Brief Summary:
The primary objective of Stage 1 is to evaluate the safety of nivolumab consolidation after completion of HD-MTX containing induction chemotherapy in older subjects with PCNSL in terms of a tolerated dose (based on dose-limiting toxicities) for the expansion phase of the study (Stage 2).The primary objective of Stage 2 is to evaluate the efficacy of nivolumab consolidation after completion of HD-MTX containing induction chemotherapy in terms of the 2-year progression-free survival rate and compare to relevant historical controls

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Brain and Nervous System Eye and Orbit Drug: Nivolumab Phase 1

Detailed Description:
This is a 2-stage phase 1B study of nivolumab consolidation following completion of HD-MTX containing induction chemotherapy in older (≥ 65 years old) patients with previously untreated primary CNS lymphoma. Stage 1 is designed to evaluate the safety of nivolumab consolidation. We plan to use 3+3 design and start at the FDA approved single agent dose of nivolumab 480 mg intravenously every 4 weeks. Stage 2 is designed to evaluate the safety as well as efficacy of nivolumab consolidation after HD-MTX containing induction chemotherapy in an expansion cohort.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety of Nivolumab in Older Subjects [ Time Frame: Until up to 6 subjects can be adequately assessed for DLT. ]
    The primary endpoint for the Stage 1 phase of the study is dose-limiting toxicity which will be assessed for each Stage 1 subject using the DLT criteria

  2. Efficacy of Nivolumab [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    The primary endpoint for the Stage 1 phase of the study is the 2-year progression-free endpoint which will be determined for each subject as a binary variable indicating if they are alive and progression-free at 2 years (PFS2)


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Progression Free Survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    PFS is defined as the duration of time from enrollment to first occurrence of either progressive disease or death.

  2. Overall Survival (OS) [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    OS is defined as the duration from enrollment to the date of death from any cause.

  3. Objective and Complete Response Rates [ Time Frame: approx. 2 years ]
    Objective response will be determined for each subject as a binary variable indicating if they have achieved a best overall response of CR or PR as determined by the International Criteria for PCNSL (IPCG). Complete response will be determined for each subject as a binary variable indicating if they have achieved a best overall response of CR as determined by the International Criteria for PCNSL(IPCG).

  4. Conversion Rate from Partial to Complete Response [ Time Frame: approx. 2 years ]
    Response conversion will be determined for each subject who achieve a best overall response of PR during induction therapy as a binary variable indicating if the subsequently achieve a best overall response of CR to nivolumab consolidation therapy.

Ages Eligible for Study:   65 Years and older   (Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

Subjects must meet all of the following criteria to participate in this study:

  1. Written informed consent and HIPAA authorization for release of personal health information of subject or subject's legally authorized representative.
  2. Age ≥ 65 years at the time of consent
  3. Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0 - 3 within 14 days prior to day 1 of treatment
  4. Histological or cytological confirmation of PCNSL, CD20 positive by immunohistochemistry
  5. Received at least 2 cycles of high-dose methotrexate (HD-MTX) containing induction chemotherapy per institutional standard (R-MPV preferred; see Appendix VI ) without evidence of progressive disease. No less than 4 weeks and no more than 8 weeks may have elapsed between last dose of HD-MTX containing induction chemotherapy and day 1 of study treatment
  6. Recovered from all reversible acute toxic effects of prior therapy (other than alopecia) to ≤ Grade 1 or baseline)
  7. Measurable disease at the time of diagnosis (i.e. prior to pre-study HD-MTX containing induction chemotherapy) including lesions that can be accurately measured in 2 dimensions by CT or MRI of brain and with a greatest transverse diameter of ≥ 1 cm. The following disease assessments must have been obtained prior to initiation of pre-study HD-MTX containing induction chemotherapy: MRI of the brain (and spine if indicated)
  8. Deemed poor candidate for whole brain irradiation (WBI) or autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT) due to advanced age, ECOG performance status of 2, or in the opinion of the treating physician, subject would not tolerate the administration of WBI or ASCT for other reasons
  9. Life expectancy of at least 3 months
  10. Demonstrate adequate organ function as defined below (all screening labs to be obtained within 14 days prior to day 1 of treatment):

    1. Absolute Neutrophil Count (ANC) ≥ 1000K/mm3
