Brief Summary:
This study is a phase 1 open-label dose escalation study of the immuno-activating monoclonal antibody APX005M in adults with solid tumors. Study is intended to establish the maximum tolerated dose and the overall safety and tolerability of APX005M in 3 different administration schedules.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Cancer NSCLC Melanoma Urothelial Carcinoma MSI-H Head and Neck Cancer Drug: APX005M Phase 1

Detailed Description:

APX005M-001 is an open-label study and comprises a dose-escalation portion of approximately 8 dose level cohorts, plus an expansion cohort.

Eligible subjects with solid tumors will receive intravenous APX005M every 3 week, every 2 week or every 1 week until disease progression, unacceptable toxicity or death, whichever occurs first.

Study objectives include:

  • Evaluate safety of APX005M
  • Determine the maximum tolerated dose of APX005M
  • Determine the pharmacokinetic parameters of APX005M: the maximal drug concentration (Cmax), area under the curve of serum concentration over time (Area Under the Curve/ AUC), and half-life (t½).
  • Preliminary assessment of clinical response

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 43 participants
Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Sequential Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
