Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Triple Negative Breast Cancer Drug: PCA062
Experimental: Head and Neck Cancer Drug: PCA062
Experimental: Esophageal Cancer Drug: PCA062

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Incidence rate of dose limiting toxicities [ Time Frame: 28 days ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Incidence and severity of serious/adverse events [ Time Frame: Duration of study (each treatment cycle = 14 days) ]
  2. Pharmacokinetic parameter Cmax [ Time Frame: 84 days ]
    Cmax = the maximum concentration (peak) of the drug observed in the blood after a single administration of the drug

  3. Presence of PCA062 anti-bodies [ Time Frame: 84 days ]
    The presence and/or concentration of the anti-bodies will be tested from the blood samples collected

  4. Overall response rate [ Time Frame: Duration of study (each treatment cycle = 14 days) ]
  5. Duration of response [ Time Frame: Duration of study (each treatment cycle = 14 days) ]
  6. Progression free survival [ Time Frame: 18 months ]
  7. Disease control rate [ Time Frame: 18 months ]
  8. Best overall response [ Time Frame: Duration of study (each treatment cycle = 14 days) ]
  9. Pharmacokinetic paramater Tmax [ Time Frame: 84 days ]
    Tmax = the time the drug takes to reach maximum (peak) concentration in the blood

Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion criteria:

  1. Male or female ≥ 18 years of age
  2. Documented pCAD expressing tumor cells with the exception of HNSCC and ESCC. An archived tumor sample collected within 36 months prior to baseline if available, or a new tumor biopsy sample must be available for molecular pre-screening.
  3. Consent for a tumor biopsy at screening
  4. Progressive disease and no effective therapy exists
  5. Measurable disease as per RECIST v1.1 criteria
  6. ECOG Performance status of ≤ 2

Exclusion criteria:

  1. CNS metastatic involvement
  2. Clinically significant cardiac, respiratory, gastrointestinal, renal, hepatic or neurological conditions.
  3. A history of serious allergic reactions, which in the opinion of the investigator pose an increased risk of serious infusion reactions.
  4. Monocular vision or has media opacities or any other condition that precludes monitoring of the retina or the fundus, or has a history of ophthalmology exam with retina or cornea abnormalities
  5. Previously treated with anti-pCAD biologic therapies.
  6. Received anti-cancer therapies within the following time frames prior to the first dose of study treatment:

    • Conventional cytotoxic chemotherapy: ≤4 weeks
    • Biologic therapy (eg, antibodies), other than ADCs: ≤4 weeks
    • Non-cytotoxic small molecule therapeutics: ≤5 T1/2 or ≤2 weeks (whichever is longer)
    • Other investigational agents: ≤4 weeks
    • Radiation therapy (palliative setting is allowed.): ≤4 weeks
    • Major surgery: ≤2 weeks
  7. Patient has out of range laboratory values defined as:

    • Hematological values:
    • Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) <1.5 x 109/L
    • Hemoglobin (Hgb) <9 g/dL
    • Platelets <100 x 109/L
    • Hepatic and renal function
    • Total bilirubin >1.5 x upper limit of normal (ULN). For patients with Gilbert's syndrome, total bilirubin >2.5 x ULN.
    • Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) or alanine aminotransferase (ALT) >3 x ULN for patients without tumor involvement of the liver or >5 x ULN for patients with tumor involvement of the liver.
