Melanoma Clinical Trial

Neoadjuvant Ipilimumab/Nivolumab for Patients With Recurrent, High Risk, Resectable Melanoma

Summary

The goal of this clinical trial is to study the impact of Neoadjuvant ipilimumab and nivolumab for melanoma patients that had recurrence during or after adjuvant anti-PD-1 therapy.

Participants will receive 2 cycles of treatment prior to their standard of care surgery. After surgery participants will receive standard of care adjuvant therapy and be followed for response.

For subjects of childbearing potential: Negative pregnancy test or evidence of post-menopausal status or evidence of permanent surgical sterilization. The post-menopausal status will be defined as having been amenorrheic for 12 months without an alternative medical cause. The following age-specific requirements apply:

Subjects < 50 years of age:

Amenorrheic for ≥ 12 months following cessation of exogenous hormonal treatments; and
Luteinizing hormone and follicle-stimulating hormone levels in the post-menopausal range for the institution

Subjects ≥ 50 years of age:

Amenorrheic for ≥ 12 months following cessation of all exogenous hormonal treatments; or
Had radiation-induced menopause with last menses >1 year ago; or
Had chemotherapy-induced menopause with last menses >1 year ago
Subjects of childbearing potential and subjects with a sexual partner of childbearing potential must agree to use a highly effective method of contraception as described in Section 5.3.1.
Subject has adequate archival tissue or agrees to undergo a fresh tissue biopsy if sufficient archival tissue is unavailable.
Recovery to baseline or ≤ Grade 1 CTCAE v5 from toxicities related to any prior treatments, unless AE(s) are clinically nonsignificant and/or stable on supportive therapy per the treating investigator.
Able to provide informed consent and willing to sign an approved consent form that conforms to federal and institutional guidelines.

Exclusion Criteria:

Receiving other investigational agents currently or within 28 days of study treatment.
Prior systemic anti-cancer therapy ≤ 14 days or within five half-lives prior to starting study treatment, whichever is shorter.
Prior radiotherapy 45 days prior to the first dose of study treatment.
Major surgery 4 weeks prior to starting study drug or who have not fully recovered from major surgery.
Active infection requiring the use of systemic antibiotics.
Systemic steroid therapy greater than physiologic equivalent (10mg prednisone/day) or any other form of systemic immunosuppressive therapy within 7 days prior to registration.
Active secondary malignancy, unless the malignancy is not expected to interfere with the evaluation of safety
Known brain metastases or cranial epidural disease.

Current evidence of uncontrolled, significant intercurrent illness including, but not limited to, the following conditions:

--Cardiovascular disorders:

Congestive heart failure New York Heart Association Class III or IV, unstable angina pectoris, serious cardiac arrhythmias.
Stroke (including transient ischemic attack [TIA]), myocardial infarction (MI), or other ischemic events, or thromboembolic event (eg, deep venous thrombosis, pulmonary embolism) within 3 months before the first dose.
QTc prolongation defined as a QTcF > 500 ms.
Known congenital long QT.
Left ventricular ejection fraction < 55%.
Uncontrolled hypertension defined as ≥ 140/90 as assessed from the mean of three consecutive blood pressure measurements taken over 10 minutes.
Any other condition that would, in the Investigator's judgment, contraindicate the subject's participation in the clinical study due to safety concerns or compliance with clinical study procedures (e.g., infection/inflammation, intestinal obstruction, unable to swallow medication, [subjects may not receive the drug through a feeding tube], social/psychological issues, etc.)

HIV infection with a detectable viral load within 6 months of the anticipated start of treatment.

--Note: Subjects on effective antiretroviral therapy with an undetectable viral load within 6 months of the anticipated start of treatment are eligible for this trial.

Active infection including tuberculosis (clinical evaluation that includes clinical history, physical examination, radiographic findings, and TB testing in line with local practice), hepatitis B (positive HBV surface antigen (HBsAg) result), or hepatitis C.

--Note: Subjects with a past or resolved HBV infection (defined as the presence of hepatitis B core antibody [anti-HBc] and absence of HBsAg) are eligible. Subjects positive for hepatitis C (HCV) antibody are eligible only if polymerase chain reaction is negative for HCV RNA.

Medical, psychiatric, cognitive, or other conditions that may compromise the subject's ability to understand the subject information, give informed consent, comply with the study protocol or complete the study.
Known prior severe hypersensitivity to investigational product (IP) or any component in its formulations (NCI CTCAE v5.0 Grade ≥ 3).
Subjects taking prohibited medications as described in Section 6.7.2. A washout period of prohibited medications for a period of at least five half-lives or as clinically indicated should occur before the start of treatment.
