The primary purpose of this study is to characterize the safety, tolerability, and dose-limiting toxicities (DLTs) and to determine the recommended dose of relatlimab in combination with ipilimumab (for dose escalation). It is also to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and preliminary efficacy of the recommended dose of relatlimab in combination with ipilimumab versus ipilimumab monotherapy (for dose expansion).
