This research study is a Phase II clinical trial. Cancers are recognized by the immune system, and under some circumstances,the immune system may control or even eliminate tumors. An antibody is a natural protein made by our immune system that binds other proteins and molecules to fight infection and its ill effects.
Nivolumab is an experimental antibody drug that may make the immune response more active against Cancer. Bevacizumab is an antibody that works by stopping the formation of blood vessels.
The FDA (the U.S. Food and Drug Administration) has not approved Nivolumab for Relapsed Ovarian, Fallopian Tube Or Peritoneal Cancer but it has been approved for other uses.
Bevacizumab has been FDA approved when used together with chemotherapy for the treatment of Ovarian, Fallopian Tube, Or Primary Peritoneal Cancer that has returned within 6 months of a chemotherapy that contains a platinum drug.
The combination of Nivolumab and Bevacizumab has not been approved by the FDA in any setting.

The purpose of this study is to test the effectiveness (how well the drug works), safety and tolerability of an investigational drug called nivolumab (also known as BMS-936558) in glioblas...
The purpose of the study is to compare the efficacy and safety of nivolumab administered alone versus bevacizumab in patients diagnosed with recurrent glioblastoma (a type of brain cancer,...
This is an open label, phase I study to test for maximum tolerated dose (MTD) or recommended phase II dose (RP2D) of the combination of nivolumab and bevacizumab. The study will use a 3+3 ...
RATIONALE: Monoclonal antibodies, such as bevacizumab, can block cancer growth in different ways. Some block the ability of cancer cells to grow and spread. Others find cancer cells and he...
There is a paucity of data on the histopathological response of peritoneal tumor deposits from colorectal cancer to neoadjuvant chemotherapy. Particularly, no prospective assessment of che...
To evaluate the efficacy of nivolumab and comparison with dacarbazine (DTIC) on peritoneal carcinomatosis of malignant melanoma in mouse model.
Nivolumab is approved for the treatment of many cancers. This meta-analysis was conducted to determine the risk of hepatotoxicity with nivolumab therapy.
The CheckMate 141 trial found that nivolumab improved survival for patients with recurrent or metastatic head and neck cancer (HNC). Despite the improved survival, nivolumab is much more expensive tha...
Although systemic chemotherapy has been improved, peritoneal carcinomatosis remains a factor of poor prognosis in patients with colorectal cancer. In order to achieve a higher drug concentration in th...
Although thoracic ablative therapies are generally safe procedures, fatal complications can occur. Bevacizumab is a standard-of-care treatment along with chemotherapy for metastatic colorectal cancer....
Portable peritoneal dialysis using the continuous (24 hours a day, 7 days a week) presence of peritoneal dialysis solution in the peritoneal cavity except for periods of drainage and instillation of fresh solution.
Disorder characterized by a wide range of structural changes in PERITONEUM, resulting from fibrogenic or inflammatory processes. Peritoneal fibrosis is a common complication in patients receiving PERITONEAL DIALYSIS and contributes to its gradual decrease in efficiency.
Tumors or cancer of the PERITONEUM.
Natural openings in the subdiaphragmatic lymphatic plexus in the PERITONEUM, delimited by adjacent mesothelial cells. Peritoneal stomata constitute the principal pathways for the drainage of intraperitoneal contents from the PERITONEAL CAVITY to the LYMPHATIC SYSTEM.
