Studio Clinico

Patologia: Epatocarcinoma, Neoplasie della mammella, Neoplasie dello stomaco, Tumori cutanei non melanoma, Tumori della testa e del collo, Altre neoplasie

Osservazionale-Sperimentale: Sperimentale

Monocentrico-Multicentrico: Monocentrico

Linee di trattamento: Non applicabile

Criteri di inclusione: 

  • Locally-advanced disease that is not amenable to surgery or radiation, or Stage IV advanced/metastatic solid tumor malignancies
  • Histologically- or cytologically-confirmed diagnosis of an advanced/metastatic solid tumor.
  • Measurable disease by RECIST 1.1 criteria as assessed by investigator. Target lesions in a previously irradiated area will be considered measurable if progression has been demonstrated in such lesions
  • Submitted a baseline tumor sample for analysis. Participants enrolling in Part 2 Cohorts D-F may enroll without submitting a tumor sample if all other enrollment criteria are met.
  • Performance status of 0 or 1 on the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) Performance Scale obtained within 72 hours prior to the first dose of study intervention
  • If participant has known human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-positive disease, participant must have well-controlled HIV on antiretroviral therapy (ART), per study criteria.
  • Adequate organ function
  • Male participants are eligible to participate if they agree to the following during the intervention period and for at least 120 days: Be abstinent from heterosexual intercourse as their preferred and usual lifestyle and agree to remain abstinent, OR must agree to use contraception unless confirmed to be azoospermic.
  • Female participants are eligible to participate if she is not pregnant or breastfeeding, and at least one of the following conditions applies:
    - Is not a woman of childbearing potential (WOCBP)
    - Is a WOCBP and using a contraceptive method that is highly effective, or be abstinent from heterosexual intercourse as their preferred and usual lifestyle (abstinent on a long term and persistent basis), during the intervention period and for at least 120 days after the last dose of study intervention.
  • Contraceptive use by women should be consistent with local regulations regarding the methods of contraception for those participating in clinical studies.
  • Part 1, All Cohorts: participants must have at least one injectable lesion amenable to injection and/or biopsy.
  • Part 1, Cohort A:
    - Locally recurrent, inoperable OR metastatic breast cancer treated with at least 1 prior line of therapy in the metastatic setting with skin involvement and/or subcutaneous lesions or accessible lymph nodes amenable to local injection. An exception would be allowed for participants who are not eligible to receive chemotherapy.
    - Diagnosis of triple-negative breast cancer (estrogen receptor, progesterone receptor, and HER2-receptor negative status)
  • Part 1, Cohort B:
    - Histologically confirmed advanced or metastatic head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) of the oral cavity, oropharynx, hypopharynx, and/or larynx considered incurable and/or treated with no more than 1 previous line of therapy
    - Tumors must be PD-L1+
    - Documentation of HPV status for oropharyngeal cancers. Other HNSCC subtypes may submit HPV testing, but is not required.
  • Part 1, Cohort C:
    - Histologically confirmed cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC) as the primary site of malignancy
    - Recurrent/metastatic disease only: Has metastatic disease defined as disseminated disease distant from the initial/primary site of diagnosis and/or with a history of locally-recurrent disease previously treated with surgery and/or radiotherapy, which is now incurable
    - Locally-advanced disease only: Must be ineligible for surgical resection per study criteria, and must have received prior radiation therapy to the index site or deemed ineligible for radiation therapy
  • Part 2, Solid Tumors+Liver Metastases Dose Level 1-3 arms:
    - Histologically-confirmed advanced/metastatic solid tumor that has progressed on all treatment known to confer clinical benefit
    - Metastatic liver lesion(s) not exceeding one-third of the total liver volume AND a minimum of one injectable liver lesion
  • Part 2, Cohort D:
    - Advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) following progression on, or intolerance to, sorafenib or lenvatinib with no curative options
    - Diagnosis of HCC confirmed by radiology, histology, or cytology
    - Child-Pugh Class A score
    - If a participant has a history of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection, then he/she must have been successfully treated for this condition
    - Controlled (treated) hepatitis B participants will be allowed if they meet protocol-specified criteria
    - Participants who are anti-hepatitis B core (HBc) positive, negative for hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg), negative or positive for anti-hepatitis B surface (HBs), and who have an HBV viral load under 100 IU/mL, do not require HBV anti-viral prophylaxis
  • Part 2, Cohort E:
    - Histologically- or cytologically-confirmed diagnosis of locally advanced, unresectable or metastatic gastric or gastroesophageal junction (GEJ) adenocarcinoma
    - Received at least one prior line of therapy that includes a platinum/fluoropyrimidine doublet or triplet regimen
    - Had proven clinical progression 6 months following (or during) last dose of adjuvant or neo-adjuvant therapy
    - Human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) negative status; or, those with HER2 positive status AND documented disease progression on a prior regimen containing trastuzumab

  • If major or minor surgery was performed at/near the area being considered for injection, participant must be recovered from toxicity and/or complications of intervention
  • If participant has had injection or radiation therapy, participant must be recovered from toxicity and/or complications of intervention
  • History of second malignancy, unless potentially curative treatment has been completed with no further evidence of malignancy
  • Known active central nervous system (CNS) metastases and/or carcinomatous meningitis. Participants with treated brain metastases may participate if lesions are radiologically stable.
