Purpose

This phase I/II trial studies the side effects and best dose of ipilimumab and nivolumab when given together with brentuximab vedotin, and how well they work in treating patients with Hodgkin lymphoma that has returned after a period of improvement or has not responded to previous treatment. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as ipilimumab and nivolumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of cancer cells to grow and spread. Brentuximab vedotin is a combining monoclonal antibody with an anticancer drug that binds to a protein on the surface of lymphoma cells called cluster of differentiation (CD)30 and may kill the cells. It is not known whether giving brentuximab vedotin and nivolumab with or without ipilimumab may kill more cancer cells.

Detailed Description

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I.

(Phase I) II. To evaluate the duration of remission (DOR) to these combinations and compare with the DOR achieved with the most recent prior systemic therapy. (Phase I) III. To evaluate the progression-free survival (PFS) and the overall survival (OS) in patients receiving the combination of brentuximab vedotin and ipilimumab, brentuximab vedotin and nivolumab, and brentuximab vedotin, ipilimumab, and nivolumab.

To further evaluate the safety and characterize the toxicity for the combinations of brentuximab vedotin and nivolumab, and brentuximab vedotin, ipilimumab, and nivolumab. (Phase II)

CORRELATIVE STUDY OBJECTIVES:

I. To evaluate the ability of these combinations to alter tumor specific T cell immunity. (Phase I) II. To evaluate the effects of these combinations on systemic immunity. (Phase I) III. To evaluate a panel of cytokine and T cell specific biomarkers from the peripheral blood as a potential immune signature of treatment response to therapy with these combinations for patients with relapsed/refractory Hodgkin lymphoma (HL). (Phase I) IV. To evaluate using gene expression profiling (GEP) a signature of response to these novel combinations of an antibody drug conjugate with immunomodulatory therapy. (Phase I) V. To evaluate the ability of these combinations to alter tumor specific T cell immunity, and circulating T cell phenotypes, in patients as a function of treatment response at multiple timepoints during therapy. (Phase II) VI. To evaluate peripheral blood cytokine profiles in responding and resistant patients at multiple timepoints during therapy. (Phase II) VII. To evaluate using GEP a signature of response versus (vs.) resistance to these novel combinations of an antibody drug conjugate with immunomodulatory therapy. (Phase II) VIII. To evaluate the influence of human gut microbiome dysbiosis on HL lymphomagenesis and the systemic immune response. (Phase II)

IMAGING CORRELATIVE STUDY OBJECTIVES:

I. To evaluate atypical response patterns with currently available response evaluation criteria. (Phase II) II. To correlate response evaluated using currently available response evaluation criteria with duration of response (PFS, event free survival [EFS], failure free survival [FFS]). (Phase II) III. To evaluate response patterns in different immunotherapy treatment schemes and correlate with historical data using chemotherapy. (Phase II) IV. To correlate imaging changes in all treatment schemes quantitatively with PFS. (Phase II)
