Axitinib and Nivolumab in Treating Participants With Unresectable or Metastatic TFE/Translocation Renal Cell Carcinoma
This phase II trial studies how well axitinib and nivolumab works in treating participants with TFE/translocation renal cell carcinoma that cannot be removed by surgery or has spread to other places in the body. Axitinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. 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. Giving axitinib and nivolumab may work better in treating participants with TFE/translocation renal cell carcinoma.
