This phase I trial is to find out the best dose, possible benefits and/or side effects of magrolimab in combination with dinutuximab in treating patients with neuroblastoma that has come back (relapsed) or does not respond to treatment (refractory) or relapsed osteosarcoma. Magrolimab and dinutuximab are monoclonal antibodies that may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. The combination of magrolimab and dinutuximab may shrink or stabilize relapsed or refractory neuroblastoma or relapsed osteosarcoma. In addition, this trial may help researchers find out if it is safe to give magrolimab and dinutuximab after surgery to remove tumors from the lungs.

Official Title

Phase 1 Trial of Hu5F9-G4 (Magrolimab) Combined With Dinutuximab in Children and Young Adults With Relapsed and Refractory Neuroblastoma or Relapsed Osteosarcoma



  1. Determine the safety and tolerability of Hu5F9-G4 (magrolimab) in combination with dinutuximab in children and young adults with relapsed/refractory (R/R) neuroblastoma (NBL) or relapsed osteosarcoma.

II. Determine the recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D) of Hu5F9-G4 (magrolimab) given in combination with dinutuximab in children and young adults.

III. Determine the safety and feasibility of administering Hu5F9-G4 (magrolimab) in combination with dinutuximab to patients that undergo pulmonary resection of metastatic osteosarcoma within three weeks of surgery.


  1. Determine the pharmacokinetics (PK) of Hu5F9-G4 (magrolimab) in children and young adults.

II. Evaluate the event free survival (EFS) in two cohorts of patients who are treated at the recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D) (measurable relapsed osteosarcoma and patients with pulmonary relapse undergoing resection) and compare to historical controls.

III. Observe and record anti-tumor activity. IV. Evaluate the overall response rate (ORR) of patients in the NBL cohorts (measurable R/R NBL and evaluable R/R NBL) and osteosarcoma patients (measurable relapsed osteosarcoma) in the expansion cohorts treated at the RP2D.


  1. To explore biomarkers of response and resistance including genomic (CD47 expression, Fc receptor [FcR] polymorphisms, SIRPa polymorphisms, and KiR phenotype) and immunologic (dinutuximab human anti-chimeric antibody [HACA], magrolimab anti-drug antibody [ADA], peripheral and bone marrow immune subsets, and circulating cytokines).

II. To explore biomarkers of response in the tumor microenvironment through multiplexed ion beam imaging (MIBI) on resected tissue or archival tissues including comparison of pre- and post- treatment tumor tissues from patients undergoing staged resection of pulmonary osteosarcoma.

OUTLINE: This is a dose de-escalation study of magrolimab with fixed-dose dinutuximab followed by a dose-expansion study. Patients are assigned to 1 of 2 arms.

ARM A: Patients receive magrolimab intravenously (IV) and dinutuximab IV on study. Patients also undergo computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and blood sample collection on study, as well as bone marrow aspiration and biopsy throughout the trial.

ARM B: Patients receive magrolimab IV and dinutuximab IV on study. Patients with pulmonary osteosarcoma may undergo surgical resection of tumor after cycle 1. After surgery, these patients continue receiving magrolimab and dinutuximab on study. Patients also undergo CT, MRI, and collection of blood samples on study, as well as bone marrow aspiration and biopsy throughout the trial.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up at months 2, 4, 6, 9 and 12 and then yearly until year 5, or until disease progression.

Staged resections are permissible; investigational therapy will be administered in between resections. Patients should receive one cycle of investigational therapy in between resections but can receive additional cycles to accommodate the most appropriate surgical schedule as determined by the treating physicians. Every effort will be made to have at least half of this cohort (five of ten patients) be those requiring a staged resection
  • There is no limit to the number of prior treatment regimens. Patients must have fully recovered from the acute toxic effects of all prior chemotherapy, immunotherapy, or radiotherapy prior to initiation of study treatment. Acute toxicity of any previous therapy must have resolved to grade 1 or less or stabilized, unless specified elsewhere

  • Patients with known history or current symptoms of cardiac disease, or history of treatment with cardiotoxic agents, should have a clinical risk assessment of cardiac function using the New York Heart Association Functional Classification. To be eligible for this trial, patients should be class 2B or better
  • Female patients of childbearing potential must not be nursing or planning to be pregnant and must have a negative urine or serum pregnancy test within 30 days before enrollment and within 72 hours before the first administration of study treatment
    • Note: Females who have undergone surgical sterilization or who have been postmenopausal for at least 2 years are not considered to be of childbearing potential
  • The effects of Hu5F9-G4 (magrolimab) monoclonal antibody on the developing human fetus are unknown and dinutuximab is known to be teratogenic. For this reason, female patients of childbearing potential must be willing to use one highly effective method of contraception (hormonal or barrier method of birth control; abstinence) prior to study entry, during the study and continue for 4 months after the last dose of study treatment. Should a woman become pregnant or suspect she is pregnant while she or her partner is participating in this study, she should inform her treating physician immediately
    • Male patients who are sexually active with a woman of childbearing potential (WOCBP) and who have not had vasectomies must be willing to use a barrier method of contraception (condom plus spermicidal gel) and refrain from sperm donation during the study and for 4 months after the last dose of study treatment. If the partner is pregnant, male patients must use barrier method contraception (condom) during the study and for 4 months after the last dose of study treatment to prevent fetal exposure to study treatment
  • All patients and/or their parents or legally authorized representatives must have the ability to understand and the willingness to sign a written informed consent. Assent, where appropriate, will be obtained according to local institutional policy
  • Cardiac ejection fraction >= 45% or shortening fraction >= 28%, no evidence of physiologically significant pericardial effusion as determined by an echocardiogram (ECHO), multigated acquisition scan (MUGA) or cardiac MRI. No clinically significant electrocardiogram (ECG) findings that in the judgment of the treating investigator would present a contraindication for treatment

  • History of allergic reactions attributed to compounds of similar chemical or biologic composition to anti-GD2 monoclonal antibody (dinutuximab) or Hu5F9-G4 (magrolimab) monoclonal antibody or other agents used in this study
  • Uncontrolled intercurrent illness including, but not limited to, ongoing or active infection, symptomatic congestive heart failure, unstable angina pectoris, cardiac arrhythmia, or psychiatric illness/social situations that would limit compliance with study requirements
  • Patients who are receiving any other investigational agents
  • Pregnant women are excluded from this study because Hu5F9-G4 (magrolimab) is a monoclonal antibody on the developing human fetus are unknown and dinutuximab may cause fetal harm. Because there is an unknown but potential risk for adverse events in nursing infants secondary to treatment of the mother with Hu5F9-G4 (magrolimab) or dinutuximab, breastfeeding should be discontinued if the mother is treated with Hu5F9-G4 (magrolimab) or dinutuximab
  • Patients who have received prior treatment with CD47 or SIRPalpha-targeting agents
