The researchers are asking patients with NF2 related tumors to be in the study, because their hearing has decreased and/or their NF2 related tumor has started to grow.
The goals of this study are:
- Determine if selumetinib will stop NF2 related tumors from growing
- Measure the changes in hearing after receiving selumetinib for 6 months.
- Determine if selumetinib improves how participants feel (physically and emotionally) and how participants can perform daily activities.
- Examine tumor tissue, if available, in a laboratory to see if NF2 related tumors have targets of selumetinib.
This is a Phase 2 trial to assess the hearing response rate and radiographic response of VS in children and young adults with NF2 who are treated with selumetinib. Dosing will be based on age: For patients with NF2 who are 3 to < 18 years of age, dosing will be based on BSA. Dosing is based on BSA calculated at the beginning of each course. For patients with NF2 who are ≥ 18 to 45 years of age, dosing will be the standard adult dose of 75 mg BID.
Selumetinib is taken orally twice a day continuously. One course is equivalent to 28 days. Therapy may continue for up to two years (26 courses) in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
There will be two treatment strata. Stratum 1 is for those patients who have a target vestibular schwannoma which is causing hearing loss. Stratum 2 will be reserved for patients who exhibit growth of a tumor(s) besides vestibular schwannoma and are therefore not eligible for stratum 1.

To determine the frequency of central nervous system comorbidities in children with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1).
A group of disorders characterized by an autosomal dominant pattern of inheritance with high rates of spontaneous mutation and multiple neurofibromas or neurilemmomas. NEUROFIBROMATOSIS 1 (generalized neurofibromatosis) accounts for approximately 95% of cases, although multiple additional subtypes (e.g., NEUROFIBROMATOSIS 2, neurofibromatosis 3, etc.) have been described. (From Neurochirurgie 1998 Nov;44(4):267-72)
Tumor suppressor genes located on the long arm of human chromosome 22. Mutation or loss of these genes causes NEUROFIBROMATOSIS 2.
Tumor suppressor genes located on the long arm of human chromosome 17 in the region 17q11.2. Mutation of these genes is thought to cause NEUROFIBROMATOSIS 1, Watson syndrome, and LEOPARD syndrome.
A protein found most abundantly in the nervous system. Defects or deficiencies in this protein are associated with NEUROFIBROMATOSIS 1, Watson syndrome, and LEOPARD syndrome. Mutations in the gene (GENE, NEUROFIBROMATOSIS 1) affect two known functions: regulation of ras-GTPase and tumor suppression.
An autosomal dominant disorder characterized by a high incidence of bilateral acoustic neuromas as well as schwannomas (NEURILEMMOMA) of other cranial and peripheral nerves, and other benign intracranial tumors including meningiomas, ependymomas, spinal neurofibromas, and gliomas. The disease has been linked to mutations of the NF2 gene (GENES, NEUROFIBROMATOSIS 2) on chromosome 22 (22q12) and usually presents clinically in the first or second decade of life.
