Background: Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) is a genetic disease that affects the nerves. Many people with NF1 develop tumors called plexiform neurofibromas (PNs) that grow along nerve cells. These tumors can cause pain and affect eyesight and the ability to move freely.

Objective:

To test the effectiveness of a study drug (Selumetinib) against PNs and other symptoms.

Eligibility:

People aged 18 years or older diagnosed with NF1 and inoperable PNs.

Design:

Participants will undergo screening tests. They will have a physical exam. They will have blood and urine tests and tests of their heart function. They will have imaging scans and an eye exam.

Participants will use a handheld device to complete an e-Diary every day. They will record: the level of pain they are feeling, any drugs they took for the pain, and whether they took the study drug on time. Use of the e-Diary will begin during screening and last to the end of the study.

Participants will take Selumetinib or a placebo (dummy tablet) twice per day in 28-day cycles. They will take the drugs by mouth, at home. After cycle 8, all participants will take Selumetinib.

Participants will come to the clinic on day 1 of cycles 1, 2, 4, and 6 and then once every 6 cycles. They will have additional screening tests during these visits. They will have at least 15 study visits.

Participants may give a blood sample for DNA testing.

Participant partners who become pregnant may be asked to answer questions. They will be asked about the pregnancy, delivery, and the baby s health.
