Brief Summary:
This is an open label phase 2 study for advanced sarcoma using metronomic doses of gemcitabine, doxorubicin and docetaxel, and nivolumab immunotherapy given intravenously.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Sarcoma Drug: Gemcitabine Drug: Doxorubicin Drug: Docetaxel Drug: Nivolumab Phase 2

Detailed Description:

This is an open label phase 2 study for advanced sarcoma using metronomic doses of gemcitabine, doxorubicin and docetaxel, and nivolumab immunotherapy given intravenously.

A total of 260 patients will receive gemcitabine 600 mg/m2 (maximum dose: 1000 mg) on D1 and D8, doxorubicin 18 mg/m2 on D1 and D8 (maximum dose: 32 mg), docetaxel 25 mg/m2 on D1 and D8 (maximum dose: 42 mg), on Days 1 and 8. After the first cycle, nivolumab 240 mg IV will be added on Day 1 of each cycle (see product information; www.accessdata.fda.gov). Treatment cycles are given every 3 weeks. Patients in this study may continue treatment until significant disease progression or unacceptable toxicity occurs up to one year of therapy.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Ability to understand the purposes and risks of the study and has signed and dated a written informed consent form approved by the Investigator's IRB/Ethics Committee
  • Willingness to comply with all study procedures and availability for the duration of the study.
  • Previously treated patient with measurable disease by RECIST v1.1
  • ECOG performance status ≤ 2
  • Life expectancy of at least 3 months
  • Acceptable cardiac function with LV ejection fraction of > 50%
  • Acceptable liver function: Bilirubin < 1.5 times upper limit of normal (ULN; except subjects with Gilbert Syndrome who must have a total bilirubin level < 3.0 ULN); AST (SGOT), ALT (SGPT) and alk phos < 2.5 x ULN (< 5 x ULN if liver metastases present)

Replacement therapy (eg, thyroxine, insulin, or physiologic corticosteroid replacement therapy for adrenal or pituitary insufficiency, etc.) is not considered a form of systemic treatment.
  • Currently receiving treatment with another investigational device or drug study, or <14 days since ending treatment with another investigational device or drug study(s).
  • Subject has known sensitivity to gemcitabine, doxorubicin, docetaxel or nivolumab.
  • Female subject is pregnant or breast-feeding or planning to become pregnant during study treatment and through 3 months after the last dose of gemcitabine, doxorubicin, docetaxel or nivolumab.
  • Female subject of childbearing potential who is unwilling to use acceptable method(s) of effective contraception during study treatment and through 3 months after the last dose of gemcitabine, doxorubicin, docetaxel or nivolumab.
  • Sexually active subjects and their partners unwilling to use male or female latex condom
