation or a biopsy done following radiation shows viable neuroblastoma; palliative radiation is allowed to sites that will not be used to measure response during this study
