Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Presence or absence of a dose limiting toxicity (DLT) of ALT-803 in combination with Nivolumab [ Time Frame: Cycles 1-4: Weeks 1-6 of each cycle ]
    A continual reassessment method (CRM) design will be used to identify the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) for Phase Ib patients

  2. Response Rate [ Time Frame: While on study, at the end of each 6 week cycle; if off study, every 3 months ]

    The phase II portion of the study looks to define the response rate (using immune-related RECIST) of ALT-803 added to nivolumab in patients with advanced and unresectable non-small cell lung cancer.

    Response rate will be defined by the test overall response, which is the best response recorded from the start of the treatment until disease progression/recurrence (taking as reference for progressive disease, the smallest measurements recorded since the treatment started). The subject's best response assignment will depend on the achievement of both measurement and confirmation criteria.



Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Changes in Cmax levels in Phase Ib patients [ Time Frame: Pre-dose: Day 1; Post dose: Day 1 at 30 minutes, 2 hours, 6 hours and 24 hours ]
  2. Changes in AUC levels in Phase Ib patients [ Time Frame: Pre-dose: Day 1; Post dose: Day 1 at 30 minutes, 2 hours, 6 hours and 24 hours ]
  3. Change in frequency of T cells resulting from ALT-803 administration [ Time Frame: Cycle 1 Week 1 Day 1 (C1W1D1); C1W1D4, C1W3D1, C2W1D1, C2W1D1, C2W1D4, C3W1D1, C5W5D1, End of Study ]
    Changes will be determined and reported as the absolute increase in T Cells and variance in change across each dose level.

  4. Change in frequency of NK cells resulting from ALT-803 administration [ Time Frame: Cycle 1 Week 1 Day 1 (C1W1D1); C1W1D4, C1W3D1, C2W1D1, C2W1D1, C2W1D4, C3W1D1, C5W5D1, End of Study ]
    Changes will be determined and reported as the absolute increase in T Cells and variance in change across each dose level.

  5. Change in plasma cytokine concentration of pro-inflammatory and immunosuppressive cytokines [ Time Frame: Cycle 1 Week 1 Day 1 (C1W1D1), C1W1D4, C1W2D1, C1W3D1, C2W1D1, C2W1D4, C3W1D1, C5W5D1, End of study ]
  6. Level of anti-ALT-803 antibodies in blood samples [ Time Frame: Cycle 1 Week 1 Day 1 (C1W1D1), C1W2D1, C1W3D1, C1W5D1, C2W3D1, C3W2D1, C4W1D1 ]
    For analysis of clinical samples, anti-IL-15 antibody serve as reference standard and serum from ALT-803 immunized mice serve as a positive control. the level of anti-ALT-803 antibodies in patient samples is determined based on the anti-IL-15 antibody standard curve.

  7. Progression free survival [ Time Frame: From start of treatment to time of documented progreession or date of death, whichever occurs first, assessed up to 3 years ]
  8. Overall Survival [ Time Frame: From start of treatment to time of documented date of death assessed up to 3 years ]
  9. Duration of Response [ Time Frame: From the time measurement criteria or met for CR or PR (whichever is first recorded) until the first date that recurrent or progressive disease is objectively documented. ]
