A Phase 1/2 Study of Nivolumab in Children Adolescents and Young Adults With Recurrent or Refractory Solid Tumors as a Single Agent and in Combination With Ipilimumab

Overview

The purpose of this study is to determine the side effects and best dose of nivolumab when given with or without ipilimumab to see how well they work in treating younger patients with solid tumors or sarcomas that have come back (recurrent) or do not respond to treatment (refractory).

Description

This phase I/II trial studies the side effects and best dose of nivolumab when given with or without ipilimumab to see how well they work in treating younger patients with solid tumors or sarcomas that have come back (recurrent) or do not respond to treatment (refractory).
