[177Lu]-NeoB in Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors and With [68Ga]-NeoB Lesion Uptake

The purpose of the study is to establish whether the product NeoB, can be used, without any high risks and safety issues for the participant's health, in a theragnostic approach combining selection and therapy of the participant's advanced solid tumors characterized by an overexpression of Gastrin-Releasing Peptide Receptor (GRPR), a receptor normally present on some of your body cells.

Stanford is currently accepting patients for this trial.

14. Administration of a radiopharmaceutical with therapeutic intent within a period
   corresponding to 10 half-lives of the radionuclide used prior to injection of
   [68Ga]-NeoB (IMP2).

15. Prior External Beam Radiation Therapy (EBRT) to more than 25% of the bone marrow.

16. [223Ra]-therapy within the context of diffuse bone or bone-marrow involvement (i.e.
   "superscan" defined as bone scintigraphy in which there is excessive skeletal
   radioisotope uptake [>20 bone lesions] in relation to soft tissues along with absent
   or faint activity in the genitourinary tract due to diffuse bone/ bone marrow

17. Patients who have changed the dose of systemic steroid therapy within less than 2
   weeks prior to [177Lu]-NeoB (IMP1) administration or patients for whom steroid dose
   increase is anticipated during the study.

18. Patients who have received prior systemic anti-cancer treatment within the following
   time frames:

      - Cyclical chemotherapy within a period that is shorter than the cycle length used
      for that treatment (e.g. 6 weeks for nitrosourea, mitomycin-C) prior to starting
      [177Lu]-NeoB treatment

      - Biologic therapy (e.g. antibodies), continuous or intermittent small molecule
      therapeutics, or any other investigational agents within a period which is =< 5
      T1/2 or =< 4 weeks (whichever is shorter) prior to starting [177Lu]-NeoB

19. History of somatic or psychiatric disease/condition that may interfere with the
   objectives and assessments of the study.

20. Malignant disease, other than that being treated in this study. Exceptions to this
   exclusion include the following: malignancies that were treated curatively and have

   cell and squamous cell skin cancers; any malignancy considered to be indolent and that
   has never required therapy; and completely resected carcinoma in situ of any type.

21. Pregnant or breast-feeding women

22. Women of child-bearing potential, defined as all women physiologically capable of
   becoming pregnant, are not allowed to participate in this study UNLESS they are using
   highly effective methods of contraception throughout the study and for 6 months after
   study drug discontinuation. Highly effective contraception methods include:

      - True abstinence, when this is in line with the preferred and usual lifestyle of
      the patient. Periodic abstinence (e.g., calendar, ovulation, symptothermal,
      post-ovulation methods), declaration of abstinence for the duration of exposure
      to IMPs, and withdrawal are not acceptable methods of contraception.

      - Male or female sterilization. Vasectomised partner is a highly effective birth
      control method if the partner is the sole sexual partner of the study participant
      and the vasectomised partner has received medical assessment of the surgical

   Women tubal ligation is an acceptable highly effective contraception method, but
   surgical sterility is defined as bilateral salpingectomy (or bilateral oophorectomy or

   • Combination of any two of the following (a+b or a+c or b+c):

      1. Use of oral, injected, or implanted hormonal methods of contraception. In case of
      use of oral contraception, women should be stable on the same pill for a minimum
      of 3 months before taking [177Lu]-NeoB treatment.

      2. Placement of an intrauterine device (IUD) or intrauterine system (IUS)

      3. Barrier methods of contraception: condom or occlusive cap (diaphragm or
      cervical/vault caps) with spermicidal foam/gel/film/cream/vaginal suppository
      Post-menopausal women are allowed to participate in this study. Women are
      considered post-menopausal and not of child bearing potential if they have had 12
      months of natural (spontaneous) amenorrhea with an appropriate clinical profile
      (e.g. age appropriate, history of vasomotor symptoms) or six months of
      spontaneous amenorrhea with serum Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH) levels > 40
      mIU/mL [for US only: and estradiol < 20 pg/mL] or have had surgical bilateral
      oophorectomy or bilateral salpingectomy or hysterectomy or tubal ligation at
      least six weeks prior to screening. In the case of oophorectomy alone, only when
      the reproductive status of the woman has been confirmed by follow up hormone
      level assessment is she considered not of child bearing potential.

   Sexually active males must use a condom during intercourse while taking the drug and
   for 6 months after stopping treatment and should not father a child in this period. A
   condom is required to be used also by vasectomized men in order to prevent delivery of
   the drug via seminal fluid.

23. Participation in any other investigational trial at the time of informed consent

      - To be considered as valid to determine the eligibility of a patient, exam results
      of exclusion criteria #2, #3, #4, #5, #6, #7, #8, #10 (except QTcF parameter) and
      #11 must not be older than 1 month prior to [68Ga]-NeoB administration and must
      be available in the source documents for monitoring.
