          -  Be willing to comply with clinical trial instructions and requirement, including
             mandatory biopsies

          -  Dose escalation phase: Patients must have a histologically confirmed metastatic and/or
             locally advanced high grade sarcoma

          -  Dose expansion phase: Patients must have a histologically confirmed metastatic and/or
             locally undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma, myxofibrosarcoma, leiomyosarcoma, or

          -  Adequate performance status: ECOG 0 or 1/KPS 100-70%

          -  Patients must have at least one prior line of systemic therapy (e.g. chemotherapy,
             immunotherapy, targeted or biological therapy) for their sarcoma. Prior neoadjuvant
             and/or adjuvant therapy will count regardless of when it was completed. Treatment
             naïve patients can enroll if they refuse standard of care systemic chemotherapy.

          -  Presence of measurable disease per RECIST v1.1. Target lesions must not be chosen from

        or CrCl):

        x institutional ULN

        is within therapeutic range of intended use of anticoagulants

          -  Women of childbearing potential (defined as a sexually mature female who has not
             undergone a hysterectomy or bilateral oophorectomy or who has not been naturally
             postmenopausal for at least 24 consecutive months) must have a negative urine or serum
             pregnancy test at screening at ≤ 72 hours prior to day 1 of study treatment. If the
             urine pregnancy test if positive or cannot be confirmed as negative, a serum pregnancy
             test will be required

          -  Male and female patients of childbearing potential must be willing to use a highly
             effective method of contraception, for the course of the study through 7 months after
             the last dose of study medication. Abstinence is acceptable if this is the usual
             lifestyle and preferred contraception for the patient

        Exclusion Criteria:

          -  History of unstable or deteriorating cardiovascular disease within the previous 6
             months prior to screening including but not limited to the following:

             by imaging for at least four weeks prior to the first dose of trial treatment and any
             neurologic symptoms have returned to baseline), have no evidence of new or enlarging
             brain metastases, and are not using steroids for at least 7 day prior to trial

               -  intranasal, inhaled, topical steroids, or local steroid injection (e.g.,
                  intra-articular injection)

               -  Systemic corticosteroids at physiologic doses 2 weeks) including oral steroid

             drugs or biological agents used for treatment of autoimmune diseases) in past 2 years
             prior to enrollment. Replacement therapy (e.g., thyroxine for hypothyroidism, insulin
             for diabetes or physiologic corticosteroid replacement therapy for adrenal or
             pituitary insufficiency) is not considered a form of systemic treatment for autoimmune

             is not controlled

          -  Patients known to be positive for active Hepatitis B (HBsAg reactive with detectable
             HBV DNA), or Hepatitis C (HCV RNA (qualitative) is detected)

             ° Patients with chronic hepatitis B (positive HBsAg and/or HBcAb and negative HBV DNA
             by PCR) are eligible for this study if deemed safe by a gastroenterologist

          -  Patients who have received a live vaccine within 30 days of the start date of the
             planned study therapy. Note: Seasonal influenza vaccines for injection are generally
             inactivated flu vaccines and are allowed; however intranasal influenza vaccines (e.g.,
             Flu-Mist) are live attenuated vaccines, and are not allowed

          -  Has a known history of active TB (Bacillus Tuberculosis)

          -  Is currently participating and receiving study therapy or has participated in a study
             of an investigational agent and received study therapy or used an investigational
             device within 4 weeks of the first dose of treatment

          -  Has had a prior anti-cancer monoclonal antibody (mAb) within 3 weeks prior to study
             Day 1 or who has not recovered (i.e., /= 3)

          -  Other severe acute or chronic medical conditions including immune colitis,
             inflammatory bowel disease, immune pneumonitis, pulmonary fibrosis or psychiatric
             conditions including recent (within the past year) or active suicidal ideation or
             behavior; or laboratory abnormalities that may increase the risk associated with study
             participation or study treatment administration or may interfere with the
             interpretation of study results and, in the judgment of the investigator, would make
             the patient inappropriate for entry into this study
