Brief Summary:
This is an open-label, non-randomized two arm Phase 2 study of intravenous nivolumab plus intravenous ipilimumab or intravenous relatlimab in patients with metastatic melanoma stratified by MHC-II expression.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Metastatic Melanoma Advanced Melanoma Metastatic Melanoma Stratified by MHC-II Expression Drug: Nivolumab Drug: Relatlimab Drug: Ipilimumab Phase 2

Detailed Description:

Primary Objective:

• To evaluate the efficacy, measured by change in activated GZMB+ CD8+ T-cell density intratumorally, of two immunotherapy regimens in patients with advanced melanoma:

  • nivolumab plus relatlimab in patients with MHC-II (+) melanoma, and
  • nivolumab plus ipilimumab in patients with MHC-II (-) melanoma.

Secondary Objectives:

• To evaluate the response rate, median progression free survival, overall survival, and safety and tolerability of nivolumab plus relatlimab in patients with MHC-II (+) melanoma, and of nivolumab plus ipilimumab in patients with MHC-II (-) melanoma.

Exploratory Objectives

  • To explore potential associations of biomarkers with clinical efficacy and/or incidence of adverse events due to study drug by analyzing biomarker measures within the peripheral blood and tumor microenvironment.

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

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Signed and dated written informed consent.
  • ≥ 18 years of age at the time of informed consent.
  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0 or 1.
  • Histologically confirmed locally advanced/unresectable or metastatic melanoma.
  • Patients who have received prior anti-CTLA-4 or anti-PD-1/PD-L1 for adjuvant treatment of melanoma are eligible if > 6 months have elapsed between the last dose of adjuvant treatment and starting this study - provided there is no history of life-threatening toxicity related to such prior treatment, or such toxicity is unlikely to re-occur with standard countermeasures (e.g. hormone replacement after endocrinopathy).
  • Patients who have received adjuvant therapy with interferon and/or a BRAF inhibitor and/or MEK inhibitor for adjuvant therapy are permitted to enroll.
  • At least one measureable target lesion as defined by RECIST 1.1 which can be followed byCT or MRI.

    • If located in a previously irradiated area, a tumor lesion is considered a measurable/target lesion only if subsequent disease progression in the lesion has been documented at least 90 days following completion of radiotherapy.
  • Adequate organ and bone marrow function ≤ 14 days prior to first dose of protocol-indicated treatment:

    • White blood cell count (WBC) ≥ 2,000/mm3
    • Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥ 1,500/mm3
    • Platelets ≥ 75,000/mm3
    • Hemoglobin ≥ 8.0 g/dL.
    • Serum creatinine ≤ 2.0x upper limit of normal (ULN), or calculated creatinine clearance (CrCl) > 40 mL/min per the Cockcroft-Gault formula (Appendix 1).
    • Total bilirubin ≤ 1.5x ULN (except patients with Gilbert Syndrome, who must have total bilirubin < 3.0 mg/dL).
    • AST (aspartate aminotransferase) and ALT (alanine aminotransferase) ≤ 3.0x ULN (≤ 5.0x ULN in those with hepatic metastases)
  • Acceptable troponin level ≤ 14 days prior to first dose of protocol-indicated treatment:

    • Troponin T (TnT) or I (TnI) ≤ 2× institutional ULN.
    • Subjects with TnT or TnI levels between >1 to 2× ULN will be permitted if repeat levels within 24 hours are ≤ 1x ULN.
    • If TnT or TnI levels are >1 to 2× ULN within 24 hours, the subject may undergo a cardiac evaluation and be considered for treatment based on the discretion of the PI.
    • When repeat levels within 24 hours are not available, a repeat test should be conducted as soon as possible.
    • If TnT or TnI repeat levels beyond 24 hours are < 2x ULN, the subject may undergo a cardiac evaluation and be considered for treatment, based on the discretion of the PI.

If a sample is not available or if the quantity or quality of tissue is insufficient to provide adequate results, an additional biopsy may be performed for MHC-II analysis. Patients cannot be enrolled on the study unless MHC-II is known.

  • Known history of hepatitis B or hepatitis C.
