Study Summary

This trial is studying CMP-001 in combination with nivolumab compared to nivolumab monotherapy as a first-line treatment for unresectable or metastatic melanoma. The primary objective of Phase 2 of the study is to determine the confirmed ORR for treatment with CMP-001/nivolumab vs nivolumab monotherapy.

Eligible Conditions
  • Melanoma
  • Unresectable Melanoma
  • Metastatic Melanoma
  • melanoma

Eligibility Criteria

Age 18+ · All Participants · 10 Total Inclusion Criteria

Mark “Yes” if the following statements are true for you:
The patient's platelet count is greater than or equal to 100,000 per millimeter cubed.
The subject must have a recent biopsy (within 90 days before the first dose of study treatment) that can provide tissue from a core or excisional biopsy; a fine needle aspirate is not sufficient.
A hemoglobin concentration of 9 grams or greater per deciliter is required.
Cancer that is too widespread to be surgically removed, as confirmed by a tissue examination
At least 1 lesion that can be treated with injections of IT drugs.
One or more lesions that are at least 1 cm in diameter, that are not intended for injection with CMP-001, and can be followed using the RECIST v1.1 criteria.
A neutrophil count of 1500 or more per millimeter is considered high.
A white blood cell count of 2000/mm3 or more is considered high.
No subject with Gilbert disease had a total bilirubin concentration greater than 3 × the ULN.
