Brief Summary:
This is a study to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) for CDX-1140 and to further evaluate its tolerability and efficacy in expansion cohorts once the MTD is determined.

Detailed Description:

CDX-1140 is a fully human monoclonal antibody that binds to a cell receptor called CD40 found on certain cells to activate the immune system which may promote anti-tumor effects.

This study will determine the MTD of CDX-1140 while also evaluating the safety, tolerability and efficacy of CDX-1140.

Eligible patients that enroll to the dose-escalation portion of the study will be assigned to one of several levels of CDX-1140. The first part of the study will test the safety profile of CDX-1140 and determine which dose(s) of CDX-1140 will be studied in the expansion portion of the study.

Up to 105 patients will be enrolled. All patients enrolled in the study will be closely monitored to determine if there is a response to the treatment as well as for any side effects that may occur.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 105 participants
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase 1 Study of CDX-1140, a Fully Human Agonist Anti-CD40 Monoclonal Antibody, in Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors
Actual Study Start Date : December 1, 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date : July 2020
Estimated Study Completion Date : December 2020

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: CDX-1140

Dose-escalation phase: Eligible patients will receive treatments, based on cohort assigned, in 4 week cycles until progression or intolerance.

Expansion phase: To further study the safety, tolerability, and efficacy of CDX-1140. Patients enrolled in the expansion phase of the study will receive CDX-1140 at the dose level(s) chosen during the escalation phase.

Drug: CDX-1140
CDX-1140 will be administered every 4 weeks.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety and Tolerability of CDX1140-01 as assessed by CTCAE v4.0 [ Time Frame: Within 28 days after first dose ]
    The rates of drug-related adverse events, serious drug-related adverse events, dose-limiting toxicities, laboratory test abnormalities, and maximum tolerated dose will be determined.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Histologically confirmed diagnosis of one of the following cancers: melanoma (including mucosal and/or ocular), bladder/urothelial, non-small cell lung cancer, pancreatic adenocarcinoma, breast, colorectal, gastric, esophageal, renal cell, hepatic, ovarian, head and neck, and cholangiocarcinoma
  2. Receipt of all standard therapies for the tumor type:

    1. Must have had all standard approved and unapproved therapies as deemed appropriate by the treating physician.
    2. Patients are not required to have all approved therapies in a drug class (e.g., patients with kidney cancer do not need all tyrosine kinase inhibitors, patients with melanoma do not need all approved checkpoint blockade inhibitors)
    3. Patients who refuse standard therapy are excluded from the study
  3. Measurable disease.
  4. Life expectancy ≥ 12 weeks.
  5. If of childbearing potential (male or female), agrees to practice an effective form of contraception during study treatment and for at least 6 months following last treatment.
  6. Willingness to undergo a tumor biopsy prior to treatment.
  7. Willingness to undergo a tumor biopsy while on study treatment.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. History of severe hypersensitivity reactions to other monoclonal antibodies.
  2. Previous treatment with any anti-CD40 antibody.
  3. Received any antibody targeting T-cell check point or co-stimulation pathways within 4 weeks, received any other monoclonal antibody within 4 weeks, and all other immunotherapy (tumor vaccine, cytokine, or growth factor) within 2 weeks prior to study treatment.
  4. Chemotherapy within 21 days (6 weeks for nitrosoureas) or at least 5 half-lives (whichever is longer) prior to study treatment.
  5. Received any kinase inhibitors within 2 weeks prior to study treatment.
  6. Systemic radiation therapy within 4 weeks, prior focal radiotherapy within 2 weeks, or radiopharmaceuticals (strontium, samarium) within 8 weeks prior to study treatment.
  7. Major surgery within 4 weeks prior to study treatment.
  8. Use of immunosuppressive medications within 4 weeks or systemic corticosteroids within 2 weeks prior to study treatment.
  9. Other prior malignancy, except for adequately treated basal or squamous cell skin cancer or in situ cancers. For all other cancers, the patient must be disease-free for at least 3 years to be allowed to enroll.
  10. Active, untreated central nervous system metastases.
  11. Active autoimmune disease or documented history of autoimmune disease.
  12. Active infection requiring systemic therapy, known infection of HIV, Hepatitis B, or Hepatitis C.
  13. Significant cardiovascular disease including Congestive Heart Failure or poorly controlled hypertension.
