Brief Summary

The purpose of this study is to measure the effect of IPI-549 in combination with nivolumab when compared to nivolumab monotherapy in advanced urothelial cancer patients.

Detailed Description

Study IPI-549-02 is a multi-national, prospective, randomized, active-control Phase II trial
to evaluate the efficacy and safety of IPI 549 administered in combination with nivolumab
compared to nivolumab monotherapy.

The study will enroll approximately 160 checkpoint-naïve, advanced urothelial cancer patients
who have progressed or recurred following treatment with platinum-based chemotherapy.
Patients will be randomized 2:1 to receive intravenous (IV) nivolumab 480 mg every 4 weeks
(Q4W) in combination with oral (PO) IPI 549 40 mg once daily (QD) or IV nivolumab 480 mg Q4W
in combination with placebo PO QD.

Eligible patients who have confirmed progression of disease during treatment with nivolumab
monotherapy may crossover to the combination treatment arm.
