Phase Ib, open-label, multi-center study to characterize the safety, tolerability and pharmacodynamics (PD) of PDR001 in combination with CJM112, EGF816, Ilaris® (canakinumab) or Mekinist® (trametinib) (CPDR001X2103)
Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center in Baltimore
The purpose of this study is to combine the PDR001 checkpoint inhibitor with each of four agents with immunomodulatory activity to identify the doses and schedule for combination therapy and to preliminarily assess the safety, tolerability, pharmacological and clinical activity of these combinations.
Ages Eligible for Study: 18 Years and older (Adult, Senior)Inclusion Criteria:•Patients with advanced/metastatic cancer, with measurable disease as determined by RECIST version 1.1, who have progressed despite standard therapy or are intolerant to standard therapy, and for whom no effective therapy is available.Patients must fit into one of the following groups:•Colorectal cancer (CRC) (not mismatch repair deficient by local assay including PCR and/or immunohistochemistry)•Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) (adenocarcinoma)•Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC) (D•ECOG Performance Status equal to 2•Patient must have a site of disease amenable to biopsy, and be a candidate for tumor biopsy according to the treating institution's guidelines.

Note: Patient with latent TB may be eligible based on the investigator's benefit-risk assessment.•Patients who have been infected with HBV or HCV including those with inactive disease.Additional exclusion criteria for Combination arm PDR001+CJM112•Patients with TB. Note: Patient with latent TB may be eligible based on the investigator's benefit-risk assessment.•Patients with history of and/or active inflammatory bowel disease.•Active skin or soft tissue infection including cellulitis, erysipelas, impetigo, furuncle,carbuncle, abscess, or fasciitis.•Active candida infection, including mucocutaneous infection or history of invasive candidiasis.Additional exclusion criteria for Combination arm PDR001+trametinib•Patients with history of retinal vein oclusion.•Patients with history of interstitial lung disease or pneumonitis.•Patients with cardiomyopathy and/or LVEF less than LLN.•Impairment of gastrointestinal function or GI disease that may significantly alter the absorption of oral combination partners.•Hemoglobin (Hgb) less than 9 g/dL without growth factor or transfusion support•Women of child-bearing potential using hormonal contraception, unless an additional contraception method is also used according to the Mekinist® label.Additional exclusion criteria for Combination arm PDR001+EGF816•NSCLC patients with EGFR mutant tumors.•Strong inhibitors and strong inducers of CYP3A4 should not be used concomitantly.•Patients with history of interstitial lung disease.•Patients who have been infected with HBV or HCV including those with inactive disease.•Impairment of gastrointestinal function or GI disease that may significantly alter the absorption of oral combination partners•Patients cannot have received radiotherapy to lung fields within 6 months of study treatment start.Other protocol-defined exclusion criteria may apply.
