    The purpose of this study is to find out if the drugs called Nivolumab and 5-Azacytidine can be given safely in children and young adults with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) which has come back after treatment or has not responded to standard therapy. These drugs are thought to work by turning on genes that limit the growth of cancer cells. The study drugs will be given for 2 courses of chemotherapy duration based on how well the participants will tolerate the study drug and response, each course is 29-36 days long. Treatment for the 2 courses of therapy will last about 2-3 months.

    The purpose of this study is to find the best dose of Palbociclib that can be given safely with chemotherapy in children with solid tumor which has come back or has not responded to the standard therapy. Palbociclib works by targeting proteins that are necessary for cell growth. Palbociclib will be given by mouth on Days 1-14 of a 21-day cycle. It will be given in combination with chemotherapy drugs Irinotecan and Temozolomide.

    We are testing new experimental drugs such as selinexor in the hopes of finding a treatment that may be effective against tumors that have come back or that have not responded to standard therapy. The goals of this study are: To find the highest safe dose of selinexor that can be given without causing severe side effects; To learn what kind of side effects selinexor can cause; To learn more about the pharmacology (how your body handles the drug) of selinexor; To learn more about the biology of selinexor in blood and tumor tissue; To determine whether selinexor is a beneficial treatment for...

    This is a Phase 1 multicenter study of pevonedistat in combination with Temozolomide and Irinotecan in pediatric patients with refractory solid tumors, including CNS tumors and lymphoma. The study treatment is considered experimental because pevonedistat is not approved by the United States (US) Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for treating pediatric patients with refractory solid tumors, including CNS tumors and lymphoma. The purpose of this study is to estimate the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and/or recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D) of pevonedistat administered in combination with...
