Title NCI-COG Pediatric Match(MOLECULAR ANALYSIS FOR THERAPY CHOICE)-Phase 2 Subprotocol of Palbociclib in Patients with Tumors Harboring Activating Alterations in Cell Cycle Genes

You are being asked to take part in this research study because your tumor results from the NCI-COG Pediatric MATCH screening protocol make you a candidate to receive the investigational drug (or study drug ) palbociclib that we are testing in this study
We are using palbociclib in this study because it has been shown to block the growth of cancer cells with mutations in an important biological pathway in test tubes and in animals. You are eligible for this study because your tumor was found to have a mutation in this pathway. Palbociclib is considered a study drug in the treatment of your tumor or type of cancer. Although palbociclib has been given to a small number of adults and children, we do not know if it will work against the type of tumor you have

Treatment Palbociclib will be given by mouth once daily for 21 days, followed by a rest period of 7 days. This entire 4 week period is called a cycle. You may continue to receive palbociclib for up to 2 years unless you develop serious side effects or your tumor worsens

Description Phase 2 Pediatric MATCH sub protocol of Palbociclib for activating alterations in cell cycle genes
