Brentuximab Vedotin and Nivolumab With or Without Ipilimumab in Treating Patients With Relapsed or Refractory Hodgkin Lymphoma

This phase I/II trial studies the side effects and best dose of ipilimumab and nivolumab when given together with brentuximab vedotin, and how well they work in treating patients with Hodgkin lymphoma that has returned after a period of improvement or has not responded to previous treatment. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as ipilimumab and nivolumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of cancer cells to grow and spread. Brentuximab vedotin is a combining monoclonal antibody with an anticancer drug that binds to a protein on the surface of lymphoma cells called cluster of differentiation (CD)30 and may kill the cells. It is not known whether giving brentuximab vedotin and nivolumab with or without ipilimumab may kill more cancer cells.

Stanford is currently accepting patients for this trial.
