Brief Summary:
This phase II trial studies the effect of nivolumab in urothelial cancer that has spread to other places in the body (metastatic), specifically in patients with aberrations in ARID1A gene (ARID1A mutation) and correlate with expression level of CXCL13, an immune cytokine. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as nivolumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Giving nivolumab may help control the disease in patients with urothelial cancer or solid tumors. This trial aims at enriching patient selection based on genomic and immunological attributes of the tumor.

Detailed Description:

PRIMARY OBJECTIVE:

I. To estimate objective response rate (ORR) and overall survival (OS) in patients with ARID1A mutations receiving nivolumab therapy.

II. To estimate objective response rate (ORR) and overall survival (OS) in patients with ARID1A mutations plus CXCL13-high expression and ARID1A mutations plus CXCL13-low expression, receiving nivolumab therapy.

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To estimate progression free survival (PFS) in subjects with harboring ARID1A mutation treated with nivolumab monotherapy.

II. To estimate progression free survival (PFS) in subjects with ARID1A mutations plus CXCL13-high expression and ARID1A mutations plus CXCL13-low expression, treated with nivolumab monotherapy.

III. To assess peripheral and tumor infiltrating immune cell sub-populations in patients with ARID1A mutations, ARID1A plus CXCL13-high and ARID1A plus CXCL13-low expression, to determine predictors of response and resistance.

IV. To determine expression pattern of CXCL13 in ARID1A mutant tumors.

OUTLINE:

Patients receive nivolumab intravenously (IV) over 30 minutes on day 1. Cycles repeats 28 days (4 weeks) for up to 2 years in the absence of disease or unacceptable toxicity.

After the completion of study treatment, patients are followed up for 100 days, then every 3-6 months thereafter.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Objective response rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ]
    Defined as the rate of confirmed complete responses + partial responses as determined by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors 1.1 criteria and as assessed by the investigator. In addition, will also calculate the posterior probability that ORR is bigger in CXCL13 high group than in the CXCL low group.

  2. Overall survival (OS) [ Time Frame: From date of first study treatment to death due to any cause, assessed up to 2 years ]
    The Kaplan-Meier method will be used to estimate the median OS and 1-year survival rate; the 95% confidence interval (CI) of the 1-year survival rate will also be reported.


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Progression free survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ]

    Will be estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method and compared using the log rank test. Cox proportional Hazard models will be used to evaluate the association between PFS or OS and ARID1A mutation / CXCL13 expressions to evaluate their utility as predictive biomarkers for efficacy.

    Logistic regression models will be fitted to explore the association between response and ARID1A mutation / CXCL13 expressions to evaluate their utility as predictive biomarkers for efficacy.


  2. Overall survival [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ]

    Will be estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method and compared using the log rank test. Cox proportional Hazard models will be used to evaluate the association between PFS or OS and ARID1A mutation / CXCL13 expressions to evaluate their utility as predictive biomarkers for efficacy.
