To establish the anti-tumour effect of this metronomic combination regimen defined by progression-free survival (PFS) after two cycles of treatment (4 months) and 12 months of treatment, as well as response rate after any number of cycles of treatment ("best response").

To define the safety profile of the combination. To characterize pharmacodynamics of the drug combination with the use of angiogenic markers (CEP, CEC, microparticles).

Detailed Description:

Multi-center, combination phase II study, open-label, non-comparative, non-randomized.

All progressive or recurrent solid tumours will be included in the Phase II study, provided there are no curative options anymore.

Total expected number of patients (minimum maximum): 54 to 90 (2-stage design)


Ages Eligible for Study:   4 Years to 21 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients must have a histologically or cytologically confirmed malignant solid tumour.
  • Progression or recurrence of the tumour radiologically established or confirmed within the 4 weeks prior to inclusion.
  • Disease must be considered refractory to any line of conventional therapy or for which no effective conventional treatment exists.
  • Age: ≥4 to 21 years of age at study entry
  • Life expectancy: at least 8 weeks
  • ECOG Performance status ≤ 1 or Lansky-Play Scale ≥ 70%
  • Written informed consent of parent/guardian and patient assent
  • Wash out of 4 weeks in case of prior chemotherapy, 6 weeks if treatment included nitrosoureas, 2 weeks in case of vincristine alone; 6 weeks in case of prior radiotherapy (except palliative radiotherapy on non measurable lesions).
  • Patients must have recovered from the acute toxic effects of all prior therapy before enrolment into the study
  • Able to comply with scheduled follow-up and with management of toxicity
  • All patients with reproductive potential must practice an effective method of birth control while on study.
  • Female patients aged > 12 years must have a negative pregnancy test within 7 days before study treatment.
  • Capable of swallowing oral medication

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Pregnant and breast feeding women.
