Phase I

What is the purpose of this trial?

This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of entinostat and nivolumab when given together with ipilimumab in treating patients with solid tumors that have spread to other places in the body and usually cannot be cured or controlled with treatment (metastatic) or that cannot be removed by surgery (unresectable) or human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-negative breast cancer that has spread from where it started to nearby tissue or lymph nodes or other parts of the body. Entinostat may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth (locally advanced/metastatic). Monoclonal antibodies, such as nivolumab and ipilimumab, may block tumor growth in different ways by targeting certain cells. Giving entinostat and nivolumab together with ipilimumab may be a better treatment in patients with solid tumors.
