Dabrafenib Combined with Trametinib after Radiation Therapy in Treating Patients with Newly-Diagnosed High-Grade Glioma
Multiple Cancer Types
This phase II trial studies how well the combination of dabrafenib and trametinib works after radiation therapy in children and young adults with high grade glioma who have a genetic change called BRAF V600 mutation. Radiation therapy uses high energy rays to kill tumor cells and reduce the size of tumors. Dabrafenib and trametinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking BRAF and MEK, respectively, which are enzymes that tumor cells need for their growth. Giving dabrafenib with trametinib after radiation therapy may work better than treatments used in the past in patients with newly-diagnosed BRAF V600-mutant high-grade glioma.
Targeted Therapy Directed by Genetic Testing in Treating Patients with Advanced Refractory Solid Tumors, Lymphomas, or Multiple Myeloma (The MATCH Screening Trial)
This phase II MATCH trial studies how well treatment that is directed by genetic testing works in patients with solid tumors or lymphomas that have progressed following at least one line of standard treatment or for which no agreed upon treatment approach exists. Genetic tests look at the unique genetic material (genes) of patients' tumor cells. Patients with genetic abnormalities (such as mutations, amplifications, or translocations) may benefit more from treatment which targets their tumor's particular genetic abnormality. Identifying these genetic abnormalities first may help doctors plan better treatment for patients with solid tumors, lymphomas, or multiple myeloma.
Multiple Cancer Types
This phase II trial studies how well trametinib works in treating patients with juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia that has come back (relapsed) or does not respond to treatment (refractory). Trametinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

Trametinib in Treating Patients with Epithelioid Hemangioendothelioma that is Metastatic, Locally Advanced, or Cannot Be Removed by Surgery
This phase II trial studies how well trametinib works in treating patients with epithelioid hemangioendothelioma that has spread to other places in the body (metastatic), nearby tissue or lymph nodes (locally advanced), or cannot be removed by surgery (unresectable). Trametinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.
