Randomized Phase-II Study of Nivolumab Plus Ipilimumab vs. Standard of Care in Untreated and Advanced Non-clear Cell RCC


Brief description of study

SUNNIFORECAST (Sunitinib vs. Nivolumab + Ipilimumab as First line treatment Of REnal cell CAncer of non-clear cell SubTypes) is a Phase II, randomized, open-label investigator initiated trial (IIT) of Nivolumab (BMS-936558) combined with Ipilimumab vs standard of care in subjects with previously untreated and advanced (unresectable or metastatic) non-clear cell renal cell carcinoma (nccRCC).

Detailed Study Description

SUNNIFORECAST (Sunitinib vs. Nivolumab + Ipilimumab as First line treatment Of REnal cell CAncer of non-clear cell SubTypes) is a Phase II, randomized, open-label investigator initiated trial (IIT) of Nivolumab (BMS-936558) combined with Ipilimumab vs standard of care in subjects with previously untreated and advanced (unresectable or metastatic) non-clear cell renal cell carcinoma (nccRCC). In the Phase I setting, Nivolumab combined with Ipilimumab has demonstrated substantially greater clinical activity, as measured by objective response rate (ORR), than either agent alone in metastatic RCC (mRCC). Given the durability of responses associated with immunotherapies, Nivolumab combined with Ipilimumab is hypothesized to lead to greater clinical benefit, as measured by overall survival (OS) rate at 12 months as primary endpoint and OS at 6 months and 18 months, progression-free survival (PFS), overall survival (OS) and overall response rate (ORR) as secondary endpoints compared to standard of care in this patient population. This study will allow for direct comparison of OS rate at 12 months between both arms.
