Solid Tumor : Recurrent or refractory rhabdomyosarcoma
Rhabdomyosarcoma, a tumor of the skeletal muscle is the most common soft tissue sarcoma of childhood. Patients with tumors that have come back after treatment or do not respond to treatment have a poor outcome. At this time, there is no standard treatment for patients who have rhabdomyosarcoma that is not responding to treatment or has come back after treatment. Treatment options are based on many factors. These include where in the body the cancer is and what type of treatment the patient had before. This study is testing 2 experimental drug combinations in the hope of finding a new therapy for fighting this type of cancer. The 2 drug combinations are: Vinorelbine and cyclophosphamide with bevacizumab and Vinorelbine and cyclophosphamide with temsirolimus.
The drugs vinorelbine and cyclophosphamide were given safely in a study to treat a small number of children with recurrent or refractory sarcomas, including rhabdomyosarcoma. In this study, the doctors want to find out if giving bevacizumab or temsirolimus along with vinorelbine and cyclophosphamide is safe. They also want to see how effective each of the 2 drug combinations is against recurrent or refractory rhabdomyosarcoma. Bevacizumab and temsirolimus are experimental anticancer drugs that have not yet been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for use in treating rhabdomyosarcoma that is not responding to treatment or has come back after treatment. Bevacizumab and temsirolimus work differently than the drugs vinorelbine and cyclophosphamide. As tumors grow, they need new blood vessels to grow with them in order to receive nutrients and survive. Bevacizumab works by blocking the growth of blood vessels, including blood vessels in tumors. Temsirolimus blocks a protein called mTOR. mTOR is involved in tumor growth, including the growth of blood vessels.
