Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Merck Sharp & Dohme Corp.
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT02731742
First received: April 4, 2016
Last updated: May 24, 2017
Last verified: May 2017
  Purpose
This is a non-randomized, open-label study of MK-1966 used in combination with SD-101 in the treatment of advanced malignancies. The study will include an initial Dose Evaluation phase to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD)/maximum administered dose (MAD) by evaluating Dose Limiting Toxicities (DLTs) on four dose combinations of MK-1966 and SD-101. Following determination of the MTD/MAD, approximately 20 participants each will be enrolled in two expansion cohorts to confirm/refine the MTD/MAD.

Condition Intervention Phase
Neoplasms, Advanced Biological: MK-1966 Drug: SD-101 Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: No masking
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase 1/1b Trial of MK-1966 in Combination With SD-101 in Subjects With Advanced Malignancies

Further study details as provided by Merck Sharp & Dohme Corp.:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Participants with a Dose Limiting Toxicity (DLT) [ Time Frame: From time of first dose up to the end of Cycle 1 (up to 21 days) ]
  • Number of Participants with Adverse Events (AEs) [ Time Frame: From time of first dose until the end of follow-up (up to 29 weeks) ]
  • Number of Participants Discontinuing Study Drug Due to AEs [ Time Frame: From time of first dose until the end of follow-up (up to 24 weeks) ]

Estimated Enrollment: 64
Actual Study Start Date: June 22, 2016
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 28, 2018
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 28, 2018 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
