Study Summary

This trial is testing a combination of three drugs to see if they are effective in treating tumors that are lacking in one of two proteins.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for young patients aged 6 months to 21 years with specific tumors lacking INI1 or SMARCA4 proteins. Eligible participants must have completed prior treatments, be in good health otherwise, and agree to contraception if applicable. Those with uncontrolled illnesses, organ transplants, pregnancy, certain infections like HIV or hepatitis B/C, autoimmune diseases requiring treatment within the past year, or a history of allergic reactions to similar compounds are excluded.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study tests a combination of three drugs: Tazemetostat (TAZVERIK), Nivolumab (OPDIVO), and Ipilimumab (YERVOY) as potential treatments for malignant rhabdoid tumor and other related conditions that lack INI1/SMARCA4 proteins. The effectiveness of this drug trio will be evaluated on different patient groups based on their disease status.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Potential side effects may include immune-related issues due to Nivolumab and Ipilimumab's action on the immune system; these can range from inflammation in various organs to skin reactions. Tazemetostat could cause blood disorders or fatigue. Specific side effects depend on individual responses.

Experimental Treatment
Group I: Phase I b: DOSE ESCALATION (STRATUM B, NON-ATRT, NON-CNS)Experimental Treatment3 Interventions
Part 1 will be two concurrent "rolling six" phase 1 studies starting at a different tazemetostat dose for each stratum), with one dose escalation and one dose de-escalation planned. All subjects will receive the same nivolumab and ipilimumab doses and dosing schedule
