Atypical Teratoid Rhabdoid Tumor clinical trials at UCSF
4 in progress, 3 open to new patients

  • A Phase II, Multicenter Study of the EZH2 Inhibitor Tazemetostat in Adult Subjects With INI1-Negative Tumors or Relapsed/Refractory Synovial Sarcoma

    open to eligible people ages 16 years and up

    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.

  • Collecting and Storing Blood and Brain Tumor Tissue Samples From Children With Brain Tumors

    open to eligible people ages up to 18 years

    The purpose of this study is to collect and store brain tissue samples and blood from children with brain cancer that will be tested in the laboratory. Collecting and storing samples of tumor tissue and blood from patients to test in the laboratory may help the study of cancer in the future.

  • Modified Measles Virus (MV-NIS) for Children and Young Adults With Recurrent Medulloblastoma or Recurrent ATRT

    open to eligible people ages 12 months to 39 years

    This is a two arm Phase I study within the Pacific Pediatric Neuro-Oncology Consortium (PNOC). This study will look to determine the safety and recommended phase 2 dose of the modified measles virus (MV-NIS) in children and young adults with recurrent medulloblastoma or atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumor (ATRT).

  • Combination Chemotherapy, Radiation Therapy, and an Autologous Peripheral Blood Stem Cell Transplant in Treating Young Patients With Atypical Teratoid/Rhabdoid Tumor of the Central Nervous System

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This phase III trial is studying giving combination chemotherapy together with 3-dimensional conformal radiation therapy and an autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplant to see how well it works in treating young patients with atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumor of the central nervous system. Giving high-dose chemotherapy before an autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplant stops the growth of cancer cells by stopping them from dividing or killing them. Giving colony-stimulating factors, such as G-CSF, helps stem cells move from the bone marrow to the blood so they can be collected and stored. Chemotherapy or radiation therapy is then given to prepare the bone marrow for the stem cell transplant. The stem cells are then returned to the patient to replace the blood-forming cells that were destroyed by the chemotherapy or radiation therapy.
