Nivolumab and Ibrutinib for Relapsed or Refractory Central Nervous System Lymphoma
MD Anderson Study Status
This phase II trial studies the side effects and how well nivolumab and ibrutinib works in treating patients with central nervous system lymphoma that has come back or does not respond to treatment. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as nivolumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Ibrutinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving nivolumab and ibrutinib may work better in treating patients with central nervous system lymphoma.
