Official Title: A Phase 1 Dose Escalation Study to Evaluate Safety, Tolerability, and Pharmacokinetics/ Pharmacodynamics of APR003 in Patients With Advanced Colorectal Cancer (CRC) With Malignant Liver Lesions
Actual Study Start Date : January 20, 2021
Estimated Primary Completion Date : October 2023
Estimated Study Completion Date : December 2023

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: APR003 Dose Escalation
This portion of the study will evaluate the safety and pharmacokinetics of a range of APR003 doses administered once a week for 21 days in subjects with advance colorectal cancer (CRC) with metastases to the liver and to determine the RP2D.
Drug: APR003
This portion of the study further explores the clinical activity, safety, pharmacokinetics and pharmacology of APR003 monotherapy at the RP2D and to assess the antitumor activity of APR003 in subjects with unresectable CRC with liver metastases.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Primary Outcome Measure [ Time Frame: Up to one year ]
    Determine Maximum Tolerated Dose and/or Recommended Dose within the test APR003 dose range

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Secondary Outcome [ Time Frame: Up to three years ]
    Overall Response Rate
