A Phase 1 Study of the EZH2 Inhibitor Tazemetostat in Pediatric Subjects With Relapsed or Refractory INI1-Negative Tumors or Synovial Sarcoma


Brief description of study

This is a Phase I, open-label, dose escalation and dose expansion study with a BID oral dose of tazemetostat. Subjects will be screened for eligibility within 14 days of the planned first dose of tazemetostat. A treatment cycle will be 28 days. Response assessment will be evaluated after 8 weeks of treatment and subsequently every 8 weeks while on study.

The study has two parts: Dose Escalation and Dose Expansion.

Dose escalation for subjects with the following relapsed/refractory malignancies:

  • Rhabdoid tumors:
  • Atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumor (ATRT)
  • Malignant rhabdoid tumor (MRT)
  • Rhabdoid tumor of kidney (RTK)
  • Selected tumors with rhabdoid features
  • INI1-negative tumors:
  • Epithelioid sarcoma
  • Epithelioid malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor
  • Extraskeletal myxoid chondrosarcoma
  • Myoepithelial carcinoma
  • Renal medullary carcinoma
  • Other INI1-negative malignant tumors (e.g., dedifferentiated chordoma) (with Sponsor approval)
  • Synovial Sarcoma with a SS18-SSX rearrangement

Dose Expansion at the MTD or the RP2D

  • Cohort 1 - ATRT
  • Cohort 2 - MRT/RTK/selected tumors with rhabdoid features
  • Cohort 3 - INI-negative tumors:
  • Epithelioid sarcoma
  • Epithelioid malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor
  • Extraskeletal myxoid chondrosarcoma
  • Myoepithelial carcinoma
  • Renal medullary carcinoma
  • Chordoma (poorly differentiated or de-differentiated)
  • Other INI1-negative malignant tumors (e.g., dedifferentiated chordoma) with Sponsor approval
  • Cohort 4 - Tumor types eligible for Cohorts 1 through 3 or synovial sarcoma with SS18-SSX rearrangement
