Open-label study of SF-2577 plus pembrolizumab in advanced, recurrent small cell ovarian cancer as well as select additional ovarian and endometrial cancers within the SWI/SNF pathway.

Drug: SP-2577Drug: Pembrolizumab
This study is an open-label, non-randomized dose escalation and expansion study of the LSD inhibitor SP-2577 in combination with the anti PD- 1 antibody pembrolizumab in patients with advanced, recurrent small cell ovarian cancer of the hypercalcemic type (SCCOHT) as well as select additional ovarian and endometrial cancers with mutations in the genes within the SWI/SNF pathway (Ovarian Clear Cell Cancers (OCCC), Endometrioid Ovarian Cancers (EOC) and Endometrioid Endometrial Cancers (EEC).

Progression Free Survival [ Time Frame: Start of treatment to first occurrence of PD or death (approximately 6 months to 3 years) ]
Progression Free Survival (PFS) as determined by the Investigator according to RECIST v1.1
Overall Survival [ Time Frame: Start of treatment to death (approximately 2 to 3 years) ]
Overall Survival (OS) as determined by the Investigator according to RECIST v1.1
Secondary Outcome Measures :
Plasma Concentration of SP-2577 [ Time Frame: 2 months ]
Plasma concentration of seclidemstat (SP-2577)
ctDNA in blood and other body fluids [ Time Frame: 6 months to 2 years ]

Accepts Healthy Volunteers:
Female participants who are at least 18 years of age on the day of signing informed consent with histologically confirmed diagnosis of small cell carcinoma of the ovary of hypercalcemic type (SCCOHT), ovarian clear cell carcinoma (OCCC), endometrioid ovarian carcinoma (EOC) or endometrioid endometrial carcinoma (EEC) with confirmed mutations in one of the SWI/SNF genes (SMARCA4, ARID1A) will be enrolled in this study.
