Summary

This study is for patients that have already received standard treatments for their cancer and their cancer has gotten worse or returned after their last treatment. The purpose of this study is to learn about the effects of the study drug XL092 when given alone, in combination with atezolizumab, and in combination with avelumab by testing its safety, the ability of your body to accept the drug(s), to measure the drug(s) and/or its break-down products levels in your blood, and how your body reacts to the drug(s). This research study will be the first time XL092 alone or in combination with atezolizumab will be given to people. The study drugs in this research have not been approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). There are two parts in this study, a Dose Escalation part and a Cohort Expansion part. The first part of the study was the Dose Escalation phase, when different participants were given different doses of the study drug until the safest, most effective dose was found; this part of the study has been completed. The study is now enrolling to the Cohort Expansion part of this study, where the dose that has been determined to be safe will be given to more participants with different types of cancer. The Dose Escalation part of this study has stopped and the safe dose has been found. This study is now enrolling to the Cohort Expansion part of this study, where the safe dose of the study drug found in the Dose Escalation part will be given to more participants with different types of cancer. Participants will either be assigned to the treatment group that will receive XL092 alone or the treatment group that XL092 in combination with atezolizumab. Which treatment group they are assigned depends on the type of cancer they have. TXL092 is in tablet form taken by mouth. Avelumab will be given as an intravenous (IV) infusion once every 2 weeks at the study site. Atezolizumab will be given as an intravenous (IV) infusion once every 3 weeks at the study site. Total study duration is expected to be about 6 months but participants could be in the study for up to 2 years.

A Phase 1b Study of ASP1951, a GITR Agonistic Antibody, as a Single Agent and in Combination with Pembrolizumab in Subjects with Advanced Solid Tumors

Keywords
Cancer, Cancer/Gastrointestinal, Cancer/Genitourinary, Cancer/Gynecological, Cancer/Head & Neck, Cancer/Lung, Drug Studies, Men's Health, Women's Health
Summary

This study is for patients that have a tumor that cannot be removed through surgery (unresectable) or may have spread (metastasized) to other parts of their body. In this study, ASP1951 will be given alone (monotherapy) or combined with pembrolizumab (combination therapy). Both ASP1951 and pembrolizumab will be considered study drug. Pembrolizumab has been approved by FDA for use in patients with skin, lung, cervical cancer, certain cancers of head and neck and other cancers but may not be approved to treat all types of cancer. However, the use of ASP1951 plus pembrolizumab has not been approved by regulatory authorities and is therefore investigational. The study consists of 3 periods: screening (up to 28 days), treatment (up to 48 weeks [16 cycles]) and follow up (up to 45 weeks), followed by an optional re-treatment period for participants that qualify. The re-treatment period will allow participants to receive study drug treatment again for up to 16 additional cycles (approximately 48 weeks), for a maximum total treatment and re-treatment period of 32 cycles (approximately 96 weeks). Both study drugs are administered intravenously (into the vein).This is the first time the investigational study drug ASP1951 is being tested in humans; however, studies in animals showed that the study drug is safe to be tested in humans.

Summary

The purpose of this study is to find out if we can prolong your survival by delivering the chemotherapy drug through an artery that goes directly into your pancreas and to find out if this experimental approach is better or worse than the usual approach for your pancreatic cancer. All subjects will receive induction therapy of IV gemcitabine plus nab-paclitaxel, as well as radiation therapy for approximately four months. Subjects who remain eligible will then be randomized to receive either intra-arterial chemotherapy with gemcitabine; or to continue gemcitabine plus nab-paclitaxel. Subjects will receive the randomized treatments for up to 16 weeks or until progression. Both groups will receive either IV gemcitabine and nab-paclitaxel or oral capecitabine following the 16 week treatment course until disease progression at the discretion of the Investigator.
