Lung Cancer Clinical Trial
GRN-1201 With Pembrolizumab in Subjects With Metastatic PD-L1+ NSCLC
This is a non-randomized, Phase 2, 2-stage, open-label, multi-center study of GRN-1201/sargramostim + pembrolizumab in subjects with PD-L1+ metastatic NSCLC. All subjects will have newly diagnosed metastatic PD-L1+ (TPS ≥ 50%) NSCLC with no epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) or anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) genomic tumor aberrations. Subjects with EGFR or ALK genomic tumor aberrations with progression on FDA-approved therapy for these aberrations are eligible
This is a non-randomized, Phase 2, 2-stage, open-label, multi-center study of GRN-1201/sargramostim + pembrolizumab in subjects with metastatic PD-L1+ NSCLC.
All subjects will have newly diagnosed metastatic PD-L1+ (TPS ≥ 50%) NSCLC with no epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) or anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) genomic tumor aberrations.
The study will follow a Simon two-stage design with up to 64 total subjects enrolled. All subjects will receive GRN-1201 at 3.0 mg in combination with 75 µg sargramostim and 200 mg pembrolizumab.
GRN-1201 is to be administered once weekly for 4 weeks followed by every 3-week dosing for an additional 12 doses (16 total doses of GRN-1201). Each dose of GRN-1201 will be given as 1 mL divided into 4 separate 0.25 mL intradermal injections on each day of treatment. Pembrolizumab is to be given every 3 weeks for up to a total of 35 doses.
This study will consist of a screening period of up to 28 days; a treatment period consisting of GRN-1201/sargramostim administered weekly for 4 weeks (4 doses) followed by administration every 3 weeks for 12 additional doses . Pembrolizumab is to be given every 3 weeks for up to a total of 35 doses.
A follow up visit will occur approximately 4 weeks after the last administration of treatment for the study. In addition, all subjects will be followed for evaluation of disease progression and survival

Has known active central nervous system (CNS) metastases NOTE: Subjects with previously treated brain metastases may participate provided they are stable (without evidence of progression by imaging [using the identical imaging modality for each assessment, either magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computerized tomography (CT) scan] for at least four weeks prior to the first dose of study treatment and any neurologic symptoms have returned to baseline), have no evidence of new or enlarging brain metastases, and are not using steroids for at least 7 days prior to study treatment;
