First-in-Human Study of XMT-1536 in Cancers Likely to Express NaPi2b

Trial Status: Active

First-in-human, Phase 1b / 2 safety study of the antibody-drug conjugate (ADC) XMT-1536 (upifitamab rilsodotin) administered as an intravenous infusion once every four weeks. Patients with tumor types likely to express NaPi2b were enrolled in dose escalation. Patients with platinum-resistant ovarian cancer and non-small cell lung cancer (adenocarcinoma subtype) are being enrolled in the expansion segment of this study. Patients with platinum-resistant, high-grade serous ovarian cancer are being enrolled in the UPLIFT segment of this study. In addition to safety assessments, the pharmacokinetics of the drug will be assessed along with ADC activity.

These patients must have platinum-resistant disease, defined as completing 4 or more cycles of platinum-based therapy and progressing within 6 months of last platinum-based therapy. 1. Patients with 4 lines of prior systemic therapy regardless of platinum sensitivity status may be enrolled at the Investigator's discretion and upon written approval by the Sponsor Medical Monitor. 2. Maintenance therapy, e.g., a PARP-inhibitor or bevacizumab given after a platinum-containing regimen, will not count as a separate line of therapy. - Tumor sample must be provided from both timepoints. 1. An archived tumor sample 2. A recent tumor biopsy (if medically feasible). If a recent biopsy cannot be obtained, enrollment requires written approval by the Sponsor Medical Monitor. Ovarian Cancer Exclusion Criteria for Expansion: - Low-grade, clear cell, endometrioid, mucinous, carcinosarcoma, germ-cell, or stromal tumors - Prior treatment with mirvetuximab soravtansine or another ADC containing an auristatin or maytansinoid payload - More than 2 prior lines of treatment with a taxane-containing regimen. - Primary platinum resistant disease, defined by a lack of response or progression within 3 months after completing front-line, platinum-containing therapy - Participation in the dose escalation segment of this study NSCLC Inclusion Criteria for Expansion: - Histological diagnosis of adenocarcinoma NSCLC, that is metastatic or recurrent - One prior treatment regimen with a platinum-based therapy and 1 prior treatment regimen with a PD-1 or PD-L1 monoclonal antibody (either in combination or sequentially). a. Patients previously treated with immunotherapy will require a washout phase of 4 weeks - Patients with known oncogenic mutations for which there are approved therapies e.g., ALK translocation, EGFR mutation, must have received appropriate targeted therapy in addition to a platinum-based regimen. Prior treatment with a PD1/L1 is not required for these patients. - One or 2 prior lines of chemotherapy - Head CT or MRI within 3 months prior to initiation of screening procedures or may be done during screening a.

This is a multi-center study of XMT-1536 (upifitamab rilsodotin) in patients with tumors

likely to express NaPi2b, focusing on patients with platinum-resistant ovarian cancer and

non-small cell lung cancer, adenocarcinoma subtype. XMT-1536 (upifitamab rilsodotin) will be

administered as an intravenous infusion once every four weeks. The study consists of three

segments: dose escalation (DES), dose expansion (EXP), and the pivotal cohort (UPLIFT). The

DES segment studied small groups of patients who received increased doses. A Safety Review

Committee was established to review the data from each dose level before moving to the next

higher dose. The dose escalation cohort has ended and is no longer enrolling patients.

Enrollment into the EXP segment consists of 2 parallel cohorts of patients to confirm the

dose that has been identified in DES and estimate the objective response rate in each patient

population. Enrollment into the pivotal cohort (UPLIFT) includes patients with

platinum-resistant ovarian cancer. All adverse events will be graded according to the

National Cancer Institute (NCI) Common Terminology Criteria version (CTCAE v5.0). Throughout

the study, pharmacokinetics will be measured using proprietary assays developed by Mersana.

Anti-cancer activity will be measured via RECIST.
