Description

Summary

This is a first-in-human, multi-center, multi-cohort, open-label, phase Ib/II study of XmAb22841 (CTLA-4 X LAG3) administered in combination with XmAb23104 (PD1 X ICOS) in participants with a histologically or cytologically confirmed diagnosis of an advanced/metastatic melanoma. XmAb22841 (CTLA-4 X LAG3) is a bi-specific antibody targeting two different T cell membrane proteins responsible for regulation of T cell activity. It offers potential immunologic and safety advantages over existing therapies. XmAb22841 (CTLA-4 X LAG3) is being evaluated in this clinical study designed to assess the safety, tolerability, PK, and PD of escalating doses of XmAb22841 (CTLA-4 X LAG3) administered in combination with XmAb23104 (PD1 X ICOS)

The study will be conducted through the University of California Melanoma Consortium (UCMC).

Official Title

Phase Ib/II Study of XmAb23104 (PD1 X ICOS) and XmAb22841 (CTLA-4 X LAG3) Combination in Metastatic Melanoma Refractory to Prior Immune Checkpoint Inhibitor Therapy With and Without CNS Disease

Details

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

  1. Dose Escalation Phase (Part 1): To estimate the recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D) of XmAb22841 (CTLA-4 X LAG3) in combination XmAb23104 (PD1 X ICOS).

II. Dose Expansion Phase (Part 2): To assess clinical response as measured by objective response rate of patients treated with XmAb22841 (CTLA-4 X LAG3) in combination XmAb23104 (PD1 X ICOS)

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

  1. To evaluate the pharmacokinetics (PK) and anti-drug antibody (ADA) immunogenicity of XmAb23104 (PD1 X ICOS) and XmAb22841 (CTLA-4 X LAG3) (Dose Escalation (Part 1) & Dose Expansion (Part 2)).

II. To evaluate the clinical efficacy of XmAb23104 (PD1 X ICOS) and XmAb22841 (CTLA-4 X LAG3) (Dose Expansion (Part 2)).

EXPLORATORY OBJECTIVES:

  1. To identify molecular (genomic, metabolic, and/or proteomic) biomarkers that may be indicative of clinical response/resistance, safety, pharmacodynamic activity, and/or the mechanism of action of XmAb22841 (CTLA-4 X LAG3) administered in combination with XmAb23104 (PD1 X ICOS) (Dose Escalation (Part 1) & Dose Expansion(Part 2)).

OUTLINE:

Participants will initially be enrolled in the Dose Escalation Phase (Part 1).

**PHASE 2 Dose Expansion (Part 2) will not be initiated**.

Participants may continue trial therapy until the earlier of radiographic disease progression, withdrawal, unacceptable toxicity, completion of 24 cycles of XmAb23104 (PD1 X ICOS), or other treatment discontinuation due to unacceptable toxicity, participant withdrawal, progressive disease or death. The entire treatment duration of twenty-four 28-day cycles is approximately 2 years. After discontinuing trial therapy, participants will be followed for toxicity, response, and overall survival every 12 weeks for up to 5 years from initiation of study treatment.

The effects of XmAb23104 and XmAb22841 on the developing human fetus and nursing infant are unknown. Additionally, it is not known if XmAb23104 and XmAb22841 have transient adverse effects on the composition of sperm. Therefore, participants who enroll in this trial must agree to follow the below contraception requirements. Contraception Requirements for Females: - Female participants should immediately inform the investigator if they become pregnant or suspect pregnancy while participating in the trial. - Female participants of reproductive potential must agree to remain abstinent or use a highly effective method of contraception £ while receiving trial therapy and for 150 days following completion of trial therapy. Women also must not freeze or donate eggs during this same period. Contraception Requirements for Males: - Male participants should immediately inform the investigator if their partner becomes pregnant or suspects pregnancy while they are participating in the trial. - With a female partner of reproductive potential, males must agree to remain abstinent or use a highly effective method of contraception £ while receiving trial therapy and for 150 days following completion of trial therapy. Men also must not donate sperm during this same period. - With a pregnant female partner, males must remain abstinent or use a condom while receiving trial therapy and for 150 days following completion of trial therapy to avoid exposing the embryo/child. - With a lactating female partner, males must remain abstinent or use a condom while receiving trial therapy and for 150 days following completion of trial therapy to avoid exposing the nursing infant.
