Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Arm A - Tadalafil, Pembrolizumab, Ipilimumab, CRS-207 Drug: Tadalafil
Patients will receive treatment every 3 weeks for 6 cycles of treatment within a course (total of 18 weeks). Tadalafil (20 mg) will be administered orally every day on days 3-21 for cycles 1-6.

Drug: Pembrolizumab
Patients will receive treatment every 3 weeks for 6 cycles of treatment within a course (total of 18 weeks). Pembrolizumab (200 mg) will be administered IV on Day 1 of cycles 1-6.
Other Name: KEYTRUDA®

Drug: Ipilimumab
Patients will receive treatment every 3 weeks for 6 cycles of treatment within a course (total of 18 weeks). Ipilimumab (50mg) will be administered IV on Day 1 of Cycles 1, 3, and 5.
Other Name: YERVOY®

Drug: CRS-207
Patients will receive treatment every 3 weeks for 6 cycles of treatment within a course (total of 18 weeks). CRS-207 [1 × 109 colony forming units (CFU) in 100ml NS] will be administered IV on Day 2 of Cycles 1-6.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Objective response rate (irORR) using immune Response Evaluation Criteria for Solid Tumors (iRECIST) [ Time Frame: 4 years ]
    irORR is defined as the number of patients achieving a complete response (irCR) or partial response (irPR) based on the immune Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (iRECIST) at any time during the study. irCR = disappearance of all target lesions, irPR is =>30percent decrease in sum of diameters of target lesions, progressive disease (irPD) is >20percent increase in sum of diameters of target lesions, stable disease (irSD) is <30percent decrease or <20percent increase in sum of diameters of target lesions.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of participants experiencing grade 3 or above drug-related toxicities [ Time Frame: 4 years ]
    When calculating the incidence of adverse event (AE)s, each AE (as defined by NCI CTCAE v5.0) will be counted only once for a given subject.
