Nivolumab and Relatlimab in Advanced Mismatch Repair Deficient (dMMR/MSI-High) Cancers Resistant to Prior PD-(L)1 Inhibitor

About the Study

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety, effectiveness, and tolerability of using the immunotherapy drugs nivolumab and relatlimab in patients with microsatellite instability high (MSI-H) solid tumors resistant to prior PD-(L)1 therapy.

Both Nivolumab and Relatlimab are a type of immunotherapy known as immune checkpoint inhibitors. Immune checkpoint inhibitors are drugs that prevent cancer cells from switching off immune cells. This allows the immune system to find, unmask and destroy cancer cells.

Type of Study

This is an open-label, non-randomized, 2-arm study.

  • The study has 2 arms, participants will be placed in one of two groups.
  • The study is open-label study, participants will know which group they have been assigned to and which medication they are receiving.  

What the Study Entails

Study participants will be placed into one of two groups. 

  • Group 1: Nivolumab and Relatlimab will be given together. Patients will receive both drugs intravenously (IV) on day 1 of a 28 day cycle for up to 2 years. 
  • Group 2: Nivolumab and Relatlimab will be administered sequentially. Patients will receive one drug therapy first via IV, then will receive the second drug therapy via IV.  Drugs will be administered on day 1 of a 28 day cycle for up to 2 years. 

Study participants will be followed for 4 years.
