Seneca Valley Virus-001 for Neuroblastoma, Rhabdomyosarcoma, or Rare Tumors With Neuroendocrine Features (COG-ADVL0911)
A Phase 1 Dose Escalation Study of Seneca Valley Virus (NTX-010), A Replication-Competent Picornavirus, in Relapsed/Refractory Pediatric Patients With Neuroblastoma, Rhabdomyosarcoma, or Rare Tumors With Neuroendocrine Features
Status Conditions Phase Study ID
Closed Adrenocortical Carcinoma
Gastrointestinal Carcinoid Tumor
Kidney Cancer
Phase I COG-ADVL0911

RATIONALE: Seneca Valley virus-001 may be able to kill certain kinds of tumor cells without damaging normal cells.

PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best dose of Seneca Valley virus-001 in treating young patients with relapsed or refractory neuroblastoma, rhabdomyosarcoma, or rare tumors with neuroendocrine features.
