This is a Phase 2 study of an investigational drug, BIO-11006, for the treatment of lung metastases in pediatric patients with advanced osteosarcoma or Ewing's sarcoma. This study will enroll up to 10 patients aged between 5 and 21 at Nicklaus Children's Hospital in Miami, FL. Patients will receive BIO-11006 in addition to chemotherapy consisting of gemcitabine and docetaxel. This study will test the hypothesis that BIO-11006 will enhance the effect of the gemcitabine and docetaxel chemotherapy to treat lung metastases in osteosarcoma and Ewing's sarcoma.
This is a Phase 2, controlled study of BIO-11006 peptide given in addition to Gemcitabine and Docetaxel (GemTax) in the treatment of patients with advanced osteosarcoma or Ewing's sarcoma with lung metastases. Patients will receive BIO-11006 in addition to GemTax chemotherapy, which is a current institutional treatment option for recurrent Osteosarcoma and Ewings's Sarcoma. The BIO-11006 inhalation solution will be given by mouth inhalation twice daily. BIO-11006 will be given during the first three cycles and then will be stopped. Patients will continue on GemTax for up to 6 additional cycles and will be clinically assessed before every cycle and have standard-of-care imaging assessments after cycle 3, 6 and 9. If the patient shows lung progression (either clinical or on imaging) at any point after cycle 4 has been given, but had shown at least a partial response during the tumor assessment after cycle 3, BIO-11006 may be re-started at the discretion of the investigator and continued for the duration of the GemTax treatment. Subjects will be followed for disease status during routine clinical follow-ups for 9 months post the end of study treatment. The trial will be conducted at a single site.

Drug treatment designed to further diminish the disease toward complete remission following INDUCTION CHEMOTHERAPY. It helps to consolidate the gains during induction chemotherapy and may be followed by MAINTENANCE CHEMOTHERAPY.
Treatment designed to help prevent a relapse of a disease following the successful primary treatments (INDUCTION CHEMOTHERAPY and CONSOLIDATION CHEMOTHERAPY) with a long-term low-dose drug therapy.
Initial drug treatment designed to bring about REMISSION INDUCTION. It is typically a short-term and high-dose drug treatment that is followed by CONSOLIDATION CHEMOTHERAPY and then MAINTENANCE CHEMOTHERAPY.
FEVER accompanied by a significant reduction in NEUTROPHIL count associated with CHEMOTHERAPY.
