Brief Summary:
This phase I trial studies the best dose and side effect of tazemetostat in treating patients with solid tumors or B-cell lymphomas with liver dysfunction that have spread to other places in the body or cannot be removed by surgery. Tazemetostat may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Incidence of adverse events of tazemetostat in patients with varying degrees of hepatic dysfunction assessed using Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events version 4.0 [ Time Frame: Up to 6 months ]
    Frequency and severity of adverse events will be tabulated using counts and proportions detailing frequently occurring, serious and severe events of interest. Adverse events will be summarized using all adverse events experienced, although a sub-analysis may be conducted including only those adverse events in which the treating physician deems possibly, probably or definitely attributable to study treatment.

  2. Recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D) of tazemetostat in patients with varying degrees of hepatic dysfunction [ Time Frame: Up to 6 months ]
    RP2D will be determined.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Pharmacokinetic (PK) profiles of tazemetostat in patients with varying degrees of hepatic dysfunction [ Time Frame: Up to course 4 day 1 (day 85) ]
    Plasma concentrations will be measured by Q2 Solutions using a validated Liquid chromatography (LC)/mass spectrometry (MS)/MS assay. Molecular and clinical predictors of clinical outcomes will be investigated using logistic regression and Cox proportional hazards models. Potential predictors include clinical predictors and molecular correlates. Descriptive statistics and plotting of data will also be used to better understand potential relationships. Given the small sample size, and exploratory nature of these endpoints, all pharmacodynamic analyses conducted will be considered exploratory. All analyses will be considered exploratory and inference will be performed with appropriate caution.

  2. Antitumor activity of tazemetostat [ Time Frame: Up to 6 months ]
    Molecular and clinical predictors of clinical outcomes will be investigated using logistic regression and Cox proportional hazards models. Potential predictors include clinical predictors and molecular correlates. Descriptive statistics and plotting of data will also be used to better understand potential relationships. All analyses will be considered exploratory and inference will be performed with appropriate caution.

  3. Antitumor activity of tazemetostat in population with tumors with aberrations in EZH2 or SWI/SNF complex pathways [ Time Frame: Up to 6 months ]
    Molecular and clinical predictors of clinical outcomes will be investigated using logistic regression and Cox proportional hazards models. Potential predictors include clinical predictors and molecular correlates. Descriptive statistics and plotting of data will also be used to better understand potential relationships. All analyses will be considered exploratory and inference will be performed with appropriate caution.

  4. Objective confirmed response [ Time Frame: Up to 6 months ]
    Response will be assessed using the Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) criteria 1.1

  5. Duration of response [ Time Frame: Up to 6 months ]
    Response will be assessed using the RECIST criteria 1.1.

  6. Best response [ Time Frame: Up to 6 months ]
    Response will be assessed using the RECIST criteria 1.1.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients must have histologically and/or cytologically confirmed solid tumors or B cell lymphoma that are metastatic or unresectable and for which standard treatment options do not exist; patients with hepatocellular carcinoma are eligible without pathological diagnosis if diagnosed on the basis of blood work and imaging
  • Patients with evaluable disease will be eligible
  • All patients must have completed any prior chemotherapy, targeted therapy and major surgery, >= 28 days before study entry; for daily or weekly chemotherapy without the potential for delayed toxicity, a washout period of 14 days may be acceptable, and questions related to this can be discussed with study principal investigator
  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status =< 2 (Karnofsky >= 60%)
  • Life expectancy of greater than 3 months
  • Able to swallow and retain orally-administered medication and does not have any clinically significant gastrointestinal abnormalities that may alter absorption such as malabsorption syndrome or major resection of the stomach or bowels
  • All prior treatment-related toxicities must be Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) version 4.0 grade =< 1 (except alopecia) at the time of enrollment

  • Creatinine within normal institutional limits OR calculated creatinine clearance >= 60 mL/min/1.73 m^2 (Cockroft-Gault formula) for patients with creatinine levels above institutional normal
  • Patients with abnormal hepatic function will be eligible and will be grouped according to criteria; patients with active hemolysis should be excluded; no distinction should be made between liver dysfunction due to metastases and liver dysfunction due to other causes; this data will be captured in the case report form (CRF); registration laboratory investigations will be used to assign a patient to a hepatic function group; hepatic function tests should be repeated within 24 hours prior to starting initial therapy and may result in patients' group assignment being altered if different to registration test results
  • For women of childbearing potential: agreement to remain abstinent (refrain from heterosexual intercourse) or use contraceptive methods that result in a failure rate of < 1% per year during the treatment period and for 30 days after tazemetostat discontinuation

    • A woman is considered to be of childbearing potential if she is postmenarcheal, has not reached a postmenopausal state (>= 12 continuous months of amenorrhea with no identified cause other than menopause), and has not undergone surgical sterilization (removal of ovaries and/or uterus)
    • Examples of contraceptive methods with a failure rate of < 1% per year include bilateral tubal ligation, male sterilization, established, proper use of hormonal contraceptives that inhibit ovulation, hormone-releasing intrauterine devices, and copper intrauterine devices
    • Female subjects who use hormonal contraceptives should use an additional barrier method of birth control while on study treatment and for 30 days after discontinuation of study treatment
    • The reliability of sexual abstinence should be evaluated in relation to the duration of the clinical study and the preferred and usual lifestyle of the patient; periodic abstinence (e.g., calendar, ovulation, symptothermal, or postovulation methods) and withdrawal are not acceptable methods of contraception
