  Purpose

This is a Phase II, multicenter, open-label, single arm, 2-stage study of tazemetostat 800 mg BID administered orally in continuous 28 day cycles. Screening of subjects to determine eligibility for the study will be performed within 21 days of the first planned dose of tazemetostat. Eligible subjects will be enrolled into one of fivecohorts based on tumor type:

  • Cohort 1 (Closed for enrollment): MRT, RTK, ATRT, or selected tumors with rhabdoid features, including small cell carcinoma of the ovary hypercalcemic type [SCCOHT], also known as malignant rhaboid tumor of the ovary [MRTO]
  • Cohort 2 (Closed for enrollment): Relapsed or refractory synovial sarcoma with SS18-SSX rearrangement
  • Cohort 3 (Closed for enrollment): Other INI1 negative tumors or any solid tumor with an EZH2 gain of function (GOF) mutation, including: epithelioid malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor (EMPNST), extraskeletal myxoid chondrosarcoma (EMC), myoepithelial carcinoma, other INI1-negative malignant tumors with Sponsor approval (e.g., dedifferentiated chordoma) any solid tumor with an EZH2 GOF mutation including but not limited to Ewing's sarcoma and melanoma
  • Cohort 4 (Closed for enrollment): Renal medullary carcinoma (RMC)
  • Cohort 5 (Closed for enrollment): Epithelioid sarcoma (ES)
  • Cohort 6 (Opened for enrollment): Epithelioid sarcoma (ES) undergoing mandatory tumor biopsy
  • Cohort 7 (Opened for enrollment): Poorly differentiated chordoma (or other chordoma with Sponsor approval)

Treatment with tazemetostat will continue until disease progression, unacceptable toxicity or withdrawal of consent, or termination of the study. Response assessment will be evaluated after 8 weeks of treatment and then every 8 weeks thereafter while on study.
