Brief Summary:
ARTemIS-Eso is a phase I-II, three-level, open-label trial with a dose-expansion cohort at recommended schedule in both esophageal cancer histological groups (squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma) of RCT and ImT administered prior to surgery.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Adenocarcinoma of the Esophagus Adenocarcinoma of the Gastroesophageal Junction Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Esophagus Drug: Monalizumab Drug: Oxaliplatin Drug: 5-Fluorouracil Radiation: Metabolic Other: Metabolic Procedure: Surgery Phase 1 Phase 2

Detailed Description:

This study is indicated to patients with adenocarcinomas of the esophagus or gastro-esophageal junction and squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus.

The study consists of 2 parts:

Phase I of the study is composed of the 3 following levels, corresponding to changes in the schedule and the number of administrations of monalizumab:

Level 1: monalizumab (ImT) administration starts 2 weeks after the end of RCT (Total of 3 ImT doses). A maximum of 7 days delay is allowed.

Level 2: monalizumab administration starts directly at the end of RCT (Total of 4 ImT doses). The first dose of monalizumab should be given on the following working day after the last radiotherapy administration.

Level 3: monalizumab administration starts 2 weeks after the start of RCT (total of 6 ImT doses). A maximum of 7 days delay is allowed.

Phase II (Expansion cohort): At the recommended level determined in phase I and according to the number of patients already accrued, approximately 48-51 additional patients (half-SCC and half-ADC) are included with the aim of assessing the activity of the recommended combination.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Single arm (classic 3+3 design) Drug: Monalizumab
Monalizumab (IPH2201) is given at the recommended dose of 10 mg/kg, intravenously (infusion during 60 minutes) every two weeks
Other Name: IPH2201

Drug: Oxaliplatin
A total of 4 cycles of FOLFOX is administrated every 2 weeks with one cycle 15 days prior to the radiotherapy and 3 cycles during the radiotherapy whatever the level

Drug: 5-Fluorouracil
A total of 4 cycles of FOLFOX is administrated every 2 weeks with one cycle 15 days prior to the radiotherapy and 3 cycles during the radiotherapy whatever the level

Radiation: Metabolic
Radiation therapy must start the first day of FOLFOX chemotherapy. Radiation is given once daily for 5 consecutive days; on the days that the patient receives chemotherapy (and monalizumab when applicable), chemotherapy (and monalizumab) should be given prior to radiotherapy.

Other: Metabolic
18-FDG-PET scan will be performed just before the beginning of radio-chemotherapy (D10-D14) and will be blinded for investigators and patients. Another 18-FDG-PET will be performed before surgery (surgery Day-5 to surgery Day -1) to exclude metastatic evolution
Other Name: FDG-PET

Procedure: Surgery
Surgery is performed preferably 8 weeks after the completion of the radio-chemotherapy, and it should not be performed less than one week after the last dose of monalizumab

    DFS and OS at 2 years after surgery

  3. Phase I: Human Anti-Human Antibodies against monalizumab (HAHA) in serum [ Time Frame: Week 5 to 3 months post surgery ]
    Human Anti-Human Antibodies against monalizumab (HAHA) in serum

  4. Phase II: Two year-disease free survival (DFS) and two year-overall survival (OS) [ Time Frame: 2 years after the date the last patient had his surgery provided the trial objectives have been met ]
    Two year-disease free survival (DFS) and two year-overall survival (OS)

  5. Phase II: Toxicity profile according to CTCAE v.4.03 [ Time Frame: From date of randomization until the date of first documented event, assessed up to 28 months ]
    Toxicity profile according to CTCAE v.4.03

  6. Phase II: Metabolic response after 1 course of CT and before surgery [ Time Frame: from week 1 up to the time of surgery ]
    Metabolic response after 1 course of CT and before surgery

  7. Phase II: Number of the tumour-infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs) [ Time Frame: at baseline, after 1 course of CT at week 3 and after surgery at 16 weeks ]
    Number of the tumour-infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs)
