Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. (Part A only) Safety of the combination of BMS-813160 plus nivolumab plus gemcitabine plus nab-paclitaxel as measured by frequency, type, and severity of adverse events [ Time Frame: 100 days after completion of treatment (approximately 7.5 months) ]
    The descriptions and grading scales found in the revised NCI Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) version 5.0 will be utilized for all toxicity reporting.

  2. (Part B only) Objective response rate [ Time Frame: Through 3 years after surgical resection ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. (Part B only) Percentage of patients who disease becomes resectable after treatment [ Time Frame: Completion of treatment (approximately 4 months) ]
  2. (Part B only) Progression-free survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: Through 3 years after surgical resection ]
    • PFS is defined as the days from the date of treatment and death or progression, which occurs first. Patients alive without progression or lost to follow-up are censored at the last follow-up.
    • At least a 20% increase in the sum of the diameters of target lesions, taking as reference the smallest sum on study (this includes the baseline sum if that is the smallest on study). In addition to the relative increase of 20%, the sum must also demonstrate an absolute increase of at least 5 mm. (Note: the appearance of one or more new lesions is also considered progressions).

  3. (Part B only) Overall survival (OS) [ Time Frame: Through 3 years after surgical resection ]
    OS is defined as days from date of treatment to date of death within 3 years after surgical resection. Patients alive or lost to follow-up are censored at the last treatment on study or 3 years after surgical resection, regardless of subsequent treatment received.

Should a woman become pregnant or suspect she is pregnant while participating in this study, she must inform her treating physician immediately.
  • Able to understand and willing to sign an IRB approved written informed consent document.
  • All toxicities attributed to prior anti-cancer therapy other than alopecia and fatigue must have resolved to Grade 1 (National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events [NCI CTCAE] v5.0) or baseline before administration of study treatment. Participants with toxicities attributed to prior anti-cancer therapy that are not expected to resolve and result in long lasting sequelae, such as neuropathy after platinum-based therapy, are permitted to enroll.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Prior exposure to chemotherapy or radiation for the disease to be treated on this trial not allowed.
  • Previous malignancies (except non-melanoma skin cancers, and in situ bladder, gastric, colorectal, endometrial, cervical/dysplasia, melanoma, or breast cancers) unless a complete remission was achieved at least 2 years prior to study entry AND no additional therapy is required during the study period.
