Study Summary

This trial is testing a combination of two different types of cancer treatment: checkpoint inhibitors and stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT). Checkpoint inhibitors help the immune system fight cancer, while SBRT is a type of radiation therapy that gives high doses of radiation to tumors with high precision. The use of checkpoint inhibitors in combination with SBRT has been suggested to improve the immune response against cancer, but this combination has not been tested in a formal clinical trial before. Up to three lesions can be treated with SBRT in this study.

Mark “Yes” if the following statements are true for you:
Subjects must be willing to comply with the study's requirements, which include scheduled visits, treatment, laboratory testing, and other obligations.
Any type of cancer that has spread to other parts of the body and that is known to respond to treatments that block certain proteins called "immune checkpoints" can be treated with these drugs, according to the FDA
The treating radiation oncologist must believe that one lesion is safe to irradiate
The patient has been treated with an immune checkpoint inhibitor for at least two months
People who participate in experiments must agree to what is happening and sign a document stating this
People over the age of 18 who are male or female.
The patient has a good performance status, with a score of 2 or lower on the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group scale.
The patient has evidence of a limited progression of their illness, as determined by their doctor, with up to five lesions
The patient must be eligible to continue to receive an immune checkpoint inhibitor after radiotherapy is complete.
At least one lesion that meets the criteria for radiation therapy, as measured by CT or MRI.
