HM2017-24 : Phase I/II Study of Nivolumab in Combination with Ruxolitinib in Relapsed or Refractory Classical Hodgkin Lymphoma: BTCRC-HEM-027


Participants who take part in this study will receive a study drug called ruxolitinib with a standard drug called nivolumab. The study is being done to measure the percentage of tumor (lymphoma) that shrinks after receiving ruxolitinib in combination with nivolumab. This study will also measure the length of time the lymphoma is inactive and how safe the combination is to administer to participants. Ruxolitinib is a pill that is taken twice every day. Nivolumab is given as an infusion in the clinic once every 4 weeks.
