Brief Summary:
This is a 2-part, Phase 1, open-label study. Phase 1a of this study is designed to determine the recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D) in subjects with advanced cancer whose HER2 test results are in situ hybridization (ISH) positive or immunohistochemistry (IHC) 3+ and Phase 1b is designed to assess anticancer activity and safety in 2 advanced breast cancer expansion cohorts: 1) for tumors that test as HER2 ISH positive or IHC3+ and, 2) for tumors that test as HER2 ISH negative with IHC 2+.

Detailed Description:
Phase 1a of this study is designed to determine the recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D) in subjects with advanced cancer whose HER2 test results are in situ hybridization (ISH) positive or immunohistochemistry (IHC) 3+. This is based on safety, tolerability, PK findings as well as data of antitumor activity. Phase 1b is designed to assess the safety, tolerability, and PK of RP2D will be further evaluated and the anticancer activity and safety in 3 advanced cancer expansion cohorts: two different advanced breast cancer cohorts (namely, one for tumors that test as HER2 IHC3+ or IHC2+/ISH+ and one for tumors that test as HER2 IHC 2+/ISH- or IHC 1+/ISH-), and one advanced gastric cancer cohort for tumors that test as HER2 IHC3+ or IHC2+/ISH+

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 60 participants
Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Sequential Assignment
Intervention Model Description:

This is a 2-part, Phase 1, open-label study. Phase 1a is designed to determine the recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D) in subjects with advanced cancer whose HER2 test results are in situ hybridization (ISH) positive or immunohistochemistry (IHC) 3+.

The IMP, ARX788, will be administered every 3 weeks or every 4 weeks via IV infusion. Six sequential dose escalation cohorts are planned according to 3+3 design. A cohort may be expanded to collect additional data if recommended by Safety Monitoring Committee based on comprehensive reviews of safety, tolerability and PK data to help determine RP2D.

Phase 1b is designed to investigate the RP2D, from Phase 1a, to assess anticancer activity and safety in 2 advanced breast cancer expansion cohorts: 1) tested tumors HER2 ISH positive or IHC 3+ and 2) tested tumors HER2 ISH negative with IHC 2+.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of subjects experiencing adverse events, frequency and seriousness of treatment emergent adverse events (TEAEs) [ Time Frame: Day 1 through 30 days after last dose ]
    To assess the safety, tolerability, and immunogenicity profile

  2. Phase 1b: Objective response rate (ORR: complete response + partial response) per imaging assessment based on RECIST version 1.1. [ Time Frame: 18 months ]
    Number of subjects with objective response is assessed every 6-8 weeks from Cycle 1 Day 1 through disease progression.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of subjects with tumor response per imaging assessment based on RECIST version 1.1. [ Time Frame: 18 months ]
    The objective response rate (ORR: CR+PR) based on RECIST v1.1 will be assessed as the primary endpoint to determine the anticancer activity of ARX788 as well as best overall response.

  2. Area under the concentration-time curve (AUC) from first infusion to subject end of study. [ Time Frame: 18 months ]
    Pharmacokinetic (PK) characteristics: ARX788 (intact ADC), total mAb, and metabolites

  3. Half-life of ARX788 from first infusion to end of study. [ Time Frame: 18 months ]
    Pharmacokinetic (PK) characteristics: ARX788 from first infusion to subject end of study

  4. Immunogenicity profile of ARX788 [ Time Frame: 18 months ]
    Number of subjects who develop anti-ARX788 antibody
