Brief Summary:
This is a Phase 2, open-label, 2-part, multicenter study in subjects with MSS relapsed/refractory colorectal cancer. The primary objective of Part 1 is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of escalating doses of eFT508 in combination with a fixed dose of avelumab to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of eFT508 and to select a recommended dose for Part 2. The primary objective of Part 2 is to evaluate antitumor activity of eFT508 at the recommended dose in combination with avelumab or eFT508 monotherapy. Parts 1 and 2 will also evaluate pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Microsatellite Stable Relapsed or Refractory Colorectal Cancer Drug: eFT508 Drug: Avelumab Phase 2

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 70 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Intervention Model Description: In Part 1, subjects will receive eFT508 in combination with a fixed dose of avelumab. Once the recommended dose of eFT508 in combination with avelumab is determined in Part 1, enrollment in Part 2 will begin. Subjects will be randomized in approximately a 2:1 ratio to receive eFT508 in combination with avelumab or eFT508 monotherapy.
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase 2, Open-Label, Randomized, Non-Comparative Study With Preliminary Dose Finding to Evaluate eFT508 Monotherapy or eFT508 in Combination With Avelumab in Subjects With Microsatellite Stable Relapsed or Refractory Colorectal Cancer
Actual Study Start Date : September 13, 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date : May 2018
Estimated Study Completion Date : November 2018

  • Life expectancy of ≥3 months.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • History of another malignancy except for adequately treated local basal cell or squamous cell carcinoma of the skin; in situ cervical or breast carcinoma; adequately treated, papillary, noninvasive bladder cancer; other adequately treated Stage 1 or 2 cancers currently in complete remission, or any other cancer that has been in complete remission for ≥2 years.
  • Known symptomatic brain metastases requiring ≥10 mg/day of prednisolone (or its equivalent).
  • Significant cardiovascular disease.
  • Significant screening ECG abnormalities.
  • Active autoimmune disease that might deteriorate when receiving an immunostimulatory agent.
  • Known history of colitis, inflammatory bowel disease, pneumonitis, or pulmonary fibrosis.

  • Evidence of an ongoing systemic bacterial, fungal, or viral infection.
  • Any condition that may impact the subject's ability to swallow oral medications.
  • Major surgery within 4 weeks before the start of study therapy.
  • Prior solid organ or bone marrow progenitor cell transplantation.
  • Prior therapy with any known inhibitor of MNK-1 or MNK-2.
  • Prior therapy with any of the following: PD-1, PD-L1, CTLA4 antibody, or any other drug targeting T cell checkpoint pathways.
  • Prior high dose chemotherapy requiring stem cell rescue.
  • Intolerance to or prior severe (≥Grade 3) allergic or anaphylactic reaction to infused antibodies or infused therapeutic proteins.
  • Vaccination within 4 weeks of the first dose of avelumab and while on study.
  • Ongoing immunosuppressive therapy.
  • Use of a strong inhibitor or inducer of cytochrome P450 3A4 (CYP3A4) within 7 days prior to the start of study therapy or expected requirement for use of a strong CYP3A4 inhibitor or inducer during study therapy.
