Eligibility Details Visit Clinicaltrials.gov

A Phase 1 Dose Escalation and Cohort Expansion Study of TSR-022, an Anti-TIM-3 Monoclonal Antibody, in Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors (AMBER)

This is a first-in-human study evaluating the anti-T cell immunoglobulin and mucin containing protein-3 (TIM-3) antibody TSR-022. The study will be conducted in 2 parts with Part 1 consisting of dose escalation and Part 2 dose expansion. Part 1 will determine the recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D) of TSR-022 and Part 2 will evaluate the antitumor activity of TSR-022 in combination with TSR-042 or docetaxel and as monotherapy

         - Biopsies -All participants enrolled must undergo a biopsy prior to study entry, and the biopsy tissue must be submitted to the central laboratory for all participants in order to determine TIM 3 expression level prior to first dose. If a participant has had a biopsy prior to entering the 35-day screening period and within approximately 12 weeks of study treatment, that biopsy may be accepted as the Baseline fresh biopsy.

        Inclusion Criteria for Participants in Part 2 Cohort E

         - Participant is greater than or equal to (>=)18 years old, is able to understand the study procedures, and agrees to participate in the study by providing written informed consent which includes compliance with the requirements and restrictions listed in the Informed consent form (ICF) and protocol.

         - Participant has histologically or cytologically proven advanced or metastatic NSCLC, and only squamous or nonsquamous cell carcinoma.

         - Participant has received no more than 2 prior lines of therapy for advanced or metastatic disease, which must only include a platinum-based (eg, cisplatin, carboplatin) doublet chemotherapy regimen and an anti-PD-1 or anti-PD-L1 antibody (no other biologic agents alone or in combination; novel combinations are not allowed).

If there is only 1 target lesion that was previously irradiated, the participant is not eligible.

         - Participant has documented radiological disease progression on prior platinum-based chemotherapy and on prior anti-PD-1 or anti-PD-L1 therapy according to RECIST v1.1.

         - Participant agrees to submit an archival formalin fixed paraffin embedded (FFPE) tumor tissue specimen that was collected on or after diagnosis of metastatic disease from location(s) not irradiated prior to biopsy. Both tissue block and freshly cut slides are acceptable. If archival tissue is not available, the participant must undergo biopsy prior to study entry.

         - Participant has known uncontrolled central nervous system (CNS) metastases and/or carcinomatous meningitis.

         - Participant has a known additional malignancy that progressed or required active treatment within the last 2 years. Participants with a prior or concurrent malignancy whose natural history or treatment does not have the potential to interfere with the safety or efficacy assessment of the investigational regimen may be included only after discussion with the Medical Monitor.

         - Participant is considered a poor medical risk due to a serious, uncontrolled medical disorder, nonmalignant systemic disease or active infection requiring systemic therapy.

         - Participant is pregnant or breastfeeding, or expecting to conceive children within the projected duration of the study, starting with the Screening Visit through 150 days after the last dose of study treatment.

         - Participant has a diagnosis of immunodeficiency or is receiving systemic steroid therapy or any other form of immunosuppressive therapy within 7 days prior to the first dose of study treatment.

        Exclusion Criteria for Participants in Part 2 Cohort D

         - A participant with negative (as determined by Central Testing Lab) or unevaluable TIM-3 expression from tissue obtained prior to study entry will not be eligible for the study.

         - Participant has received prior therapy as defined below:

         - Prior treatment with anti-PD-1, anti-PD-L1, or anti-PD-L2 agent that resulted in permanent discontinuation due to an AE.

         - Prior treatment with an anti-lymphocyte activation gene (LAG)-3 or anti-TIM-3.

         - Participant has known human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) (positive for HIV 1 or HIV 2 antibodies).

         - Participant has active autoimmune disease that required systemic treatment in the past 2 years, is immunocompromised in the opinion of the Investigator, or is receiving systemic immunosuppressive treatment. Replacement therapy (eg, thyroxine, insulin, or physiologic corticosteroid replacement therapy of prednisone, or equivalent, for adrenal or pituitary insufficiency) is not considered a form of systemic treatment.

         - Participant has received systemic steroid therapy within 3 days prior to the first dose of the study treatment or is receiving any other form of immunosuppressive medication. Replacement therapy is not considered a form of systemic therapy. Use of inhaled corticosteroids, local steroid injection, or steroid eye drops is allowed.
