Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Progression Free Survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: Up to four years ]
    To compare progression free survival of nivolumab + Brentuximab vedotin (BV) versus BV based on Blinded Independent Central Review (BICR) assessments

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Complete Response Rate (CRR) [ Time Frame: Up to four years ]
    To compare the complete response rate of nivolumab + BV versus BV based on BICR assessments

  2. Objective Response Rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: Up to four years ]
    To assess objective response rate and duration of response based on BICR

  3. Duration of response (DOR) [ Time Frame: Up to four years ]
    To assess duration of response based on BICR

  4. Duration of complete response (DOCR) [ Time Frame: Up to four years ]
    To assess duration of complete response based on BICR

  5. Overall Survival (OS) [ Time Frame: Up to four years ]
    To assess overall survival of participants treated with nivolumab + BV versus BV

  6. Progression Free Survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: Up to four years ]
    To assess PFS based on investigator assessments
