Title NCI-COG Pediatric MATCH (Molecular Analysis for Therapy Choice) - Phase 2 Subprotocol of JNJ-42756493 (Erdafitinib) in Patients with Tumors Harboring FGFR1/2/3/4 Alterations

This is a Phase 2 study of a drug called JNJ-42756493 (erdafitinib). In a Phase 2 study, the goal is to find out what effects, good and/or bad, a drug has on tumors.
We are using JNJ-42756493 (erdafitinib) in this study because it has been shown to block the growth of cancer cells with changes (mutations) in the FGFR1/2/3/4 genes. These mutations help cancer cells grow in test tubes and in animals. To be eligible for this study tumors need a mutation in one of these genes. JNJ-42756493 (erdafitinib) is considered a study drug , we do not know if it will work against these tumors.
A Phase 1 study of JNJ-42756493 (erdafitinib) has been completed in adults with cancer. In the Phase 1 study, researchers determined the dose of JNJ-42756493 (erdafitinib) can be given without too many side effects. This study will be the first time that JNJ-42756494 (erdafitinib) is given to children. The dose used in this study will be based on the dose used in adults.

Treatment JNJ-42756493 (erdafitinib) will be given by mouth once daily for 28 days, for up to 2 years unless serious side effects or tumor worsens
