Melanoma Clinical Trial
Dose Escalation Study of WTX-124 as Monotherapy and in Combination With Pembrolizumab (Pembro) in Patients With Selected Advanced or Metastatic Solid Tumors
A first-in-human, Phase I, open-label, multicenter study of WTX-124 administered as monotherapy and in combination with pembrolizumab to patients with advanced solid tumors.
This is a first-in-human, Phase I, open-label, multicenter study designed to evaluate the safety, tolerability and preliminary efficacy of WTX-124, a conditionally-activated IL-2 prodrug, when administered as monotherapy and in combination with pembrolizumab, for the treatment of patients with advanced solid tumors. Part 1 of the study is dose escalation of WTX-124, both as monotherapy and in combination with pembrolizumab. Part 2 is comprised of four arms in which WTX-124 will be administered as monotherapy and in combination with pembrolizumab to patients with advanced or metastatic cutaneous malignant melanoma or advanced or metastatic renal cell carcinoma.
Each patient must meet all the following criteria to participate in the study:
Has histological or cytological documentation of a solid tumor indication for which a CPI (e.g. anti-PD-(L)1 is indicated for all parts of the clinical study;
≥18 years of age;
Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) Performance Status of 0 or 1;
Has at least 1 measurable lesion per RECIST 1.1(lesions situated in a previously irradiated area are considered measurable if progression has been demonstrated in such lesions);
Agrees to undergo a pre-treatment and on-treatment biopsy of a primary or metastatic solid tumor lesion;
Has adequate organ and bone marrow function:
Willingness of men and women of reproductive potential to observe highly effective birth control for the duration of treatment and for 4 months following the last dose of study drug;
Additional criteria may apply
Have a history of another active malignancy (a second cancer) within the previous 2 years except for localized cancers that are not related to the current cancer being treated, are considered cured, and, in the opinion of the Investigator, presents a low risk of recurrence. These exceptions include, but are not limited to, basal or squamous cell skin cancer, superficial bladder cancer, or carcinoma in situ of the prostate, cervix, or breast;
Has a history of (non-infectious) pneumonitis / interstitial lung disease that required steroids or has current pneumonitis / interstitial lung disease;

Investigational agent or anticancer therapy within 5 half-lives or 4 weeks (whichever is shorter) prior to the first dose of study drug;
Has received prior radiotherapy within 2 weeks of start of study treatment. A 1-week washout is permitted for palliative radiation (≤2 weeks of radiotherapy) to non-CNS disease;
Any unresolved toxicities from prior therapy greater than NCI CTCAE version 5.0 Grade 1 at the time of starting study drug with the exception of alopecia and Grade 2 prior platinum-therapy related neuropathy;
Received a live or live-attenuated vaccine within 30 days of the first dose of study drug; Note: Administration of killed vaccines or other formats are allowed.
Active, uncontrolled systemic bacterial, viral, or fungal infection;
HIV-infected participants with a history of Kaposi sarcoma and/or Multicentric Castleman Disease;
Active infection as determined by hepatitis B surface antigen and hepatitis B core antibody, or hepatitis B virus DNA by quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) testing;
Active infection as determined by hepatitis C virus (HCV) antibody or HCV RNA by qPCR testing;
