Brief Summary:

The purpose of this study is to explore the safety, tolerability and activity of Nivolumab, a PD-1 inhibitor, in cohorts of patients with autoimmune disease. Two cohorts of patients will be enrolled, based on autoimmune disease type.

Patients will be screened within 28 days prior to the start of dosing. Eligible patients will be enrolled in either of the two cohorts. Patients will receive treatment every two weeks, in an outpatient setting. One cycle is a 28-day period, with Nivolumab given on days 1 and 15 of a 28-day cycle. Subjects will be permitted to continue treatment beyond initial RECIST 1.1.

Detailed Description:

The purpose of this study is to explore the safety, tolerability and activity of Nivolumab, a PD-1 inhibitor, in cohorts of patients with autoimmune disease. Two cohorts of patients will be enrolled, based on autoimmune disease type as outlined below. Entry into cohorts 1 and 2 will start simultaneously and enroll independently.

Cohort 1: Rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, giant cell arteritis/polymyalgia rheumatica, systemic lupus erythematosis Cohort 2: Other autoimmune diseases (ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, multiple sclerosis). Patients must be discussed with PI prior to enrollment.

Patients will be screened within 28 days prior to the start of dosing. Eligible patients will be enrolled in either of the two cohorts. Patients will receive treatment every two weeks, in an outpatient setting. One cycle is a 28-day period, with Nivolumab given on days 1 and 15 of a 28-day cycle. Subjects will be permitted to continue treatment beyond initial RECIST 1.1. For each cohort, all patients will be dosed at 240 mg IV. There will be no dose de-escalation or escalation from this dose level.

Participants will be followed with telephone follow up for two years after removal from protocol therapy or until death, whichever occurs first. Phone calls will be placed every six months and survival follow up obtained. Participants removed from protocol therapy for unacceptable adverse event(s) will be followed until resolution or stabilization of the adverse event, in addition to the follow up for two years after removal from protocol therapy or until death, whichever occurs first.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Nivolumab: Autoimmune Diseases Cohort 1

Arms determined by autoimmune type. First cohort consists of patients with:

Rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, giant cell arteritis/polymyalgia rheumatica, systemic lupus erythematosis

If a patient has more than one autoimmune condition, if all the conditions are within either cohort 1 or 2 above, the patient will be assigned to that cohort. If the patient has conditions from both cohort 1 and 2, the patient will be grouped in cohort 2.

Drug: Nivolumab

Nivolumab will be given as an IV infusion every two weeks, in an outpatient setting. One cycle is a 28-day period, with Nivolumab given on days 1 and 15 of a 28-day cycle.

For each cohort, all patients will be dosed at 240 mg IV. There will be no dose de-escalation or escalation from this dose level.


Experimental: Nivolumab: Autoimmune Diseases Cohort 2

Arms determined by autoimmune type. Second cohort consists of patients with:

Other autoimmune diseases (ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, multiple sclerosis). Patients must be discussed with PI prior to enrollment.

If a patient has more than one autoimmune condition, if all the conditions are within either cohort 1 or 2 above, the patient will be assigned to that cohort. If the patient has conditions from both cohort 1 and 2, the patient will be grouped in cohort 2.

Drug: Nivolumab

Nivolumab will be given as an IV infusion every two weeks, in an outpatient setting. One cycle is a 28-day period, with Nivolumab given on days 1 and 15 of a 28-day cycle.

For each cohort, all patients will be dosed at 240 mg IV. There will be no dose de-escalation or escalation from this dose level.





Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Dose-Limiting Toxicity (DLT) [ Time Frame: 48 Months ]
    The DLT determination period is the first six weeks after cycle 1 day 1. Dose limiting toxicities are further defined in the trial protocol.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall Response Rate [ Time Frame: 48 Months ]
    Overall response rate is defined to be the best objective status recorded from the start of the treatment until disease progression/recurrence

  2. Progression-Free Survival [ Time Frame: 48 Months ]
    Progression-free survival will be evaluated for each cohort using Kaplan-Meier estimator.

  3. Overall Survival [ Time Frame: 48 Months ]
    Overall survival will be evaluated for each cohort using Kaplan-Meier estimator.
