Randomized Phase II Trial of Encorafenib and Cetuximab with or Without Nivolumab (NSC #748726) for Patients with Previously Treated, Microsatellite Stable, BRAFV600E Metastatic and/or Unresectable Colorectal Cancer
Study Number: S2107
This phase II trial tests whether encorafenib and cetuximab with and without nivolumab works to shrink tumors in patients with colorectal cancer that has spread to other places in the body (metastatic) or that cannot be removed by surgery (unresectable). Encorafenib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for proliferation. Cetuximab is in a class of medications called monoclonal antibodies. It binds to a protein called EGFR, which is found on some types of cancer cells. This may help keep cancer cells from growing. 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.. Giving encorafenib and cetuximab with nivolumab may be more effective at stopping the growth of new cancer cells in patients with metastatic or unresectable colorectal cancer than encorafenib and cetuximab alone.
