Metronomic Oral Vinorelbine Plus Anti-PD-L1/Anti-CTLA4 ImmunothErapy in Patients With Advanced Solid Tumours

Study Purpose

This is a phase I/II national, multicentre, multiple cohort, prospective open-label, non-randomised and non-comparative study, to evaluate the safety and activity of metronomic oral vinorelbine associated with durvalumab + tremelimumab combination immunotherapy for the treatment of advanced solid tumours.

Recruitment Criteria

Accepts Healthy Volunteers

Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms

Study Type

An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.

An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.

Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

Eligible Ages 18 Years and Over
Gender All

The following are exceptions to this criterion:
  • - Patients with vitiligo or alopecia.
  • - Patients with hypothyroidism (e.g., following Hashimoto syndrome) stable on hormone replacement therapy.
  • - Any chronic skin condition that does not require systemic therapy.
  • - Patients without active disease in the last 5 years may be included but only after consultation with the study physician.
  • - Patients with celiac disease controlled by diet alone.
7. History of allogeneic organ transplantation. 8. History or evidence of active, non-infectious pneumonitis. 9. Active infection including tuberculosis (clinical evaluation that includes clinical history, physical examination and radiographic findings, and tuberculosis testing in line with local practice), hepatitis B (known positive hepatitis B virus (HBV) surface antigen (HBsAg) result), hepatitis C, or human immunodeficiency virus (positive HIV 1/2 antibodies). Patients with a past or resolved HBV infection (defined as the presence of hepatitis B core antibody (anti-HBc) and absence of HBsAg) are eligible. Patients positive for hepatitis C (HCV) antibody are eligible only if polymerase chain reaction is negative for HCV RNA. 10. Current or prior use of immunosuppressive medication within 14 days before the first dose of durvalumab or tremelimumab. The following are exceptions to this criterion:
  • - Intranasal, inhaled, topical steroids, or local steroid injections (e.g., intra articular injection) - Systemic corticosteroids at physiologic doses ≤10 mg/day of prednisone or its equivalent.
