A Phase 2 Open-Label Study of Nivolumab Combined With Cabozantinib in Subjects With Advanced or Metastatic Non-Clear Cell Renal Cell Carcinoma (CA209-9KU)

The purpose of this study is to compare any good and bad effects of using a combination of
nivolumab (Opdivo®) and cabozantinib (Cabometyx®) in people with metastatic kidney cancer.

Inclusion Criteria:

- Pathologic or histologically confirmed unresectable advanced or metastatic nccRCC

- 0 or 1 prior systemic therapies, including treatment in the adjuvant setting

- Availability of a representative formalin fixed, paraffin embedded tumor specimen or
fresh frozen tissue specimen that enables the definitive diagnosis of RCC, accompanied
by an associated pathology report. Specimens can be collected by surgical resection or
biopsy of the primary tumor or biopsy or resection of a metastatic lesion.

- Measurable disease, as defined by RECIST 1.1

- Age ≥18 years

treatments, unless adverse events (AE(s)) are clinically nonsignificant and/or stable
on supportive therapy.

results obtained within 14 days prior to the first study treatment:

2 weeks prior to Cycle 1, Day 1)

- Serum albumin ≥ 2.8 g/dl

- Patients with known Gilbert disease who have serum bilirubin level ≤ 3 x ULN may be

therapeutic anticoagulation; patients receiving therapeutic anticoagulation should be
on a stable dose.

- For women who are not postmenopausal (12 months of amenorrhea) or surgically sterile
(absence of ovaries and/or uterus): agreement to use two adequate methods of

accepted methods of contraception (eg, barrier methods, including male condom, female
condom, or diaphragm with spermicidal gel) during the course of the study and for 5
months after the last dose of study treatment for females and 7 months for males.

- Female subjects of childbearing potential must not be pregnant at screening. Females
of childbearing potential are defined as premenopausal females capable of becoming
pregnant (ie, females who have had any evidence of menses in the past 12 months, with
the exception of those who had prior hysterectomy).

However, women who have been amenorrheic for 12 or more months are still considered to be
of childbearing potential if the amenorrhea is possibly due to prior chemotherapy,
antiestrogens, low body weight, ovarian suppression or other reasons.

- Capable of understanding and complying with the protocol requirements and must have
signed the informed consent document.

Exclusion Criteria:

- Prior treatment with an immunotherapy agent including high dose IL-2, anti-CTLA-4,
anti-PD1, and anti-PD-L1 agents

other investigational agents within 4 weeks of treatment start

- Known malignancies of the brain or spinal cord or leptomeningeal disease

- Patients requiring pain medication must be on a stable regimen at study entry

prednisone equivalents) or other immunosuppressive medications within 14 days prior to
first dose of study drug. Inhaled steroids and adrenal replacement steroids > 10 mg
daily prednisone equivalents are allowed in the absence of autoimmune disease

- Uncontrolled pleural effusion, pericardial effusion, or ascites requiring recurrent
drainage procedures (once monthly or more frequently)

serum calcium ≥ ULN) or symptomatic hypercalcemia requiring continued use of
bisphosphonate therapy or denosumab
