The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if tremelimumab in combination with MEDI4736 can help to control colorectal cancer that has spread to the liver. The safety of these drugs will also be studied.

This is an investigational study. MEDI4736 and tremelimumab are not FDA approved or commercially available. They are currently being used for research purposes only.

The study doctor can explain how the study drugs are designed to work.

Up to 35 participants will take part in this study. All will be enrolled at MD Anderson.

Official Title: Pilot Study Assessing the Safety and Tolerability of the Neoadjuvant Use of Tremelimumab (Anti-CTLA-4) Plus Durvalumab (MEDI4736) (Anti-PD-L1) in the Treatment of Resectable Colorectal Cancer Liver Metastases

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Feasibility of Tremelimumab plus MEDI4736 with FOLFOX and Bevacizumab in Candidates for Resection of Colorectal Cancer Liver Metastases [ Time Frame: 15 weeks ]
    Feasibility assessed by whether or not the patient successfully goes to surgery following the planned treatments, scans, and biopsy. Combination regimen considered feasible if at least 80% of patients successfully undergo surgery. It will be infeasible if fewer than 60% of patients can undergo surgery.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Relapse-free survival (RFS) of Tremelimumab plus MEDI4736 with FOLFOX and Bevacizumab in Candidates for Resection of Colorectal Cancer Liver Metastases [ Time Frame: 56 weeks ]
    Relapse-free survival (RFS) assessed from the date of study entry until relapse or death from any cause.

Estimated Enrollment: 35
Actual Study Start Date: July 28, 2016
Estimated Study Completion Date: July 2021
Estimated Primary Completion Date: July 2021 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Tremelimumab + MEDI4736

Participants receive Tremelimumab by vein over about 1 hour and MEDI4736 by vein over about 4 hours during Week 11. After Week 11, participants receives MEDI4736 alone by vein over about 1 hour during Weeks 21, 25, 29, and 33.

Between Weeks 15 and 17, participant undergoes scheduled liver surgery.

Other Name: Durvalumab
Procedure: Liver Resection
Participant undergoes scheduled liver resection between Weeks 15 and 17.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Patients must have histologically or cytologically confirmed colorectal cancer with liver metastases deemed resectable by a general or liver surgeon (resectability may involve the use of ablative techniques to some but not all liver metastases). Those patients with known disease outside of the liver are not eligible (except for patients with primary lesions in place that are planned for resection or nonspecific lung metastases <1cm).
  2. Patients must have measurable disease, defined as at least one lesion that can be accurately measured in at least one dimension (longest diameter to be recorded) as =/>10 mm with spiral CT scan.
  3. All lines of prior therapy accepted. Subjects with prior hepatic or extra-hepatic resections of metastatic disease will be included.
  4. Age =/>18 years. Because no dosing or adverse event data are currently available on the use of tremelimumab in combination with durvalumab in patients <18 years of age, children are excluded from this study.
  5. Life expectancy of greater than 6 months.
  6. ECOG performance status =/<1 (Karnofsky =/>70%).
  7. Patients must have normal organ and marrow function as defined: a) leukocytes =/>3,000/mcL; b) absolute neutrophil count =/>1,500/mcL; c) platelets =/>100,000/mcL; d) total bilirubin < 1.5 X institutional normal limits (subjects with known Gilbert syndrome are eligible with total bilirubin < 3.0 mg/dL); e) AST(SGOT)/ALT(SGPT) =/< 3 X institutional upper limit of normal; f) creatinine within normal institutional limits OR g) creatinine clearance =/>60 mL/min/1.73 m^2 for patients with creatinine levels above institutional normal.
  8. Known or ordered molecular testing for MSI, BRAF, and KRAS status.
  9. Evidence of post-menopausal status or negative urinary or serum pregnancy test for female pre-menopausal patients. Women will be considered post-menopausal if they have been amenorrheic for 12 months without an alternative medical cause. The following age-specific requirements apply: Women <50 years of age would be considered post-menopausal if they have been amenorrheic for 12 months or more following cessation of exogenous hormonal treatments and if they have luteinizing hormone and follicle-stimulating hormone levels in the post-menopausal range for the institution or underwent surgical sterilization (bilateral oophorectomy or hysterectomy).
  10. Continuation from criteria above: Women >/= 50 years of age would be considered post-menopausal if they have been amenorrheic for 12 months or more following cessation of all exogenous hormonal treatments, had radiation-induced menopause with last menses >1 year ago, had chemotherapy-induced menopause with last menses >1 year ago, or underwent surgical sterilization (bilateral oophorectomy, bilateral salpingectomy or hysterectomy).
  11. Ability to understand and the willingness to sign a written informed consent document.
  12. Weight >30kg (required for flat dose-based administration of study agents)

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Prior chemotherapy < 2 weeks prior to study drug treatment and treatment related adverse events that have not recovered to baseline or grade 1 (alopecia excluded). Prior radiation therapy <4weeks prior to study drug treatment.
  2. Patients may not be receiving any other investigational agents.
  3. Active or prior documented autoimmune or inflammatory disorders (including inflammatory bowel disease [eg, colitis or Crohn's disease], diverticulitis [with the exception of diverticulosis], systemic lupus erythematosus, Sarcoidosis syndrome, or Wegener syndrome [granulomatosis with polyangiitis, Graves' disease, rheumatoid arthritis, hypophysitis, uveitis, etc.]). The following are exceptions to this criterion: a) Patients with vitiligo or alopecia; b) Patients with hypothyroidism (eg, following Hashimoto syndrome) stable on hormone replacement; c) Any chronic skin condition that does not require systemic therapy; d) Patients without active disease in the last 5 years may be included but only after consultation with the study physician; d) Patients with celiac disease controlled by diet alone.
  4. Subjects with a condition requiring systemic treatment with either corticosteroids (>10mg daily prednisone equivalents) or other immunosuppressive medications within 14 days of study drug administration. Inhaled or topical steroids and adrenal replacement doses > 10mg daily prednisone equivalents are permitted in the absence of active autoimmune disease.
  5. Prior exposure to T cell checkpoint inhibitor therapies, including durvalumab and tremelimumab.
  6. Uncontrolled intercurrent illness including, but not limited to, ongoing or active infection, interstitial lung disease, symptomatic congestive heart failure, unstable angina pectoris, cardiac arrhythmia, or psychiatric illness/social situations that would limit compliance with study requirements.
  7. Known allergy or hypersensitivity to any of the study drugs or any of the study drug excipients.
  8. History of active primary immunodeficiency

  12. Any concurrent chemotherapy, biologic, or hormonal therapy for cancer treatment. Concurrent use of hormonal therapy for non-cancer-related conditions (e.g., hormone replacement therapy) is acceptable.
  13. Major surgical procedure within 28 days prior to the first dose of IP. Note: Local surgery of isolated lesions for palliative intent is acceptable.
  14. History of allogenic organ transplantation.
  15. Known active infection including tuberculosis (clinical evaluation that includes clinical history, physical examination and radiographic findings, and TB testing in line with local practice), hepatitis B (known positive HBV surface antigen (HBsAg) result), hepatitis C, or human immunodeficiency virus (positive HIV 1/2 antibodies). Patients with a past or resolved HBV infection (defined as the presence of hepatitis B core antibody [anti-HBc] and absence of HBsAg) are eligible. Patients positive for hepatitis C (HCV) antibody are eligible only if polymerase chain reaction is negative for HCV RNA.
  16. Female patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding or male or female patients of reproductive potential who are not willing to employ effective birth control from screening to 90 days after the last dose of durvalumab monotherapy or180 days after the last dose of durvalumab + tremelimumab combination therapy.
