  • Study to Assess AFM24 in Advanced Solid Cancers

    AFM24-101 is a first in human Phase 1 / 2a open-label, non-randomized, multi-center, multiple ascending dose escalation / expansion study evaluating AFM24 as monotherapy in patients with advanced solid malignancies whose disease has progressed after treatment with previous anticancer therapies. There will be two parts to this study: a dose escalation phase (1) and a dose expansion phase (2a). The aim of the dose escalation phase is to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and establish the recommended Phase 2a dose (RP2D). The dose escalation phase will be followed by the dose expansion phase once the MTD / RP2D of AFM24 monotherapy has been determined. The dose expansion phase of the study using the MTD / P2D is intended to collect preliminary evidence of efficacy and to further confirm the safety of AFM24 as a monotherapy. The expansion phase will have 4 arms based on tumor type of metastatic colorectal cancer and non-small cell lung cancer. AFM24 is a tetravalent bispecific (anti-human EGFR x anti-human CD16A) innate immune cell engaging recombinant antibody construct being developed to target EGFR-expressing solid tumors . and has been designed to specifically utilize the cytotoxic potential of the innate immune system, in particular natural killer cells and macrophages for the specific and efficient elimination of EGFR-positive cancer cells.

  • APX005M With Concurrent Chemoradiation for Resectable Esophageal and Gastroesophageal Junction Cancers

    This pilot phase II trial studies the side effects of CD40 agonistic monoclonal antibody APX005M (APX005M), chemotherapy, and radiation therapy, and to see how well they work when given before surgery in treating patients with esophageal cancer or gastroesophageal cancer that can be removed by surgery. APX005M is intended to stimulate the body's own immune system so that the immune cells can more effectively invade and destroy the tumor, adding to the benefits of the chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as carboplatin and paclitaxel, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Radiation therapy uses high energy x-rays to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Giving APX005M, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy before surgery may make the tumor smaller and reduce the amount of normal tissue that needs to be removed.

  • Personalized Cancer Therapy in Treating Participants with Metastatic or Unresectable Cancers

    This pilot trial studies how well personalized cancer therapy works in treating participants with cancer that has spread to other places in the body or cannot be removed by surgery. Personalized cancer therapy is the practice of making decisions about what kind of treatment participants should receive based on the genetic makeup of the tumor. Genes in your body encode certain characteristics such as height, eye and hair color. Researchers believe that abnormal genes in tumors may affect how individuals respond to cancer treatments. Collecting information about tests and treatments received will help researchers describe if patients respond better when their physicians choose to treat them according to the genetic makeup of their tumor.
