Brief Summary:

Phase Ia - Explore safety and establish the maximum tolerated dose (MTD)/recommended dose levels for phase Ib expansion phase of BI 905711 based on the frequency of patients experiencing dose limiting toxicities (DLTs) during the MTD evaluation period. The MTD evaluation period is defined as the first two treatment cycles (from first dose administration until the day preceding the third dose administration or end of REP in case of discontinuation before start of Cycle 3).

Phase Ia - Explore pharmacokinetics/pharmacodynamics, and efficacy to guide the determination of a potentially effective dose range for phase Ib in the absence of MTD.

Phase Ib - Evaluate efficacy and safety of BI 905711 at a potentially effective dose range and determine the Recommended Phase 2 Dose (RP2D)

Primary Outcome Measures :

  3. Phase Ib - Objective response based on RECIST 1.1 criteria [ Time Frame: Up to 107 days ]
    Objective response is defined as best overall response of complete response or partial response, where best overall response is the best response recorded from the start of the study treatment until the earliest of disease progression, death or last evaluable tumor assessment and before start of subsequent anti-cancer therapy

  1. Phase Ia - Cmax: maximum measured concentration of BI 905711 in plasma [ Time Frame: Up to day 1 and up to day 19 ]
  2. Phase Ia - AUC0-t2: area under the concentration-time curve of BI 905711 in plasma [ Time Frame: Up to day 1 and up to day 19 ]
  3. Phase Ia - Objective response based on RECIST 1.1 criteria in patients with measurable disease [ Time Frame: Up to 107 days ]
  4. Phase Ib - Radiological (CT Scan) tumor shrinkage, defined as the difference between the minimum post-baseline sum of longest diameters of target lesions and the baseline sum of longest diameters of the same set of target lesions according to RECIST 1.1 [ Time Frame: Up to 107 days ]
  5. Phase Ib -The duration of overall response is measured from the time measurement criteria are first met for CR/PR until the first date that recurrent or progressive disease is objectively documented according to RECIST 1.1 [ Time Frame: Up to 107 days ]
  6. Phase Ib - Number of patients with treatment-emergent adverse events (AE)s [ Time Frame: Up to 107 days ]
  7. Phase Ib - Disease control, defined as CR, PR, or stable disease according to RECIST 1.1 from the start of treatment until the earliest of progression disease, death or last evaluable tumor assessment and before start of subsequent anti-cancer therapy [ Time Frame: Baseline and up to 107 days ]
  8. Phase Ib - Cmax: maximum measured concentration of BI 905711 in plasma [ Time Frame: Up to day 1 and up to day 19 ]

Pre-treatment fresh tumor biopsy collections for biomarker analyses are considered optional in phase Ia and mandatory in phase Ib. Only nonsignificant risk procedures per the investigator's judgment will be used to obtain any biopsies specified in this study. In case a fresh tumor biopsy cannot be obtained due to before mentioned reasons an archived tumor tissue specimen obtained within ≤6 months of screening must be submitted.

  • Any serious concomitant disease or medical condition affecting compliance with Trial requirements or which are considered relevant for the evaluation of the efficacy or safety of the trial drug, such as neurologic, psychiatric, infectious disease or active ulcers (gastro-intestinal (GI) tract, skin) or laboratory abnormality that may increase the risk associated with trial participation or trial drug administration, and in the judgment of the Investigator, would make the patient inappropriate for entry into the trial. Any history of stroke or myocardial infarction within 6 months prior to screening.
  • Known pathological condition of GI tract, liver and pancreas, excluding the disease under study, that may interfere with assessment of drug safety or may increase the risk of toxicity:

    • inflammatory bowel disease
    • chronic pancreatitis
    • other serious GI pathological conditions by judgment of the investigator e.g. autoimmune disease with GI involvement, unexplained active diarrhea CTCAE grade ≥2 according to CTCAE v5.0.
  • Known history of human immunodeficiency virus infection.
  • Any of the following laboratory evidence of hepatitis virus infection. Test results obtained in routine diagnostics are acceptable if done within 14 days before the informed consent date:

    • Presence of hepatitis C RNA
  • Active concomitant malignancies, other than the one treated in this trial.
  • Chronic alcohol or drug abuse or any condition that, in the investigator's opinion, makes the patient an unreliable trial participant or unlikely to comply with the protocol requirements or not expected to complete the trial as scheduled.
  • Women who are pregnant, nursing, or who plan to become pregnant while in the trial; female patients who do not agree to the interruption of breast feeding from the start of study treatment to within 30 days after the last study treatment.
  • Presence of uncontrolled or symptomatic brain or subdural metastases. Inclusion of patients with brain metastases who have completed local therapy and are considered stable by the investigator, or with newly identified asymptomatic brain metastases at screening will be allowed. Use of corticosteroids is allowed if the dose was stable for at least 1 week before the baseline MRI.
  • Patients who are under judicial protection and patients who are legally institutionalized
  • Major surgery (major according to the investigator's assessment) performed within 3 weeks prior to treatment start or planned within 3 months after screening, e.g. hip replacement.
  • Any of the following cardiac criteria:

    • Resting corrected QT interval (QTc) >470 msec
    • Any clinically important abnormalities (as assessed by the Investigator) in rhythm, conduction, or morphology of resting ECGs, e.g., complete left bundle branch block, third degree heart block
    • Patients with an ejection fraction (EF) <50% or the lower limit of normal of the institutional standard will be excluded. Only in cases where the Investigator (or the treating physician or both) suspects cardiac disease with negative effect on the EF, will the EF be measured during screening using an appropriate method according to local standards to confirm eligibility (e.g., echocardiogram, multi-gated acquisition scan). A historic measurement of EF no older than 6 months prior to first administration of study drug can be accepted provided that there is clinical evidence that the EF value has not worsened since this measurement in the opinion of the Investigator or of the treating physician or both.
  • Known hypersensitivity to the trial medication and/or its components i.e. polysorbate 20, sodium citrate, lysine hydrochloride, sucrose, citric acid.
