|Melanoma||Drug: Cyclophosphamide||Phase 2|
The transient removal of CTLA-4-mediated inhibition (CTLA-4 blockade) can induce effective anti-tumor immunity. Efficacy of CTLA-4 blockade as a single agent has been shown in melanoma 53. It has been hypothesized that anti-CTLA-4 antibody might deplete Treg cells 54, inducing autoimmunity. However, patients receiving Ipilimumab have not shown a decrease in Treg number or function in peripheral blood 55.
This trial will answer the question if the combination of Anti-CTLA 4 (following a well established regimen of Ipilimumab) and Cyclophosphamide (given at immunomodulatory doses) will result in antitumor activity in patients with metastatic melanoma due to synergistic immunomodulating effects by overcoming tolerance.

|Official Title:||Phase II Study of CTLA-4 Blockade and Low Dose Cyclophosphamide in Patients With Advanced Malignant Melanoma|
|Study Start Date :||October 2012|
|Actual Primary Completion Date :||December 2013|
|Actual Study Completion Date :||December 2014|
Experimental: Cyclophosphamide, Ipilimumab
Cyclophosphamide 300 mg/m2 po - Day 1 of Weeks 1, 4, 7, and 10, for a total of 4 doses; (premedication prior to each dose of Cyclophosphamide 8mg Zofran po, then prn)
Ipilimumab 10 mg/kg iv - Day 3 of Weeks 1, 4, 7, and 10 for a total of 4 doses Maintenance treatment will be given on Weeks 24, 36, and 48 Ipilimumab 10 mg/kg iv
This study consists of a Treatment Period, D1 Zofran 8mg pre-Cyclophosphamide 300mg/mg2 po and D3 Ipilimumab 10mg/kg iv wks 1,4,7 and 10; Tumor assessment at week 12; Follow-Up period weeks 13,16,and 20 with no treatment; Maintenance Period, D1 10mg/kg iv wks 24,36,48 and 60. Week 40=end of treatment; week 60=end of study
- The Anti-tumor Activity of the Combination of Low Dose Cyclophosphamide and CTLA-4 Blockade Using Objective Response Rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]Objective response rate (ORR) using mWHO RC. Per Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors Criteria (RECIST v1.0) for target lesions and assessed by MRI: Complete Response (CR), Disappearance of all target lesions; Partial Response (PR), >=30% decrease in the sum of the longest diameter of target lesions; Overall Response (OR) = CR + PR.
- Progression-free Survival [ Time Frame: Week 60 ]Progression-free survival is measured from date of entry to date of 1st documented evidence of recurrence, confirmation of PD, or death (whichever is 1st). T regulatory cells are measured on D1 (pre CTX) & D3 of each cycle.
- T Regulatory Cell Profile in Peripheral Blood [ Time Frame: Week 60 ]Peripheral blood taken at baseline/various therapeutic time points/possibly maintenance cycles to evaluate T regulatory cells identified, serially monitored by polychromatic flow cytometry using FoxP3+/CD4+/CD127low/CD25hi markers.
- Tumor-specific T Cell Responses Will be Measured in a Subset of Patients Who Have Biopsy Accessible Tumor and Have Tumor Biopsies Taken. [ Time Frame: Week 48 ]One of the tumor punch biopsy will be put in formalin for paraffin-embedding. The other tumor punch biopsy will be processed to obtain lysates to be used as antigens for the T cell assays. Two tumor punch biopsies (4mm in diameter) will be obtained before and after therapy (baseline and week 12, and optional during weeks 24, 36, and 48) if patients have accessible tumors.
