Brief Summary:
This is a multi-center, Phase 1 / 2 clinical study for patients with advanced solid tumors. The study consists of 2 treatment arms - a monotherapy arm and a combination arm. The monotherapy arm has 1 part: Dose Escalation (Part A) The combination arm has Dose Escalation (Part B) only.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Neoplasms Drug: DSP-0509 Drug: DSP-0509, Pembrolizumab Phase 1 Phase 2

Detailed Description:

The primary objective of Monotherapy Arm A is to determine the MTD or RP2D of DSP-0509 when administered as a single agent. Approximately 21 to 30 patients with advanced solid tumors will be enrolled. Several provisional dose levels of DSP-0509, with approximately 3 to 6 patients at each level may be tested in patients with advanced solid tumors. DSP-0509 will be administered as a single agent q2w beginning on Day 1.

The primary objective of Combination Therapy Arm B is to determine the RP2D of DSP-0509 when administered in combination with pembrolizumab, using a BLRM approach. The combination arm will enroll approximately 21 to 30 patients with advanced solid tumors that are (a) metastatic or unresectable and recurrent, and/or refractory to available therapy, (b) a condition for which pembrolizumab is an approved treatment, and (c) in patients who have shown either primary or acquired resistance to an ICI. DSP-0509 will be administered on Day 1 and then every 2 weeks thereafter. Pembrolizumab will be initiated on Day 1.

The primary objective of Combination Therapy Arm C is to determine preliminary efficacy in the form of the ORR of DSP-0509 when administered in combination with pembrolizumab to an expansion cohort of patients with HNSCC, using a Bayesian Adaptive design approach. Combination Arm C will enroll approximately 20 to 40 patients with HNSCC tumors that are (a) metastatic or unresectable, and recurrent and/or refractory to available therapy, (b) in patients who have been treated with pembrolizumab or other PD-1 or PD-L1 inhibitors in monotherapy, and (c) who have subsequently shown either primary or acquired resistance to ICIs.

Dose escalation of DSP-0509 in combination with 400 mg pembrolizumab q6w will start at the same dose of DSP-0509 as the highest (not exceeding the MTD) level tested in the combination regimen with 200 mg pembrolizumab q3w. Upon completion of the DLT evaluation period for the first DSP-0509 dose level tested in combination with 400 mg pembrolizumab q6w in newly enrolled patients, if this dose level is found not to exceed the MTD, any ongoing patients receiving DSP-0509 in combination with pembrolizumab 200 mg q3w will be allowed, at the investigator's discretion, to transition to the 400 mg pembrolizumab q6w regimen, while maintaining the originally assigned DSP-0509 dose level.
