Brief Summary:
This is a non-randomized, Phase 2, 2-stage, open-label, multi-center study of GRN-1201/sargramostim + pembrolizumab in subjects with PD-L1+ metastatic NSCLC. All subjects will have newly diagnosed metastatic PD-L1+ (TPS ≥ 50%) NSCLC with no epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) or anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) genomic tumor aberrations. Subjects with EGFR or ALK genomic tumor aberrations with progression on FDA-approved therapy for these aberrations are eligible

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Metastatic NSCLC Biological: GRN-1201 + Pembrolizumab Phase 2

Detailed Description:

This is a non-randomized, Phase 2, 2-stage, open-label, multi-center study of GRN-1201/sargramostim + pembrolizumab in subjects with metastatic PD-L1+ NSCLC.

All subjects will have newly diagnosed metastatic PD-L1+ (TPS ≥ 50%) NSCLC with no epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) or anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) genomic tumor aberrations.

The study will follow a Simon two-stage design with up to 64 total subjects enrolled. All subjects will receive GRN-1201 at 3.0 mg in combination with 75 µg sargramostim and 200 mg pembrolizumab.

GRN-1201 is to be administered once weekly for 4 weeks followed by every 3-week dosing for an additional 12 doses (16 total doses of GRN-1201). Each dose of GRN-1201 will be given as 1 mL divided into 4 separate 0.25 mL intradermal injections on each day of treatment. Pembrolizumab is to be given every 3 weeks for up to a total of 35 doses.

This study will consist of a screening period of up to 28 days; a treatment period consisting of GRN-1201/sargramostim administered weekly for 4 weeks (4 doses) followed by administration every 3 weeks for 12 additional doses . Pembrolizumab is to be given every 3 weeks for up to a total of 35 doses.

A follow up visit will occur approximately 4 weeks after the last administration of treatment for the study. In addition, all subjects will be followed for evaluation of disease progression and survival

GRN-1201 will be administered in combination with Pembrolizumab
Other Name: Pembrolizumab




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Assess the effect, as measured by response rate of the addition of GRN-1201 to Pembrolizumab [ Time Frame: First dose through 16 weeks after last dose of study drug ]
    Tumor assessment over time using Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) 1.1


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Evaluate the adverse event profile for the combination of GRN-1201 and Pembrolizumab as assessed by treatment -related events according to CTCAE version 4 [ Time Frame: First dose through 16 weeks after last dose of study drug ]
    The safety and tolerability of GRN-1201/sargramostim + pembrolizumab will be evaluated by local and systemic signs and symptoms of injection site reactions, and incidence of adverse events including immune related adverse events (irAEs).

  2. Host immune response to GRN-1201 [ Time Frame: First dose through 16 weeks after last dose of study drug ]

    Immune responses to GRN-1201 will be monitored to establish proof-of principle for the proposed pharmacological effect and demonstrate immunogenicity of GRN-1201.

    Immune response to the individual peptides will be assessed by measurement of cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTLs) (by gamma interferon [IFN-γ] ELISPOT assay) and by measurement of antibodies to each peptide


  3. Clinical Benefit response rate (CR + PR + SD >/= 16 weeks) [ Time Frame: First dose through 16 weeks after last dose of study drug ]
    Tumor assessment over time using Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) 1.1

  4. Progression-free survival [ Time Frame: First dose through 2 years after last dose of combination treatment ]
    Progression-free survival will be determined by tumor assessments or death from any cause

  5. Duration of response in responding subjects [ Time Frame: First dose through 16 weeks after last dose of study drug ]
    The duration of objective response will be assessed

  6. Duration of clinical benefit [ Time Frame: First dose through 16 weeks after last dose of study drug ]
    The duration of clinical benefit response rate will be assessed

  7. Overall survival [ Time Frame: First dose through 16 weeks after last dose of study drug ]
    All subjects will be followed for overall survival after discontinuation of combination treatment
