Summary

The purpose of this study is to explore any changes in tumors after adult subjects (ages 18+) who have advanced pancreatic or colorectal cancer receive an immunotherapy drug, called BMS-813160, alone or together with another immunotherapy drug, called nivolumab or chemotherapy. BMS-813160 and nivolumab belongs to a class of drugs called immunotherapies. ?Immuno' in ?immunotherapy' refers to the immune system. The immune system is the body's natural defense against illnesses like colds, infections, and cancer. There is no defined length of time for this study. The exact time commitment will depend on several factors, such as availability to come for appointments, cancer's response to the study drugs, reaction to the study drugs, and the sponsor's decision of whether to continue the study.

Summary

TheraSphere® is a humanitarian use device (HUD) for treating cancer that originates in the liver. TheraSphere® consists of millions of tiny glass beads containing radioactive yttrium-90. The glass radioactive beads (20-30 micrometers in diameter ? about a third of the width of a human hair) are delivered directly to the liver tumors. It can be used to downstage tumors to become eligible for surgery or transplantation. It is also the only medical device approved in the United States to treat primary liver cancer patients with portal vein thrombosis (PVT). TheraSphere® has been approved as an HUD based upon its safety and probable benefit.
