Description

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of an experimental drug called nivolumab in combination with brentuximab vedotin.  Nivolumab is an antibody that is being tested to see if it will allow the body's immune system to work against tumor cells.  Brentuximab vedotin is an antibody-drug conjugate.  The antibody part of the drug binds to CD30 which often occurs on diseased cells but rarely on normal tissues.
