Study Summary

This trial is testing whether adding nivolumab to the usual treatment of encorafenib and cetuximab works better at shrinking tumors in patients with colorectal cancer that has spread or cannot be removed by surgery.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for adults with metastatic or unresectable colorectal cancer that has a BRAF mutation. They should have had one or two prior chemotherapy treatments, no severe heart conditions, and be able to swallow pills. Excluded are those with recent heart issues, uncontrolled hypertension, active infections like HIV, certain immune diseases, or who've had specific past treatments like anti-EGFR therapies.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study tests if adding Nivolumab (an immunotherapy drug) to the standard treatment of Encorafenib and Cetuximab improves outcomes in patients. It's a phase II trial aiming to see if this combination better shrinks tumors compared to the usual treatment alone.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Possible side effects include allergic reactions related to monoclonal antibodies such as skin rashes or breathing difficulties; organ inflammation; increased risk of infection due to immune system changes; and potential gastrointestinal disturbances.
