This is a multicenter, open-label, Phase 1 study of orally administered CB-5083 in adult subjects with advanced metastatic solid tumors. The study will be conducted in 2 parts: an initial Dose Escalation Phase (Phase 1a) of CB-5083 in subjects with advanced metastatic solid tumors who have progressed or are non-responsive to available therapies and for which no standard therapy exists, followed by a Dose Expansion Phase (Phase 1b) which will include 1 to 4 arms: one arm in subjects with RAS mutated mCRC; optionally, at sponsors discretion, 3 additional arms may be added for subjects with advanced RCC, advanced pNET, or solid tumors with mutations in the RAS-MAPK pathway.

Official Title

A Phase 1, Open-Label, Dose Escalation and Dose Expansion Study Evaluating the Safety, Pharmacokinetics, Pharmacodynamics, and Clinical Effects of Orally Administered CB-5083 in Subjects With Advanced Solid Tumors


The objectives of the Dose Escalation Phase are to determine the safety, tolerability, PK and pharmacodynamic profiles, the MTD and/or RP2D, and the effect of fed vs. fasted state on the bioavailability of orally administered CB-5083. The objectives of the dose expansion phase are to confirm the safety and tolerability of the RP2D, to further assess the PK and pharmacodynamic profiles and to evaluate the preliminary anti-tumor activity of CB-5083 in subjects with tumors for which there is biologic plausibility of unique sensitivity to CB-5083 mechanism of action (MOA) based on pre-clinical data. The objectives of the Food Effect Stage is to determine the effect of fed vs. fasted state on the bioavailability of orally administered CB-5083.

    15. Food Effect Stage - willing and able to ingest a standard meal
    16. Phase 1b All Expansion Cohorts - Evidence of measurable disease per RECIST, v1.1.Measurable disease is defined as a lesion that can be accurately measured in at least 1 dimension (longest diameter to be recorded) with a minimum size of 10 mm by computed tomography (CT) scan;
    17. Phase 1b All Expansion Cohorts - Prior treatment with embolization or ablative therapies is allowed if measurable disease remains outside of the treated area or if there is definitive progression in the treated lesions. There is no limit on the number of prior procedures;
    18. Phase 1b Dose Expansion RAS Mutated mCRC Arm only - Histologically confirmed colorectal cancer with a K-RAS or N-RAS mutation in exons 2,3 and 4 that is metastatic or unresectable;
    19. Phase 1b Dose Expansion RAS Mutated mCRC Arm only - At least 2 prior systemic therapies for the treatment of metastatic colorectal cancer. Neo-adjuvant and adjuvant therapies may not be counted as part of the prior therapy requirements. At least 7 subjects should be naïve to treatment with regorafenib;
    20. Phase 1b Optional Dose Expansion Advanced RCC Arm only - Histologically confirmed metastatic renal cell carcinoma;
    21. Phase 1b Optional Dose Expansion Advanced RCC Arm only - Must have received 2 prior therapies for metastatic RCC, including a vascular endothelial growth factor receptor(VEGFR) tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) and an immune checkpoint inhibitor (ie anti-PD-1) (if approved and available for commercial use in the local country). At least 7 subjects should be naïve to treatment with prior inhibitors of mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) (eg. everolimus);
    22. Phase 1b Optional Dose Expansion pNET Arm only - Histologically confirmed low-grade or intermediate-grade, unresectable or metastatic pNET tumor for which standard therapy does not exist or is no longer effective. Functional and non-functional tumors can be included;
    23. Phase 1b Optional Dose Expansion RAS-MAPK Pathway Mutation Arm only - Histologically confirmed malignancy with a RAS-MAPK pathway mutation that is metastatic or unresectable and for which standard therapy does not exist or is no longer effective.At least 10 subjects with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) are to be enrolled in this arm.

    1. Any prior treatment (with the exception of somatostatin analogues, which are allowed before and during the study in pNET subjects at the investigator discretion in pNET subjects) such as chemotherapy, immunomodulatory drug therapy, anti-neoplastic hormonal therapy (unless dose has been stable for 3 months prior to Baseline and will remain stable during the study), immunosuppressive therapy, or corticosteroids (unless administered to prevent contrast material reactions during radiographic procedures)received within the past 28 days or 5 half-lives, whichever is shorter;
    2. Presence of an acute or chronic toxicity resulting from prior chemotherapy, with the exception of alopecia, that has not resolved to ≤ grade 1, as determined by NCI CTCAE v 4.0 (;

    4. Subjects with primary brain tumors or known central nervous system (CNS) metastases;
    5. Major surgery < 28 days from the start of treatment (major surgery is defined as a procedure requiring general anesthesia);
