Title Phase II study of Optimized Management of NIVOlumab based on REsponse in patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma (OMNIVORE study)

Objective We want to find out if two drugs, called nivolumab and ipilimumab, can stop or slow advanced renal cell carcinoma. We also want to find out if nivolumab and ipilimumab are safe to use to treat renal cell carcinoma. The combination of these two drugs is investigational. This means that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not approved the way nivolumab and ipilimumab are being given in this study, even though they are each FDA approved for other uses.

Treatment Prior to starting treatment, you will have a biopsy. Once on treatment, everyone on this study will receive nivolumab intravenously in two 28-day “courses.” In each course, you receive nivolumab every 2 weeks for 4 weeks; after 8 weeks, you will have a scan to find out how the cancer is responding.
Depending on what the scan shows the response of your disease to be, you will be placed in one of two groups: Arm A or Arm B:
  • Arm A: If the scan shows that your disease is improving, you will stop receiving nivolumab, and will have scans every 8 weeks. If your disease gets worse, you will begin to get nivolumab again
  • Arm B: If the scan shows that your disease has stayed the same or gotten worse, you will receive nivolumab and ipilimumab. Both will be given intravenously every 3 week

  • Description A phase 2 study of nivolumab in renal cell carcinoma
