Kidney Cancer Clinical Trial
Nivolumab + Ipilimumab With Immunostimulatory Embolization for Stage 4 Renal Cell Carcinoma With Unresected Primary
This single center phase 1 trial will study the combination of nivolumab+ipilimumab with embolization in participants with renal cell carcinoma. The study will evaluate the safety of embolotherapy in patients with metastatic RCC receiving nivolumab+ipilimumab. The hypothesis is that the number of serious adverse events will be no greater than the number of serious adverse events for both therapies combined.
Previously untreated subjects with stage 4 RCC and unresected primary tumor or metastasis amenable to embolization will undergo two cycles of combination immune checkpoint inhibition (ICI) therapy, embolization of the target tumor, then resume ICI therapy. Study ends with safety and efficacy assessment at 6 months. Correlative blood and tissue specimens will be obtained.
Metastatic renal cell carcinoma with unresected primary tumor or with metastasis amenable to embolization.
No prior immune checkpoint therapy
Primary tumor or metastasis amenable to percutaneous embolization per review by the treating interventional oncologist
· Patent feeding artery to tumor > 2 mm diameter without macroscopic arteriovenous fistula/shunt
Additional metastatic site > 1 cm assessable for response by RECIST 1.1
Adequate organ function by screening laboratory studies within 30 days of embolization
platelets > 50K, correctable by transfusion
INR < 1.5, correctable by transfusion
creatinine < 2.0
