Brief Summary:
This is a phase 1, open-label, multicenter dose-escalation study to determine the RP2D of CI 8993 for administration to patients with relapsed/refractory solid tumors by evaluating the safety and tolerability and characterizing the PK, PD, and anti cancer activity of CI-8993 in this population.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Solid Tumor Drug: CI-8993 Phase 1

Detailed Description:

The plan is to enroll approximately 50 patients with metastatic or unresectable solid tumor malignancy (non-lymphoma) that is considered relapsed and/or refractory to prior therapy into specific dose cohorts to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of full doses of CI-8993, based on the occurrence of dose limiting toxicities (DLTs) 28 days from the first full dose. Administration is every 2 weeks. To assure patient safety, each patient will receive an initial low dose of CI-8993 (step-dose) one week prior to their first full dose.

A Safety Review Committee (SRC) will review all safety data and make cohort escalation/de-escalation decisions.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 50 participants
Allocation: N/A
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Intervention Model Description: Each patient will be administered a step-dose of CI-8993. If a patient experiences a DLT following the step dose, treatment will be discontinued for that patient. If there are no safety concerns following the step dose, the patient will receive the first full dose of CI-8993 a week later. If none of the 3 patients in each cohort (or 1 in 6 patients) experiences a DLT during the first cycle (28 days following the first full dose), the SRC may clear the next dose level for enrollment.
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Phase 1 Study of CI-8993 Anti-VISTA Antibody in Patients With Advanced Solid Tumor Malignancies
Actual Study Start Date : September 22, 2020
Estimated Primary Completion Date : July 1, 2022
Estimated Study Completion Date : July 1, 2022

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: CI-8993 dose escalation
Patients will be administered CI-8993 intravenously at a planned infusion rate over 2 hours at planned step-doses and subsequent full doses. The planned schedule of administration is every 2 weeks. The MTD of full doses of CI-8993 will be determined based on the occurrence of DLTs 28 days from the first full dose. Eligible patients may receive CI-8993 at the dose and schedule, according to their assigned cohorts, until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Drug: CI-8993
CI-8993 is a fully human immunoglobulin (Ig) G1κ monoclonal antibody (mAb) against the VISTA ligand




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. To determine the maximum tolerated dose of CI-8993 [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    The highest dose at a schedule, at which the DLT rate during the first cycle of this study (28 days from the first full dose) is < 33% in at least 6 patients.

  2. Determine the Recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D) [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    The RP2D will be a dose considered to be appropriately safe for a target phase 2 population and exhibit PK and PD characteristics that are favorable and considered likely to support clinical efficacy of CI-8993. The RP2D will be defined by the Safety Review Committee (SRC) based on PK, PD, safety, efficacy results in this study, as well as practical limitations.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. To characterize the pharmacokinetic (PK) parameters of CI-8993 measured by Cmax [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    maximum serum concentration (Cmax)

  2. To characterize the pharmacokinetic (PK) parameters of CI-8993 measured by Cmin [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    trough serum concentration (Cmin)

  3. To characterize the pharmacokinetic (PK) parameters of CI-8993 measured by Tmax [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    Time to maximum serum concentration

  4. To characterize the pharmacokinetic (PK) parameters of CI-8993 measured by Area under the concentration versus time curve (AUC) [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    area under the concentration-time curve

  5. To characterize the pharmacokinetic (PK) parameters of CI-8993 measured by T 1/2 [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    Serum terminal elimination half-life (T 1/2)

  6. To characterize the pharmacokinetic (PK) parameters of CI-8993 measured by volume of distribution at steady state [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    volume of distribution at steady state (Vdss)

  7. To characterize the pharmacokinetic (PK) parameters of CI-8993 measured by clearance [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    Clearance (CL)

  8. To assess anti-drug antibodies (ADA) of CI-8993 [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    Evaluate antibodies to CI-8993 in serum
