Brief Summary:
The study purpose is to learn about the safety and tolerability of IMA101 in patients with advanced solid cancers.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Cancer Solid Tumor Drug: Fludarabine Drug: Cyclophosphamide Biological: IMA101 product Biological: Recombinant human interleukin-2 Diagnostic Test: IMA_Detect Phase 1

Detailed Description:

SCREENING: Patient eligibility will be determined by HLA (human leukocyte antigen) and the main biomarkers screening. If the patient is eligible, white blood cells will be taken during leukapheresis for the manufacture of the IMA101 product.

MANUFACTURE: IMA101 product will be made from the patient's white blood cells. TREATMENT: IMA101 product will be administered to the patient intravenously after a lymphodepleting pre-conditioning with chemotherapy (fludarabine and cyclophosphamide).

Low-dose IL-2 will be self-administered twice daily after IMA101 product for a period of time.

Patients will be monitored closely throughout the study.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 31 participants
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)

Diagnostic Test: IMA_Detect
IMA_Detect is a laboratory test that is part of screening used to determine the mRNA expression of ACTolog target source genes in tumor biopsies from solid tumors. IMA_Detect is intended for investigational use only.

  3. T-cell functionality as assessed by cellular immunomonitoring [ Time Frame: Until end of trial, appr. 2 years ]
  4. Incidence of clinical responders [ Time Frame: Until end of trial, appr. 2 years ]
  5. Description of overall survival (OS) [ Time Frame: Until end of trial, appr. 2 years ]
  6. Description of progression-free survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: Until end of trial, appr. 2 years ]
  7. Determine and report the success rate of completely evaluable results of IMA_Detect from all biopsies collected [ Time Frame: Until end of trial, appr. 2 years ]

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Biobanking for tumor and RNA samples for future IMA_Detect validation studies [ Time Frame: Until the end of the trial, appr. 2 years ]
  2. Biomarker assessment (Descriptive reporting of cellular, serum and tumor biomarker as well as clinical parameters) • Description of effector functions of antigen specific T cells within PBMCs [ Time Frame: Until end of trial, appr. 2 years ]
