Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety of BMS-986156 based on number of incidence of adverse events (AEs), serious adverse events (SAEs), adverse events leading to discontinuation and deaths in addition to clinical laboratory test abnormalities [ Time Frame: Up to 30 days after the last dose of study drug ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Objective response rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: Approximately 3 years ]
    ORR is defined as the proportion of all treated subjects whose best overall response is either a complete response (CR) or partial response (PR)

  2. Progression free survival rate (PFSR) [ Time Frame: Approximately 3 years ]
  3. Duration of response [ Time Frame: Approximately 3 years ]
    Duration of response is defined as the time between the date of first response and the date of disease progression or death, whichever occurs first

  4. Maximum observed concentration (Cmax) of BMS-986156 [ Time Frame: Day 1 to 56 days ]
  5. Time of maximum observed concentration (Tmax) of BMS-986156 [ Time Frame: Day 1 to 56 days ]
  6. Area under the concentration-time curve in one dosing interval (AUC [TAU]) of BMS-986156 [ Time Frame: Day 1 to 56 days ]
  7. Area under the plasma concentration-time curve from time zero to time of last quantifiable concentration (AUC(0-T) of BMS-986156 [ Time Frame: Day 1 to 56 days ]
  8. Anti-drug antibody (ADA) response to BMS-986156 [ Time Frame: Day 1 to 56 days ]
  9. Anti-drug antibody response to BMS-986156 and Nivolumab [ Time Frame: Day 1 to 56 days ]
