Cisplatin, Romidepsin and Nivolumab in Treating Patients with Locally Recurrent or Metastatic Triple Negative Breast Cancer
This phase I / II trial studies the side effects and best dose of romidepsin when given together with cisplatin and nivolumab, to see how well they work in treating patients with triple negative breast cancer that has come back at or near the same place as the original (primary) tumor, usually after a period of time during which the cancer could not be detected or spread to other parts of the body. Romidepsin may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Romidepsin may also help cisplatin work better. Monoclonal antibodies, such as nivolumab, may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Giving romidepsin together with cisplatin and nivolumab may be a better treatment for tripe negative breast cancer.
