A Study to Evaluate Safety, Tolerability, Dosimetry, and Preliminary Efficacy of the HER2 Directed Radioligand CAM-H2 in Patients With Advanced/Metastatic HER2-Positive Breast, Gastric, and Gastro-Esophageal Junction (GEJ) Cancer

Not Recruiting

Trial ID: NCT04467515


This is a Phase 1/2 multi-center, open label, dose escalation and dose expansion study to evaluate safety, tolerability, dosimetry, pharmacodynamics (PD), and efficacy of the targeted radionuclide therapeutic CAM-H2 in patients with progressive, advanced/metastatic HER2-positive breast, gastric, and GEJ cancer with disease progression following anti-HER2 standard of care treatment. The study duration for each phase will be up to 18 months. The study is comprised of a Treatment Period, consisting of a maximum of 4 cycles (12 weeks per cycle) of study drug, and a 12-month Long-Term Follow-Up Period.

   performed, indicating that the patient understands the purpose of, and procedures
   required for, the study and is willing to participate in the study;

   cancer, refractory to standard cancer treatment.

   5. Patients should have a minimum of 1 measurable lesion as defined by RECIST version 1.1
   or a minimum of 1 measurable lesion as defined by RANO-BM within 4 weeks of the first
   dose of the study drug (Day 1). The lesion has to be a new lesion or progression of an
   existing lesion under the current therapy.

   6. Any previous anti-HER2 treatment for advanced or metastatic disease is allowed.
   Patients with breast cancer should have had at least 2 previous systemic anticancer
   treatments for recurrent, locally advanced or metastatic cancer. Patients with gastric
   cancer or GEJ cancer should have had at least 1 previous anti-HER2 treatment.

   7. Life expectancy > 6 months;

   8. Adequate organ function, determined by the following laboratory tests:

      - Adequate kidney function with an estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) of
      >59 mL/minute calculated using the Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology
      Collaboration equation;

      - Adequate hepatic function defined as an alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and
      aspartate aminotransferase (AST) <2.5 x the upper limit of normal (ULN), or <5 x
      ULN in patients with liver metastases, and total bilirubin <2 x ULN;

      - Neutrophil count >1500 cells/mm3 without growth factor support (14 days after
      last PEGylated granulocyte colony stimulating factor or 7 days after regular
      granulocyte colony stimulating factor);

      - Platelet count >100,000 cells/mm3 without platelet transfusion in the last 2

      - Hemoglobin >9.0 g/dL without blood transfusion in the last 2 weeks; and

      - Adequate coagulation defined as an international normalized ratio (INR) ≤1.5 and
      activated partial thromboplastin time <1.5 x the upper limit of the institutional
      normal range;

   9. Baseline left ventricular ejection fraction ≥ 50% as measured by echocardiography or
   multigated acquisition scan.

10. Absence of any psychological, family, sociological, or geographical circumstance that
   could potentially represent an obstacle to compliance with the study protocol and the
   follow-up schedule, as determined by the Investigator. These circumstances will be
   discussed with the patient before enrollment in the study; and

11. Female patients of childbearing potential (ie, ovulating, premenopausal, and not
   surgically sterile) must have a negative pregnancy test at screening and prior to
   study drug administration. Patients and their partners of childbearing potential must
   be willing to use 2 methods of contraception, 1 of which must be a barrier method, for
   the duration of the study and until 6 months after study drug administration.
   Medically acceptable barrier methods include condom with spermicide or diaphragm with
   spermicide. Medically acceptable non-barrier contraceptive methods include
   intrauterine devices or hormonal contraceptives (oral, implant, injection, ring, or
