The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT01247922
Recruitment Status : Terminated (In a pre-planned interim analysis, OSI-774-205 met futility for efficacy with no safety concerns. As a result, the companion trial, OSI-774-206 has been stopped)

Brief Summary:
Participants that were assigned to the oral etoposide treatment arm in protocol OSI-774-205 and either progressed while on study or discontinued due to unacceptable toxicity related to etoposide were allowed to participate in this study to assess the safety profile of single-agent erlotinib in participants with recurrent or refractory pediatric ependymoma.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Ependymoma Drug: Erlotinib Phase 2

Detailed Description:
The protocol-specified futility criteria were met at the second interim analysis dated 15 Aug 2012 for OSI-774-205. Per the Data Monitoring Committee's recommendation and FDA's agreement, the enrollment of patients in that study and Study OSI-774-206 was permanently closed.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Erlotinib

continuous oral Erlotinib 85 mg/m^2 per day
Other Names:
  • Tarceva
  • OSI-774

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety Assessed Through Evaluation of Physical Examinations, Vital Signs, Clinical Laboratory Tests, and Adverse Events (AEs) [ Time Frame: From first dose of study drug to 30 days after last dose of study drug (The mean treatment duration was 170.5 days) ]
    Safety is monitored through AEs, which includes abnormal or clinically significant vital sign assessments, laboratory test, physical examination findings associated with signs and/or symptoms requiring withdrawal, dose modification or medical intervention. A treatment-emergent adverse event (TEAE) was defined as an adverse event observed after starting administration of the study drug. An AE was considered serious (SAE) if it resulted in death, a life-threatening situation, inpatient hospitalization or prolongation of an existing hospitalization, persistent or significant disability/incapacity, congenital anomaly/birth defect in the offspring of a patient who received study drug or other important medical events.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Best Overall Response [ Time Frame: End of treatment (The mean treatment duration was 170.5 days.) ]
    Best overall response was derived from an integrated clinical assessment by the study investigator as per institutional standards. This included radiographic assessments deemed appropriate by the investigator in the normal care of the patient. A determination of best overall response at the end of study treatment (complete response, partial response, minor response or stable disease) was only made if (1) any disease-related neurologic symptoms were stable or improving over the interval of the radiographic assessment and (2) corticosteroid dosing for the control of tumor-related signs/symptoms was stable or decreasing.If the investigator deems that a radiographic assessment is not needed, then evidence of clinical improvement may be used to determine best response provided that corticosteroid dosing for tumor-related signs/symptoms is stable or decreasing.

  2. Median Treatment Duration [ Time Frame: From first dose of study drug up to last dose of study drug (The mean treatment duration was 170.5 days) ]
