Current Secondary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: September 25, 2017)
  • Safety and tolerability according to the classification of the National Cancer Institute Common Toxicity Criteria for Adverse Effects (NCI-CTCAE) Version 4.03. [ Time Frame: 15 months per patient ]
    The assessment of safety and tolerability will be based on the incidence of Adverse Events (AEs), Serious Adverse Events, AEs leading to discontinuation, and death. In addition, clinical laboratory test abnormalities will be examined. Tolerability will be evaluated by collecting dose interruptions and dose delays.
  • Progression Free Survival [ Time Frame: 24 months per patient ]
    Progression Free Survival (PFS) is defined as the time from inclusion until progression or deaths; patients alive at last follow-up news are censored at this date.
  • Objective Response Rate [ Time Frame: 24 months per patient ]
    Objective Response Rate (ORR) is defined as the number of patients with Best Overall Response divided by the number of included patients in each cohort.

Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE TNF-Inhibitor as Immune Checkpoint Inhibitor for Advanced MELanoma
Official Title  ICMJE TNF-Inhibitor as Immune Checkpoint Inhibitor for Advanced MELanoma - A Phase Ib Clinical Study
Brief Summary This is a Phase 1b, open-label study of immune checkpoints inhibitors Nivolumab+Ipilimumab administered in combination with the anti-TNF-α either Infliximab or Certolizumab, in patients with advanced melanoma.
Detailed Description

The study will be conducted in 2 consecutive parts:

  • Part 1 with 2 parallel cohorts (Nivolumab+Ipilimumab administered in combination with anti-TNF-α Certolizumab (Cohort 1) and Nivolumab+Ipilimumab administered in combination with anti-TNF-α Infliximab (Cohort 2)). 6 patients will be included in each cohort.
  • Part 2 (expansion phase) will then be scheduled after the most promising combination has been confirmed; the choice of the combination will be based on safety, efficacy, and PD data observed in both cohorts during the Part 1 of the study.

Eligibility Criteria  ICMJE

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Patient with histologically-proven metastatic and/or unresectable melanoma (stage IIIc-IV, M1a-c as per AJCC 2009), including mucosal melanoma, without evidence of active intra-cranial disease.
  2. Subjects are included regardless of BRAFV600 mutation status. BRAFV600 mutation status must be documented.
  3. Measurable disease per RECIST 1.1
  4. Age ≥18 years and ≤70 years at the time of study entry.
  5. Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) Performance Status 0-1.
  6. Life expectancy of at least 3 months.
  7. Patient able to participate and willing to give informed consent prior to performance of any study-related procedures and to comply with the study protocol.
  8. Screening laboratory values must meet the following criteria and should be obtained prior to commencement of treatment:

    White blood count (WBC) ≥ 2000/μL Neutrophils ≥ 1500/μL Platelets ≥ 100 x103/μL Hemoglobin > 9.0 g/dL

    Serum creatinine ≤ 1.5 x ULN or creatinine clearance (CrCl) ≥ 40 mL/min (if using the Cockcroft-Gault formula below):

    Female CrCl = (140 - age in years) x weight in kg x 0.85 / 72 x serum creatinine in mg/dL Male CrCl = (140 - age in years) x weight in kg x 1.00 / 72 x serum creatinine in mg/dL AST/ALT ≤ 3 x ULN (except subjects with hepatic metastasis, who can have AST/ALT ≤ 5 x ULN) Total Bilirubin ≤ 1.5 x ULN (except subjects with Gilbert Syndrome, who can have total bilirubin < 3.0 mg/dL)
