The purpose of this phase 2 study is to assess the feasibility and efficacy of neoadjuvant immunotherapy in patients with previously untreated, surgically-resectable, solid tumor brain metastases. The primary objectives of this study are to 1) assess the feasibility of neoadjuvant ipilimumab and nivolumab treatment before surgery and stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) in patients with solid tumor brain metastases as measured by the proportion of patients who have their surgery delayed or surgery never occurs, and 2) demonstrate that neoadjuvant immunotherapy will increase proliferation of circulating T-cells compared to baseline measurements. Exploratory objectives include describing patient progression free survival and overall survival, time to local and distant intracranial progression, the rate of radiation necrosis, and differences in immune expression profiles between patient arms.
