Brief Summary:
This phase I trial studies the side effects of nivolumab, BMS-986205, and standard radiation therapy with or without temozolomide in treating patients with new diagnosed glioblastoma. Immunotherapy with nivolumab, may induce changes in body?s immune system and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. BMS-986205 may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Radiation therapy uses high energy x-rays to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as temozolomide, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving nivolumab and BMS-986205 may work better compared to radiation therapy and temozolomide alone in treating patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Incidence of adverse events (AEs) [ Time Frame: Up to 30 days after last dose ]
    Drug safety and tolerability will be evaluated by descriptively summarizing AEs, laboratory assessments, vital signs, and electrocardiogram assessments using tables of frequencies and counts for categorical variables and means (sds) or medians (ranges, interquartile ranges) for continuous variables.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall survival [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year ]
    The survival curve will be plotted using the Kaplan-Meier method. Median survival time and the 95% confidence interval will be presented for each study group and 1-year overall survival will be estimated. The 95% confidence intervals will be obtained by Greenwood?s formula.

  2. Median survival [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year ]
    The survival curve will be plotted using the Kaplan-Meier method. Median survival time and the 95% confidence interval will be presented for each study group and 1-year overall survival will be estimated. The 95% confidence intervals will be obtained by Greenwood?s formula.

  3. Progression free survival at 6 months [ Time Frame: Up to 6 months ]
    The Kaplan Meier curve will be plotted and median time to disease progression and the 95% confidence interval will be calculated. 6-month progression free survival will also be estimated. Since tumor assessment will only be performed periodically (every 8 weeks), the Kaplan-Meier estimate (estimated probability that a subject is progression-free at a specific time) and its 95% confidence interval will be provided at the end of each 8-week period.

  4. Median time to disease progression [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year ]
    The Kaplan Meier curve will be plotted and median time to disease progression and the 95% confidence interval will be calculated. 6-month progression free survival will also be estimated. Since tumor assessment will only be performed periodically (every 8 weeks), the Kaplan-Meier estimate (estimated probability that a subject is progression-free at a specific time) and its 95% confidence interval will be provided at the end of each 8-week period.

  5. Radiographic response rates (RR) [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ]
    Response rate is the percentage of subjects who achieve partial response (PR) or complete response (CR) according to the immunotherapy Response Assessment in Neuro-Oncology (iRANO) criteria. Radiographic RR will be determined by iRANO criteria. The response rate will be calculated as the percentage of responders, and similarly, the 95% confidence interval will be calculated using the exact binomial method, if data allows.

  6. Response rate [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ]
    Defined as percentage of subjects who achieve PR or CR according to the iRANO criteria. The response rate will be calculated as the percentage of responders, and similarly, the 95% confidence interval will be calculated using the exact binomial method, if data allows.

  7. Median duration of response [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year ]
    Tumor response will be reported as CR, PR, stable disease (SD), PD, or unknown according to the iRANO criteria. The response rate will be calculated as the percentage of responders, and similarly, the 95% confidence interval will be calculated using the exact binomial method, if data allows.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients must have a newly diagnosed histologically confirmed diagnosis of any grade IV glioma with documentation of MGMT methylation status. The histological diagnosis can be obtained either from a brain biopsy or from a neurosurgical resection of the tumor

    • Note: Study enrollment is to be within 5 weeks from diagnostic surgery or biopsy
    • Note: Pyrosequencing to determine MGMT methylation status will be performed at Northwestern Memorial Hospital as standard of care (SOC)
  • Tumor tissue specimens from the GBM surgery or biopsy for central pathology review and exploratory analysis of immunocorrelative studies, if available (no minimum requirement)
  • For subjects who had undergone tumor resection, preoperative gadolinium (Gd)-magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and immediate postoperative Gd-MRI performed within < 72 hours after surgery or biopsy is recommended. If computed tomography (CT) scans were performed perioperatively, an MRI should be performed before initiation of study treatment
  • Patients must exhibit a Karnofsky performance score of >= 70%
  • Stable or decreasing dose of steroids for >= 7 days prior to registration

    • Note: Patients must be off of all steroids at the time of initiation of study treatment (day 1 [D#1])
  • Patients must have adequate organ and bone marrow function at registration, as defined below:
  • Absolute neutrophil count >= 1500/mm^3
  • Platelets >= 100,000/mm^3

  • Females of child-bearing potential (FOCBP) and males must agree to use adequate contraception prior to study entry, for the duration of study participation, and for 5 months following completion of therapy. Should a female patient become pregnant or suspect she is pregnant while participating in this study, she should inform her treating physician immediately. Due to the potential interaction with study drug(s), contraceptions that use hormones are not considered to be highly effective for FOCBP participants in this study.

    • NOTE: A FOCBP is any woman (regardless of sexual orientation, having undergone a tubal ligation, or remaining celibate by choice) who meets the following criteria:

      • Has not undergone a hysterectomy or bilateral oophorectomy. Has had menses at any time in the preceding 12 consecutive months (and therefore has not been naturally postmenopausal for > 12 months)
  • Males who are sexually active with FOCBP must agree to follow instructions for method(s) of contraception for the duration of treatment with study treatment plus 7 months after the last dose of the study treatment (i.e., 90 days [duration of sperm turnover] plus the time required for nivolumab to undergo approximately 5 half-lives). In addition, male participants must be willing to refrain from sperm donation during this time. Male participants with partners who are FOCBP are required to use a condom for study duration and until end of relevant systemic exposure defined as 7 months after the end of study treatment. This criteria applies to azoospermic males as well
  • FOCBP must have a negative serum pregnancy test within 14 days of registration on study and within 24 hours of beginning study treatment
  • Clinically normal cardiac function without history of ischemic heart disease in the past 6 months and normal 12 lead electrocardiogram (ECG)
