Phase 1/2 Study of the Combination of a Mouse Monoclonal Antibody to OX40 and Ipilimumab in Patients With Metastatic Melanoma
- Patients with unresectable or metastatic melanoma, for whom treatment with Ipilimumab
- Radiologically measurable disease by immune-related Response Criteria
- ECOG performance status of 0-1.
- Anticipated lifespan greater than 12 weeks.
- At the time of day 1 of the study, patients must be at least 3 weeks since surgery
- At the time of day 1 of the study, patients with brain metastases must be
asymptomatic and, at least 8 weeks without tumor progression after any whole brain
radiotherapy, at least 4 weeks since craniotomy and resection or stereotactic
radiosurgery, at least 3 weeks without new brain metastases as evidenced by MRI/CT

- Any contraindications for ipilimumab/Yervoy®.
- Prior exposure to ipilimumab/Yervoy®
- Prior exposure to Anti-OX40 or a mouse monoclonal antibody.
- History of severe allergic reactions to any unknown allergens or anti-OX40 Autoimmune
disease except for autoimmune thyroiditis or vitiligo.
- Unresolved immune related adverse events following prior biological therapy.
- Metastatic disease to the central nervous system for which other therapeutic options,
including radiotherapy, may be available.
- Known immunodeficiency or HIV, Hepatitis B or Hepatitis C positivity.
- Other serious illnesses (e.g., serious infections requiring antibiotics).
- Participation in any other clinical trial involving another investigational agent
within 4 weeks prior to day 1 of the study.
- Mental impairment that may compromise the ability to give informed consent and comply
with the requirements of the study.
- Lack of availability for immunological and clinical follow-up assessments.
- Women who are breast feeding or pregnant as evidenced by positive serum pregnancy
test (minimum sensitivity 25 IU/L or equivalent units of HCG) done within 72 hours of
- Women of childbearing potential not using a medically acceptable means of
contraception for the duration of the study.
- Any condition that, in the clinical judgment of the treating physician, is likely to
prevent the patient from complying with any aspect of the protocol or that may put
