Phase I-II

First-in-human, Open-label, Dose-escalation Trial With Expansion Cohorts to Evaluate Safety of GEN1047 in Subjects With Malignant Solid Tumors

  • Study HIC#:2000031529
  • Last Updated:09/12/2023

The drug that will be investigated in the study is an antibody, GEN1047. Since this is the first study of GEN1047 in humans, the main purpose is to evaluate safety. Besides safety, the study will determine the recommended GEN1047 dose to be tested in a larger group of participants and assess preliminary clinical activity of GEN1047. GEN1047 will be studied in a broad group of cancer patients, having different kinds of solid tumors. All participants will get GEN1047. The study consists of two parts: Part 1 tests increasing doses of GEN1047 ("escalation"), followed by Part 2 ("expansion") which tests the recommended GEN1047 dose from Part 1.

    Trial Purpose and Description

    The trial is an open-label, multi-center safety trial of GEN1047. The trial consists of two parts: a dose escalation part ("escalation" - phase 1) and an expansion part ("expansion" - phase 2a). The goal of the dose escalation part is to find out if GEN1047 is safe in patients with specific solid tumors and to find the best dose. The best dose is the so-called Recommended Phase 2 Dose (RP2D). The expansion part of the trial (phase 2a) will be initiated once the RP2D has been determined from phase 1.

    Eligibility Criteria

    Key Inclusion Criteria:

    Dose escalation part:

    • Participants must have histologically or cytologically confirmed solid tumor(s) in any of the following selected indications for which there is no further available standard therapy likely to confer clinical benefit (or participant is not a candidate or has previously refused such earlier available therapy), and for whom, in the opinion of the investigator, experimental therapy with GEN1047 may be beneficial (breast cancer, uterine cancer, ovarian cancer, NSCLC-SCC).

    Expansion part:

    • Participant must have an advanced or metastatic, pathologically confirmed diagnosis of one of the following tumors for which there is no further available standard therapy likely to confer clinical benefit (or participant is not a candidate or has previously refused such available therapy), and for whom, in the opinion of the investigator, experimental therapy with GEN1047 may be beneficial (breast cancer, uterine cancer, ovarian cancer, NSCLC-SCC). For all indications: Participants may have received up to 4 prior systemic treatment regimens for advanced/metastatic disease (maintenance treatment is considered being part of 1 treatment line).

    Both, dose escalation and expansion part:

    • Participant must sign and ICF, prior to any screening procedures
    • Participants with ovarian cancer:

      • Must have documented progressive disease.
      • CA-125 positivity according to the Gynecologic Cancer Intergroup Guideline (GCIG) with a pretreatment sample that is at least twice the upper limit of the reference range.
    • Either recurrence after, or progression on or lack of response to established standard of care (SOC) anticancer therapies; or are deemed intolerant to or ineligible for, standard curative therapy in the recurrent setting.
    • At least 1 measurable lesion per RECIST v1.1. The measurable lesion(s) must be outside the field of radiation therapy (RT) if there was prior treatment with RT.
    • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group performance status (ECOG-PS) score of 0 to 1
    • Should provide a tumor tissue sample during the Screening period and prior to C1D1.
    • Must have acceptable laboratory parameters as specified in the protocol.
    • Provide all pre-trial CT scans since failure of last prior therapy (eg, documenting radiographic progression), if available.

    Key Exclusion Criteria (dose escalation and expansion part):

    • Exclusions related to cardiovascular disease

      • Symptomatic congestive heart failure (grade III or IV as classified by the New York Heart Association), unstable angina pectoris or cardiac arrhythmia.
      • History of myocardial infarction within 6 months prior to planned start of GEN1047.
      • Uncontrolled hypertension defined as systolic blood pressure ≥160 mmHg and/or diastolic blood pressure ≥100 mmHg, despite optimal medical management. Prolonged QTc interval >480 milliseconds using Fridericia's QT correction formula.
      • Any other cardiac disease(s) not listed that, in the opinion of the investigator, is/are clinically significant and/or unacceptable.
    • Exclusions related to the central nervous system

      • Participant has any history of intracerebral arteriovenous malformation, cerebral aneurysm, new (within the last 6 months) or symptomatic brain metastases, spinal cord compression (from disease), or stroke. (Transient ischemic attack >1 month prior to Screening is allowed.)
      • Participants with known unstable CNS metastases and any active or history of carcinomatous meningitis will be excluded. Participants with previously treated brain metastases may participate provided they are radiologically stable (ie, without evidence of progression) for at least 28 days by repeat imaging prior to C1D1. Participants should be clinically stable and should not be undergoing steroid taper or have received stereotactic radiation or whole-brain radiation within 14 days prior to C1D1. Chronic steroid therapy is acceptable provided that the dose is stable for the last 14 days prior to C1D1 (≤10 mg prednisone daily or equivalent, corresponding to a maximum administration exposure of ≤140 mg within 14 days).
      • A participant with new or progressive brain metastases. Spinal cord metastasis is acceptable. However, participants with spinal cord compression should be excluded.
    • Participant has been exposed to any of the following prior therapies within the specified timeframes:

      • Radiotherapy: Radiotherapy within 14 days prior to first GEN1047 administration. Palliative radiotherapy will be allowed.
      • The use of RANK-L inhibitors and bisphosphonates (if on stable dose for at least 4 weeks) is permitted while participating in this trial. However, the initiation of growth factors and bisphosphonates is not allowed during the first 4 weeks of GEN1047 administration, unless agreed upon by the investigator and sponsor medical monitor.
