Chordoma clinical trials at UCSF

2 research studies open to eligible people

Chordoma is a rare type of cancer that grows in your bones. UCSF is conducting a study on two drugs, nivolumab and ipilimumab, that could help treat it. Another trial at UCSF is testing tiragolumab and atezolizumab on tumors that are hard to treat.

Showing trials for
  • Nivolumab and Ipilimumab in Children and Young Adults With INI1-Negative Cancers

    open to eligible people ages 6 months to 40 years

    This clinical trial is studying two immunotherapy drugs (nivolumab and ipilimumab) given together as a possible treatment for INI1-negative tumors.

  • Tiragolumab and Atezolizumab for the Treatment of Relapsed or Refractory SMARCB1 or SMARCA4 Deficient Tumors

    open to eligible people ages 12 months and up

    This phase I/II trial studies how well tiragolumab and atezolizumab works when given to children and adults with SMARCB1 or SMARCA4 deficient tumors that that has either come back (relapsed) or does not respond to therapy (refractory). SMARCB1 or SMARCA4 deficiency means that tumor cells are missing the SMARCB1 and SMARCA4 genes, seen with some aggressive cancers that are typically hard to treat. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as tiragolumab and atezolizumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread.
