Brief Summary:

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Recommended phase II dose (RP2D) of vorolanib plus pembrolizumab [ Time Frame: Completion of enrollment to Dose Escalation cohorts (estimated to be 13 months) ]
    -The maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is defined as the dose level immediately below the dose level at which 2 patients of a cohort (of 2 to 6 patients) experience dose-limiting toxicity during the first cycle. Dose escalations will proceed for both nivolumab and pembrolizumab until the MTD or highest dose level (level 2), which is defined as RP2D.

  2. Recommended phase II dose (RP2D) of vorolanib plus nivolumab [ Time Frame: Completion of enrollment to Dose Escalation cohorts (estimated to be 13 months) ]
    -The maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is defined as the dose level immediately below the dose level at which 2 patients of a cohort (of 2 to 6 patients) experience dose-limiting toxicity during the first cycle. Dose escalations will proceed for both nivolumab and pembrolizumab until the MTD or highest dose level (level 2), which is defined as RP2D.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety and toxicity of vorolanib plus pembrolizumab as measured by the number and type of adverse events experienced by participant [ Time Frame: 30 days after completion of treatment (estimated to be 7 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. Safety and toxicity of vorolanib plus nivolumab as measured by the number and type of adverse events experienced by participant [ Time Frame: 30 days after completion of treatment (estimated to be 7 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.
