Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE X4P-001 and Pembrolizumab in Patients With Advanced Melanoma
Official Title  ICMJE A Phase 1b Trial of X4P-001 Alone and With Pembrolizumab in Patients With Advanced Melanoma
Brief Summary The goals of this protocol are 1) to investigate the safety and tolerability of X4P-001 in combination with Keytruda® (pembrolizumab) in patients with advanced melanoma, and 2) to assess serial biopsies of melanoma tumor lesions obtained throughout the study for inflammatory and tumor cell infiltrates. After completion of study treatment, participants with resectable disease will undergo surgery, unresectable participants may continue on pembrolizumab as standard of care.
Detailed Description

X4P-001 is an orally bioavailable CXCR4 antagonist that has demonstrated activity in various tumor models. CXCR4 (C-X-C chemokine receptor type 4) is the receptor for CXCL12 (C-X-C chemokine ligand type 12). CXCL12 has potent chemotactic activity for lymphocytes and MDSCs (myeloid-derived suppressor cells), and is important in homing of hematopoietic stem cells to the bone marrow. CXCR4 is also expressed and active on multiple types of human cancers, including melanoma, ccRCC, and ovarian cancer. Additionally, increased expression of CXCR4 on tumor cells has been associated with significantly decreased overall participant survival.

In animal cancer models, interference with CXCR4 function has been demonstrated to disrupt the tumor microenvironment (TME) and unmask the tumor to immune attack by multiple mechanisms, including:

  • Decreasing the infiltration of MDSCs
  • Increasing the ratio of CD8+ T cells to Treg cells
  • Eliminating tumor re-vascularization

Pembrolizumab is a humanized IgG4 kappa monoclonal antibody that blocks the interaction between PD-1 and its ligands, PD-L1 and PD-L2. Pembrolizumab is currently approved for the treatment of unresectable or metastatic melanoma. Analysis of tumor samples before and during treatment in an earlier study demonstrated that a clinical response was associated with an increase in the density of CD8+ T cells in the tumor parenchyma (center), while disease progression was associated with persistent low levels of those cells. In an autochthonous murine model of pancreatic adenocarcinoma, persistent tumor growth despite administration of anti-PD-L1 was similarly associated with failure of tumor-specific cytotoxic T cells to enter the TME despite their presence in the peripheral circulation. This immunosuppressed phenotype was associated with CXCL12 production by cancer-associated fibroblasts. Moreover, administration of a CXCR4 antagonist (AMD3100) induced rapid T-cell accumulation among the cancer cells and, in combination with anti-PD-L1, synergistically decreased tumor growth.

Based on these observations, the hypothesis is that effective CXCR4 antagonism by X4P-001 would be of potential benefit in participants with advanced melanoma and other cancers by multiple mechanisms, resulting in increased anti-tumor immune attack.

  2. Has signed the current approved informed consent form.
  3. Has a histologically confirmed diagnosis of malignant melanoma.
  4. Has at least two separate cutaneous lesions suitable for punch biopsies (at least 3 mm diameter).
  5. For women of childbearing potential and men, agree to use a highly effective method of contraceptive from screening, through the study, and for at least 4 weeks after the last dose of study drug.
  6. For women of childbearing potential, must have a negative pregnancy test (serum or urine) on Day 1 prior to initiating study treatment, and are not nursing.
  7. Be willing and able to comply with the schedule, treatment, and biopsies specified by this protocol.

Exclusion Criteria:

Patients with any of the following will be excluded from participation in the study:

  1. Has performance status Grade 2 or higher (Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group [ECOG] criteria).
  2. Has ongoing acute clinical adverse events NCI CTCAE Grade 2 or greater resulting from prior cancer therapies (except alopecia).
  3. Has had within the past 6 months the occurrence or persistence of one or more of the following medical conditions that could not be controlled with usual medical care (e.g., required emergency care or hospitalization): angina, congestive heart failure, diabetes, seizure disorder.
  4. Has had within the past 6 months the occurrence of one or more of the following events: myocardial infarction, cerebrovascular accident, hemorrhage (CTC Grade 3 or 4), chronic liver disease (meeting criteria for Child-Pugh Class B or C), a second active malignancy requiring ongoing treatment during the trial, organ transplantation.
  5. Has had within the 4 weeks prior to initiation of study drug, or is expected to have during the study period, surgery requiring general anesthesia
  6. Has, at screening, serologic laboratory tests meeting one or more of the following criteria:

    • An indeterminate or positive test for antibody to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV-1 or -2).
