Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Abramson Cancer Center of the University of Pennsylvania
  Purpose
The primary objective is to determine the maximum tolerated hypofractionated radiotherapy dose (MTD) to a solitary metastatic focus ('index lesion') when followed by ipilimumab, in metastatic melanoma patients without brain involvement The secondary objectives are to determine late toxicity, immune-related clinical responses and immune pharmacodynamic changes after hypofractionated radiotherapy followed by ipilimumab

Condition Intervention Phase
Metastatic Melanoma Drug: Ipilimumab Radiation: Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy Phase 1 Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria

  • Patient > 18 years old
  • Histologically confirmed diagnosis of melanoma
  • Previously treated or previously untreated metastatic melanoma by AJCC staging criteria
  • Presence of an index lesion > 1 cm amenable to hypofractionated radiotherapy and at least one other additional lesion that can be followed for response using RECIST criteria
  • ECOG Performance status 0 or 1
  • Signed informed consent document
  • Ability to tolerate stereotactic body radiation therapy (e.g. lie flat and hold position for treatment)

Exclusion Criteria

  • Prior systemic therapy within 14 days of study enrollment. Patients must be adequately recovered from prior systemic therapy side effects as deemed by the PI.
  • Clinical contraindication to stereotactic body radiotherapy (e.g. active systemic sclerosis, active inflammatory bowel disease if bowel is within target field, etc)
  • Presence or history of central nervous system metastasis (including brain)
  • Long-term use of systemic corticosteroids
  • Prior RT that precludes the delivery of hypofractionated radiotherapy
