Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase 2 Open-label Study of Nivolumab Combined With Lutetium 177-Labeled Anti-Carbonic Anhydrase IX Monoclonal Antibody Girentuximab in Patients With Clear Cell Advanced Renal Cell Carcinoma
Actual Study Start Date : February 16, 2022
Estimated Primary Completion Date : March 2024
Estimated Study Completion Date : March 2024


Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Safety lead-in Phase: Participants with Advanced or Metastatic Clear Cell Renal Cell Carcinoma/RCC
Participants have Advanced or Metastatic Clear Cell Renal Cell Carcinoma/RCC. The protocol will start with a safety-lead in phase using a 3+3 design to establish the maximal tolerated dose (MTD) of 177Lu-labeled-girentuximab in combination with standard-dose nivolumab. The initial starting dose of 177Lu-labeled-girentuximab is 1804 MBq/m2 which is 75% of the single agent dose established in prior studies and will proceed as shown in the schema below. Once the MTD is established, a Simon two-stage optimal design will commence. 10 patients will be enrolled in the first stage and if no responses are observed, the study will be terminated. If 1 or more responses are observed in the first 10 patients, we will extend enrollment to a total of 29 patients (19 additional patients) in the second stage.
Drug: 177Lu-labeled-girentuximab

The initial starting dose/Dose Level 1 of 177Lu-labeled-girentuximab is 1804 MBq/m2. if 0/3 or 1/6 DLTs, participants will be treated at Dose Level 2 177Lu-girentuximab 2405 MBq/m2. >/= 2/6 DLTs, Dose Level -1 is 177Lu-girentuximab 1353 MBq/m2

Once the MTD is established, a Simon two-stage optimal design will commence.

Diagnostic Test: 177Lu whole body (WB) planar and SPECT/CT scans
177Lu whole body (WB) planar and SPECT/CT scans will be performed after each administration of 177Lu-girentuximab

Experimental: Phase 2 Participants
Participants have Advanced or Metastatic Clear Cell Renal Cell Carcinoma/RCC. If 1 or more responses are observed in the first 10 patients, we will extend enrollment to a total of 29 patients (19 additional patients) in the second stage.

The initial starting dose/Dose Level 1 of 177Lu-labeled-girentuximab is 1804 MBq/m2. if 0/3 or 1/6 DLTs, participants will be treated at Dose Level 2 177Lu-girentuximab 2405 MBq/m2. >/= 2/6 DLTs, Dose Level -1 is 177Lu-girentuximab 1353 MBq/m2

Once the MTD is established, a Simon two-stage optimal design will commence.


Drug: Nivolumab
Nivolumab 240mg q2wk

Diagnostic Test: 89Zr-girentuximab PET/CT
All patients will undergo a 89Zr-girentuximab PET/CT scan prior to every 177Lu-girentuximab administration

Diagnostic Test: 177Lu whole body (WB) planar and SPECT/CT scans
177Lu whole body (WB) planar and SPECT/CT scans will be performed after each administration of 177Lu-girentuximab




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Maximal tolerated dose (MTD) of 177Lu-girentuximab [ Time Frame: 24 (+/- 2) weeks ]
    To determine the maximal tolerated dose (MTD) of 177Lu-girentuximab when given in combination with nivolumab (safety lead-in)

  2. Overall Response Rate/ORR [ Time Frame: 24 (+/- 2) weeks ]
    efficacy of the combination at the MTD of 177Lu-labelled girentuximab in patients with advanced ccRCC as assessed by best ORR by 24 (+/- 2) weeks by Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors (RECIST v1.1).
