Phase 1a / 1b Study of TPST-1495 in Subjects With Solid Tumors

Trial Status: Active

This is a first-in-human Phase 1a / 1b, multicenter, open-label, dose-escalation, dose and schedule optimization, and expansion study of TPST-1495 to determine its maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and or recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D), safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and preliminary anti-tumor activity in subjects with advanced solid tumors. Subjects with all histologic types of solid tumors are eligible for the study. However, the preferred tumor types for enrollment are colorectal cancer (CRC), non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (SCCHN), urothelial cancer, endometrial cancer, and gastroesophageal junction (GEJ) or gastric adenocarcinoma.

Inclusion Criteria

  • Subjects must meet all the following inclusion criteria to be eligible: 1. Subjects must have a histologically-confirmed malignancy that is metastatic or unresectable for which there is no remaining standard therapy known to confer clinical benefit. While all solid tumor types are eligible for the study, there is a preference to enroll patients with colorectal cancer, squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck, urothelial cancer, endometrial cancer, NSCLC, and gastric or gastroesophageal junction adenocarcinoma. 2. Subjects must have a tumor that is at least 1 cm in a single dimension and is radiographically apparent on CT or MRI. 3. Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group performance status of 0 or 1 at treatment initiation. 4. Life expectancy estimated to be ≥ 12 weeks 5. Adequate organ and marrow function (subjects must not have received transfusions or growth factor support within 1 month prior to first dose of investigational product) as defined below: - Albumin ≥ 3.0 g/dL - Hemoglobin ≥ 10.0 g/dL - Absolute neutrophil count ≥ 1,000/mm3 - Platelet count ≥ 100,000/mm3 - Bilirubin ≤ 1.5 × institutional upper limit of normal (ULN); for subjects with documented/suspected Gilbert's disease, bilirubin should be ≤ 2 × ULN. - Aspartate transaminase (AST) and alanine transaminase (ALT) ≤ 2.5 × ULN; for subjects with liver metastases, AST or ALT ≤ 5 × ULN - Creatinine ≤ 1.5×ULN OR calculated creatinine clearance (CrCl) ≥ 60 mL/min for subjects with creatinine levels > 1.5× ULN. Subjects who meet any of the following exclusion criteria will not be eligible to receive investigational product: 1. Concurrent enrollment in another clinical study, unless it is an observational (non interventional) clinical study, a specimen-collection study or the follow-up period of an interventional study. 2. Received more than 4 doses of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or COX-2 inhibitors within 2 weeks prior to study treatment initiation. 3. History of allergy or hypersensitivity, GI bleed, or ulceration secondary to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or COX-2 inhibitors. 4. History of GI ulcer within 1 year of treatment initiation or history of untreated helicobacter pylori infection. Subjects with history of treated helicobacter pylori infection with confirmation of eradication are eligible 5. History of diverticulitis or any GI bleed within 2 years of treatment initiation. 6. Receipt of any anticancer therapy within the following windows: - Small molecule tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) therapy (including investigational) within 2 weeks or 5 half-lives prior to treatment initiation, whichever is longer - Any type of anti-cancer antibody or cytotoxic chemotherapy within 4 weeks prior to treatment initiation - Radiation therapy for bone metastasis within 2 weeks, any other external radiation therapy within 4 weeks before treatment initiation. Patients with clinically relevant ongoing complications from prior radiation therapy are not eligible - Other investigational therapy within 2 weeks or 5 half-lives prior to dosing, whichever is longer 7. Subjects with active or untreated central nervous system (CNS) metastases 8. New York Heart Association Classification II, III or IV. 9. Baseline QTcF > 470 milliseconds 10. Receipt of live attenuated vaccines within 30 days prior to the first dose of investigational product. (Killed virus or other non-live vaccines are allowed (including most seasonal influenza vaccines, streptococcus pneumonia vaccines, and newly approved COVID-19 vaccines). 11. Active autoimmune disease or inflammatory disorders including inflammatory bowel disease (e.g., ulcerative colitis or Crohn's disease) requiring systemic treatment (i.e., with use of disease modifying agents, systemic corticosteroids or immunosuppressive drug) within 2 years prior to treatment initiation. 12. Known human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection, active Hepatitis B (HBV), or hepatitis C (HCV). Active HBV is defined as a known positive HBsAg result. Active HCV is defined by a known positive HCV antibody result and known quantitative HCV RNA results greater than the lower limits of detection of the assay. Patients receiving antiviral therapy for Hepatitis B or C also are not eligible 13. Uncontrolled intercurrent illness, including but not limited to, ongoing or active infection, symptomatic congestive heart failure, uncontrolled hypertension, unstable angina pectoris, cardiac arrhythmia, serious chronic gastrointestinal conditions associated with diarrhea, or psychiatric illness/social situations including a history of substance abuse that would limit compliance with study requirement, substantially increase risk of incurring AEs or compromise the ability of the patient to give written informed consent. 14. Subjects who are receiving anti-coagulant therapy or who are considered to be at increased risk of bleeding (i.e bleeding disorder or coagulopathy). 15. Administration of the following substrates for drug transporters OATP1B1 and OATP1B3 is prohibited while on study or within 7 days of treatment initiation: glyburide, digoxin, docetaxel, paclitaxel, pitavastatin, rosuvastatin, simvastatin or saquinavir

This is a first-in-human Phase 1a/1b, multicenter, open-label, dose-escalation, dose and

schedule optimization, and expansion study of TPST-1495 to determine its MTD, safety,

tolerability, pharmacokinetics (PD), pharmacodynamics (PK) and preliminary anti-tumor

activity in subjects with advanced solid tumors. Subjects with all histologic types of solid

tumors are eligible for the study. However, the preferred tumor types for enrollment are

colorectal cancer (CRC), non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), squamous cell carcinoma of the

head and neck (SCCHN), urothelial cancer, endometrial cancer, and gastroesophageal junction

(GEJ) or gastric adenocarcinoma. Tumor prostaglandin production and downstream signaling in

both tumor cells and other cell types, including immune suppressive cell population in the

tumor microenvironment, is thought to be a principal driver of progression in each of these

selected malignancies. To be eligible, subjects must have no remaining standard therapy known

to confer clinical benefit.

The study is composed of 3 stages. The Dose-Escalation stage will determine the MTD of

single-agent TPST-1495 administered twice a day (BID). The Schedule and Dose Optimization

stage will evaluate alternative TPST-1495 administration schedules and determine an RP2D for

the selected schedule. The Expansion stage will evaluate the activity of TPST-1495 at the

selected schedule and dose in disease-specific cohorts.
