Open to people ages 18 years and up

  • Adults > 18 years old
  • Clinical and histopathological diagnosis of metastatic colorectal cancer Guanylate Cyclase (GCC) positive metastatic disease as determined by immunohistochemistry (IHC) from a new biopsy of a proposed target lesion.
  • Limited liver disease (less than 5 lesions with largest lesion less than 3 cm)
  • No surgical options with curative intent.
  • Received prior therapy with fluoropyrimidine-, oxaliplatin-, and irinotecan-based chemotherapy in the metastatic setting (or palliative therapy within 12 months of adjuvant therapy), an anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF) biological therapy if not contraindicated, and if RAS wild-type an anti-epidermal growth factor receptor (anti-EGFR) therapy in a manner consistent with National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) guidelines. Treatment must have been discontinued for disease progression or intolerance to therapy.
  • Have at least two extracranial measurable target lesions according to the Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) 1.1 standard.

  • No active infectious diseases or comorbid conditions that would interfere with safety or data quality.
  • Subjects with active infection requiring systemic therapy or causing fever (temperature > 38.1˚C) or subjects with unexplained fever (temperature > 38.1˚C) within 7 days prior to the day of investigational product administration.
