Melanoma Clinical Trial

Safety of SBRT With Anti-PD1 and Anti-IL-8 for the Treatment of Multiple Metastases in Advanced Solid Tumors

Summary

Nivolumab (and other agents affecting the anti-programmed death-1 [anti-PD-1] pathway) have demonstrated anti-tumor activity in multiple tumor types including non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), melanoma (MEL), renal cell carcinoma (RCC), and other cancers. However, there remains a large proportion of participants who do not achieve durable clinical benefit to nivolumab monotherapy. Combinations of immune-oncology (IO) agents with complimentary mechanisms as well as radiation represent a promising strategy to improve response rates to immunotherapy. In this phase I study, radiation will be used in combination with IO agents nivolumab and anti-IL-8 (BMS-986253) to assess toxicity by organ system. The study will determine the safe doses of radiation by organ site in conjunction with nivolumab and BMS-986253. The study will also provide the opportunity to evaluate changes in the tumor microenvironment induced by the treatment.

Full Description

This is a study of SBRT in combination with nivolumab and BMS-986253, a monoclonal antibody (mAb) against human interleukin-8 (IL-8), conducted in humans with advanced solid tumors. This study will evaluate the safety profile, tolerability and preliminary efficacy of SBRT in combination with BMS-986253 and nivolumab in participants with advanced solid tumors and detectable levels of IL-8 in the serum. The study will be conducted in 2 parts.

Part 1 will evaluate the safety, tolerability of different doses of SBRT in combination with nivolumab (480 mg) and BMS-986253 (2400mg) every 2 weeks (Q2W) in participants with advanced solid tumors and detectable levels of IL-8 in the serum. This phase will begin with a cohort of participants who will receive a 2,400 mg flat dose of BMS-986253 Q2W combined with 480 mg flat dose of nivolumab Q4W along with SBRT (the dose is dependent on the irradiating organ).

Part 2 will assess preliminary efficacy of SBRT in combination with nivolumab and BMS-986253 in participants with advanced/metastatic/unresectable melanoma and RCC who progressed on anti-PD-(L)1 therapy and have detectable levels of IL-8 in the serum.

This study aims to determine that safe doses will be found using ablative doses of SBRT with concurrent IO agents. Additional safety, tolerability and preliminary efficacy information in specific patient population will be gathered. Twenty participants with anti-PD-(L)1 refractory advanced/unresectable/metastatic melanoma and RCC and with serum IL-8 above the lower limit of quantitation (LLOQ) will be enrolled into efficacy phase.

This proposal is intended to incorporate SBRT as a direct therapeutic which is in contrast with other proposals evaluating response at distant sites after isolated metastasis radiation. With this intent, the results of this study will be directly applicable to potential expansion cohorts and ongoing clinical need.

Total bilirubin ≤ 1.5 × ULN (except participants with Gilbert's Syndrome who must have normal direct bilirubin)
Serum creatinine ≤ 1.5 × ULN Patients must have measurable disease, defined as at least one lesion that can be accurately measured in at least one dimension (longest diameter to be recorded for non- nodal lesions and short axis for nodal lesions) as ≥10 mm (≥1 cm) with CT scan, MRI, or calipers by clinical exam
Ability to understand and the willingness to sign a written informed consent document.

Reproductive status

Women of childbearing potential (WOCBP) must have a negative serum or urine pregnancy test (minimum sensitivity 25 IU/L or equivalent units of human chorionic gonadotropin) within 24 hours prior to the start of study treatment.
Women must not be breastfeeding.
WOCBP must agree to follow instructions for method(s) of contraception (Appendix 5) for the duration of study treatment plus 5 half-lives of nivolumab plus 30 days (duration of ovulatory cycle), for a total of 155 days post treatment completion. Local laws and regulations may require use of alternative and/or additional contraception methods.
WOCBP who are continuously not heterosexually active are also exempt from contraceptive requirements, but should still undergo pregnancy testing as described in this section.
Males who are sexually active with WOCBP must agree to follow instructions for method(s) of contraception (Appendix4) during combination treatment with study treatment BMS-986253 and nivolumab, plus 5 half-lives of nivolumab (∼125 days), plus 90 days (duration of sperm turnover), for a total of 215 days post-treatment completion. In addition, male participants must be willing to refrain from sperm donation during this time.

EFFICACY COHORT

Patients with anti-PD1/PDL1 refractory melanoma or RCC.
Patients with 1-4 tumor sites that can be irradiated safely

Subject has been administered prior chemotherapy or immunotherapy at any time, and any with radiation therapy within 4 weeks prior to time of consent or who has not recovered (ie, ≤ Grade 1 or at baseline) from adverse events due to previously administered agent.

Subjects with ≤ Grade 2 neuropathy are an exception to this criterion and may qualify for the study.
