Esophageal Cancer Clinical Trial

Phase Ib Study of TNO155 in Combination With Spartalizumab or Ribociclib in Selected Malignancies

Summary

This study is a Phase Ib, multi-center, open-label study of TNO155 in combination with spartalizumab or ribociclib with a dose escalation part followed by a dose expansion part in adult subjects with advanced solid tumors.

These two treatment arms will enroll subjects in parallel to characterize the safety, tolerability, PK, PD and preliminary antitumor activity.

The study treatment will be administered until the subject experiences unacceptable toxicity, progressive disease, and/or has treatment discontinued at the discretion of the Investigator or the subject, or due to withdrawal of consent.

Full Description

Rationale The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and preliminary efficacy of the combination of TNO155 with spartalizumab and of TNO155 with ribociclib, and to identify dosing regimens for further study. Data from preclinical models have demonstrated anti-tumor activity for the combinations of TNO155 with spartalizumab and of TNO155 with ribociclib that is superior to the activity observed with each of the drugs as single agents. These data suggest that these combinations may provide clinical benefit to patients with advanced malignancies.

Study Design This study is a Phase Ib, multi-center, open-label study with a dose escalation part followed by a dose expansion part in adult subjects with advanced solid tumors to characterize the safety and tolerability TNO155 in combination with spartalizumab and of TNO155 in combination with ribociclib and to identify the MTD and/or recommended regimen (dose and schedule) for each combination. The study treatment will be administered until the subject experiences unacceptable toxicity, progressive disease, and/or has treatment discontinued at the discretion of the Investigator or the subject, or due to withdrawal of consent.

Objectives

Primary objective:

To characterize the safety and tolerability TNO155 in combination with spartalizumab and of TNO155 in combination with ribociclib, and to identify the MTD and/or recommended regimen (dose and schedule) for each combination.

Secondary objectives:

To characterize the pharmacokinetic (PK) profile of TNO155, spartalizumab and ribociclib when administered as a combination of TNO155 plus spartalizumab or of TNO155 plus ribociclib.
To evaluate the preliminary anti-tumor activity of TNO155 in combination with spartalizumab and of TNO155 in combination with ribociclib.

Eligibility Criteria

Key Inclusion Criteria:

Signed informed consent must be obtained prior to participation in the study.
Age ≥ 18 years. For Japan only: written consent is necessary both from the patient and his/her legal representative if he/she is under the age of 20 years.
ECOG (Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group) performance status ≤ 1.

Dose escalation part: Patients with advanced solid tumors, with evaluable disease as determined by RECIST version 1.1, and fit into one of the following groups:

a. For TNO155 plus spartalizumab combination: i. Advanced EGFR WT, ALK WT NSCLC, after progression on or intolerance to platinum-containing combination chemotherapy and after progression on anti-PD-1 or anti-immunotherapy-drugs-are-boosting-survival/" >PD-L1 therapy.

ii. Advanced HNSCC or esophageal SCC, after progression on or intolerance to platinum-containing combination chemotherapy.

iii. Advanced CRC, after progression on or intolerance to all standard-of-care (SOC) therapy per local guidelines.

b. For TNO155 plus ribociclib combination: Advanced solid malignancies with the exception of CRC or GIST, after progression on or intolerance to all SOC therapy per local guidelines. The exclusion of CRC applies only as of Protocol Amendment 4.

Dose expansion part: Patients with advanced solid tumors, with at least one measurable lesion as determined by RECIST version 1.1, who fit into one of the following groups:

a. For TNO155 plus spartalizumab combination: i. Advanced EGFR WT, ALK WT, KRAS G12C NSCLC after progression on or intolerance to platinum-containing combination chemotherapy and after progression on anti-PD-1 or anti-PD-L1 therapy.

ii. Advanced EGFR WT, ALK WT, KRAS WT NSCLC, after progression on or intolerance to platinum-containing combination chemotherapy and after progression on anti-PD-1 or anti-PD-L1 therapy.

iii. Advanced HNSCC, after progression on or intolerance to, platinum-containing combination chemotherapy.

b. For TNO155 plus ribociclib combination: i. Advanced EGFR WT, ALK WT, KRAS WT NSCLC, after progression on or intolerance to platinum-containing chemotherapy and anti-PD-1 or anti-PD-L1 therapy ii. Advanced HNSCC, after progression on or intolerance to all SOC per local guidelines

Patients with NSCLC whose tumors harbor genomic aberrations for which SOC targeted therapies exist and are locally approved and available must have had progression on or after, or intolerance to, the SOC targeted therapy/therapies as indicated
Patients must have a site of disease amenable to biopsy

Key Exclusion Criteria:

Prior treatment with a MAPK pathway inhibitor
Clinically significant cardiac disease or risk factors
Use of any agent known to prolong the QT interval unless it can be permanently discontinued for the duration of study (see list in Section 6.2.2).
History or current evidence of retinal vein occlusion (RVO) or current risk factors for RVO
Inflammatory bowel disease (e.g., ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease) or impairment of gastrointestinal (GI) function or GI disease that may significantly alter the absorption of study drugs

Insufficient hepatic or renal function at screening:

Serum total bilirubin > upper limit of normal (ULN) or, for TNO155 plus spartalizumab combination only, if liver metastases are present at baseline, serum total bilirubin > 1.5 x ULN. An exception for either combination is for patients with Gilbert's syndrome, who are excluded if total bilirubin > 3.0 x ULN or direct bilirubin > 1.5 x ULN
Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) or alanine aminotransferase (ALT) > 3 x ULN for TNO155 plus spartalizumab combination or > 2.5 x ULN for TNO155 plus ribociclib combination, or > 5 x ULN for either combination if liver metastases are present.

Additional exclusion criteria for the TNO155 plus ribociclib combination
