Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of participants with adverse events. [ Time Frame: From start of study drug administration until the date of first documented progression or date of death from any cause; through Day 56 of final cycle. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Number of participants with dose-limiting toxicities. [ Time Frame: From start of study drug administration until the date of first documented progression or date of death from any cause: through Day 56 of the final cycle. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Number of participants with changes in laboratory values, vital signs, physical exam, and electrocardiogram. [ Time Frame: From start of study drug administration until the date of first documented progression or date of death from any cause: through Day 56 of the final cycle. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Determine Maximum Tolerated Dose based on the occurrence of dose-limiting toxicities. [ Time Frame: From start of study drug administration through Day 28 of Cycle 1. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Determine Recommended Phase 2 Dose following analysis of adverse events, pharmacokinetics and changes in laboratory evaluations. [ Time Frame: From start of study drug administration until withdrawal; through Day 56 of final cycle. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Evaluate pharmacokinetics, including area under the plasma concentration versus time curve (AUC), peak plasma concentration (Cmax) and clearance of AMP-224 following single and repeat doses of AMP-224. [ Time Frame: From Day 0 pre-dose through Day 56 of final cycle. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Evaluate Overall Response Rate (ORR), including Complete Response (CR), Partial Response (PR), Stable Disease (SD), and Progression-Free Survival (PFS). [ Time Frame: From Screening through 12 weeks following final cycle. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Characterization of the effects of AMP-224 on its receptor, PD-1, in peripheral T cells via flow cytometry and correlate with response to treatment. [ Time Frame: From Screening until 12 weeks post-final cycle. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Evaluation and correlation between response to treatment and expression of PD-1 on tumor infiltrating T cells or in available malignant pleural effusions via flow cytometry and/or immunohistochemistry. [ Time Frame: Screening through 12 weeks post-final cycle. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Evaluation and correlation between response to treatment and expression of B7-H1 on tumors via immunohistochemistry. [ Time Frame: Screening through 12 weeks post-final cycle. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Identification of peripheral patient selection and pharmacodynamic markers from blood samples that predict and/or correlate with response to treatment. [ Time Frame: Screening through 12 weeks post-final cycle. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Study Completion Date: January 2014
Primary Completion Date: November 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Stage 1
Stage 1 will identify the recommended Stage 2 dose using a dose-escalation process. Dose-escalation will continue until either a maximum tolerated dose is established, or a therapeutic dose is reached.
Drug: AMP-224
Escalating doses of AMP-224
Experimental: Stage 2
Stage 2 will further explore the safety, pharmacokinetics, and preliminary clinical activity of AMP-224 in at least one tumor type based on pharmacodynamic assessments and clinical activity emerging from the Dose-Escalation Phase. Tumor tissue and blood specimens will be evaluated for pharmacodynamic markers/activity at specified timepoints throughout the study.
Drug: AMP-224
Stage 2 will further explore the safety, pharmacokinetics, and preliminary clinical activity of AMP-224 in at least one tumor type based on pharmacodynamic assessments and clinical activity emerging from the Dose-Escalation Phase. Tumor tissue and blood
