ACNS1723: A Phase 2 Study of Dabrafenib (NSC# 763760) with Trametinib (NSC# 763093) after Local Irradiation in Newly-Diagnosed BRAFV600-Mutant High-Grade Glioma (HGG) (IND# 145355)


What is the goal of the study?

This study will investigate if a combination of these two MAPK pathway inhibitors (dabrafenib and trametinib) will improve event-free survival (EFS) in children with newly-diagnosed BRAFV600-mutant HGG. Patients will undergo a maximal safe surgical resection and tumor tissue will be sent for rapid central screening coordinated by the Biopathology Center, including histopathologic review and molecular sequencing to confirm the presence of a BRAFV600 mutation. Eligible patients who consent to this trial will receive standardized local irradiation (target dose of 5459.4 Gy) followed by maintenance cycles of dabrafenib and trametinib. Patients will receive up to 24 cycles of maintenance therapy in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
