  Purpose

This pilot clinical trial studies radioembolization and ipilimumab in treating patients with uveal melanoma with liver metastases. Radioembolization kills tumor cells by blocking the blood flow to the tumor and keeping radioactive substances near the tumor. Monoclonal antibodies, such as ipilimumab, can block tumor growth in different ways. Some block the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Others find tumor cells and help kill them or carry tumor-killing substances to them. Giving radioembolization together with ipilimumab may kill more tumor cells in patients with uveal melanoma

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of patients that experience grade 3-4 toxicity as assessed by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) [ Time Frame: Up to 3 weeks after discontinuation of study treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Number of patients with an overall response of liver metastasis according to Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Sequential hepatic radioembolization and systemic ipilimumab will be considered potentially efficacious if >3/12 patients achieve objective responses because the upper limit of the corresponding exact 95% confidence interval will be >57%. The best overall response of liver metastases, from the start of hepatic radioembolization will be used for the efficacy analysis.

  • Overall survival [ Time Frame: From the hepatic radioembolization procedure until death, assessed up to 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Number of patients still alive after 5 years.

  • Progression-free (PFS) survival according to Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) [ Time Frame: From the hepatic radioembolization to confirmation of progression or death, assessed up to 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Number of patients progression free survival at 5 years. Hepatic and extrahepatic PFS will be evaluated separately.


Other Outcome Measures:
  • Tumor genotype/phenotype Biomarkers [ Time Frame: pre-treatment (Day 0 and 28), post-hepatic radioembolization (Day 71), post ipilimumab (Year 5) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    A number of correlative studies will be performed. Data will be analyzed longitudinally using methods such as repeated measures ANOVA; however, the primary analyses will be at specific time points (e.g., pre-treatment, post-hepatic radioembolization, post ipilimumab), and these analyses will be conducted using primarily non-parametric methods (e.g., Wilcoxon signed-rank or rank sum test). All tests will be two sided with a significance level of .05, and no adjustment for multiple comparisons will be made due to the exploratory nature of these studies.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Treatment (yttrium Y 90 glass microspheres, ipilimumab)
Patients undergo radioembolization with yttrium Y 90 glass microspheres via hepatic arterial infusion on day 1. Beginning on day 29, patients also receive ipilimumab IV over 90 minutes. Treatment with ipilimumab repeats every 3 weeks for up to 4 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Detailed Description:

PRIMARY OBJECTIVE:

I. To estimate the safety and efficacy of sequential hepatic radioembolization and systemic ipilimumab in patients with uveal melanoma metastatic to liver.

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To evaluate effects on regulators of tumor immunity.

OUTLINE:

Patients undergo radioembolization with yttrium Y 90 glass microspheres via hepatic arterial infusion on day 1. Beginning on day 29, patients also receive ipilimumab intravenously (IV) over 90 minutes. Treatment with ipilimumab repeats every 3 weeks for up to 4 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up for 5 years.

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Histologic diagnosis of metastatic uveal melanoma; the tumor biopsy/aspiration must be available for review
  • Patients must have measurable disease as defined by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST)
  • Patients must have liver metastasis

  • No concomitant therapy with any of the following: interleukin-2 (IL-2), interferon, or other non-study immunotherapy regimens; cytotoxic chemotherapy; immunosuppressive agents; other investigation therapies; or chronic use of systemic corticosteroids; must have been discontinued > 4 weeks
  • Patients with prior hepatic embolization procedures are eligible as long as they are candidates for repeat procedures and they have demonstrated progressive disease

  • No active infection with hepatitis B
  • No active or chronic infection with hepatitis C
  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status 0 or 1
  • Women must not be pregnant or breast-feeding due to unknown effects of treatments on the unborn fetus; all women of childbearing potential must have a blood test within 72 hours prior to randomization to rule out pregnancy; women of childbearing potential and sexually active males must be strongly advised to use an accepted and effective method of contraception; women of childbearing potential (WOCBP) must be using an adequate method of contraception to avoid pregnancy throughout the study and for up to 12 weeks after the last dose of investigational product, in such a manner that the risk of pregnancy is minimized; sexually mature females who have not undergone a hysterectomy or who have not been postmenopausal naturally for at least 24 consecutive months (i.e., who have had menses at some time in the preceding 24 consecutive months) are considered to be of childbearing potential; women who are using oral contraceptives, other hormonal contraceptives (vaginal products, skin patches, or implanted or injectable products), or mechanical products such as an intrauterine device or barrier methods (diaphragm, condoms, spermicides) to prevent pregnancy, or are practicing abstinence or where their partner is sterile (e.g., vasectomy) should be considered to be of childbearing potential
