Brief Summary:

This is an open-label, Phase 1, 2-part study to determine the recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D) and evaluate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetic, and pharmacodynamic profiles of AGEN1571 both as a monotherapy and in combination with balstilimab and/or botensilimab (2-agent combination or 3-agent combination) in participants diagnosed with advanced solid tumors.

Part 1 will be the dose escalation phase to determine the RP2D of AGEN1571 monotherapy or AGEN1571 in combination with balstilimab and/or botensilimab. Part 2 will be the dose expansion phase for specific disease indications. Participants will receive study treatment for up to 2 years, or until any disease progression, unacceptable toxicity, or participant wishes to withdraw consent for any reason.

    1. Adequate hematological function, defined as absolute neutrophil count ≥1.5 × 10^9/liter (L), platelet count ≥100 × 10^9/L, and hemoglobin ≥8 grams (g)/deciliter (dL) without recent transfusion (defined as a transfusion that has occurred within 2 weeks of the hemoglobin measurement).
    2. Adequate liver function, defined as serum albumin >3 g/dL, total bilirubin level ≤1.5 × institutional upper limit of normal (IULN), aspartate aminotransferase ≤2.5 × IULN, and alanine aminotransferase ≤2.5 × IULN, and alkaline phosphatase ≤2.5 × IULN or ≤5 × ULN for participants with liver metastases.
    3. Adequate renal function defined as calculated creatinine clearance ≥40 milliliters/minute as assessed by Cockcroft-Gault method.
    4. Adequate coagulation, defined as international normalized ratio or prothrombin time ≤1.5 × IULN and activated partial thromboplastin time ≤1.5 × IULN (unless participant is receiving anticoagulant therapy).
  7. Participants with a history of prior malignancy are eligible if treatment was completed ≥2 years prior to the first dose of study treatment and the participant has no evidence of disease. Participants with a history of prior early-stage basal/squamous cell skin cancer, or noninvasive or in situ cancers, who have undergone definitive treatment at any time are also eligible.
  8. Participants must provide a sufficient and adequate formalin-fixed paraffin embedded tumor tissue sample (fresh biopsy) collected within 28 days before the first dose from a site not previously irradiated and agree to a mandatory on-treatment biopsy, if clinically feasible. If a potential study participant cannot provide a tumor tissue sample as specified above, enrollment may be possible following discussion and approval from the Medical Monitor.
  9. Female participants of childbearing potential must have a negative urine or serum pregnancy test at screening (within 72 hours of first dose of study medication) with repeat urine or serum pregnancy test of Day 1 of each cycle and at the end of treatment visit. Non-childbearing potential is defined as:

    1. ≥50 years of age and has not had menses for greater than 1 year.
    2. Amenorrheic for ≥2 years without a hysterectomy and bilateral oophorectomy and a follicle-stimulating hormone value in the postmenopausal range upon pre-study (screening) evaluation.
    3. Status is post hysterectomy, bilateral oophorectomy, or tubal ligation.

    Female participants of child-bearing potential must agree to use highly effective contraceptive measures starting with the screening visit through 90 days after the last dose of study treatment.

    Note: Abstinence is acceptable if this is the established and preferred contraception for the participant.

  10. Male participants with a female partner(s) of childbearing potential must agree to use highly effective contraceptive measures throughout the study starting with the screening visit through 90 days after the last dose of study treatment is received. Males with pregnant partners must agree to use a condom; no additional method of contraception is required for the pregnant partner.

    Note: Abstinence is acceptable if this is the established and preferred contraception for the participant.

  11. Willing and able to comply with the requirements of the protocol.

Exclusion Criteria:

  14. Legally incapacitated or has limited legal capacity.
  15. Pregnant or breastfeeding.
  16. Corrected QT interval (QTc) >480 milliseconds at screening except if the prolonged QTc is due to right bundle branch block.
