A Dose Escalation and Cohort Expansion Study of NKTR-214 in Combination With Nivolumab and Other Anti-Cancer Therapies in Patients With Select Advanced Solid Tumors

In this four-part study, NKTR-214 will be administered in combination with nivolumab in Part 1, in combination with nivolumab with or without various chemotherapies in Part 2, and with nivolumab in Parts 3 & 4. In Part 1, the Recommended Phase 2 Dose (RP2D) of NKTR-214 in combination with nivolumab will be determined. In Part 2, NKTR-214 with nivolumab at the RP2D will be evaluated as first-line therapy and/or as second or third line therapy in select patients with Melanoma, Renal Cell Carcinoma (RCC), Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC), Urothelial Carcinoma (UC), triple negative Breast Cancer (TNBC), HR+/HER2- breast cancer, gastric cancer, and Colorectal Cancer (CRC). In addition, in Part 2, the RP2D of NKTR-214 with nivolumab and various chemotherapies and regimens in select cohorts of NSCLC patients will be determined. In Part 3, several different regimens of the doublet combination of NKTR-214 plus nivolumab will be evaluated in select patients with RCC, NSCLC, Melanoma, and UC. In Part 4, the safety and efficacy of the doublet combination will be evaluated further in select patients with RCC, NSCLC, Melanoma and UC.
