IPI Biochemotherapy for Chemonaive Patients With Metastatic Melanoma
The goal of the Phase I part of this clinical research study is to find the highest tolerable dose of the drug Yervoy (ipilimumab) that can be given with the drugs Temodar (temozolomide), Intron-A (interferon alfa-2b), Proleukin (aldesleukin, IL-2), and Platinol (cisplatin) to patients with metastatic melanoma. The safety of this combination will also be studied in Phase I. The goal of Phase II is to learn if this combination can help to control metastatic melanoma.
Ipilimumab, interferon alfa-2b, and aldesleukin are designed to block the activity of cells that decrease the immune system's ability to fight cancer.
Temozolomide is designed to stop cancer cells from making new DNA (the genetic material of cells). This may stop the cancer cells from dividing into new cells.
Cisplatin is designed to poison the cancer cells, which may cause them to die.

- Tumor Response by Participant using immune-related response criteria (irRC) [ Time Frame: End of 2 cycles, 24 weeks ]Tumor assessments using irRC modified World Health Organizations (WHO) criteria: Immune-Related Complete Response (irCR): Complete disappearance of all tumor lesions. Immune-Related Partial Response (irPR): decrease of 50% or greater. Immune-Related Progressive Disease (irPD): At least 25% increase in sum of products of all index lesions over baseline sum of products of diameters (SPD) calculated for index lesions. Assessment include photographic measurement of skin lesions, computed tomography scans and/or magnetic resonance imaging tumor assessments until documented tumor progression.
