Introduction: Signal Regulatory Protein α [SIRPα] is a polymorphic protein, strongly expressed on myeloid suppressive cells. BI 765063 (OSE172), a humanized IgG4 monoclonal antibody (mAb), is a selective antagonist of SIRPα/CD47 interaction, it does not bind to SIRP ɣ, known to assist T cell co-stimulation and migration. BI 765063 strongly binds V1 allele, one of the 2 major functional allele of SIRPα expressed in more than 80% of general population and Asian (in 60%).
Anti-tumor effect was shown in various in vivo cancer models using the validated anti-mouse SIRPα mAbs surrogate, as single agent. The effect was more pronounced in combination with T checkpoint inhibitors (Gauttier V et al, 2018). BI 765063 mechanism of action includes promotion of tumor-antigen-presentation while preserving T-cell activation and increase tumor phagocytosis.
This first in human (FIH) study is aiming at evaluating the safety, pharmacokinetics (PK), pharmacodynamics (PD), and preliminary efficacy of BI 765063 as monotherapy and in combination a mAb antagonist to PD-1 receptor (with BI 754091), in patients with advanced solid tumours.
Methods: This study comprises a dose escalation (step 1) to determine the Dose-Limiting Toxicities, Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD), and Recommended Phase 2 Dose (RP2Ds) of BI 765063 monotherapy and with BI 754091, and dose-confirmation expansion cohorts (step 2).
In Step 1, ascending dose of BI 763063 once every 3 weeks intravenously (iv) using a Bayesian approach with overdose control are tested. When MTD determined, BI 763063 will be tested with BI 754091, a PD1 mAb inhibitor. In step 2, 2 parallel randomized, non-comparative mono and combination cohorts will further confirm the RP2Ds and assess the safety and preliminary efficacy (RECIST 1.1 and iRECIST).
Patients ≥ 18 years, PS:0-1, with advanced solid tumor who failed or are not eligible to standard therapy will be included. V1/V1 and V1/V2 patients (central testing) are evaluated in separate cohorts in step 1. In step 2 selected population of V1/V1 patients with advanced-stage cancers (e.g. non-small cell lung cancer, triple negative breast cancer, or gastro-intestinal cancers) will be included.
Pharmacokinetics (PK), SIRPα receptor occupancy (RO) and a comprehensive translational program (in blood and tumour) will assess PK/PD profile and biomarkers of activity.
A total of 116 (56 in step 1 and 60 in step 2) patients will be enrolled.
Results: This trial is currently in progress.
Conclusions: The trial is currently active and plans to assess the safety profile and preliminary efficacy of BI 765063, a first in class myeloid check point inhibitor antagonist of SIRPα on myeloid cells.
