Brief Summary:
This phase 1/2 study will evaluate the safety, tolerance and dose of BM7PE treating patients with colorectal cancer who have progressed to standard cell therapy or cannot tolerate such therapy. The study starts as a phase 1 study with the aim of assessing the final dose for this group of patients. Based on the results, the study will continue into a phase 2. The phase 2 study aim to examine overall survival ≥ 9.3 months.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: BM7PE treatment

The BM7PE treatment will be administered as a 20-minute i.v. infusion. The treatment is repeated after 2 weeks (day 15). The patients will be treated as in-patients and will stay at the hospital until toxicity have decreased to grade 2 and or plasma AST and or ALT levels has started to decrease. For at least a minimum of 3 days.

The dose administered to the patient will be 2.5, 5.0, 7.5, 10.0, 15.0 and 20.0 μg/kg body weight.

Drug: BM7PE
BM7PE immunotoxin is supplied as a liquid solution and is diluted in 0.9% saline to a total volume of 250 ml.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Adverse Events related to BM7PE [ Time Frame: 30 days after last dose of BM7PE ]
    To characterize the safety and toxicity of BM7PE by register adverse event in accordance with CTCAE 5.0

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Efficacy of the BM7PE: Overall survival [ Time Frame: Through study completion, an average of 1 year ]
    The Overall survival will be meassured by death registration

  2. Efficacy of the BM7PE: progression free survival [ Time Frame: From date of first treatment until the date of first documented progression or date of death from any cause, whichever came first, assessed up to 36 months ]
    The progression free survival will be meassured by MR (RECIST 1.1)

  3. Radiological response to BM7PE [ Time Frame: From date of first treatment until the date of first documented progression or date of death from any cause, whichever came first, assessed up to 36 months ]
    Will be meassured by CT (RECIST 1.1) response rate
