Brief Summary:
To date, the majority of clinical trials on checkpoint inhibitors have tested these agents as monotherapy, and the next logical step is to evaluate rational therapeutic associations. The aim of the NiCOL study is to assess the safety of nivolumab in association with chemoradiation therapy and to gain initial insight into its efficacy in association with the current standard of care, including chemoradiation.

MedlinePlus related topics: Cervical Cancer

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Nivolumab + radiochemotherapy
5 weeks of radiochemotherapy + nivolumab followed by 5 months of nivolumab alone
Drug: Nivolumab Injection
2 possible doses : flat dose 240 mg q2 weeks or 1mg/kg q2 weeks

Drug: Cisplatin
40 mg/m2, once a week during radiotherapy

Radiation: radiotherapy

Intensity-modulated radiation therapy (including volumetric-modulated arc therapy and tomography) will be used. A dose of 45 Gy will be delivered to the pelvis in 25 fractions of 1.8 Gy using a 6-MV photon energy.

An additional dose of 54 Gy in 25 fractions of 2.16 Gy may be delivered to invaded lymph nodes using SIB-IMRT.

An additional lateral pelvic dose may be delivered if coverage of the target volumes is judged insufficient. The volumes, doses and techniques will be those usually used in each center.





Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. rate of occurrence of dose-limiting toxicity (DLT) [ Time Frame: within 11 weeks after the initiation of treatment. ]

    DLT is defined as any of the following treatment-related adverse events or laboratory abnormalities, graded according to National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (NCI-CTCAE) version 4.0:

    • non-hematological toxicity ≥ grade 3;
    • immune-related adverse event ≥ grade 3;
    • symptomatic immune-related adverse event ≥ grade 2 resistant to optimal supportive care for > 7 days;
    • dosing delay in RT ≥ 1 week due to toxicity related to nivolumab, chemotherapy or RT;
    • colitis or diarrhea ≥ grade 3.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Objective Response Rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: after the end of RT and before brachytherapy and again up to 2 months after brachytherapy ]
    ORR is defined as the proportion of all subjects whose best response is either a complete response or a partial response.

  2. Progression Free Survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    PFS is defined as the length of time from the start of treatment to disease progression or death, regardless of the cause of death

  3. Disease Free Survival (DFS) [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    DFS is defined as the length of time from the start of complete response to the time of relapse from complete response. DFS applies only to patients in complete response.

  4. Incidence of Serious Adverse Events (SAEs) to assess the overall safety profile of the association of nivolumab and pelvic radio-chemotherapy [ Time Frame: from the first intake of the IMP until 100 days after the last intake of the IMP ]
  5. Incidence of Adverse Events (AEs) to assess the overall safety profile of the association of nivolumab and pelvic radio-chemotherapy [ Time Frame: from the first intake of the IMP until 100 days after the last intake of the IMP ]
  6. validation of molecular alterations detected by molecular analyses [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    Retrospective exome, RNA and targeted sequencing analyses will be performed on all patients treated and for whom tumor samples are available.

  7. ctDNA heterogeneity [ Time Frame: baseline, at Weeks 3, 6 and 12 and every 12 weeks up to Week 104 ]
    Retrospective exome and targeted sequencing analyses will be performed on all patients treated and for whom tissue samples are available at the different timepoints

  8. tumor microenvironment description [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    phenotypic analysis of the different components of the tumor microenvironment using various technologies

  9. tumor PD-L1 immunohistochemistry [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
