I. To evaluate overall response rate (ORR) with nivolumab in patients with previously treated metastatic squamous cell carcinoma (SCCA) of the anal canal.
I. To evaluate progression-free survival (PFS) of nivolumab in patients with previously treated metastatic SCCA of the anal canal.
II. To evaluate overall survival (OS) in patients with previously treated metastatic SCCA of the anal canal treated with nivolumab.
III. To evaluate the grade 3 and 4 toxicity rate in patients with previously treated metastatic SCCA of the anal canal when treated with nivolumab.
I. To evaluate ORR, PFS, and OS based on expression of programmed cell death 1 ligand 1 (PD-L1), programmed cell death 1 (PD-1), peritumoral cluster of differentiation (CD)8+ tumor infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs), peritumoral CD4+ TILs, and regulatory T cells as analyzed from tumor biopsies in previously treated patients with metastatic SCCA of the anal canal when treated with nivolumab.
II. To evaluate radiographic responses according to relative changes in proportions of anti-human papillomavirus (HPV) specific CD8+ and CD4+ TILs and regulatory T cells in patients with previously treated metastatic SCCA of the anal canal following treatment with nivolumab, analyzed from serial peripheral blood samples.
Patients receive nivolumab intravenously (IV) over approximately 60 minutes once every two weeks. Treatment continues in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up for 100 days and then every 3 months for 2 years.

|Official Title:||A Multi-Institutional Phase 2 Study of Nivolumab in Refractory Metastatic Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Anal Canal|
|Actual Study Start Date :||May 1, 2015|
|Actual Primary Completion Date :||September 1, 2016|
Experimental: Treatment (nivolumab)

Other: Laboratory Biomarker Analysis
Correlative studiesBiological: Nivolumab
- Overall response rate [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ]Responses will be assessed using CT scans or magnetic resonance imaging according to standard RECIST 1.1 criteria in order to assess disease progression.
- Incidence of toxicities graded according to the National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events version 4.0 [ Time Frame: Up to 100 days post-treatment ]The frequency of each serious adverse event will be measured relative to the total number of patients treated. Toxicities will be tabulated by type and grade.
- Overall survival [ Time Frame: From initiation of treatment with nivolumab until death, assessed up to 2 years ]Kaplan-Meier analysis will be performed to estimate the median overall survival with a 90% confidence interval.
- Progression-free survival [ Time Frame: From initiation of treatment with nivolumab until the time of disease progression, assessed up to 2 years ]Kaplan-Meier analysis will be performed to estimate the median progression-free survival with a 90% confidence interval.
- Expression of biomarkers using immunohistochemistry and blood samples [ Time Frame: Up to time of treatment discontinuation ]Descriptive statistics including plots, mean, median and standard deviations will be used to summarize data. For continuous outcomes, t-test and analysis of variance will be used to compare outcome measures across patient characteristics. Pair-wise comparisons will be performed using pre- and post-therapy samples from each patient. The chi-square test or Fisher's exact test will be used to test the association between two categorical variables. Both univariate and multivariate logistic regressions will be performed to model prognostic factors.
