Eligibility Criteria


Patients eligible for inclusion in this study must meet all of the following criteria:

Be willing and able to provide written informed consent for the trial.
Written informed consent must be obtained prior to any study procedures.
Age ≥18 years (or ≥16 years at Dana Farber Cancer Institute).

Histologically- or cytologically-confirmed relapsed/refractory metastatic or locally-advanced solid tumor or lymphoma whose disease has progressed despite all appropriate curative or life-prolonging treatments, are intolerant to these therapies or have refused standard treatment.

Inclusion criteria: RPTR-147:1 (Arms A & B) treatment groups

Cohort enrollment may be limited to potentially immune-responsive tumor types meeting the above criterion during the first approximately 2 weeks of the enrollment period of each cohort due to their potential to respond to and activate RPTR-147:1:

Clear cell cancer of the kidney
Urothelial cancer
Ovarian Cancer
Based upon emerging data that will be discussed during the Safety Review Committee meetings, the patient population may be further limited based other factors
Inclusion criteria: RPTR-147:2 (Arm C) treatment group Patients with cancers known to be HPV-16 positive.

Patient must have documented HLA-typing results that meet the study requirements. The list of eligible HLA alleles will be updated on an ongoing basis by the Sponsor.

• Once sufficient data has been collected for drug product analytics, or sufficient HLA coverage is obtained, the HLA-type eligibility requirement may be discontinued by the Sponsor.

For patients with solid tumors, use Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumor (RECIST) v1.1: measurable disease (at least one measurable non-nodal lesion of at least 1.0 cm in longest diameter or nodal lesion of at least 1.5 cm in shortest diameter) documented within 10 weeks of their projected C1D1 visit.

For patients with lymphoma, use the Lugano classification: measurable disease defined as at least one lesion that can be accurately measured in at least two dimensions with spiral computed tomography (CT) scan documented within 10 weeks of their projected C1D1 visit. Minimum measurement must be >15 mm in the longest diameter.

NOTE: If there are no pre-existing radiologic assessments within 10 weeks of the projected C1D1 visit, other evidence of measurable disease may be considered sufficient to fulfill this criterion following documented discussion and approval from the Sponsor.

NOTE: Please note, for dosing/Screening Period 2, patients must have a radiological assessment per mRECIST v1.1 (solid tumor) or Lugano classification (lymphomas) within 28 days before receiving treatment with RPTR-147 to serve as the patient's baseline tumor assessment.

Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) Performance Status ≤1.

Have provided archival tumor tissue sample or newly obtained core or excisional biopsy, during screening period 2, of a tumor lesion not previously irradiated. Formalin-fixed, paraffin embedded (FFPE) tissue blocks are preferred to slides. Newly obtained biopsies are preferred to archived tissue. Further details can be found in the Laboratory Manual.

Note: If submitting unstained cut slides, newly cut slides should be submitted to the testing laboratory within 14 days from the date slides are cut.

RPTR-147:1 in combination with pembrolizumab (Arm B only) - Patients should have malignancies for which the response rate to anti-PD1/PDL1 monotherapy is <20% or, if they have malignancies for which anti-PD1/PDL1 are standard of care must have progressed on treatment with an anti-PD1/L1 monoclonal antibody (mAb) administered either as monotherapy, or in combination with other checkpoint inhibitors or other therapies. PD-1 treatment progression is defined by meeting all of the following criteria:

Has received at least 2 doses of an approved anti-PD-1/L1 mAb.
Has demonstrated disease progression (PD) after PD-1/L1 as defined by RECIST v1.1. The initial evidence of PD is to be confirmed by a second assessment no less than four weeks from the date of the first documented PD, in the absence of rapid clinical progression.
Progressive disease has been documented as per the following within 12 weeks from the last dose of anti-PD-1/L1 mAb.

A female participant is eligible to participate if she is not pregnant, not breastfeeding, and at least one of the following conditions applies:
