A Study of Nivolumab Plus Brentuximab Vedotin in Patients Between 5 and 30 Years Old, With Hodgkin's Lymphoma (cHL), Relapsed or Refractory From First Line Treatment

Multiple Cancer Types

The purpose of this study is to determine whether nivolumab plus brentuximab vedotin (followed by brentuximab vedotin plus bendamustine in patient with suboptimal response) is safe and effective in treating patients with Hodgkin's lymphoma (cHL). Eligible patients are children, adolescents, and young adults relapsed or refractory to first line.

Immunotherapy (Nivolumab or Brentuximab Vedotin) Plus Combination Chemotherapy in Treating Patients with Newly Diagnosed Stage III-IV Classic Hodgkin Lymphoma

Multiple Cancer Types

This randomized phase III trial compares immunotherapy drugs (nivolumab or brentuximab vedotin) when given with combination chemotherapy in treating patients with newly diagnosed stage III or IV classic Hodgkin lymphoma. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as nivolumab, may help the body’s immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Brentuximab vedotin is a monoclonal antibody, brentuximab, linked to a toxic agent called vedotin. Brentuximab attaches to cancer cells in a targeted way and delivers vedotin to kill them. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as doxorubicin, vinblastine, and dacarbazine, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. The addition of nivolumab or brentuximab vedotin to combination chemotherapy may shrink the cancer or extend the time without disease symptoms coming back.
