I. To determine the frequency of patients responding (response rate) to talimogene laherparepvec monotherapy.
I. To determine the local response rate to talimogene laherparepvec in injected tumors.
II. To determine the response rate to talimogene laherparepvec + nivolumab (NIVO).
III. To identify potential pre-treatment and on-treatment correlative biomarkers of local and systemic immune response.
Patients receive talimogene laherparepvec intratumorally (IT) on day 1. Patients without response at week 12, may also receive nivolumab intravenously (IV) over 60 minutes on day 1. Cycles repeat every 21 for course 1 then every 14 days for up to 1 year in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 12 weeks for 3 years.

Experimental: Treatment (talimogene laherparepvec, nivolumab)
Patients receive talimogene laherparepvec IT on day 1. Patients without response at week 12, may also receive nivolumab IV over 60 minutes on day 1. Cycles repeat every 21 days for course 1 then every 14 days for up to 1 year in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Other: Laboratory Biomarker Analysis
Biological: Talimogene Laherparepvec
- Best overall response rate to talimogene laherparepvec alone [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year ]Will be assessed by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) version 1.1. Arm assignment is based on tumor type: Merkel cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, other non-melanoma skin cancers, and refractory T cell lymphomas and NK cell lymphomas. If at least 4 responses were observed in an arm (observed response rate [RR] = 4/17 or 23.5%), talimogene laherparepvec (T-VEC) would be considered promising in that tumor type. Between-arm comparisons will not be performed
- Best overall response rate to talimogene laherparepvec and nivolumab combination therapy [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year ]Will be assessed by RECIST version 1.1.
- Durable response rate [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year ]Will be defined as complete response or partial response lasting >= 6 months.
- Response rate by cancer type [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year ]Will be assessed by RECIST version 1.1.
- Response rate of injected lesions [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year ]Will be assessed by RECIST version 1.1.
- Response rate of non-injected lesions [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year ]Will be assessed by RECIST version 1.1.
- Frequency of curative surgery (unresectable lesion becomes resectable) [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year ]
- Progression free survival [ Time Frame: From start of treatment to time of progression or death, whichever occurs first, assessed at 1 year ]
- Progression free survival [ Time Frame: From start of treatment to time of progression or death, whichever occurs first, assessed at 2 years ]
- Overall survival [ Time Frame: At 1 year ]
- Overall survival [ Time Frame: At 2 years ]
- Incidence of adverse events [ Time Frame: Up to week 24 ]Will be assessed by National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events version 5.0.
- Change in herpes simplex virus (HSV) serostatus assessed in blood specimens [ Time Frame: Baseline to week 6 ]Will be analyzed using descriptive statistics. A test of proportions will be performed.
- Biomarker analysis of %PD-L1, flow cytometry for HVEM, NECTIN1/2, and IDO, tryptophan and L-kynurenine, cytokine levels, Nanostring, number of non-synonymous mutations, and % T-cell receptor (TCR) clonality [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year ]Will be analyzed using descriptive statistics. Logistic regression of response rate on the variable will be performed.
- Biomarker analysis of necrosis and Nanostring [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year ]Will be analyzed using descriptive statistics. Logistic regression of response rate on the variable will be performed.
- Biomarker analysis of herpes simplex virus (HSV) status, Merkel cell polyomavirus status, and PD-L1 status [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year ]Will be analyzed using descriptive statistics. Test of proportions and logistic regression will be performed.
