Brief Title: Study to Evaluate the Efficacy/Safety of IPI-549 in Combination With Nivolumab in Patients With Advanced Urothelial Carcinoma (MARIO-275)

A Phase 2, Multicenter, Randomized, Double-Blind, Active-Control Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of Nivolumab Administered in Combination With IPI-549 Compared to Nivolumab Monotherapy in the Treatment of Patients With Immune Therapy-Naïve, Advanced Urothelial Carcinoma


  • Org Study ID: IPI-549-02
  • Secondary ID: N/A
  • NCT ID: NCT03980041
  • Sponsor: Infinity Pharmaceuticals, Inc.


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.


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.
