Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT01489423
First received: December 8, 2011
Last updated: May 16, 2017
Last verified: May 2017
  Purpose

RATIONALE: Studying samples of tissue and blood in the laboratory from patients treated with ipilimumab with or without sargramostim may help doctors learn more about the effects of ipilimumab and sargramostim on cells. It may also help doctors understand how well patients respond to treatment.

PURPOSE: This research trial studies tissue and blood biomarkers in patients with stage III melanoma or stage IV melanoma treated with ipilimumab with or without sargramostim.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Primary brisk lymphocytic infiltrates associated with better outcomes (overall survival, progression-free survival, and clinical response) [ Time Frame: 1 year ]

Enrollment: 270
Actual Study Start Date: April 26, 2013
Study Completion Date: May 26, 2013
Primary Completion Date: May 26, 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

  • To compare the pathology of primary melanomas, melanoma metastases, and post-treatment melanoma metastases in relation to clinical outcomes for patients receiving ipilimumab plus sargramostim (GM-CSF) and patients receiving ipilimumab alone.
  • To determine the effects of the addition of systemic GM-CSF to ipilimumab on effector immune function in patients with metastatic melanoma.
  • To determine the effects of the addition of systemic GM-CSF to ipilimumab on regulatory immune function in patients with metastatic melanoma.
  • To determine the effects of the addition of systemic GM-CSF to ipilimumab on anti-tumor humoral immunity in patients with metastatic melanoma.

OUTLINE: Serum, peripheral blood mononuclear cells, and tumor tissue (from primary tumor and post-treatment biopsies) samples are analyzed for biomarkers predictive of clinical outcomes, immune function, and anti-tumor humoral immunity by IHC, RT-PCR, flow cytometry, ELISPOT assays, and ELISA.
