Brief Summary:
This phase II Pediatric MATCH trial studies how well selumetinib sulfate works in treating patients with solid tumors, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, or histiocytic disorders with MAPK pathway activation mutations that have spread to other places in the body and have come back or do not respond to treatment. Selumetinib sulfate may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

Detailed Description:

PRIMARY OBJECTIVE:

I. To determine the objective response rate (ORR; complete response + partial response) in pediatric patients treated with selumetinib (AZD6244 hydrogen sulfate) with advanced solid tumors (including central nervous system [CNS] tumors), non-Hodgkin lymphomas or histiocytic disorders that harbor activating genetic alterations in the MAPK pathway.

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To estimate the progression free survival in pediatric patients treated with selumetinib (AZD6244 hydrogen sulfate) with advanced solid tumors (including CNS tumors), non-Hodgkin lymphomas or histiocytic disorders that harbor MAPK activation mutations.

II. To obtain additional information about the tolerability of selumetinib (AZD6244 hydrogen sulfate) in children with relapsed or refractory cancer.

EXPLORATORY OBJECTIVES:

I. To evaluate other biomarkers as predictors of response to selumetinib (AZD6244 hydrogen sulfate) and specifically, whether tumors that harbor different mutations or fusions will demonstrate differential response to selumetinib (AZD6244 hydrogen sulfate) treatment.

II. To explore approaches to profiling changes in tumor genomics over time through evaluation of circulating tumor deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA).

OUTLINE:

Patients receive selumetinib sulfate orally (PO) twice daily (BID) on days 1-28. Cycles repeat every 28 days for up to 2 years in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up periodically.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Response rate [ Time Frame: From enrollment to the end of treatment, up to 2 years ]
    A responder is defined as a patient who achieves a best response of partial response (PR) or complete response (CR) on the study. Response rates will be calculated as the percent of evaluable patients who are responders, and confidence intervals will be constructed using the Wilson score interval method.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of participants with treatment-related adverse events as accessed by Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) version (v) 5.0 [ Time Frame: From enrollment to the end of treatment, up to 2 years ]
    A patient will be counted only once for a given toxicity for the worst grade of that toxicity reported for that patient.

  2. Progression free survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: From the initiation of protocol treatment to the occurrence of any of the following events: disease progression or disease recurrence or death from any cause, assessed up to 5 years ]
    Progression free survival will be defined as time from the initiation of protocol treatment to the occurrence of any of the following events: disease progression or disease recurrence or death from any cause. PFS along with the confidence intervals will be estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method.


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Biomarker analysis as predictors of response to selumetinib [ Time Frame: Up to 4.5 years ]
    A descriptive analysis will be performed and will be summarized with simple summary statistics. All of these analyses will be descriptive in nature.

  2. Changes in tumor genomic profile [ Time Frame: Up to 4.5 years ]
    A descriptive analysis will be performed and will be summarized with simple summary statistics. All of these analyses will be descriptive in nature.
