Not eligable: Patients who experienced recent major surgery, cardiac issues, uncontrolled infections, malabsorption, pregnancy, or lactation can not participate.
WHAT is the key question that this trial is attempting to answer?
|This study aims to investigate a drug called LOXO-292. The trial tries to find out whether the drug is effective and safe in the treatment of pediatric participants with an activating RET gene alteration and advanced solid or primary CNS tumors.
WHY patients might want to participate?
|This clinical trial is specifically designed for pediatric participants with an activating RET gene alteration, offering a personalized treatment approach that may directly address the genetic characteristics of their tumor. This trial will further support the research in solid tumors incl. sarcomas and potentially help other patients with this disease. The trial might or might not have benefit in your individual case.
WHEN will the trial be open?
|This study is open for recruitment.
WHERE is the trial available?

STUDY DESIGN: What does the study look like?
|This study includes 2 parts: Phase 1 (dose escalation) and phase 2 (dose expansion).
In phase 1, participants will be enrolled using a rolling 6 dose escalation scheme. The starting dose of LOXO-292 is equivalent to the adult recommended phase 2 dose of 160 milligrams (mg) twice a day (BID).
Once the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and/or recommended dose is identified, participants will be enrolled to one of four phase 2 dose expansion cohorts depending on tumor histology and tumor genotype. Cycle length will be 28 days.
The drug is taken orally (by mouth).
