Kidney Cancer Clinical Trial

CBM588 in Combination With Nivolumab and Ipilimumab for the Treatment of Advanced Stage Kidney Cancer

Summary

This phase I trial tests the safety, side effects, best dose, and effectiveness of CBM588 in combination with nivolumab and ipilimumab in treating patients with kidney cancer that may have spread from where it first started to nearby tissue, lymph nodes, or distant parts of the body (advanced). CBM588 is a probiotic that may help improve the effects of immunotherapy. Nivolumab and ipilimumab are monoclonal antibodies that may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. CBM588 in combination with nivolumab and ipilimumab may be safe, tolerable, and/or effective in treating patients with advanced stage kidney cancer.

PRIMARY OBJECTIVE:

I. To evaluate the safety and tolerability of nivolumab/ipilimumab with escalating doses of clostridium butyricum CBM 588 probiotic strain (CBM588) in patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma.

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To evaluate the effect of CBM588 on the clinical efficacy of the nivolumab/ipilimumab.

II. To determine the effect of CBM588 (in combination with nivolumab/ipilimumab) in modulation of the gut microbiome in patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma.

III. To assess the effect of CBM588 on the change of metabolic pathways with the nivolumab/ipilimumab combination in patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma.

IV. To determine the effect of CBM588 on systemic immunodulation.

OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study of CBM588 followed by a dose-expansion study.

Patients receive CBM588 orally (PO) twice daily (BID) on days 1-21, nivolumab intravenously (IV) over 30 minutes and ipilimumab IV over 30 minutes on day 1 of each cycle. Cycles repeat every 21 days for 4 cycles. Patients then receive CBM588 PO BID on days 1-28 and nivolumab IV on day 1. Cycles repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Additionally, patients undergo computed tomography (CT), bone scan and blood sample collection throughout the study. Patients may optionally undergo magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) on study.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up once a year.

White blood cell count ≥ 2500/uL
Platelets ≥ 100,000/uL without transfusion
Hemoglobin ≥ 8 g/dL
Alanine aminotransferase (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), and alkaline phosphatase (ALP) ≤ 3 x upper limit of normal (ULN). ALP ≤ 5 x ULN with documented bone metastases
Total bilirubin ≤ 1.5 x ULN (for subjects with Gilbert's disease ≤ 3 x ULN)

Female subjects of childbearing potential must not be pregnant at screening. Female subjects are considered to be of childbearing potential unless one of the following criteria is met: documented permanent sterilization (hysterectomy, bilateral salpingectomy, or bilateral oophorectomy) or documented postmenopausal status (defined as 12 months of amenorrhea in a woman > 45 years-of-age in the absence of other biological or physiological causes. In addition, females < 55 years-of-age must have a serum follicle stimulating (FSH) level > 40 mIU/mL to confirm menopause).

Active interstitial lung disease (ILD)/pneumonitis or history of ILD/pneumonitis requiring treatment with systemic steroids
