Who can participate?

Inclusion Criteria:

    • For Cohort A, participants must have histologically confirmed non-CNS primary solid tumors or lymphoma based upon biopsy or surgery at relapse/progression. Patients without biopsy or surgery at relapse/progression and with tissue only available from initial diagnosis may still be considered after discussion with the overall Primary Investigator.
    • For Cohort B, participants must have histologically confirmed solid tumors, lymphoma, or primary CNS tumor based upon biopsy or surgery at relapse/progression as well as documentation of one of the following confirmed tumor molecular features obtained in a laboratory certified to return results for clinical purposes. Patients without biopsy or surgery at relapse/progression and with tissue only available from initial diagnosis may still be considered after discussion with the overall Primary Investigator.
    • MYCN amplification or high copy number gain
    • MYC amplification or high copy number gain
    • Translocation involving MYC or MYCN
    • Translocation involving BRD4 or BRD3
  • Patients must have fully recovered from the acute toxic effects of all prior anti-cancer therapy except organ function as noted in Section 3.1.5. Patients must meet the following minimum washout periods prior to enrollment:
  • Myelosuppressive chemotherapy: At least 14 days after the last dose of myelosuppressive chemotherapy (42 days for nitrosourea or mitomycin C).

    • At least 42 days must have elapsed if other substantial BM radiation;
    • At least 42 days must have passed since last MIBG or other radionuclide therapy.
  • Small molecule biologic therapy: At least 7 days following the last dose of a small molecule biologic agent. For agents with known adverse events occurring beyond 7 days, this duration must be extended beyond the time in which adverse events are known to occur. If extended duration is required, this must be discussed with and approved by the overall PI.
  • Monoclonal antibody: At least 28 days must have elapsed after the last dose of therapeutic monoclonal antibody.
  • Myeloid growth factors: At least 14 days following the last dose of long-acting growth factor (e.g. Neulasta) or 7 days following short-acting growth factor.
  • Autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplant and stem cell boost: Patients must be at least 60 days from day 0 of an autologous stem cell transplant or autologous stem cell boost.
  • Cellular therapies (including CAR-T cells) and other non-cellular, non-antibody immunotherapies (e.g., vaccines): At least 42 days must have elapsed after last dose.
  • Major Surgery: At least 2 weeks from prior major surgical procedure. Note: Major surgical procedure will be considered all surgical procedures aside from the following: Biopsy; central line placement/removal; bone marrow aspirate/biopsy; lumbar puncture; dental procedures; gastrostomy tube placement; and VP shunt placement/revision.
  • BET inhibitors: Patients must not have received prior treatment with a BET inhibitor.
  • Participants must have normal organ function as defined below.
  • Bone Marrow Function
  • For Patients without Documented Bone Marrow Involvement by Disease:
    • Hemoglobin > 8 g/dL (may be transfused)
    • Absolute neutrophil count ≥ 1,000 /uL
    • Platelets ≥ 100,000 /uL and transfusion independent, defined as not receiving a platelet transfusion for at least 5 days prior to CBC documenting eligibility.
  • For Patients with Documented Bone Marrow Involvement by Disease:
    • Hemoglobin > 8 g/dL (may be transfused)
    • Absolute neutrophil count ≥ 750 /uL
    • Platelets ≥ 75,000 /uL and transfusion independent, defined as not receiving a platelet transfusion for at least 5 days prior to CBC documenting eligibility.
  • Hepatic Function:
    • Total bilirubin ≤ 1.5 x upper limit of normal for age (patients with known Gilbert's may be considered after discussion with overall PI and if direct bilirubin is at or below the upper limit of normal for age)
    • ALT (SGPT) ≤ 3 x upper limit of normal (135 U/L) For the purpose of this study, the ULN for ALT is 45 U/L
    • Serum albumin > 2 g/dL
  • Adequate Pancreatic Function:
    • Lipase < upper limit of normal
  • Adequate GI Function:
    • Diarrhea < grade 1 by CTCAE version 5
  • Coagulation Factors:
    • International Normalized Ratio (INR) < 1.5
    • Partial thromboplastin time (PTT) < 1.5 times upper limit of normal
  • For patients having labs drawn via heparinized catheters, it is important to request heparin-absorbed values.

    • QTc < 480 msec

  • Patients with primary or metastatic CNS tumors, except:
    • Patients with primary CNS tumor meeting definition for Cohort B;

    • Other investigational agents being administered under an IND.
  • Pregnant participants will not be entered on this study given that the effects of BMS-986158 on the developing human fetus are unknown. Female participants of childbearing potential must have a documented negative pregnancy exam within 24 hours prior to dosing.
  • Breastfeeding mothers are not eligible, because there is an unknown risk for adverse events in nursing infants secondary to treatment of the mother with BMS-986158.
  • History of allergic reactions attributed to compounds of similar chemical or biologic composition to BMS-986158.
  • Uncontrolled intercurrent illness including, but not limited to, ongoing or uncontrolled infection, symptomatic congestive heart failure, unstable angina pectoris, cardiac arrhythmia, or psychiatric illness/social situations that would limit compliance with study requirements.
