Targeted Therapy Directed by Genetic Testing in Treating Patients with Advanced Refractory Solid Tumors, Lymphomas, or Multiple Myeloma (The MATCH Screening Trial)

This phase II MATCH trial studies how well treatment that is directed by genetic testing works in patients with solid tumors or lymphomas that have progressed following at least one line of standard treatment or for which no agreed upon treatment approach exists. Genetic tests look at the unique genetic material (genes) of patients' tumor cells. Patients with genetic abnormalities (such as mutations, amplifications, or translocations) may benefit more from treatment which targets their tumor's particular genetic abnormality. Identifying these genetic abnormalities first may help doctors plan better treatment for patients with solid tumors, lymphomas, or multiple myeloma.

ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA FOR SCREENING BIOPSY (STEP 0)

Women of childbearing potential must have a negative serum pregnancy test within 2 weeks prior to registration; patients that are pregnant or breast feeding are excluded; a female of childbearing potential is any woman, regardless of sexual orientation or whether they have undergone tubal ligation, who meets the following criteria: * Has not undergone a hysterectomy or bilateral oophorectomy; or * Has not been naturally postmenopausal for at least 24 consecutive months (i.e., has had menses at any time in the preceding 24 consecutive months)

Women of childbearing potential and men must agree to use adequate contraception (hormonal or barrier method of birth control; abstinence) prior to study entry, for the duration of study participation, and for 4 months after completion of study; should a woman become pregnant or suspect while she or her partner is participating in this study, she should inform her treating physician immediately

Patients must have histologically documented solid tumors or histologically confirmed diagnosis of lymphoma or multiple myeloma requiring therapy and meet one of the following criteria: * Patients must have progressed following at least one line of standard systemic therapy and there must not be other approval/standard therapy available that has been shown to prolong overall survival (i.e. in a randomized trial against another standard treatment or by comparison to historical controls); patients who cannot receive other standard therapy that has been shown to prolong overall survival due to medical issues will be eligible, if other eligibility criteria are met; if the patient is currently receiving therapy, the clinician must have assessed that the current therapy is no longer benefitting the patient prior to enrolling on MATCH, regardless of whether it is considered standard OR * Patients for whose disease no standard treatment exists that has been shown to prolong overall survival * NOTE: No other prior malignancy is allowed except for the following: adequately treated basal cell or squamous cell skin cancer; in situ cervical cancer; adequately treated stage I or II cancer from which the patient is currently in complete remission; any other cancer from which the patient has been disease-free for 5 years

Patients must have measurable disease

Patients must meet the criteria below and have received results from one of the designated outside laboratories indicating a “rare variant” that is an actionable Mutation of Interest (aMOI) for specific select subprotocols. * The following requirements apply: ** The outside laboratory specifically notified the site that patient may be a potential candidate for MATCH due to a detected “rare variant"; the outside lab reports are NOT sufficient for this purpose *** NOTE: The content and format of these specific notifications for the Outside Assay process will vary depending on the designated outside lab in question, as they are each responsible for their own outreach efforts; it is strongly recommended that the designated outside laboratory be contacted to confirm the format and receipt of this notification prior to registering any patients to Step 0 ** Patients with an applicable “rare variant” must be able to meet the eligibility criteria for the appropriate subprotocols within 4 weeks following notification of treatment assignment *** NOTE: The receipt of this notification (and the start of the associated deadline for Step 1 registration) may occur shortly after Step 0 registration, since these patients will not be submitting tissue for screening purposes; however, for certain “rare variant” arms, submission of archival tissue for central immunohistochemistry (IHC) testing may be required ** Registration to Step 0 must occur after stopping prior systemic anti-cancer therapy; there is no specific duration for which patients must be off treatment prior to registration to Step 0, as long as all eligibility criteria are met ** There is no particular window of time after notification of potential eligibility from an outside lab in which the patient must be registered to Step 0, but treatment slots will be assigned on a first come, first serve basis to those who do register to Step 0, and are not held for those notified of potential eligibility who do not register to Step 0 ** Patients may have received other non-targeted, immunotherapy or targeted treatment between the prior genetic testing at the outside lab and registration to Step 0; the decision to stop such treatment in favor of participation in MATCH, if no further clinical benefit is expected, is per the treating physician's discretion; documentation of a lack of response to the prior treatment is not required in these cases *** NOTE: Other potential aMOIs that would be eligibility criteria for “NON RARE” arms, as determined by the designated laboratories, are not applicable for this process in MATCH *** NOTE: Tumor tissue for the confirmation of “rare variant” by the MATCH assay is to be submitted, preferably from the same time of collection as that evaluated by the designated outside laboratory

Patient must not require the use of full dose coumarin-derivative anticoagulants such as warfarin; low molecular weight heparin is permitted for prophylactic or therapeutic use; factor X inhibitors are permitted * NOTE: Warfarin may not be started while enrolled in the EAY131 study * Stopping the anticoagulation for biopsy should be per site standard operating procedure (SOP)

ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA FOR FIRST TREATMENT (STEP 1)

If patients have been biopsied or submitted archived tumor tissue obtained within the last 6 months for assessment with the MATCH assays, patients may receive non-protocol treatment after biopsy/tissue submission (if clinically indicated) until they receive notification of results however, lack of response must be documented prior to registration to step 1; new non-protocol treatment will NOT be permitted as intervening therapy after registration to Step 0; for patients entering step 0 with assay results from outside laboratories, no systemic treatment is allowed after step 0 registration; the decision to stop the intervening nonprotocol treatment will be left up to the treating physician if patient has an aMOI; waiting periods as described will apply

As MATCH is designed to add additional subprotocols, implement limited expansions of accrual for certain subprotocols, and/or amend existing arm-specific eligibility criteria, some patients entering under the original screening method may be eligible to have their results rerun in MATCHbox, even if they did not match to a treatment initially or did not receive a treatment assignment due to a lack of available assignment slots; patients whose sequence results will be rerun through MATCHbox must also meet the following criteria: * Samples must have been collected within 5 months of the activation of the addendum, as there is an additional month needed to get the patients on trial * Patient has not had treatment within the 5 months that resulted in a PR or better after the performance of the screening assessment * Patient must meet eligibility criteria, including performance status 1 or better and life expectancy of at least 3 months * Patients must meet the eligibility requirements with the following exceptions: ** Patients may have received other non-targeted, immunotherapy or targeted treatment, which could be stopped in favor of returning to MATCH, if no response to the interim treatment has occurred and no further benefit is expected from this interim treatment, per the treating physician's discretion; documentation of a lack of response to the interim treatment is not required in these cases; however, the following restrictions apply: *** Enrollment onto another investigational therapeutic study is not permitted *** Patient cannot be responding to interim treatment, since the benefit of the MATCH treatment is unknown and may deprive patient of an effective treatment if it were given when a patient is responding to another treatment * NOTE: Patients meeting these criteria will NOT be biopsied at this time point; instead, their step 0 results will be re-interrogated to determine if another treatment is available

ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA FOR SECOND SCREENING (STEP 2)
