|Advanced Malignant Neoplasm Autoimmune Disease Crohn Disease Dermatomyositis Inflammatory Bowel Disease Metastatic Malignant Neoplasm Multiple Sclerosis Rheumatoid Arthritis Sjogren Syndrome Systemic Lupus Erythematosus Systemic Scleroderma Ulcerative Colitis Unresectable Malignant Neoplasm||Biological: Nivolumab||Phase 1|
I. To assess the overall safety, including the incidence of dose-limiting toxicity (DLT), and other toxicities associated with the use of the anti-programmed death 1 (PD-1) antibody nivolumab in patients with varying severity of dermatomyositis (DM)/systemic sclerosis (SSc), rheumatoid arthritis (RA), systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) (ulcerative colitis [UC] and Crohn's disease [CD]), multiple sclerosis (MS), Sjogren's syndrome [SjS], and other autoimmune diseases.
I. To determine the efficacy of nivolumab in terms of objective response rates (ORRs), progression-free survival (PFS), and overall survival (OS) in patients with cancer and DM/SSc, RA, SLE, IBD (UC and CD), MS, SjS, and other autoimmune diseases.
II. To observe and record anti-tumor activity. III. To provide dosing recommendations for anti-PD-1 antibodies based on the severity of the autoimmune disorder.
IV. To determine the impact of nivolumab on the disease severity indices for: DM/SSc, RA, SLE, IBD: UC and CD, not specified (NS), MS.
V. To perform molecular profiling assays on malignant and normal tissues, including, but not limited to, ribonucleic acid (RNA) sequencing, in order to: identify potential predictive and prognostic biomarkers beyond any genomic alteration by which treatment may be assigned, and identify resistance mechanisms using genomic deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA)- and ribonucleic acid (RNA)-based assessment platforms.
Patients receive nivolumab intravenously (IV) over 30 minutes every 4 weeks for up to 2 years in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up for 100 days.

Experimental: Treatment (nivolumab)
Patients receive nivolumab IV over 30 minutes every 4 weeks for up to 2 years in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
- Incidence of adverse events [ Time Frame: Up to 100 days ]Will be reported overall and by severity, and dose limiting toxicities will be summarized for all patients and by disease severity cohort.
- Change in disease assessments [ Time Frame: Baseline up to 100 days ]Will be summarized at each time point for each disease severity cohort.
- Overall response rate [ Time Frame: Up to 100 days ]Will be computed along with its associated exact 95% confidence interval for all patients and by disease severity cohort.
- Changes in serum chemokines and circulating immune cells over time [ Time Frame: Baseline up to 100 days ]Will be summarized and assessed using generalized linear mixed modeling.
- Gene expression in normal tissues [ Time Frame: Up to 100 days ]Will be compared with gene expression in malignant tissues based on two-sample t-test and Wilcoxon rank sum test. False discovery rate, if appropriate, will be used to control for multiple testing.
- Clinical measures of interest [ Time Frame: Up to 100 days ]The association between demographic and clinical measures of interest with overall response rate and toxicity will be evaluated using logistic regression modeling to identify potential predictors of outcomes.
