Ivosidenib (AG-120) With Nivolumab in IDH1 Mutant Tumors

We have identified IDH1 mutations as mediating the exclusion of immune cells in tumors. Ivosidenib is an IDH1 inhibitor. We hypothesize that blocking IDH1 will enhance cancer immunotherapy (nivolumab) in settings where immunotherapy normally doesn’t work. Approximately 10-15% of patients with cholangiocarcinomas have tumors with IDH1 mutations.

Phase Ib/II Trial of Nal-Irinotecan and Nivolumab as Second-Line Treatment in Patients With Advanced Biliary Tract Cancer

All patients on this study receive the chemotherapy combination of 5-FU, leucovorin and nanoliposomal irinotecan which has shown efficacy in pancreatic cancer (and is FDA approved). In addition, this trial adds immunotherapy (nivolumab) to this chemotherapy regimen to leverage the synergism of chemo-immunotherapy.

A Phase 2 Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of Adoptive Transfer of Autologous Tumor Infiltrating Lymphocytes in Patients with Locally Advanced, Recurrent, or Metastatic Biliary Tract Cancers

This Phase 2 study will be conducted in conjunction with the companion harvest protocol protocol in patients with measurable disease who have lesions that can be resected or biopsied for Tumor Infiltrating Lymphocyte(TIL) growth. The Treatment Phase begins once the cells exceed the cell growth and potency requirements in the companion protocol.
