  8. Treatment with systemic immunostimulatory medications (including, but not limited to interferon [IFN]-α or interleukin [IL]-2 within 42 days prior to randomization.
  9. Treatment with systemic immunosuppressive medications (including, but not limited to prednisone, cyclophosphamide, azathioprine, methotrexate, thalidomide, and anti-tumor necrosis factor [anti-TNF] agents) within 14 days prior to randomization; however,
    • Patients who have received acute, low dose, systemic immunosuppressant medications (e.g., a one-time dose of dexamethasone for nausea; or chronic daily treatment with corticosteroids with a dose of ≤ 10 mg/day methylprednisolone equivalent) may be enrolled.
    • The use of inhaled corticosteroids and mineralocorticoids (e.g., fludrocortisone) for patients with orthostatic hypotension or adrenocortical insufficiency is allowed.
  10. Patients taking bisphosphonate therapy for symptomatic hypercalcemia. Use of bisphosphonate therapy for other reasons (e.g., bone metastasis or osteoporosis) is allowed.

Patients must have completed prior chemotherapy, immunotherapy, or radiation therapy at least 14 days prior to registration and all toxicity must be resolved to Grade 1 (with the exception of Grade 2 neuropathy) prior to registration. In CTCAE version 5.0 Grade 2 sensory neuropathy is defined as “moderate symptoms; limiting instrumental activities of daily living (ADLs)”

  8. Patients must not be currently enrolled in or have discontinued within the last 28 days a clinical trial involving an investigational product or non-approved use of a drug, or concurrently enrolled in any other type of medical research judged not to be scientifically or medically compatible with this study. Patients participating in surveys or observational studies are eligible to participate in this study.
  9. Patients must not be receiving chronic antiplatelet therapy, including dipyridamole or clopidogrel, or similar agents.
  10. Patients must be ≥ 18 years of age.
