Brief Summary:
This is an open-label, non-randomized, phase II clinical research study designed to assess the safety and efficacy of nivolumab and ipilimumab in combination with paclitaxel in patients with treatment naïve NSCLC.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Non-small Cell Lung Cancer Drug: Nivolumab Drug: Ipilimumab Drug: Paclitaxel Phase 2

Detailed Description:

This is an open-label, non-randomized, phase II clinical research study designed to assess the safety and efficacy of nivolumab and ipilimumab in combination with paclitaxel in patients with treatment naïve NSCLC.

Patients with histologically confirmed stage IV or recurrent non curable NSCLC of squamous or non-squamous histology, with no prior systemic anticancer chemotherapy or immunotherapy given as primary treatment for advanced or metastatic disease may be eligible to participate in this study.

Patients enrolled into the study will be given the study drugs, nivolumab (360 mg) (Day 1) every 3 weeks, ipilimumab 1 mg/kg (Day 1) every 6 weeks, and paclitaxel 80mg/m2 on days 1 and 8 of each 21- day study treatment cycle. Paclitaxel will be stopped after a total of 4-6 cycles of treatment. Blood samples and possibly a small piece of tissue may be removed the patient's lung to see what type of lung cancer cells that she or he may have. Patients will also have other tests, exams, and procedures for study purposes and their standard of care. Subject participation in the study will last for up to approximately 48 months after the start of the study drug or until their condition worsens or they experience intolerable adverse events as deemed by the study doctor.

There are possible patient risk to this study that include but are not limited to diarrhea, itching, rash and a feeling of weakness.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: nivolumab, ipilimumab and paclitaxel Drug: Nivolumab
360 mg intravenously every 3 weeks
Other Name: Opdivo

Drug: Ipilimumab

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Progression-free survival (PFS) as determined by the investigator using Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors RECIST 1.1 (brand name) or death, whichever occurs first [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
    PFS will be defined as the time from first dosing date to the date of the first documented tumor progression or death, whichever occurs first


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Description of the safety and adverse events of the combination nivolumab, ipilimumab, and paclitaxel in untreated, metastatic NSCLC. [ Time Frame: Up to 4 years ]
    The study will assess the number and percentage of participants who experience high grade (Grade 3-4 and Grade 5) treatment-related select and immune-mediated adverse events that include: pneumonitis, interstitial nephritis, diarrhea/colitis, hepatitis, rash, endocrinopathies, and hypersensitivity/infusion reaction events.

  2. Estimate the overall response rate with the study combination. [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
    Objective Response Rate (ORR) defined as the number and percentage of participants with a best overall response (BOR) of confirmed complete response (CR) or partial response (PR). Best overall response (BOR) is defined as the best response designation, recorded between the date of first dose and the date of the initial objectively documented tumor progression per RECIST v1.1 or the date of subsequent therapy, whichever occurs first.

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

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Histologically confirmed Stage IV or recurrent Non-small cell lung cancer squamous or non-squamous histology (Stage IV as diagnosed using the 7th edition of Lung Cancer Stage Classification), with no prior systemic anticancer therapy given as primary therapy for advanced or metastatic disease. Prior adjuvant chemotherapy, neoadjuvant chemotherapy, or chemoradiotherapy is permitted as long as the last administration of the prior regimen occurred at least 6 months prior to study enrollment. Patients with EGFR, ALK, or ROS1 alterations must have received one prior TKI.
  • A core needle biopsy or surgical specimen must be available for submission.
  • At least one site of disease that is measurable by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) Version 1.1 that has not been previously irradiated; if the patient has had previous radiation to the marker lesion(s), there must be evidence of progression since the radiation.
  • Age ≥ 18 years with ability and willingness to provide informed consent.
  • ECOG performance status 0 or 1.
  • Negative pregnancy test done ≤72 hours (or per institutional policy) prior to treatment, for women of childbearing potential only. Female subjects should be using highly effective contraceptive measures, and must have a negative pregnancy test or must have evidence of non-child-bearing potential by fulfilling one of the following criteria at screening:

    1. Post-menopausal defined as aged more than 50 years and amenorrheic for at least 12 months following cessation of all exogenous hormonal treatments.
    2. Women under 50 years old would be consider postmenopausal if they have been amenorrheic for 12 months or more following cessation of exogenous hormonal treatments and with LH and FSH levels in the post-menopausal range for the institution
