This study will compare the effects of treatment with nivolumab alone versus those of nivolumab plus the experimental drug BMS-986205. Adding BMS-986208 to nivolumab could shrink the cancer or prevent it from returning, but it could also cause side effects.

Condition Endometrial Adenocarcinoma, Endometrial Carcinosarcoma
Treatment Nivolumab, BMS- 986205

Inclusion Criteria

Subjects must have recurrent or persistent endometrial carcinoma (including: Endometrioid adenocarcinoma, serous adenocarcinoma, undifferentiated carcinoma, dedifferentiated carcinoma, clear cell adenocarcinoma, mixed epithelial carcinoma, adenocarcinoma not otherwise specified (N.O.S.), mucinous adenocarcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and transitional cell carcinoma) or endometrial carcinosarcoma). Histologic documentation of diagnosis of carcinoma is required
All patients must have measurable disease. Measurable disease is defined by RECIST (version 1.1). Measurable disease is defined as at least one lesion that can be accurately measured in at least one dimension (longest diameter to be recorded). Each lesion must be 10 mm when measured by CT, MRI or caliper measurement by clinical exam; or 20 mm when measured by chest x-ray. Lymph nodes must be 15 mm in short axis when measured by CT or MRI
Patients must have at least one "target lesion" to be used to assess response on this protocol as defined by RECIST version 1.1 (Section 12.0). Tumors within a previously irradiated field will be designated as "non-target" lesions unless progression is documented, or a biopsy is obtained to confirm persistence at least 90 days following completion of radiation therapy
Females, age 18 years and life expectancy of 12 weeks
Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0 or 1
Resolution of (non-laboratory) adverse effects of recent surgery, radiotherapy, or chemotherapy to Grade 1 prior to first study treatment (with the exception of alopecia or neuropathy)
Patients must have had one prior platinum-based chemotherapeutic regimen for management of endometrial carcinoma or carcinosarcoma. Initial treatment may include chemotherapy, chemotherapy and radiation therapy, and/or consolidation/maintenance therapy. Chemotherapy administered in conjunction with primary radiation as a radiosensitizer WILL be counted as a systemic chemotherapy regimen
Patients are allowed to have up to three prior cytotoxic regimens for management of recurrent or persistent disease. Hormonal therapies will not count toward the prior regimen limit
Adequate normal organ and marrow function defined by the following laboratory results obtained within 14 days prior to first treatment
Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) 1.5 x 10^9/L (> 1500 per mm^3)
Platelet 75 x 10^9/L (>100,000 per mm^3)
Serum bilirubin 1.5 x institutional upper limit of normal (ULN). (Unless Gilbert's Syndrome, for which Bilirubin 3 x institutional upper limit of normal (ULN), without concurrent clinically significant liver disease)
AST (SGOT)/ALT (SGPT) 3 x institutional upper limit of normal (ULN) unless liver metastases are present, in which case it must be 5x ULN
Serum creatinine 1.5 x institutional upper limit of normal (ULN)
Female subjects must either be of non-reproductive potential (i.e., post-menopausal by history: 60 years old and no menses for 1 year without an alternative medical cause and confirmed by FSH levels; OR history of hysterectomy, OR history of bilateral tubal ligation, OR history of bilateral oophorectomy) or must have a negative serum pregnancy test upon study entry
Archival tissue, 15-20 unstained FFPE slides, must be available. If archival tissue is not available, patient will be required to undergo
Subject is willing and able to comply with the protocol for the duration of the study including undergoing treatment, procedures (including on-treatment biopsy), and scheduled visits and examinations including follow up
Patients must have been enrolled or agree to consent to the companion genomic profiling study MSKCC IRB# 12-245 - Patients must have signed an approved informed consent and authorization permitting release of personal information
Women of childbearing potential (WOCBP) must agree to follow instructions for method(s) of contraception (See IDO Appendix 1) for the duration of treatment with study treatment(s) plus 5 months post-treatment completion

Exclusion Criteria

Involvement in the planning and/or conduct of the study (applies to both Bristol-Myers Squibb staff and/or staff at the study site)
Known MMR-deficient patient and / or MSI-H will be excluded. Results of IMPACT #12-245 do not need to have resulted prior to enrollment. If results of IMPACT #12-245 shows MSI-H and / or MMR-deficient and patient has already started study, patient can continue on treatment
Prior enrollment in the present study or another clinical study with receipt of an investigational product during the last 4 weeks
Any previous treatment with an IDO, PD-1 or PD-L1 inhibitor, or any anti-CTLA4
History of another primary malignancy except for
Malignancy treated with curative intent and with no known active disease 3 years before the first dose of study drug and of low potential risk for recurrence
Adequately treated non-melanoma skin cancer or lentigo maligna without evidence of disease
Adequately treated carcinoma in situ without evidence of disease (e.g., cervical cancer in situ)
Adequately treated stage 1 breast cancer
Receipt of the last dose of anti-cancer therapy (chemotherapy, immunotherapy, targeted therapy, biologic therapy, tumor embolization, radiation therapy, monoclonal antibodies) < 21 days prior to the first dose of study drug. Receipt of the last dose of hormonal therapy within < 7 days prior to the first dose of study drug
Mean QT interval corrected for heart rate (QTc) 470 ms calculated from 3 electrocardiograms (ECGs) using Fridericia formula
Less than 4 weeks since the patient underwent any major surgery (e.g., major: laparotomy, laparoscopy) There is no delay in treatment for minor procedures (e.g., central venous access catheter placement)
Current or prior use of immunosuppressive medication within 28 days before the first dose of BMS-986205 and Nivolumab, with the exceptions of intranasal and inhaled corticosteroids or systemic corticosteroids at physiological doses, which are not to exceed 10 mg/day of prednisone, or an equivalent corticosteroid. Patients who have received acute, low dose, systemic immunosuppressant medications (e.g., dexamethasone for nausea or steroids as CT scan contrast premedication) may be enrolled
Any prior Grade 3 immune-related adverse event (irAE) while receiving any previous immunotherapy agent, or any unresolved irAE > Grade 1

Subjects with palliative diverting ileostomy or colostomy are allowed if they have been symptom free for more than 3 months
