Blockade in Rare TumorsStatus: open
This clinical trial studies nivolumab and ipilimumab in treating patients with rare tumors. Monoclonal antibodies, such as nivolumab and ipilimumab, may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread.
Treatment for Rare Tumors
I. To evaluate the Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) version (v)1.1 overall response rate (ORR) in subsets of patients with advanced rare cancers treated with ipilimumab plus nivolumab combination immunotherapy.
I. To evaluate toxicities in each cohort. II. To estimate overall survival (OS), progression-free survival (PFS), clinical benefit rate; and to estimate immune-related ORR (irORR), and immune-related PFS (irPFS) by unidimensional immune-related response criteria.
I. To evaluate the association of tumor mutational burden measured by tissue sequencing with durable response (complete response [CR] or partial response [PR] lasting 24 weeks or more).
II. To describe the mutational load and targeted sequencing of well-known oncogenes and changes in these markers of patients at up to three time points (baseline, cycle 2, and progression), and across strata to describe associations with survival outcomes.
III. To describe the presence of germline mutations, and across strata to evaluate association with outcome.
IV. Within strata, to describe patient risk category as defined by the biodesix protein signature and change over time at up to three time points (baseline, cycle 2, progression), and across strata to evaluate associations with outcomes.
V. Within strata, to evaluate the association of PD-L1 expression (positive versus negative) with response and survival outcomes, and within strata, to characterize baseline PD-L1 prevalence.
VI. To collect specimens for banking for use in future correlative biomarker research studies.
Patients receive nivolumab intravenously (IV) over 30 minutes on days 1, 15, and 29 and ipilimumab IV over 60 minutes on day 1. Courses repeat every 42 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up for 10 years from registration.
