ECOG-ACRIN EA2201 (JIT – IF A POSSIBLE PATIENT IS IDENTIFIED, NOTIFY CRA ASAP AS IT WILL TAKE TIME TO OPEN TRIAL THROUGH NCORP)
This phase II trial investigates the effect of nivolumab and ipilimumab when given together with short-course radiation therapy in treating patients with rectal cancer that has spread to other places in the body (advanced). Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as nivolumab and ipilimumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Radiation therapy uses high energy x-rays to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Giving nivolumab, ipilimumab, and radiation therapy may kill more cancer cells.
