Open-label, Phase 2 Study of Single-agent Erlotinib for Patients With Pediatric Ependymoma Previously Treated With Oral Etoposide in Protocol OSI-774-205
Patients that were assigned to the oral etoposide treatment arm in protocol OSI-774-205 and either progressed while on study or discontinued due to unacceptable toxicity related to etoposide will be allowed to participate in this study to assess the safety profile of single-agent erlotinib in patients with recurrent or refractory pediatric ependymoma.
Stanford is not currently accepting new patients for this trial. You may want to check clinicaltrials.gov to see if other locations are recruiting.
