Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety profile of Nivolumab given pre- and post-nephrectomy in metastatic renal cell carcinoma. Safety will be assessed by a summary of adverse events and by the proportion of patients experiencing all grades of toxicity. [ Time Frame: Until disease progression, measured every 2 weeks, on average for 11 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Response rate [ Time Frame: Until progression or withdrawal of consent, measured every 8 weeks in first year and then every 12 weeks there after, on average for 11 months ]

Other Outcome Measures:
  • Progression free survival [ Time Frame: Until progression or withdrawal of consent, measured every 8 weeks in first year and then every 12 weeks there after, on average for 11 months ]
  • Overall survival [ Time Frame: Until death or withdrawal of consent, measured every 12 weeks, on average for 12 months ]
  • Changes in biomarkers [ Time Frame: Until progression or withdrawal of consent, at cycle 1, pre-nephrectomy and at disease progression, on average for 11 months ]
    Changes in biomarkers correlated with both response to treatment and toxicity. This study aims to investigate the relation of ITH and the immune response to RCC in the context of PD-1 checkpoint-blockade, and to correlate putative immune biomarkers with clinical response or resistance in the pre-operative clinical trial 'window' model that has already been established.

Detailed Description:

Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is diagnosed in around 8500 patients annually in the UK. Approximately one third of these patients present with metastatic disease where the RCC has spread to other organs. The mainstay of treatment for these patients is systemic drug therapy, but surgery to remove the primary kidney tumour (i.e. nephrectomy) may also provide clinical benefit.

There is no standard preoperative systemic drug therapy in metastatic RCC, but such preoperative therapy is used widely in the treatment of other cancer types. This approach has several potential advantages including shrinking the tumour to help improve surgical outcomes and to aid identification of appropriate postoperative Drug therapy.

Over the last 10 years several agents have demonstrated promising activity in RCC including the monoclonal antibody therapy nivolumab. This novel immunotherapy works by blocking an immune cell receptor (programmed death1(PD1)) which the cancer can otherwise utilise to evade an individuals immune system attack. This study will investigate the use of nivolumab therapy as a preoperative treatment in patients with metastatic RCC for whom nephrectomy is planned. A total of 19 patients will be recruited at the Royal Marsden Hospital Patients will be treated with nivolumab for 8 weeks prior to surgery, after which nivolumab therapy will restart and continue until such time that the patient is not receiving an overall clinical benefit.

The primary aim of the study will be to assess the safety of such a strategy, with further aims to assess clinical effectiveness. This is also a unique opportunity to further investigate the way in which nivolumab works and to identify predictors of treatment response. To achieve this patients will be asked to provide biopsy samples of their RCC pre & post nivolumab treatment and their nephrectomy tissue for research use, alongside additional blood & urine samples.

Inhaled corticosteroids and adrenal replacement steroid doses of > 10 mg daily prednisone equivalent are permitted in the absence of active autoimmune disease.

  2. Need for nephrectomy to relieve symptoms relating to the primary tumour or for emergency nephrectomy
  3. History of severe hypersensitivity reaction to other monoclonal antibodies
  4. Prior malignancy, active within the last 3 years, except for locally curable cancers which have been apparently cured
  5. Known HIV or AIDS-related illness
  6. Any active, known or suspected autoimmune disease or any condition requiring systemic treatment with either corticosteroids or other immunosuppressive medications within 14 days of study drug administration. Inhaled or topical steroids and physiological replacement doses >10mg daily prednisolone equivalent are permitted in the absence of active autoimmune disease.
  7. Active infection requiring therapy
  8. Positive tests for Hepatitis B surface antigen or Hepatitis C ribonucleic acid (RNA) indicating acute or chronic infection

All female patients with childbearing potential must have a negative pregnancy test (serum or urine) prior to enrolment/nivolumab treatment. Male patients must be surgically sterile or must agree to use effective contraception during the period of therapy and for 31 weeks after the last dose of study drug. Women who are not of childbearing potential and azoospermic men do not require contraception.
